Yups, see my previous examples with asoundrc example. This is quite nice
way to achieve simultaneous recording+monitoring.

Hmm, this is a clever idea. :) But, but, you'd still have the problem that
JACK could kick the clients (=ecasound) out when disconnecting

As for the syntax, it should be "jack_generic,monitor". Also, the
"jack_generic" variant just publishes the ports, but doesn't connect
anything. So a better one would be:

ecasound -a rec,mon -i alsahw,1,0,0 -a rec -o file.wav -a mon -o jack -G:jack,ecarec
ecasignalview jack_auto:ecarec null

The first one will appear as client "ecarec", with ports "out_1", "out_2",
etc. Ecasignalview will automatically connect to the "ecarec" client and
its ports.
