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...

Hi xkr47, I'm pretty confident that I *wouldn't* be able to do it from dumps only; I would need the interf...

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

This will end my dualboot! Thanks :D I have 18i20 and octopre 2gen and using HWmonitoring 16 preamps for liverecordings. Routing the line outputs to an external analogue mixer. This is a gamechanger for me! Thanks again! :) YW cjoke! The Linux driver is perfect for this purpose. Although alsamixer ...

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...

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

Yeah no worries. So I just install the kernel, boot into it and open alsamixer? To enable the driver you'll also need to create a file /etc/modprobe.d/scarlett.conf containing the line "options snd_usb_audio scarlett_gen2_mixer_enable=1" before you boot the new kernel. I'm more than happy...

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

I will be able to test this in the next few days, I have one on order. Hi sysrqer, Thanks! Could you do me a favour please? If you wouldn't mind *not* plugging it into a Windows or Mac computer and *not* trying the Focusrite software before trying my driver, that'd be great. Some people have had is...

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

For the pad issue, I'm wondering if you pressed the correct key? It's really not obvious, but you need to use Space to toggle the pad in alsamixer, not Up/Down like it is to control the level select. Something rather amusing last night... I added support for controlling the Mute/Dim buttons on the ...

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 6i6 and 18i8 2nd Gen mixer driver

Here's a little update: I finally managed to get a prepackaged 5.1.9 kernel running. When loading the compiled snd_usb_audio module, dmesg says: [ 48.966843] snd_usb_audio: version magic '5.1.0-rc1+ SMP preempt mod_unload ' should be '5.1.9-050109-generic SMP mod_unload ' [ 48.967895] snd_usb_audio...
