Re: Creating an asound.conf file

This is a Linux thing, and if anyone has different ideas please jump in ... Config files in /etc/ are system wide. The idea with this is that all users have these configs. It dates from a time when a multi-user setup was common. For your user, I think it's better to edit configs in your home folder...

Re: Creating an asound.conf file

My understanding is that .asoundrc only applies when using what I'll call 'bare ALSA' which isn't common these days. I 100% agree that ALSA reads /etc/asound.conf and ~/.asoundrc. I read the script that shows when it does that, very early on at startup (with priority of /etc/asound.conf but I'm not...

Re: Creating an asound.conf file

I suspect these settings are for surround profiles only. For stereo they don't make sense. It's so difficult to find good info on this that I don't want to say I'm 100% confident of anything. However, it makes total sense that there is a setting for low-frequency cutoff and high-frequency cutoff, a...

Re: my USB4 external SSD experiences

In all the excitement, I forgot about write speeds. In synthetic benchmarks, I get about 400 MB/s. Real life transfers (think huge backups) get consistent 700 MB/s. Thank you!! The reads are mind-bogglingly fast but I was particularly interested in write speeds. With numbers like 20Gb/s, 12,000mb/s...

Re: Hi from Europe

Let me tell you about the USB4 port and the OCuLink port and the external Radeon RX 7600M XT then, that should arrive soon-ish... I'd love to see a benchmark on the USB4 read/write speeds. My 3.1 Gen 1's write under 10mb/s, not much better than USB 2.0. I don't know if all 3.1 Gen 1 are so slow wri...

Creating an asound.conf file

There's a bunch of config files in folders /usr/share/alsa /etc/alsa/conf.d /usr/share/pipewire (this folder must be copied to /etc if it's not there already for best use of pipewire according to documentation), so also /etc/pipewire after you copy it there. And /usr/share/wireplumber. (you do not c...

Re: Hi

I'm hoping to upgrade my home recording setup soon (Scarlet 2i2), so hoping for some good advice. :D Best advice is send that Scarlett 2i2 to your pal Trawg on the Linux Musicians forum when you updrade! :P I could put it to good use. Seriously though, does the Scarlett 2i2 have the same preamps as...

Re: Simple OBS recording startup

I saw your post, even though it's a few months old I thought this was a good place to put my quick and dirty OBS setup video. I answer your question at the beginning. https://odysee.com/@trawg:3/OBS-settings:0 Also, there is an "obs background removal" plugin you can get. You don't even n...

Re: pulseaudio to Pipewire - Ubuntu Studio 22.04

I stumbled across this myself a bit ago. From pipewire documentation. They suggest removing pulseaudio and installing pipewire-pulse and a few other tips on setting up pipewire. https://disk.yandex.com/d/aYIp78uNyD83Tw

Re: pulseaudio to Pipewire - Ubuntu Studio 22.04

I hope it's okay to dig up this 6 month old thread. Since you mentioned you had trouble regarding video after installing pipewire, I wanted to point out that in /etc/pipewire/pipewire.conf there is settings for default.video.width default.video.height default.video.rate.num It defaults to 640x480 @ ...

Re: Hi! I'm Trawg

Convert an audio file to both 16 and 24 bit then play both them through your Audiobox. I think you're getting to the root of it now. If I make a 24-bit recording it doesn't have to be converted to be 24-bit, it already is. And if my system uses a so-so rate_converter like "samplerate" the...

Re: Hi! I'm Trawg

Concerning 16-bit vs 24-bit your explanations makes sense. I probably was other differences between the devices. I love my AudioEngine 2+ speakers, but driving them with the USB input is very blah. Like, it's nice they added that as a convenience but the rca inputs are the way to go. Also the explan...

Re: Hi! I'm Trawg

PCM format. Hmmmm. I wouldn't worry about that too much either in the beginning. AFAIK it's digital audio like on a CD. Remember that a CD is 44.1 kHZ (sample rate) and 16 bit (per sample). That should be good enough for everybody. Some applications and/or hardware like the rounded number of 48 kHz...
