Seeking advice - making background music

Hi all. I am looking for some advice for a project. I am a music teacher in an elementary school. I've recently been given the green light to play music over the school's PA as the children arrive in the morning. I am able to plug in directly to the speaker system for the school. I have been pluggin...

Re: Wrestling with JACK - JACK is winning

So using dmseg would allow you to identify the malfunctioning components?

Re: Wrestling with JACK - JACK is winning

Yes, but unless you did something other than running those commands, then unplugging/replugging the device is the only variable you changed and therefore the only one that could have influenced the outcome--whether you're satisfied with that result is up to you. (given the circumstances, I would ex...

Re: Wrestling with JACK - JACK is winning

Well, I guess it's magically fixed then. So it's probably a matter of time before it's magically broken again. The weird thing is that the device was always recognized, and Audacity was able to use it, but ALSA wouldn't list it. Thank you for explaining the commands to me. Do you think there might b...

Re: Wrestling with JACK - JACK is winning

I assure you, disconnecting and reconnecting the device did not fix the problem. Before posting here, I tried that a couple dozen times. When you flip a coin, does it always come up heads? I don't see how that is relevant. The first thing I did when I started having trouble was to disconnect and re...

Re: Wrestling with JACK - JACK is winning

clavette@Studley:~$ dmesg [112825.768020] usb 4-2: new full-speed USB device number 3 using uhci_hcd There was some interesting (at least to my untrained eye) output to the first command, but it's so long that my terminal client does not save that much information.

Re: Wrestling with JACK - JACK is winning

the ALSA tab refers to ALSA-midi (as opposed to jack-midi), you should set the midi driver to seq in the qjackctl preferences. This did not help. Here are some screenshots: http://i1036.photobucket.com/albums/a443/crazytbone/f5410059-99ea-4dec-9ce5-3e6e23e87f6f_zps026b752c.jpg http://i1036.photobuc...

Re: usb interface - no playback

Sometimes, you gotta nuke it from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

Re: Wrestling with JACK - JACK is winning

Ok, so now I'm back at my "target machine" and I think I can better describe my issue. I open qjackctl and then click the connections tab. I see a window open that has 3 tabs: audio, midi, alsa. When JACK is running, the following options are under the audio tab: Pulseaudio Jack Sink (whic...

Re: Wrestling with JACK - JACK is winning

For example, in my ubuntu 13.04 the above is not needed. This is very interesting to me. I'm running 13.04 on my laptop, but I'm running Lubuntu on my classroom computer. (I plan to set both up for recording eventually.) Why do you not need to kill pulseaudio in 13.04? Do you also need to edit ~/.p...

Re: Wrestling with JACK - JACK is winning

I guess I would like my system to behave normally until I start JACK. Then it would be in "music making mode". If it is easier (or a better idea) to run jack all the time, then I am all for that choice. My main goal is to educate myself, so I will submit to your expert opinion.

Re: Wrestling with JACK - JACK is winning

Ok, so is there a way to determine if an application uses pulseaudio or Alsa?
Can you change this behavior (make an app use pulseaudio)?

Is there more to getting rid of pulseaudio than "apt-get remove"?
Is there a reason NOT to get rid of pulseaudio?
