no, jack is a sound server aimed for real-time pro-audio usage. It only
provides audio and MIDI routing. Jack is not a host for plug-ins, jack
does no sample rate conversion, jack doesn't provide volume controls
and such features. Jack needs a backend to use a hardware audio
device. Apps need to support jack to use jack. IOW you need a LV2
host that has got jack support.
