Are your alsa capture ports working?  Narrow the problem down, it
probably has nothing to do with AMS at all.

Connect your capture ports to meterbridge and see what's going on.  If
you don't have meterbridge, get it. :)

Chances are you've got some mixer settings (ie in alsamixer) that aren't
set right if you're not getting any audio into Jack.

I'm thinking mixer settings for sure then.  I've never had the AMS
pcm-in module not work, and I used to use it for effects processing all
the time.

There is a LADSPA control->audio interpolator, but I havn't seen a
plugin that does the other way around (it is a pretty nasty thing to do,
conceptually).  It would be nice to have one around sometimes though.
