Since you have to calculate the input delay and set in in qjackctl this line should be removed from the home page:

"Automatic track delay compensation"

From what I read, this was true in the past, but it is not real anymore.

@francecortiz: no, this is still true. It refers to delay compensation to adjust for latency-creating plugins inside Ardour. The last few releases of Ardour 2.X have had some subtle bugs in a related but distinct area: aligning newly recorded material with existing material. This will be fixed in 2.8.12 (soon to be released). You will still have to set the "systemic" delays caused your analog/digital converters if you want Ardour to get things precisely correct, because nothing (not even the device driver) can determine these values.
