I did some dorking around with my studio control settings and got things working for my main use cases AWESOMELY, but a fly in the ointment remains being that occasionally some app or process will switch my qjackctl settings and patch my pulse_out to my Controller,0,0-out, which cuts the audio level significantly suddenly and I have to go back and disconnect the new connection and repatch pulse_out to system. I am doing this every day sometimes multiple times a day.

Everything else is *so* awesome though I am willing to suffer this as my personal valheim, hehe.
