Re: behringer xenyx control1 usb

Thanks for sharing. The online description says stereo USB, so I assume it is 2-in, 2-out 16 bit/48 kHz like their Xenyx mixers, but can you confirm the specifcs of its USB capabilities?

Re: RAT

I love the new look of Guitarix. Will the next release include the new GUI? (RAT is an awesome addition, btw, thanks!)

Re: Interface audio usb - disconnecting

Installing a2jmidid will do nothing to correct the issues you are having since the UMC202 has no MIDI capabilities. It may be an issue with Pulseaudio. Like glowrak guy instructed, focus on getting Qjackctl setup properly whereby your device is selected and Pulseaudio is disabled upon Jack startup, ...

Re: microphone trouble

You don't need a specialized distribution or a RT kernel for playing back recorded music. Pretty much any distro will work provided your DAC hardware is compatible with ALSA. There is no benefit in terms of sound quality in using a RT kernel. The purpose of a RT kernel is to reduce latency, which is...

Re: Akai Professional EIE....

The red EIE interface is class compliant, so getting it to work is just a matter of installing and configuring Jack for the USB device. A basic tutorial on how to do this is available here: http://libremusicproduction.com/articles/demystifying-jack-–-beginners-guide-getting-started-jack I would igno...

Re: Akai Professional EIE....

I don't think the device you have is compatible with Linux. The link you provided is an experimental driver, but it states on the site that it is not ready for use. The last commit was over a year ago, so odds are the project has been abandoned. It's a shame Akai didn't use class compliant drivers f...

Re: Behringer Xenyx?

The Behringer Xenyx 1204USB is not a good choice for a computer audio interface in my opinion. It works with Linux, but regardless of platform, it only sends the stereo Main Mix via USB at 16-bit 48 kHz. Maybe this is what you want, but if you are looking to simultaneously record more than two input...

Re: Audio Recording

From what I've read, the Focusrite Scarlett 18i8 or 18i20 is a good choice for multichannel USB on Linux. These devices are reported to work with the ALSA mixer on a kernel 3.19 or newer.

Re: KXStudio & AVLinux

I set up AVLinux 6.0 a couple years ago with two monitors plugged into a NVIDIA card and had no issues. That functionality is pretty much ready to go OOTB. Even installing the proprietary graphics driver was made simple in AVLinux. I recently tested a live disc of KXStudio on the same machine, and t...

Re: Tascam US-1200?

Are you sure the Tascam US-1200 is class compliant? http://tascam.com/product/us-1200/downloads/ There is a driver for Mac OS listed on the manufacturer's download page, which typically means it is not class compliant. Class compliant devices should not require a special driver for Mac OS. Tascam's ...
