Re: Ultralite AVB

Mouse also stuck, Power off was...

Re: Ultralite AVB

My bad, i added the proper line in the clock.c file and then forgot about it. I'd say linux is to blame here because the descriptor for the isoc IN endpoint has the implicit feedback bit set and that's ignored by the driver. If Linux is to blame. We maybe should not complain to Motu at all. Will th...

Re: Ultralite AVB

Sorry, I have not enough knowledge to give you a template. My suggestion was based on reading all discussions pointing to Motu being know for bad usb implementations. I do not know if that is true but you could at least go to the Motu site and register your device if not already done and ask if the ...

Re: Ultralite AVB

File support tickets that address the problem with USB-timing that affects all platforms and do not focus on linux-compability or the ticket will be silently ignored. I have filed tickets and they have replied that they will look into the issue but they never deliver. If more people engage, they mig...

Re: Ultralite AVB

Dear forum... I bought my Ultralite AVB in 2019, already equipped, by chance, with 1.3.2+520 firmware, without knowing. So I simply tried that in the shop and worked very well since the beginning. Then I went into the nightmare of firmware upgrade until I found this forum and found that the "good v...

Re: Firewire audio devices

Thanks GMac for you input.. I understand that it might be the end of the road but as long as it is possible to run my devices even if i have to build my own kernel (i used to run Gentoo at one time so it will probably work fine) I will be a happy camper. My problem is that I have One mixer, and at l...

Re: CollaB3 vintage organ

I wonder what this can do that setBfree doesn't already do ? I have been using setBfree for a long time and at one time after a concert an organ player (that uses a Nord C2D that is considered a good B3 replica) came up to me to ask what I was using for my B3 sound since he thought it sounded much b...

Minimizing X-Runs (what did the trick for me)

Hi ! I installed a new laptop for live gigs and practicing at home a few months ago. The laptop is a Lenovo T540p with an Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4700MQ CPU @ 2.40GHz 8 Gig ram and SSD connected to a Motu Ultralite AVB that did work fairly well on my very old Fujitu-Siemens H710 From the beginning I di...

Firewire audio devices

I have been using Linux exclusively for all my work and audio production and live performances for many years now and it was a rocky road at the beginning. Struggling with firewire and the right controllers to get things stable as well as rt-priorities was a challenge but after some time things star...

Re: Ubuntu studio vs Kubuntu (+kxstudio repos). Advantages and disadvantages?

Re: Ultralite AVB

Sorry to hear that. If I remember correctly someone else did get Motu to exchange their unit to an old version or take it back so maybe that's an option. If the new model is completely unusable in Linux we should spread the word to inform everyone. Out of curiosity, what buttons did you press to ent...

Re: Ultralite AVB

Regarding the stuck device.. Could it be that you have the new version of the Ultralite AVB that has the better AD chips ? ESS Sabre32 They probably changed the internals so the beta firmware doesn't work on the new model ? Motu support is excellent IMHO so you should be able to get it running again...

Re: Ultralite AVB

There is also a linux utility called latencytop that can help finding whats causing problems.. Okey, little update : the beta 1.3.4.558 works really good for me, just have to make the sample rate and buffer size changes from the motu web-app, latency is around 8 ms and had no stability issues, glitc...
