View Full Version : [ubuntu] Noise instead of music, ALSA

July 31st, 2008, 11:54 AM
Hi, I'm having problems programming with ALSA. At present I'm just trying to capture music from the line-in and output it to a file. When I playback I can only hear noise instead of music. I know I am not just capturing background noise as when I stop and start the music there are breaks in the noise implying that an input is being captured but distorted. Any idea why this might be? Thanks a bunch, would really appreciate any help my useless little soul could be given.. :(

Check if PCM is muted in the mixer.

Hey thanks for the reply, I'd kinda put that on the back burner and now i've been dragged back to dealing with it ;)

Nah, PCM ain't muted :(

Any other ideas?
