Hi everyone,

sorry i wasn't there this week-end.
Glad you found the solution for the LASH problem.

For the jack problem, did you open a file ? Without any file opened, both
tranches and tapeutape don't create any audio ports, because you can
define the number of IO ports in the .tra and .tap files. Try with the
command : "tapeutape example.tap" or "Open file" from the menu.

Look in the example files for more explanations. I know that xml files are
not exactly "user-friendly" and that's why the upcoming versions will have
gui's to tweak the options and create the instruments.
New versions (more features  and a lot of bug fixes ) should be released
in september.

Hope this helps ;)
