    Your English is very fine, not bad at all. Please don't worry about 

    I think the results you are getting are correct. At that point in 
the process LS would have no inputs or outputs. To make it add them you 
would have to go to another terminal or machine and, using a telnet 
session to port 8888, tell it to add them using commands in the LSCP 
document. Then you would see them in QJackCtl.

    None of that is fun, so I refuse... ;-)

    A much easier way to use this would be to use Rui's QSampler 
application. It's Gui based and runs over the top of LS, making LS 
appear more like a stand-alone synth. It's linked form the LS home page, 
but to make it easier here you go:


Have fun LinuxSampling! ;-)
