Re: Newbie with questions (2i2, ubuntu, jack)

1) No idea, never had this issue with a 2i2. Maybe a broken interface or USB port

2) Sorry, can't help with Ardour

Re: Gullfoss

Are such plugins interesting? Sure.

Are they needed to make a good mix/master? No.

The market is saturated with EQs and Compressors. So manufacturers have to invent new stuff that promises a perfect sound for any bedroom producer.

Re: how to make a video like this

Something like this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6IiNah8Zjwc It's a script that yPhil made. I modified it a bit if I remember correctly. #!/usr/bin/env bash if [ "$#" -ne 5 ]; then echo "Usage: $0 [audio file path] 'artist name' 'album name' [artwork image file path] [point|line|p2p|cline]" exit...

Re: Super Cheap way of doing this?

Don't return them :mrgreen:

Cheapest way:
- cheap mixer (used)
- use your PC's builtin audio adapter and insert the mixer's output to the line input of your PC

Re: Debugging Xruns

@gauderbock I don't think it's a problem with JACK. The common factor in your and @alex's problem is that you're using a laptop. Have you tried configuring c states with a kernel parameter? I'm using a desktop and I can leave JACK running all day without Xruns. I am using a laptop, too, and it's st...

Re: Scarlett 2i2 could not reconnect to audio/MIDI engine

There is a Solo and a 2i2, but no Solo 2i2.

I had never such issues.

Do you use jack?

Re: Hard (industrial?) electro: Tristate

There is a bit of Jean Michel Jarre in it, but also a bit of Anthony Phillips' "1984" and lots of your own style.

A variation of chords and a nice mix.

I like it.

Re: Do I need any driver for Scarlett 2i2 :: How to improve performance

Try a sample rate of 48000 instead of 44100.

Simply try a buffer size of 96 and 64.

It depends on the application software how much realtime CPU it uses, how big your buffer must be and if it must be a power of 2.

Re: Ubuntu Studio and [Focusrite] - Scarlett 2i2 (USB-2) gen 2

1.) You're lucky. The 2i2 works with Linux without trouble 2.) Install jackd and qjackctl if not already installed 3.) Configure jackd in qjackctl an start it. Samling rate of 48000 and buffer size of 128 is a good start. 4.) Start audacity and select jack/system as input/output 5.) Record your stu...

Re: Audio interfaces - JACK problems

Hi bluebell, sorry to add complication with pulseaudio. I don't think it is the cause of the problem. I checked pulseaudio --check without any output. To reduce sources of errors I just removed pulseaudio-module-jack and pulseaudio. After restarting my system, I still cannot see the audio interface...
