Re: Focusrite Scarlett Gen 3 4i4 (and others)

Great news! I suggest trying to contact Focusrite if you have not already. They may be willing to provide you with hardware, especially considering your track record of success with the second generation devices. Yeah, I have contacted Focusrite support a couple of times. Both times they said they'...

Focusrite Scarlett Gen 3 4i4 (and others)

Hi all, A really generous guy just out of the blue purchased me a Scarlett 4i4 Gen 3 as a thank you for writing the Scarlett Gen 2 Linux driver. Of course I right away had a look as to its Linux compatibility and whether I'd be able to write a Gen 3 driver. Here's what I found... TL;DR: The class-co...

Re: Focusrite Scarlett 18i20 Gen 3

Has anyone had any success getting the Focusrite 18i20 3rd Gen interface going with Ubuntu 18.04? Particularly in terms of setting up its mixer functions? My searching on this topic has been inconclusive. Please excuse me if this question duplicates another thread. Thanks much. Hi kc7gr, I can't co...

Re: Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 and 18i8 2nd Gen mixer driver

@geoffrey you are amazing!!! I just tested the kernel you packaged and can confirm that the scarlett 6i6 hardware mixer can be controlled via alsamixer using this kernel! this is AWESOME! The only thing that did not work as far as I can tell now is setting the -20db pads. I created a short screenca...

Re: Focusrite Scarlett 18i20 2nd Gen mixer driver

Hi xkr47, Thanks very much for your review! I really appreciate you taking the time to go through the code. It seems to me that the scarlett2_device_info.ports array is indexed by the SCARLETT2_PORT_TYPE_* enums; if so there seems to be a bug in the 6i6 metadata; there is no entry for SCARLETT2_PORT...

Re: Focusrite Scarlett 18i20 2nd Gen mixer driver

Hi xkr47, I think this thread need a little update acording to focusrite scarlett 2 gen, since kernel version 5.4-rc1 the mixerdriver has been available. https://github.com/torvalds/linux/commit/9e4d5c1be21f0c00e747e92186784f3298309b3e 3 just clone and compile and have fun :slight_smile: Good times ...

Re: Focusrite Scarlett 18i20 2nd Gen mixer driver

geoffrey, how confident are you that you could get a 3rd gen scarlett working in Linux with access to usb dumps? I recall you wrote something about that earlier but couldn't find the post so.. Since the 3rd gen Scarletts are shipped in Mass Storage Device mode (as their support informed me) it woul...

Re: Focusrite Scarlett 18i20 2nd Gen mixer driver

FYI, I've now got the USB dump from the Focusrite driver initialising an older gen 2 interface that I was after. Hopefully I can do something good with it :-).

Re: Focusrite Scarlett 18i20 2nd Gen mixer driver

1. How is the driver enabled? With module options "scarlett_gen2_mixer_enable=1" for v5.1.15s7 and "device_setup=1" for v5.2.2s9. The module will print the required option to the kernel log (seen with dmesg/journalctl) if it's not enabled. Although, I've found if you have more t...

Re: Focusrite Scarlett 18i20 2nd Gen mixer driver

Hi Geoffrey, Amazing work! Thanks for being patient and devoting your time for this! Been planning to buy an usb interface for some time and this lets allows me to get the bigger Scarlett versions (thinkign of 18i8 right now) instead of having to consider other brands. Thank you, and you're welcome...
