I got it working through Jack. I installed multimedia-firewire from synaptic and all the dependencies that come with it.

Jack would'nt see the Motu only by doing this you need these extra steps found here: https://linuxmusicians.com/viewtopic.php?t=19429

To blacklist ALSA firewire so you can run FFADO do this:
- Add line to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf:
blacklist snd_dice
- update initramfs and reboot your system:
$ update-initramfs -u
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-4.4.30-rt41-avl2

The "update-initramfs -u" command regenerates /boot/initrd.img-XXX which is used in booting to tell which modules to load. You do not want snd_dice to load. If "lsmod | grep snd_dice" still shows something then you have not blacklist snd_dice. After snd_dice is disabled you can select the "firewire" driver in qjackctl to use FFADO.


Not sure if this was the best solution but it works, it seems Alsa does not see Motu Ultralite Mk1.
