Re: ESI NeOn Audio/Midi interface compatibility issues

ESI knowledgebase usually has answer that devices that are class-compliant or not supported on Linux but no mention of this device ESI say 2 inputs and 2 outputs, with inputs either line-in or mic+hi-z. This sounds similar to their Maya22 This post mentioned solution for getting Maya22 fully functio...

Re: How to test if PulseAudio is correctly autospawning

Any idea why is PulseAudio not autospawning? Which version of Pulseaudio and distribution/repository ? If you have had version update recently, try clearing user configuration folder ~/.config/pulse/ do you have old configuration folder ~/.pulse ? remove it restart pulsaudio with: pulseaudio --kill...

unload a lot of the modules
get rid of udev and timer scheduling
load static ALSA sink when needed
swap ALSA sink for JACK sink when needed

optimised to rest of system and it is a useful tool

Re: How to make Pulse stop treating 8 outputs as 7.1 surround?

I should clarify that I don't use Pulse directly, I only use it through the bridge to Jack in Cadence. Apologies. I assumed from previous posts you might be using Pulseaudio+ALSA for audio playback without JACK None of what I suggested is needed if only using Pulseaudio to JACK bridge I had problem...

Re: How to make Pulse stop treating 8 outputs as 7.1 surround?

Pulseaudio is designed for surround sound and doesn't cope well with multi-channel stereo suggest try going to Pulseaudio Volume Control configuration tab pavucontrol -t 5 change device option to "analog stereo playback" (or "analog stereo duplex" if you need recording input) If ...

Re: How do I get rid of the high-pass filter in Pulseaudio

pulse-daemon.conf and default.pa in ~/.config/pulse/ and /etc/pulse/ are indentical. My guess is that Cadence sets up PA Jack Sink and because my interface has 6 outputs, sets it up as a 5.1 system by default. configuration files in ~/.config/pulse usually have priority over /etc/pulse. Pulseaudio ...

Re: Pulse audio plugins

In theory, any LADSPA plugin that will work in JACK can be loaded as a Pulseaudio module In practice, the command to load LADSPA module requires a list of numbers for the variables needed for DSP settings pactl load-module module-ladspa-sink sink_name=<yourname> master=<sinkname> plugin=<plugin> lab...

Re: Strange bug in Firefox with PulseAudio and Soundcloud

Re: which realtime kernel - antergos

I don't think you need BFQ - that is more for spinning disk HDDs For SSD, deadline is best choice, or else noop Best performance on I/O schedulers and kernels is very dependent on hardware. Newest version is usually better and keeps up with the rolling release but may not work as well as older versi...

Re: How to connect the jack sink with headphones ?

Check application streams in pavucontrol Playback tab
When JACK is started, anything playing to Built-in Analog Stereo Speakers will stop as device is no longer available
Playback stream needs to be manually re-routed to Pulseaudio Jack Sink
