I'm assuming that you're running jack on your system.  This happens occasionally with me, and I usually just run top to find out the process ID for jackd, and then use the kill command to stop it, and then restart it with something like 
jackd -R -d alsa -r 44100 
or what have you.  Hope this helps, I'm not Linux guru!

Read my thoughts.


"The bigger things get the smaller and duller or flatter the globe gets.  It is getting to be all one blasted little provincial suburb. When they have introduced American sanitation, morale-pep, feminism, and mass production throughout the Near East, Middle East, Far East, USSR, the Pampas, el Gran Chaco, the Danubian Basin, Equatorial Africa, Hither Further and Inner Mumbo-land, Gondhwanaland, Lhasa, and the villages of darkest Berkshire, how happy we shall be."
