newbie has silent audio disc

The best app I think on 64Studio 1.0 for playing an audio CD is Sound Juicer, but I get silence. I've tried Alt+F1 | Desktop | Preferences | Multimedia Systems Selector but with even with the test bar running back and forth I still get silence. With Linux Mint (dual-booted on same hardware) I get the 'oooo' tone when I've successfully set it up. I tried this Multimedia Systems Selector tool with JACK off and on. The only noise I have been successful so far with is ZynAddSubFX through JACK, and Rosegarden playing through ZynAddSubFX through JACK. Soundcard? M-Audio 2496. Yes, it did take me three weeks to get a sound out of Cubase back in 2002. Why do you ask?

Quentin, please point me in the right direction for this (again) Today I was lucky and JACK declared the M2496 to be on hw0. And I could play a .wav file in Audigy with JACK turned off. Hurray! But - for Q13 fix - how do I find what alsa calls the M-Audio 2496 card? Looks like snd-ice1712 from the website. And what about the mobo Intel 82801BA-ICH2, which I am unlikely to ever use? Then I'll stumble through FAQ13 for users, scattering backup files as we go.

Try the snd-ice1712 and see

Try the snd-ice1712 and see what happens. You dont have to declare the card you don't use. As a matter of fact, disable that sound device in the BIOS. It's for the best.

Ooh, didn't think of that

Disable sound card in BIOS? It's for the best? [BOTH] You must never be distressed Yes, it's all for the.... All your wrongs will be redressed Yes, it's all for the.... Someone's got to be oppressed! [CHORUS] Yes, it's all for the best!!! ... well let's give it a go then.

Any joy?

Though it looks like you could extract joy out of most everything if I look at the lyrics! Let us know... Cheers

Quentin, I crawled around my BIOS for at least three minutes and couldn't see where to disable the on-board sound. Annnyway, I added these magic lines at the bottom of /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base alias snd-card-0 snd-ice1712 options snd-ice1712 index=0 (btw would like to edit as root in vim or something but haven't worked out how to do this so it's user: copy/paste to keep backup/paste again/modify file, then root: cp modded file over alsa-base in /modprobe.d folder but leave this problem alone for now) ... reboot ... Check, get excited when JACK reveals that my M-Audio 2496 is now on hw0. Stop JACK and open Living Colour's "Glamour Boys" in Audacity, it PLAYS 8^D, would dance around living room but stop myself 'cos wife's revising accounting exam stuff. Thanks Quentin! Everyone else - FAQ 13 rocks.

Sound issues

It looks like you might have an on board sound card interfering with your setup. To make apps like sound-juicer work (as it is not yet jack aware) is to make sure your M-Audio is card 0, and that jack is not running. If this is already the case, it seems that you have some kind of volume controller (try the speaker icon right bottom) turned right down. This is why I like to use jack enabled apps for all my work. Let us know Cheers

rhythmbox

In V2 i'm using rhythmbox which is nicely integrated with juicer and gnome. Free has kindly shipped a jack-aware version of gstreamer which is very nice too. No probs, no overruns, works very nicely, catalogues my CD's, allows me to play them through Ardour or Jamin or other processors if I choose. Only slight niggle is that it drops and re-establishes the jack session between tracks.

Volume or hw2

Quentin, Thanks for your patience. I'll look into the volume control. Also JACK sometimes patches the soundcard to hw0 or hw2, last night it was on hw2 so this might have added to the problems. "1807 - end of slave trade; 2007 - end of unfair trade"

End in sight!

Looks like I might be right about the on board sound card. Check out the user FAQ no 13 (ominous isn't it?) You have to tell your hardware to always keep the m-audio as hw0 to play audio via non-jacked apps. I can almost see the light at the end of the tunnel! Cheers
