    Thanks. I'll try that. Could you tell me the Model number of the USB card you bought?

    I appreciate your helping with this problem!

    Re: Rezound Playback

    It was a bit of a long shot, but I had the idea of running the Windows release of Audacity using WINE.

    To my amazement, it worked first time!

    Best,
    Tim

    Re: Rezound Playback

    Two things with rezound (though I guess audacity under wine is working, I don't really consider that a solution IMHO); first it can run without jack (through alsa, or even oss) - have you tried that? Second, in jack's setup did you turn on the realtime feature (top-left box on the qjackctl settings panel)? Rezound has always been solid as a rock for me. From your outputs I'd say your issues are the excessive xruns that are causing the rezound playback issues. Your inbuilt card should be able to handle a low latency setup, but you need to turn on jack's realtime abilities.
    What makes a great open source contributor is not primarily the brilliance of their ideas or importance of their bug, but rather their willingness to see it through to success.

    Re: Rezound Playback

    Hi,

    Rezound crashes (closes down) as soon as I enter the first window (output channel).

    I tried Realtime in Jack and had the same result.

    True, using Audacity under WINE is a "hack", but it works,and I needed something urgently for work.

    Cheers,
    Tim

    can you run rezound from a terminal and post the output messages after it crashes

    Sorry for the wait! Here's the soundcard I got for my laptop. I can't promise that it works in Hardy, but it sure does work in Gutsy. I've got it to output to Jack, Amarok and Kaffeine. Haven't tried anything else.

    Without JACK:

    Code:
    haelen@dell:~$ rezound
    using path '/usr/share/rezound' for share data directory
    Error occurred while initializing audio output method 'oss' -- virtual void COSSSoundPlayer::initialize() -- error opening OSS device '/dev/dsp -- Device or resource busy
    Error occurred while initializing audio output method 'jack' -- virtual void CJACKSoundPlayer::initialize() -- error connecting to jack server -- jackd not running?
    If rezound dies unexpectedly while seeking with the keyboard, auto-repeat may be disabled.. if this happens run 'rezound --fix-auto-repeat'
    Running JACK gives xruns (I mean without loading Rezound too)

    Re: Rezound Playback

    Hmm strange, it looks like it didn't attempt to connect to ALSA first as it should have. There are two possible reasons for this:
    -ALSA is perma-tied to another application. Often firefox does this on some systems - particularly flash apps. Try closing all sound applications running (or even do a reboot if the same error comes up).
    -The configure file /home/username/.rezound/registry.dat doesn't have ALSA listed as an option. Open a text editor and edit "alsa" (with quotes) into the front of the list in the top two settings.

    This is what I have there already:


    AudioInputMethods={"oss","alsa","jack","portaudio" };
    AudioOutputMethods={"oss","alsa","jack","portaudio "};


    Closed down all apps apart from Rezound and it still crashes.
