Audio playback speed is wrong

Hi, I've not been visiting here lately due to being busy, but I've just built a new PC and have a strange problem. I went for an AMD A8 6500 CPU on a Gigabyte GA-F2A88X-D3H motherboard with 8GB RAM. I transferred my old M-Audio Delta 66 from the old PC. I'm using the on-board graphics as I don't nee...

Re: Best motherboard/CPU for recording?

I'm looking to build a new PC soon as my current one is about 7 years old and playing up. I've built a few PCs over the years, but haven't kept up with the latest in hardware. My usual policy is to go for something below the cutting edge to get good value for money. Want this one to be reasonably qu...

Re: seeking basic info on making sounds and recording

I was unclear. I don't have pulseaudio installed. :D From screenshots, mudita seems to be the same as envy24control. It's a frontend to alsamixer, so I still have to save with alsactl store? It seems I have sound in, sound out without jack, but I can't record in audacity. There are about 60 "m...

Re: seeking basic info on making sounds and recording

I know there can be some initial frustration with getting this stuff working. I've been there. It took a while to get a grasp on the various concepts and we have been lacking in good guides on getting started. There are a few more now, but you have to find them first. To configure the M-Audio interf...

Re: The Friday Interview

Who's the next victim? ;) There are quite a few suitable candidates right here on the forum and on the Linux audio mailing lists. I'm interested in hearing from a mix of developers and users. Some I'd like to hear from are Julien Claassen (for a blind user's perspective), Dave Phillips and Paul Davi...

Re: German baroque giggin' girl says hello

Welcome Petra. It's always interesting to hear about people using Linux for performance. There must be some potential for things like looping. I'd not heard of http://www.swamiproject.org. I sometimes play around with MIDI. I've used soundfonts via Qsynth+Fluidsynth so far, but not explored too deep...

Re: Hello from Fife, UK

Welcome Jim. Recording levels can be tricky as there are usually several places where they can be set. In this review I see that mic has an internal gain control. Is there a way to control that on Linux? http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/jun06/articles/samsonc01u.htm Some info at http://vxlabs.com/201...

Re: The "Perfect" Interface Wish List

When I was looking for an interface a couple of years ago I looked into the various USB options, but ended up going for a used Delta 66. It's over 10 years old, but was a good price on ebay. I was also able to get the Omni i/o box, which does what you might need a mixer for whilst taking up less spa...

Re: Anyone able to get the Scarlett 6i6 working with PulseAu

Seems there should be a patch in Linux 3.8 (for the 18i6 at least)

Re: Anyone able to get the Scarlett 6i6 working with PulseAu

AFAIK the interface would have to work with ALSA before JACK can see it. From the comments on that post it seems that some tweaks are required for some of the Scarlett range, e.g. disabling the ALSA mixer. See http://sergey.vlasov.me/2012/09/using-focusrite-scarlett-18i6-in-linux.html Perhaps these ...

Re: Any recommended PCIe audio card?

I'm thinking of updating my 6 year old system at some point, but would like to keep using my M-Audio Delta 66. I've heard that some Intel boards have issues with PCI support that may affect audio. Perhaps someone knows which chipsets are better for those looking to upgrade. In my case the upgrade wo...

Re: Linux Mint 15 - WineAsio

This didn't seem to stop me installing some KXStudio apps. I've now got Ardour 3.3 and Cadence (plus other apps). Initially I was getting loads of xruns until I added myself to the audio group and installed a low latency kernel. Cadence warned me about both of those. After that I got zero xruns. I d...

Re: Wiki merge

I've noticed an issue with the migration. It has used section names for some pages. See http://wiki.linuxaudio.org/wiki/hardware_matrix How do we change page names? Is this something that can be scripted? I'm not entirely sure what you mean - do you mean that dokuwiki seems to use the name of the f...
