Re: Hello from the north of Germany!

greetings from somewhere in germany (looks like there are a lot of german users here..). i was also intrigued by your statements about your standing on hardware and computers, since it's also one of my main interest to make music not "inside" the computer, but find a suitable place for the computer ...

Re: Boss RC-300 loopstation (no audio)

kernel is 4.8.1

i've started monitoring with wireshark, but it might take me some time to be able to read the usb packet communication properly, if someone here is already versed in this, i have one session uploaded here:

Re: Boss RC-300 loopstation (no audio)

I've compiled another kernel with 32 bit sample rate, but it didnt change much. speaker-test does however support all formats if you give it the option: dormir@automne:~$ speaker-test -D hw:CARD=RC300,DEV=0 -F S32_LE -c 2 -r 44100 speaker-test 1.1.0 Playback device is hw:CARD=RC300,DEV=0 ----- (SAME...

Re: Boss RC-300 loopstation (no audio)

Interesting find, this leads to at least some more ideas for debugging the issue. The solution with softvol seems to be for a situation where sound works, but cant be controlled, since I don't even have sound, I'm still at the speaker-test stage... Currently I'm websearching around for this issue: d...

Re: Boss RC-300 loopstation (no audio)

well sure, i tried it with both kernels, but i just said that it didnt throw an i/o error, that does not necessarily mean that it works correctly, i've tried your change of jackd startup settings, but it didnt change much, the Jack: JackSocketServerChannel::Execute : fPollTable i = 1 fd = 10 changed...

Re: Boss RC-300 loopstation (no audio)

okay, this might actually have been a part of the problem, forgive me for not thinking about this sooner, so i can confirm that disabling pulseaudio will stop the "unable to.." messages in dmesg. still it does not lead to any appearance of output/capture controls in alsamixer (i mean, maybe there ar...

Re: Boss RC-300 loopstation (no audio)

okay... i feel like slowly running out of things to test. from your experience with the midiport on the jd-xi i've had the idea that maybe devices with both midi and audio-ports block each other if they arent addressed in a very specific way, so i tried your suggestions with feeding the midi-in and ...

Re: Boss RC-300 loopstation (no audio)

thanks for your writeup drumfix! my approach was going in a similar direction, but it was a lot less thorough, still i must sadly say that it did not change the situation, it still produces the "Unable to change format on ep #8e: already in use" message and does not produce sound and of course jack ...

Re: Boss RC-300 loopstation (no audio)

thanks a lot for your reply! i'm going to have a stab at your suggestions, the last things i tried was "guessing" my own quirks table entry from the lsusb output, but it seems like a fools errand, since all of the interfaces on the rc-300 are just recognized as "Vendor Specific Class" currently. i d...

Re: Boss RC-300 loopstation (no audio)

okay, what i tried now is the following: replaced the quirks-table from my current kernel (~4.8.1) with one from a kernel before the presumed 'breaking change' (somewhere around 3.10-3.12) and build the kernel. but alas, now it does not even recognize the device in alsa... so either this was not wha...

Re: Boss RC-300 loopstation (no audio)

hello there, facing the same issue on a lenovo x200 tablet, running ubuntu studio with 4.8.0-36-lowlatency kernel. so from the other thread i assume i somehow have to re-add a few quirks to the kernel that were removed a while ago? i wrote an email to clemens ladisch, but he hasnt replied yet. greet...
