    Re: Tascam US122 on x64 / 64 bit

    I've got Ubuntu Studio 10.04 wiht ASLA 1.0.21 which is much newer software load than all the work-arounds I see on getting the TASCAN US 122 working.

    uname -a
    Linux ubuntustudio 2.6.32-25-preempt #44-Ubuntu SMP PREEMPT Fri Sep 17 22:21:55 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    My new TASCAM US-122mkII doesn't work either... I just purchased TASCAM US-122mkII because I found several folks that got them to work and it's much cheaper than the M Audio products. see these links...

    TASCAM US-122L (Thought that might work, but looks old) http://wiki.briata.org/doku.php?id=t...2l_under_linux

    This link states that loading usx2yloader will make it work.
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1360736

    When I type "usx2yloader" Synaptic Packager Manager I two software packages:
    alsa-firmware-loaders
    alsa-firmware

    I will try installing both packages nd post my results.

    Also check out the info about TASCAM at the bottom of the page of the link.

    Re: Tascam US122 on x64 / 64 bit

    Firstly I started to go through the following guide: -

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/TASCAM_US-122

    There was a warning after doing setp 1: -

    # sudo apt-get install fxload alsa-base alsa-firmware-loaders alsa-tools alsa-tools-gui alsa-utils alsamixergui alien

    I continued anyway.
    The issue with this guide appears to be that it doesn’t inform you about the initial packages you need to download. More about that later.

    The US122 should be plugged in before you do step 5.

    When getting to step 6: -

    # sudo fxload -s /path/to/ld2-ezusb.hex -I /usr/share/alsa/firmware/usx2yloader/us122fw.ihx -D /dev/bus/usb/002/003

    To find out where the ld2-ezusb.hex file was downloaded type: find /home –name ‘ld2-ezusb.hex’ into the terminal, if that’s where your downloads go to.

    After running this line, the system was reporting back that the file was not available to open. At this point I started researching and it seemed I needed more packages.

    I then downloaded the following AMD64 (64 bit for Intel or AMD) packages: -

    http://packages.ubuntu.com/dapper/amd64/fxload/download
    http://packages.ubuntu.com/dapper/am...aders/download

    http://packages.ubuntu.com/dapper/am...mixer/download


    I went through the whole process again but was still getting the same error.
    It was suggested by gordintoronto that I use Synaptic to get any other required packages: -



    Yes, use Synaptic! It's found in System/Administration. Use "Search," not "quick search." When you find what you want, such as "alsamixergui" you can right-click on it, and select "mark for installation." You can select as many programs as you want, then click on "Apply" to actually install them.

    If you have never run Synaptic, the first thing to do is select Settings/Repositories, and select everything except "source code" in the first two tabs. That will get you the partner, restricted and proprietary software. Then you need to "reload".

    While you're in there, get the "restricted extras."



    I did this and all initial errors went. But then the system reported that No ‘USX2Y-compatible cards found’ after doing step 7. After the alternate line the device still didn’t start (it prob would have helped to restart the system, but I was hibernating as didn’t want to lost any of the window / terminal / web page stuff I had open) I was about to give up.

    The last thing I was gonna try was the kind suggestion from webusr1 via a posted link: -


    Wbm

    I have the Tascam US-122 and could not get it to work for both in and out in Ubuntu. I could only record in (showed up as an input device).
    In Ubuntu STudio it does work for both in and out.
    In both cases I installed from Synaptic usx2yloader (2 different packages)
    http://usb-midi-fw.sourceforge.net/
    Try in synaptic a search for Tascam and see if yours shows up.
    I'd just install those two usx2yloader, plug in, reboot and see what happens.



    ………………… but I just pluged in the Tascam last night (don’t think I rebooted) and the damn thing worked, ha.

    Anyways – thanks guys!

    Re: Tascam US122 on x64 / 64 bit

    I successfully loaded packages: alsa-firmware-loaders and alsa-firmware using Synaptic Packager Manager. However, after the install I was unable to find the file 55-tascam.rules. I did some more research and I can now see that I have to create this file so I can load it with the loader software. I believe this activity is called creating rules. I found an example of this procedure using Fedora here: http://www.astro.caltech.edu/~mcs/tascam_us122/ Scroll down to the bottom of the page and see section Configuring udev to automatically load the firmware. I was under the impression that once the alsa-firmware-loaders and alsa-firmware was installed, the Tascam US-122 would work, but now I understand that the firmware has to be loaded to make it work. ALSO, I have discovered that I purchased the TASCAM US-122mkII which is different from the TASCAM US-122 and TASCM US-122L. So, my new US-122mkII may not work at all since all info on the net is for mode US-122 and US-122L... Ventai what model US-122 do you have?

    Hello,

    Well, I guess it must be the original US122, as I understand the MkII doesn't work, as far as I know.

    Serial# 0143776

    Not sure how else I can check. I think it may be the old one, I bought it 2nd hand and the guy said he'd had it a while . .

    Re: Tascam US122 on x64 / 64 bit

    I've got the new one (us-122 mkII), but I'm still gonna work on it this weekend. I found the usbsnoop software on sourceforge that allows logging of the USB data, so I may load windoze XP with the tascam drivers and snoop the USB port and post the usb data log on web. The author on this web page: http://www.pps.jussieu.fr/~smimram/tascam/ displays his output from usbsnoop for his us122. I will ask there and start there with my output. Hopefully I'll get lucky and make it work in Ubuntu Studio...

    Thanks!
