Re: Allen&Heath Qu-16 crunchy audio

FYI all, I submitted the Qu-16 and MODX patches above and they are now in the Linux kernel since 5.10-rc3, 5.9.7, 5.4.76, and 4.19.156.

Re: Allen&Heath Qu-16 crunchy audio

Hi Geoffrey and bluebell, It works! I stressed my system for several hours and the problem did not occur. Without the patch there was this crackling after a few minutes by simply listening to an audio stream. I was able to record all 10 analog channels for over 20 minutes without any problems. No c...

Re: Allen&Heath Qu-16 crunchy audio

Hi, I have a similar problem with my built in class compliant audio interface (Yamaha MODX Keyboard 10out/4in/44100): after a few minutes the audio gets distorted, the problem vanishes sometimes after a few minutes. I tried different cables, USB ports and a lot of configuration options. There are n...

Allen&Heath Qu-16 crunchy audio

Hi all, I've got an Allen&Heath Qu-16 mixer which has a 24x22 USB audio interface, but audio playback from Linux was intermittently crunchy (every few minutes, the audio would slowly get distorted then slowly go back to normal). It sounded like a similar problem to that discussed here: https://l...

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...
