Trouble with WineASIO and Jack

Post by Reap404 »

I'm new to Linux and am using a Rocksmith Realtone Cable with Jack 2 and WineASIO. So far the programs register the strumming of my strings, but I have no idea how to get the programs to play them back to me.

I am currently using Ubuntu 22.04 LTS

I've tried using Jack2's QjackCtl with WineASIO, and Reaper version 6.59. I've also tried configuring Qjackctl to use ALSA instead, but I get similar results.

Once again, they all register the strumming of my guitar when I use the ASIO setting, but I also want hear it played back to me with as little latency as possible.

Haven't tried Audacity yet for Linux. The Windows version worked quite well, though.

UPDATE: Jack knows I'm playing, but when I tried to play my guitar back via Jack, I hear silence. Not just when I play, but while I playback anything I recorded via Jack. I then switched to ALSA in Reaper to play it back and I heard every note perfectly. I really wanna get this ASIO to work properly.

I.e. Audio Input works just fine with Jack. Output doesn't work, though.

UPDATE 2:

I think it would help if I posted the log file here.

With native linux programs you don't need WineASIO. And definitely, for Reaper, you should use native version.

I just switched to the native version of Reaper for Linux. What's the best way to reduce latency when using the RealTone cable?

EDIT: I switched Jack2 to use ALSA instead earlier as well. The result is located in my previous post.

The Realtone cable you are referring to appears to be made for a game called "Realtone". According to the little info I could find on the cable (link Amazon) there may be more than one brand making such a cable.

To make a long story short: it might be the cable (I think there's some sort of circuitry/chip converting audio to usb). If not, somebody here might help you with settings for Jack and/or Alsa to reduce latency in general.

BTW Did you know that Alsa is the audio driver for Linux and Jack is but a "layer" upon Alsa to function like a Swiss army knife for Linux's audio applications? You can also choose in Reaper to not use Jack but Alsa directly. Maybe that helps a bit... But I ain't no expert on latency though.
