@furanku :

Did you disable USB_autosuspend? If you're trying to use low latency settings with ALSA, that can be important for USB audio devices. I had to do that for my 2i2 otherwise I had the same issue as you. In Pulse it worked ok for a while but in ALSA, it started having problems immediately.

You can use TLP to set this. There's also TLPUI, a GUI frontend for it.

Thanks James!

I had same success. I disabled USB autosuspend, at nothing changed at first. Then I played a bit with in alsamixer and suddenly I had sound, as all my neighbours within one mile range will confirm: My test file played at full volume and the hardware volume knobs did not work ... and it was 2:00 in the morning :lol:

I'll report back when I have found out more ...
