UMC204HD stops working when i start jack2, but headphone works

What other apps and distros do you use to round out your studio?

UMC204HD stops working when i start jack2, but headphone works

Post by palsen123 »

Hi, so i just moved to linux on my desktop and wanted to try out making music on there. I'm using arch with KDE as my DE.

Recently i got a UMC204HD audio interface which i love and it is working perfectly on windows. However when i start up jack2 my audio interface can neither detect inputs nor play outputs in pavucontrol, but it works fine when i don't run jack2. Also while jack2 is running i can still use my headphones speaker and mic without any problems.

This is the log from when i start jack2, no errors occurs

Code: Select all

Tue Oct  6 10:50:40 2020: graph reorder: new port 'system:playback_4'
At the moment i'm completely lost on why it doesn't work.

Edit 1: I tried to start the PulseAudio bridge but it stops right after starting:

That is the expected behavior pretty much, unless you configure PulseAudio to work in tandem with jack. I do not normally do this as I am happy to have all of my audio through jack the (now very rare) times I do audio stuff. Maybe someone else will provide better pointers. For now some documentation that you might find useful:

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/JA ... ection_Kit

This would be especially relevant:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pu ... rough_JACK

Note that those pages are from the Arch wiki. What is your distro?

I enable jackdbus in qjackctl and pulseaudio sorts itself out for me. I run Fedora.
