View Full Version : [ubuntu] audio interface won't work on ubuntu 11.10

March 1st, 2012, 04:59 PM
about a year ago i bought an "alesis io 2 express" and it worked fine with ardour and jack. Now there are several problems. First of all ardour often says "Could not start Jack" and therefore won't start. Sometimes it starts, but freezes when i press the play button and there's a beeptone (on the output of the interface) that stays until i disconnect the interface.
When i test the output by using the system preferences there's a randon noise, where usually should be a voice.
When the interface isn't plugged in, jack and ardour are working fine using on board sound.
Under windows the interface works as it should.
I have no clue what i changed, could it have something to do with the upgrade from 11.04 to 11.10?
Thanks for helping.
