    Edirol UA-25 issue

    hello, i have a Dell xps 15 with ubuntu 12.04 installed. recently, i purchased a edirol ua-25 usb audio interface and even though it is recognized by the computer and seems to work with jack, i can't get any input sound of it in ardour.
    i have searched many forums looking for an answer or a simple way to fresh-install the audio interface, but i am really new to linux so i don't understand the most of the hypothetical solutions.
    i tried configuring just like the ubuntu studio webpage told me, with jack and ardour but still i get no sound- also, in the jack connections it appears not just system and ardour, it shows pulseaudio JACK sink/source too.
    i think i could get input sound before, and i THINK pulseaudo wasn't in the jack connections, but i am just speculating

    please, any guidance would be greatly thanked

    ok, this is the output:

    Code:

    i tried this before, and i see that the device is recognized, so i think it's not a hardware issue, i think is some configuration issue. but then again, i am a total noob on this. sorry, the output is in spanish

    Okay, card is recognized. Try to select it in qjackctl as interface. It should be card 1.

    yes, it is set as an interface. it shows UA-25 as 1 and USB audio as 1,0. it is set to 1.

    Hi, the usb device order as detected by qjackctl, can change
    between boots. Configure qjackctl to not start jackd, in the
    Setup page, Misc tab. You then just open the Input Device >
    setup on the right side of the setup page,
    and choose the device you want, and the start qjackctl.

    Keyboard and guitar players often use different interfaces,
    so it is handy to use this option.

    The Periods/Buffer setting, should be 3 for usb and firewire devices.
    The output of aconnect -i and arecord -l
    should mention the Edirol, and click Input Device > widget
    ( > ) to see and select from the list of sound devices detected.

    Cheers
