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

The E-Mu 0404 does have the same emu10k1 IC as Creative cards. Appears to be used for soundfonts/dsp; MIDI; possibly digital IO. But, there are other ICs used for analog IO - Burr-Brown PCM1820 ADC and AKM AK4395 DAC. Both ICs are capable of 192kHz, but card can only support 96kHz. emu10k1 Creative ...

Re: Help.. Nvidia GPU trumps my soundcard..

nvidia GPU grabbing the default hw:0 slot in ALSA is very common If you can live without an onboard audio device, simple way to get rid of GPU in ALSA is blacklist the snd_hda_intel driver For most Linux versions using systemd, need to create a file in /etc/modprobe.d/ echo -e "blacklist snd_hda_int...

Re: Fedora Music Spin????

Do you mean Fedora Jam? I thought that was marked as out of date years ago

If you want a Linux audio distribution that is still active, check AVLinux or Ubuntu Studio

Re: Cadence session managment (patchbay) in Arch

There isn't really a full equivalent to QjackCtl patchbay Best I can think of is use a KX patchbay GUI (catarina or catia) or Patchage to sort out the connections then use aj-snapshot commands in terminal to save and restore connections this isn't a full GUI solution OP was looking for, but aj-snaps...

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

I just don't want to send signal through crappy preamps since I already have outboard gear. from this, no point to paying for a built-in preamp on an interface when outboard gear is likely much better USB line link cable or simple line-level interface would be enough to add USB connection but if th...

Re: Stop Pulseaudio temporarily

why not just use:

Code: Select all

pacmd suspend true
that was enough to suspend Pulseaudio for starting JACK
used to be something i used in QjackCtl pre-start script,but do not need it now
D-Bus prevents any possible squabble between JACK and Pulseaudio

Re: Most used Linux distribution?

MX Linux is a good Debian distribution, they have a great best persistent Live ISO for USB, but not good for audio

AVLinux on Debian is IMO most powerful audio distribution at this time

Ubuntu Studio is great for Linux newcomers wanting audio tools with easy setup - new release due in April

Re: qjackctl with "JACK Bridges"

Pulseaudio to JACK bridge on Cadence is redundant If Pulseaudio is correctly configured with module-jackdbus-detect, Pulseaudio JACK Sink/Source connections are automatically loaded when JACK starts I have seen a few Cadence users turn on the Pulseaudio bridge option without noticing that connection...

Re: One month and counting without RT kernel on Arch Linux

Manjaro developers pushed v4.20 kernel to all users just before Christmas can't see any difference from v4.19 yet - both are excellent Not had need to use RT kernel for about a year, removed it to reduce clutter last spring and not missed it stock kernel is well capable of managing a lot more than i...

Re: Manjaro?

Manjaro has their own package manager pamac on most desktops, not yet for KDE
and cli version intended to be similar to debian/ubuntu (eg sudo pamac-update)

pacman and many other arch package managers are available too

Re: Any modern browsers with built-in support for JACK2?
