Re: [SOLVED] audio crackling in duplex mode

I'm happy you got it working, and sorry for the bad advice on how to interact with pulseaudio, I know a bit about JACK though :) I don't know pulseaudio well, I just load the modules after I've started JACK1 and it works. Your case is a bit different. I just tried your solution and was amazed that a...

Re: Drop outs with zita bridge in Cadence

Can we switch computers and the monitoring setup? :mrgreen: Alsa bridge is crackling since I use it and that happened with kxstudio 14.04 and on debian. I can't believe it's normal. But beside of the crackling the sound of the zita bridge is better. You will hear the difference with sine tones or b...

Re: audio crackling in duplex mode

I'm not sure how to stop the zita bridge after I close/stop qjackctl and jack2dbus Try adding "pkill zita-a2j; pkill zita-j2a;" to "execute script after shutdown" in qjackctl. Though thinking about it I suppose that it ought to die by itself when you kill the JACK server. My rec...

Re: audio crackling in duplex mode

@pablo @jack winter Thanx again for your help. I installed the pulseaudio packages, and tested to see if I had sound and what pavucontrol looked like. everything is cool. Output devices listed the SB interface and Input devices listed the Scarlett 2i2. I launched qjackctl and left the config the sa...

Re: Experiences with Bodhi Linux?

It doesn't usually matter, but when I get into large amounts of audio multitracks, nowadays I have to increase my audio buffer in REAPER and that starts to hamper MIDI overdubbing. And earlier in the year I even had some recorded buffer underruns which messed up my WAVs. That's pretty rare for me a...

Re: audio crackling in duplex mode

Yes. You run JACK on one soundcard and you use the zita utilities to connect another soundcard for either input or output. This is the basic sound setup around the JACK server. If you want sound output from other programs that aren't JACK aware (like browsers, games, whatever), then you use pulseaud...

Re: audio crackling in duplex mode

Good. This is the base setup where everything passes JACK. IMO you would only use pulseaudio to output audio from browsers/games/etc to jack and then let it play back on whatever sound card you want to. IIRC you are on Archlinux so this ought to work out of the box. Install pulseaudio and pulseaudio...

Re: KXRepos and Debian - Am I screwed?

wine-rt is nothing special. It's just the result of applying a patch that allows windows elevated priority threads to run as sched_fifo threads on linux. So if you don't use windows apps or vsts, then just remove it. No need for it. At the most it will reduce xruns at low latency if using windows st...

Re: audio crackling in duplex mode

Then I misunderstood. In that case run JACK either on the hw:USB or hw:SB device, and connect the other's input/outputs (depending on what you want) with the zita utilities. No need to use only capture or playback for the device JACK is using. You might need to make connections in the qjackctl GUI, ...

Re: audio crackling in duplex mode

My advice would be to leave PA out of it until you have figured out how to do this with JACK. It can only complicate things :) Apart from checking that the audacious output goes to the zita client, you might have to run alsamixer to check the levels and that nothing is muted. Also check that zita-j2...

Re: audio crackling in duplex mode

@Pablo, his USB card is just a microphone, no outputs at all on it.

Audio: Playback only interface: hw:SB server prefix: jack_control start Execute script after start: zita-a2j -d hw:USB -r 48000 & This allows my audio to be played as well as bridging in my mic for recording. best part is, ran some tests and no xruns! Good, you might even want to run full duple...

Re: audio crackling in duplex mode

I think that you ought to leave pulseaudio out of this, use that for playback from browsers etc. Set up JACK to run on your SB device and get input / output working with audacity without xruns. Then use zita-ajbridge to add your USB device to the existing jack server. Regarding if you ought to be co...

Re: audio crackling in duplex mode

At the risk of being repetitive. For this to work you'd need soundcards that are synced, in your case you don't have them so using separate input and output on 2 cards isn't going to work well, neither is concatenating them into a single device. On Archlinux the pulseaudio/jack2 part ought to work w...

Re: Pulseaudio to remote with Cadence

Don't know how to do this with pulseaudio, but if you are using JACK on both systems, you can try zita-njbridge.
