What is a JACK port?

It's a unidirectional (input or output) data connection point that can be for the transmission of time sensitive single channel audio or MIDI information.

An audio output port can be connected to multiple input ports and an input port can take connection from multiple output ports. When two ports are connected audio data passes from the output port to the input port. An input port will mix together the audio of all connected output ports. The audio routing of IDJC to the soundcard happens via JACK ports.

Ports available

In the IDJC main application window main menu under JACK Ports are the classifications referred to in the table below and in their submenu the ports concerned.
