@sysrqer Thanks for the feedback!

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...

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

Not sure if i'm getting it right. I just modified some settings in my KVM Win machine, removed the card and alsa read the changes perfectly (again, inst/line and pads). The only issue i can see is that volumes are not kept between alsa and focusrite control - nor vice versa - but i'm not sure that'...

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

Hi @geoffrey. Checked and line / inst works. Same does pan. And most important the interface saves the settings from alsa-mixer internally (line/inst settings, pan and even volumes which is pretty f&@^()% cool! :D (and also wierd cause i recall reading somewhere on the other thread that it does...

Thanks for the instructions @geoffrey! Since I never got Focusrite Control working in Virtualbox I tried it with qemu / kvm and was able to get a dump: https://pastebin.com/zNaCZab2 As stated in the bin I changed the level of analog in 1 on monitor output 1-2 (which is configured as one stereo outp...

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

I would be willing to buy a 6i6 gen 2 Interface. Is this offer of yours still available? It would take about two weeks for me, to capture the usbmon output. Hi random_username! Thanks for your message, and sorry for the delay in responding. I forgot that I need to subscribe to a thread to be notifi...

Re: Focusrite Scarlett 18i20 2nd Gen mixer driver

@geoffrey Thanks for your hard work! Since I own a 6i6 2nd gen I'd like to get the mixer working too :) What can I do to add support for the 6i6? I have basic understanding of C and C++ but no experience in kernel development. Martin Hi Martin, thanks for your message! Let's move the discussion for...

Re: Focusrite Scarlett 18i20 2nd Gen mixer driver

@geoffrey Ok i finally managed to build your driver in linux-rt on archlinux. (created a patch for this. if anyone is interested i can provide it or upload it to github). Hi ciolansteen, that's great news! I'm not familiar with linux-rt; is your patch something that I can integrate into mine, or is...
