Re: Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 with jackd: Unknown driver "hw:USB"

I have this with the 18i20 Gen 1 sometimes , interface gone in Linux and Windows at boot (no lsusb). Power of, boot the OS, back again. works. \Weird. Sometimes Qjackctrl dus gives DBUS error. Reboot. ok. does not happens so often, once the 18i20 runs, it's solid as a rock.

Re: Synthesizer with build-in USB-MIDI/Audio-Interface

MIDI :Tested myself: DSI REV2, P6, P12 and, Roland Integra 7 all work. Devices not being USB MDI compliant are becoming very rare. You can always plug a USB/MIDI interface via MIDI DIN in between, like the 2x2, 4x4 or a Mio Audio: Very few Synths have USB Audio. Roland AIRA products all support audi...

Focusrite 18i20 Gen2 ALSA mixer support

According to Focusrite the USB implementation of the Gen 2 should not be (much) different than on the Gen 1.
In that case, perhaps a simple kernel update to ALSA to add the vendor / device ID would just do to get it to work.
Just need someone who has the Gen2 and can add/test such change....

Re: Future Linux audio hardware Interface support

Take a look at this recent thread about TB(3) on Windows and Intel chipset/firmware/driver issues. Probably enough to stay away from TB3. I have to say I was a pretty happy Thunderbolt 2 user (on the Mac) and bought and used a big long chain of TB2 docks and equipment. The Windows world's implementa...

Re: MOTU LP32 USB/AVB to 4 ADAT

Contacted MOTU. According to MOTU the LP32 should be able to be seen in Linux. (via USB) The LP32 device does not support Linux nor Windows over AVB, only Mac. It has a web/network interface, so I guess configuration changes can be made via the HTML web interface. Thus no ALSA Mixer needed. (Not sur...

Re: Beyond 16 channels

Thanks ! It's just that Firewire is being phased out. How long more for Windows/Mac to support it as well.... Just got an OctoPre MKII dynamic and just 2 months later it was phased out of production by the lower spec'ed (audio wise) Scarlett but with 96Khz support. Though it's ADAT so still (re) use...

MOTU LP32 USB/AVB to 4 ADAT

Has anyone tried this if this works under Linux for USB 2.0 ? (and wishful thinking AVB if anyone has a Ethernet card supporting AVB) The spec states "1 x USB 2.0 audio class compliant " => This gives hope. Really thinking about to get this. (Even if just able to use it under Windows 10) h...

RME Digiface USB to 4 ADAT

RME confirmed that the USB interface is not USB audio compliant and does not support Linux.
This would have been an ideal, low cost, solution to get up to 16 + channels reusing existing interfaces with ADAT.

Re: Support of audio interfaces under Linux

Hope someday we see a project started to design a USB / AVB / TB3 hardware interface for Linux. The project could start based on a open hardware development board supporting AVB/TB3/USB and then develop the kernel driver and software support under Linux over a few years by this community. Just like ...

Re: Focusrite Scarlett 18i20 2nd generation record only at 44,1 or 48 kHz

The first problem is that Linux does not support the Gen2 mixer interface in (used by alsamixer). The second problem is (like the Gen 1) is that the support misses something in the interface to set the sample rate (and several other settings). There should be a USB command supporting this that shoul...

Re: Beyond 16 channels with audio hardware interfaces

Thanks for the replies. Firewire is getting phased out and Thunderbolt isn't available on Linux. AVB/DANTE isn't there as well. Then there is the RMA MADI option , but expensive. Does anyone have a USB/MADI setup using for example te MADIFACE PRO USB or MADIFACE XT and then a MADI to ADAT convertor ...

Re: Focusrite Scarlett Second Generation

Hi, if it works but the controls not show in alsamixer, then it looks to me Focusrte Gen 2 broke ALSA support , Just having audio only would be the same situation I had before the kernel was updated for for 18i20 support in the ALSA code. Guess FR created a new USB device ID and they may have change...
