Its also not true (if I understand correctly). Rewire only allows linking of
dynamic objects, whereas jack can also link whole processes. ReWire
appears to work with a host/client architecture, whereas a JACK graph is
made up of peers.
This combionation makes JACK a) more flexible, b) more robust. At least
in theory ;)
PS ReWire was created by Propellerhead, not Steinberg.
