Loved finding this forum.
I've bought a Behringer UMC404 and a Thomann T.Bone "rip-off shure" mic and connecting it up with Jack has been damn frustrating.
After 6 hours of forums/youtube & endless tinkering I've found that the solutions are quite customised to each system and I haven't found anything that works for mine yet.
I really liked the solution of forcing the alsa input into the jack connection list with;
Code: Select all
alsa_(in/out) -d hw:1
So Now is the time to ask for help.
Behringer UMC404 (not the HD)
Ubuntu Studio 16.04 LTS
Jack 0.4.2 (Qtjackcl)
- doing a cat /proc/asound/cards shows me that the AI is seen. WIN.
- The only way that Jack will start is with "default" chosen as the input.
- The AI shows up in Jack-->setup-->paramters--> interface. And in setup-->advanced-->input device. But selecting anything other than default for these throws Dbus errors and jack does not start.
- I've explored the pulseaudio-Jack sink and this seems to be active. <--- I really liked this solution.. Harmony between two monsters, if only it worked.
- Killing pulseaudio and starting Jack with "default", the Pulse-Jack sink then shows up in the Jack connections.
- The AI shows up in the ALSA tab of the Jack connections, however only with MIDI inputs (for some reason).
- Using Ardour I can connect the onboard laptop mic with JAck running to the Ardour track.
So Jack to Ardour seems to work. Ai to Jack input-capture seems to be where the problem lies.
Please advise some diagnostic commands so I can give you some hard data to work with.
