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

So I tried more command prompts from terminal. Is it something you just have to explore around with? I don't want to break anything, but here is what happened when I tried to do the command with the new information for this code: $ su # aptitude update && aptitude install build-essential # exit Here...

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

[...] Try it with sudo apt get. 'get' not a command. Try 'sudo apt get install'....'E: Unable to locate package update'. What am I doing wrong? Understandable mistake. You were almost there! The command is "apt-get" (it's one word with a with a dash in it) instead of "apt get". I still make this mi...

I verified that t...

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

Thanks for your willingness to help out. I'm not sure where my AVlinux live boot thumb drive is, but here are some of the commands you listed. Hopefully they help in the meantime. Again, thank you! I will try my best! Here is the lsmod command: Module Size Used by snd_seq_dummy 16384 0 snd_hrtimer 1...

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

Okay, I must be a special kind of dumb. Nothing is working. Lol...I can't even do basic linux commands. So, I fired up Cadence/Jack, start up Ardour. So if the 'audio engine' is ALSA, It is stopped. When I try to start, it 'fails to start audio engine'. Okay. So then I switch to Jack as the audio en...

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

Okay! So I have all the audio packages installed, and I did the above (it actually worked by pasting the whole thing, except at the end I had to use a different command to install?)...anyways, I started up Cadence and looked and it doesn't really give me a whole lot of options. For 'Device/Interface...

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

You might try one last time to get that E-mu 0404 pci sound card to play nicely or, until you have a better audio device, use an on-board sound card to record some audio with Adacity for practice. I found this post in a Linux Mint forum in which somebody wrote how he got his Emu card working (Mint ...

I didn't get a chance to tear into it on Monday, the work week has been a little crazy and have some other irons in the fire (like children... :D ) but I'm off on Friday so if I don't get the chance tonight/tomorrow, I'll definitely be able to grab a coffee, sit down for a chunk of time, and have at...

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

https://wiki.debian.org/snd-emu10k1 You'll likely need the above kernel module, as well as the firmware mentioned earlier in the discussion. This could get your basic i/o working at 44100 or 48000. The convertors on the card are high quality. If not, set up a cheap recycled win7 rompler box for stu...

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

When I did a seach for 'jack' and 'ALSA' after I added the repos, I actually didn't see anything super specific that looked like the jack audio engine utility. If you've been using AV Linux then I think you're referring to QJackctl, which is the GUI for JACK that comes with AV. In the KX repos ther...

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

@Red Leader Do you still have the M audio 2496? That would work using the s/pdif as an input and the analogue output. A PCI card is preferable to USB. Unfortunately I do not, but I think those cards can be found super cheap, so if the E-mu is a dead-end, that may be my next route. I agree, I like t...
