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

Hi Ika! Welcome! One thing I haven't seen addressed anywhere are some of the buttons and knobs on the device itself, as some of them don't work like I expected. For example the Monitor knob doesn't seem to be doing anything, the device stays at full volume all the time and the only way to make it qu...

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

This is just to report that the 2i2 version 3 on Ubuntu Studio 20.04 works out of the box. It is a huge improvement over the performance of the soundcard built in to the motherboard. I am just mentioning this because I had doubts before buying it and I could not find confirmation that it would work...

Re: Focusrite Scarlett 18i20 2nd Gen mixer driver

I'm using Ubuntu Studio 20.04, 5.4.0-37-lowlatency kernel. Thanks for trying to test the driver! It got in...

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

cjoke! That's it! With your hint I can reproduce the problem now! I first thought the issue was with older Scarlett hardware versions, but your testing showed that wasn't the case. So I thought the issue was with older PCs, but also no (kind of). The problem seems to be related to the type of USB ho...

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

Hi assapan, Now I would be happy to deploy your driver on my system, but honestly I not an expert in Linux/Ubuntu field of compiling drivers: I attempted to download the sources from the Git repository, then I understood it's glued into 5.7.1s1 kernel code, so basically I am lost on what should I do...

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...

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'...
