First of all, thanks for the support these boards offer.
and here i am with issues getting my "ICE1712 - M Audio Audiophile 24/96", and the same gratitude for whatever help I can get.
I am running Ubuntu Studio 18.04.1 on a Dell workstation, MT7010 , Intel Core i5-3550 CPU @ 3.30GHz and 8GB DDR3
Me - sort of an intermediate guy, familiar with JackQtl, the Linux command line, MIDI routing and debug, and on my third serious attempt to get a music system to work reliably.
I was doing everything with system audio (except the m-audio card is installed for MIDI to my keyboard), but decided to upgrade to an external amplifier, and am trying to get line out routed from the sound card to the amp.
Step one was on another computer, on which my old PreSonus AudioBox USB (red!) works without much coaxing. It seems to work equally well with JACK, or with the system audio, sending YouTube audio from its line out to my amplifier, for example.
Then I attempted to use the M-audio pci card, and have been substantially frustrated.
In the Playback tab of the system "sound setting" display I have two volume control sliders
1) identified by a speaker icon and the words "system audio"
2) identified by a firefox icon and the words "audioIPCserver : audiostream [i]on[i]
and three choices in a box
a) builtin Audio Analog Stereo
b) ICE1712 - M Audio Audiophile 24/96
c) Jack Sink (Pulse Audio JACK Sink)
The only one that seems to pass audio through the JACK connection kit is "Jack Sink" - detected by Meter Bridge, but there is no way to make a connection to the sound card "line out". All I ever get is the sound from the PC headphone plug in the front of the computer.
Except, as I said, if I connect the usb audio, I immediately get audio from it's line out to the amp - JACK not used.
I ran mudita24, really noting going on there.
I apologize that this may not be very coherent, I really have no idea where to look, and have been trying to report what I have tried and observed.
Is there any hope of getting this to work?
