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

Hi Harold, Hello everyone :-) I'm joining this thread because I'm trying to set up my Scarlett 6i6 2nd generation on my linux machine. I'm running Xubuntu 19.10 with kernel Linux 5.4.1-050401-lowlatency (this is what I get when I type uname -rs on the terminal). However I can't see any available con...

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

Hi cobreces, Thank you for trying to test the driver! I have just tested the deb packages of kernel 5.4.0-rc6s10 in my debian jessie box and tried to connect a Scarlett 6i6 2nd generation. Please upgrade to 5.4.1 first; there are known issues with the 6i6 support in 5.4.0 and it won't work very well...

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

The release notes for Linux 5.4 mention this driver: https://kernelnewbies.org/Linux_5.4#Audio Serious congrats! This makes me want to go out and get that second-gen 18i8 that I keep pretending that I "need" :lol: Woohoo! And 5.4.1 is out too, so it will work for the 6i6 as well :D. https://lkml.or...

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

Hi Martin, Hi! I just tested your updated kernel and yes the I/O channels now default to relatively useful settings: - PCM 1-6 (inputs) use analogue 1-4 and spdif 1-2 - Analog out 1-4 use PCM 1-4 - Spdif out 1-2 use PCM 5-6 - the clock is set to internal Thanks for testing! That is how it's meant to...

Reading this thread it seems there's a lot of progress being made :o I've bought a Focusrite Scarlett Solo 3rd gen, will my device benefit from these W.I.P. drivers ? I'm always willing to he...

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'...

Hi xkr47, Thanks very much for your review! I really appreciate you taking the time to go through the code.

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...
