It's NOT the same as ubuntu....

Turn on your Fast track pro, then launch qjackctl:

If running JACK2 and ONLY for JACK2 place -S after jackd in Server prefix like this:

jackd -S

Enable realtime
Priority (leave as default for now)
Frames/Period 256
Sample Rate 44100
Periods/Buffer 3 (3 is mostly used in USB and Firewrie devices, 2 for PCI)

Leave "Interface" as default and select:

Dither: None
Audio: Duplex
Input Device: hw:X,1
Output Device: hw:X,0

Where X is the number for the Fast Track Pro shown in the drop-down menu in the device list

Make sure the A/B switch next to the headphone monitoring plug is in the out position if monitoring with headphones for this setting.

I advice you to give my blog a good (although painful and boring) read whether you get good or bad results/performance from your Fast Track Pro:
