View Full Version : [ubuntu] Podcast setup that works

This works for me:

Dell Inspiron 530 with Ubuntu Linux 7.10 pre-installed - 1 Gb RAM

Behringer Podcast Studio - USB Version (http://www.zzounds.com/item--BEHPODCASTUSB)
High-resolution 2 In / 2 Out USB audio interface with plug-and-play for Windows XP and Mac OS X operating systems Studio-class 5-input 2-bus mixer with premium mic preamp and 2-band "British" EQ Dynamic broadcast-style microphone with 2-stage pop filter High-performance studio headphones with ultra-wide frequency response Table microphone stand, XLR microphone cable and 2 stereo RCA cables

Audacity Sound Editor (http://audacity.sourceforge.net/)

However, it DIDN'T work until I plugged the UCAR200 USB device into the USB port on the BACK of the computer. It did NOT work from the front USB ports or from a USB port replicator.

I am VERY impressed with how well it works (now). Of course, I'm not an audio engineer, either.

I've noticed that many devices (card readers, thumb drives, etc.) do not always work on the front USB ports of Dells. I beleive these are extensions, and may not be powered or under powered. But the back USB ports always work.

i also assembled a lot of pcs for friends of family, and in 100% of all cases the front usb did never work, for what reason ever
