    Re: HOWTO: Tascam US-122 in Fiesty

    Thanks already for this great thread. I would have NEVER figured this out on my own. Still have a problem though. To get Ardour to accept the US-122 as input I installed qjackctl because whatever JACK component(s) come with Ardour2 weren't getting it done. I was able to figure out how to patch the connections so that I can record and playback however once I'm done and shutdown JACK Controller I lose system sounds. I can still play media but I can't hear my email notification sounds from Thunderbird or the other system sounds for various events. I'm a spoiled WinXP user so I want all that and don't want to compromise. I see that the system sounds appear to run on ESD which I'm guessing is being usurped by ALSA. Anyone know how to have EVERYTHING and not reconfigure when going between Ardour and normal use? Maybe JACK controller can be used to route everything to ALSA?

    It was a VERY frustrating weekend trying to get this sorted out with little knowledge of how these sound components work together. At one point I had NO sound whatsoever! It probably doesn't help that my sound device is apparently ancient. This is an off-lease Dell that I got dirt cheap. Eternal gratitude to anyone who can make all sounds, input/output 'just work'....

    UUGGH! Also just discovered that the volume control on the toolbar no longer controls the volume. This is maddening.

    Same here. Followed Steps 1-6 and Gutsy, Tascam US-122 and Ardour are working like a charme. Thanks alot for the how-to!

    So I followed all of the steps (on a fresh Feisty install) and the US122 works fine, but JACK is now the issue. Here's the error

    ALSA: poll time out, polled for 34892754 usecs
    DRIVER NT: could not run driver cycle
    jack main caught signal 12
    no message buffer overruns
    zombified - calling shutdown handle

    It usually takes a couple of minutes, but JACK crashes hard, and stops.

    Any ideas as to why?

    That's where I'm at too. I've noticed however that if Ardour is already running JACK doesn't lock up my machine. If I try to run JACK Controller without Ardour it locks up my machine hard. Cold reboot the only recourse.

    does anyone know how to get the us-428 to work with 64bit?

    Re: HOWTO: Tascam US-122 in Fiesty

    i am at my wits end. really
    i tried every how-to on the subject but nothing gives. No green light for me (sob & cry). I caught myself thinking of reinstalling windows for the first time since i changed to ubuntu.

    I got so far that my us 122 shows when i do lsusb and also when i do cat /proc/asound/cards. Every time i connect/reconnect the card gets a different device number though. And no flashing lights.

    I have the feeling something went wrong at the very beginning, for instance i have no 'firmware' folder in my usr/share/alsa but an 'alsa-firmware-1.0.15'. If i remember correctly this was because some download link was broken and i had to get the stuff somewhere else. Also i have been trying so many howtos that are all slightly different that i get the feeling that they all work half but some of the files i am supposed to create already exist with the same name but not necessarily the same content. Maybe.

    i just want to make music but i have been spending the last 2 days doing nothing but learning a lot about linux which is nice too but not nearly as satisfying as my primary goal.

    So anyone who has a thought on this or is willing to help me in general do not hesitate to make yourself heard

    if you help me get my soundcard working you will be liked & memorized for as long as i live.

    Re: HOWTO: Tascam US-122 in Fiesty

    Instead of going back to XP, I would try reinstalling Ubuntu and starting over if you think the problem is too many half-solutions, a phenomenon I'm familiar with as well. Other than that, it's hard to help without much info.

    I'm curious to see if Hardy Heron makes audio connectivity easier. If I'm not mistaken the PulseAudio integration is supposed to make the audio config easier though I don't know what it will do to latency in a recording configuration. PA kinda sounds like JACK to me but I'm no pro at this stuff. JACK allegedly will give you a real-time environment but it simply doesn't play well with Gutsy in my experience and my latency is still running at 26ms (i.e. unacceptable). If Hardy doesn't deliver I'm considering the following as I've read it is what the Ardour dev/qa teams use...

    What is Planet CCRMA at Home?

    Planet CCRMA at Home is a collection of software packages that you can add to a computer running RedHat 9 or Fedora Core 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 to transform it into an audio/video oriented workstation (only on the 32 bit versions, Planet CCRMA has not yet been built on 64 bit versions of the underlying operating system). Here at CCRMA we use a consistent and well defined Linux environment for our daily work in audio and computer music and research. With the Planet CCRMA at Home package collection, you can easily install most of that environment on your own Linux system.

    Re: HOWTO: Tascam US-122 in Fiesty

    Hiya,

    Just a quick update to this, the package/source in step 2 no longer exists.

    It seems the latest version is found at ftp://ftp.alsa-project.org/pub/firmw...1.0.16.tar.bz2

    so you'll need to add this into your code when you go through the tutorial.

    Just using it now with gutsy and my trusty tascam us-122 so I'll let eveyone know if it goes well

    Proud to be Vegan!

    Gonna post this again just in case anyone has had similar trouble.

    ALSA: poll time out, polled for 34892754 usecs
