Re: How parallelised is audio software?

Thanks, I'll look at that. I've been thinking about what the trends in hardware mean for audio software.

How parallelised is audio software?

But this won't help you in a real-world audio setup where dozens of plugins are running at the same time and could use a multicore-cpu very well! That's interesting because the trend in processors is towards more cores rather than higher speeds. For software to benefit from more cores it has to be ...

Re: rate my xruns: tuning assistance?

Although my processor is actually 2.4GHz, so maybe I'm doing pretty well. Yes. That blows my theory out the water. :) From the xruncounter results that have been posted it seemed that the number of circles was a function of clock speed. Does your processor have a turbo mode? I have a 2.6GHz process...

If you're seeing meters move then JACK is working. Is something muted? Open alsamixer and see if something is muted.

Re: E-mu 0404 and getting nowhere...

Well, what is weird is everything worked perfect, out of the box in Ubuntu. That means the motherboard is good. What I can't understand is that lspci shows the card and lsmod shows that the 10k1 module is loaded. I would have thought that means the card is working. If you treat this as a hardware p...

Re: E-mu 0404 and getting nowhere...

Are you sure the Fw will be loaded automatically w/ that package installed? I don't know the exact details, but yes, it should work. @Red Leader OK, so Linux audio is complicated, but it isn't this complicated. :) I was looking through the whole thread and you've had three problems (1) Your Echo Au...

Re: E-mu 0404 and getting nowhere...

@ Linuxmusician01 As far as I can tell you're mistaken. alsa-firmware is a package, and like any other package it could be installed from a repo or built from source. AV Linux comes with alsa-firmware pre-installed. @ Red Leader The fact that lspci showed the Emu card means it isn't completely fried...

Re: ALSA input error; JACK "You have no standard location set

I saw in your other post that you're using a Raspbarry Pi. Does it have an audio interface? I used one a while ago and the audio interface was a separate board or 'hat' I think it was called. What does

Code: Select all

aplay -l

Re: rate my xruns: tuning assistance?

@ZestieBumwhig Glad you got it working. You could post your improved results. Looking at the number of circles you got in your first results I'd estimate you have a 4GHz processor and you should now get around 12000 circles. @AlexTheBassist Do you have a USB interface? If so have you tried a non-pow...

Re: rate my xruns: tuning assistance?

I would think that you're getting Xruns at a low DSP load because your interface prefers a buffer size that is a multiple of (samplerate/1000).

Try a buffer of 96.

Other values that work are : 48, 96, 144, 192 ...

Thanks for clarifying that. 4.19.31-rt18 works on my system. I'll stick with that.

Re: anybody having problems with latest linux-rt and KDE?

@funkmuscle Are you using 5.0.5 RT? On the 3rd of March the maintainer of the AUR package posted this: I've just removed the patch for nvidia that has been used for years. Apparently it's no longer needed, have tested on 2 systems one with the current nvidia driver, and another with nvidia-340xx. Th...

Re: anybody having problems with latest linux-rt and KDE?

@Musicteacher I've got AMD drivers and Capoeira has Nvidia. It could be both graphics drivers.

It could be kernel 5.0+ is causing your thermal problems as someone posted on the Arch forum : https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=245542

Have you tried the stock kernel?
