Configure Hoontech SoundTrack Audio DSP24 Value Sound Card.

Postby metsaehinen » Wed Mar 09, 2011 12:37 pm

Hi,

Could someone post any help to get this sound card work? I mean asoundrc, pulseaudio files etc. I've been fighting with this card many times. With time, pain and tears I usually get it work, but now I'm tired to try find those same solutions as before. I've reinstalled my computer and now biggest problem seems to be pulseaudio (Dummy output with envy24 chipsets). Problem persist with Squeeze and now probably with this my new distro, KXStudio.

$ lspci
05:09.0 Multimedia audio controller: VIA Technologies Inc. ICE1712 [Envy24] PCI Multi-Channel I/O Controller (rev 02)

$ sudo cat /proc/asound/cards
--- no soundcards ---

$ aplay -l
aplay: device_list:223: no soundcards found...

$ uname -r
2.6.32-29-preempt

Any help is welcome.. :)

Tried to add this to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.. problem persists.

Code: Select all

install snd-ice1712 /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd-ice1712 && { /sbin/modprobe -Qb snd-ice1712 ; }
options snd-ice1712 model=dsp24_value

For some reason, it seems that the snd-ice1712 module is not loaded. Double check with lsmod | grep snd or cat /proc/asound/modules. Try to sudo modprobe snd-ice1712 . Check whether the .ko file is present in /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/sound/.... Try to locate snd-ice1712

Pulseaudio problem is another one. You need the driver up and running (i.e, the snd-ice1712 module loaded) before anything else. Linux musicians will normally use jack, not pulseaudio

Cheers, Pablo

damn.. this is really mess. Maybe I should go back to squeeze. Too much problem with dsp24. Squeeze had only "dummy output" problem with pulseaudio. :/

OK, squeeze is up and running. :) Now back to "dummy output" problem..

I put these lines to /etc/pulse/default.pa

Code: Select all

load-module module-alsa-sink sink_name=DSP24_out device=hw:DSP24 format=s32le channels=10 channel_map=left,right,aux0,aux1,aux2,aux3,aux4,au x5,aux6,aux7
load-module module-alsa-source source_name=DSP24_in device=hw:DSP24 format=s32le channels=12 channel_map=left,right,aux0,aux1,aux2,aux3,aux4,au x5,aux6,aux7,aux8,aux9


and these to /etc/asound.conf

Code: Select all

pcm.pulse {
    type pulse
}
ctl.pulse {
    type pulse
}
pcm.!default {
    type pulse
}
ctl.!default {
    type pulse
}

pcm.pulse_monitor {
  type pulse
  device alsa_output.pci-0000_00_1b.0.analog-stereo.monitor
}

ctl.pulse_monitor {
  type pulse
  device alsa_output.pci-0000_00_1b.0.analog-stereo.monitor
}


Not working.. :(

Hi

DId you ever manage to solve this? I recently dug up my old dsp 24 because I lent another soundcard to my son, knowing that the old dsp24 used to work...
I use it on a kxstudio version of ubuntu. Outputs work fine, but I cannot make inputs work.

At least you have outputs, so alsa does see your card.

You need to install the package "alsa-tools-gui" which comes with an app called Envy24control that controls the ice1712 cards. Just type "envy24control" in a terminal.

Check the "Analog volume" tab. Probably, you will have to raise ADC levels.

Cheers, Pablo
