I have recently bought the ice1712-based DSP2000 C-PORT from Hoontech and
I'm really satisfied with it. I only have a little problem: MIDI!
The card has 1 MIDI in and 2 MIDI out, and the 2 outs are working fine.
However, I can't get anything from MIDI in :-(
Anyone has that card and can confirm this problem or I have to check my
hardware? Maybe ALSA get confused? With aconnect I see 2 devices (0 and 32)
both as inputs and as outputs...
I've tried on the staudio.com forum and they suggest to test the card under
windows, but (ehm..) I don't have it...

I have jack installed and working now. So, now I'm trying to get
AlsaModularSynth compiled and running. Has anyone else accomplished this
in debian stable (woody)?
I installed libqt3-mt (along w/everything it depended upon), fftw-dev,
fftw2, sfftw-dev, sfftw2 and ladspa-sdk to get ladspa.h. I've tried to
edit the top of make_ams to agree with the location of the qt3 libs, bin
and include directories on my system as best as I could figure ... but
I'm not sure I got it right:
it seems to compile OK when I do:
make -f make_ams
though there are a lot of warnings about comparing signed to unsigned
and other warnings that flew by. Are these benign?
Anyway. I end up with an executable ams. When I run ./ams I get this:
./ams: error while loading shared libraries: libjack.so.0: cannot open
shared object file: No such file or directory
I have that in /usr/local/lib/libjack.so.0 so creating this link appears
box1:/usr/lib# ln -s /usr/local/lib/libjack.so.0 libjack.so.0
Is that the correct sollution?
ams: cannot connect to X server
I assume this is because X is running as me (eric) and not as root. I'll
try getting out of X and starting it as root as soon as I finish writing
this message. But, is there a way to let root connect to the X server
that's running as eric?
I was sort of ok (well, not really, but I'm giving it a try) with the
idea of running jackd and its clients as root ... but, running X as
root, too? that makes me more nervous, somehow... maybe I shouldn't be
nervous about that ... I'm not sure.
anyway. i'll give it a shot with a root X session.
I'm thinking that maybe I should patch and recompile the kernel and
recompile jack to enable capabilities so I don't have to run as root.
Do those of you running jackd as root also run your X session as root?
Thanks for listening,
PS If all of this has been covered before and my questions are annoying
you, feel free to send me to the archives. I try to follow jackit-devel,
but most of it seemed to go over my head before I actually started to
try it. So, re-reading the past couple months would probably do me some
good now that I have the real thing in front of me. -edrz
I have a problem starting my alsa drivers... doing:
# /etc/init.d/alsa start
Starting ALSA (version 0.9.6): ens1370-failed failed
I have a soundblaster with ensoniq 1370 chip. What I'm doing wrong?
Audio works fine without alsa... loading es1370 module, but I need
alsa to run ardour.
Thanks a lot,
PD: My computer is running debian/unstable

a shot in the dark here, but i have a similar problem regarding huge
sample libraries on my Mac. despite having hfsplus 1.0.4 installed on
the redhat machine and OS X's samba active, i can access the volume
from redhat, but can't access any files...
anybody overcome these obstacles?

I'm trying to build SpiralSynthModular on a Slackware 9.0 system. Everything seems to go fine until I get:

/usr/local/lib/libpng.so: undefined reference to `inflate'

collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [spiralsynthmodular] Error 1
I downloaded, built, and installed the latest version of libpng (including the obligatory download/build/install of the latest zlib), and ran ldconfig, but I still get this message. I've tried building 0.2.0rc2 instead of 0.2.1, but the result is the same. I also tried not using the --enable-jack option when "./configure"ing, with no effect.
gcc version is 3.2.2
ld version is 22.214.171.124.18 20030121
First the vitals:
The computer system is a 400 MHz K6-2 with 512 MB memory, and a Hercules
Fortissimo II (Cirrus Logic Soundfusion CS4624 processor) sound card.
The OS is Linux-2.4.20 (built up from Slackware-8.0, with kernel patches
and package upgrades). I have the following ALSA components installed:
alsa-driver-0.9.0rc7, alsa-oss-0.9.0rc1, alsa-utils-0.9.0rc7,
The kernel is mostly monolithic, with the following options (abridged to
include only those I know are relevant; if folks want the complete
listing, I can easily provide it):
ALSA is the only component that I have modularized (only because I don't
have the impression it can easily be just built-in, actually), and the
following modules are loaded:
Module Size Used by
snd-mixer-oss 11120 1 (autoclean)
snd-cs46xx 58096 1 (autoclean)
snd-pcm 50752 0 (autoclean) [snd-cs46xx]
snd-timer 9392 0 (autoclean) [snd-pcm]
snd-ac97-codec 26912 0 (autoclean) [snd-cs46xx]
snd-rawmidi 11808 0 (autoclean) [snd-cs46xx]
snd-seq-device 3824 0 (autoclean) [snd-rawmidi]
snd 27280 0 (autoclean) [snd-mixer-oss snd-cs46xx
snd-pcm snd-timer snd-ac97-codec
I've been using Linux with OSS and a Media-Vision Pro-Audio-Studio-16
soundcard for years, and have basically had very little trouble with
that combination. Upgrading to Linux-2.4.x caused the sound output to
be rather noisy, so I recently took advantage of the situation to buy a
new soundcard, and upgrade to using ALSA (which I've been wanting to do
so I can investigate certain rather exciting applications such as Ardour
and the new Rosegarden).
The applications I've been using for years with OSS, (notably Dap,
Mixviews, Aumix, and a few others) all appear to mostly be working fine,
presumably through the ALSA OSS emulation. Aumixer now shows some
lables (PhoneIn and Video) which don't correspond to any inputs I have
on my soundcard, while some others (IGain and Line1) don't appear to
have any use, given the way I'm currently using the card (signal from a
hardware mixer going to the Line input, and signal from the main, front
line output going back to the mixer).
I can play back sound files without any problem. In fact I've also tried
a few new (to me) applications, such as Audacity, ProTux, and (though
I'm having problems with it I won't cover here) Ardour, and they too
play back sounds quite nicely (the sound is "grainy", though, perhaps I
need to investigate the Low-Latency issues more, or increase the size of
some buffer somewhere).
I can send sound to the computer, and listen to that sound coming back
from the computer (adjusting the level with the "line" level in Aumix,
for example), but if I try to record that sound (in any of the
applications I've tried, including all those listed above), with "record
enable" selected in Aumix, I get no audio recorded (silent sound file).
Also, I find it interesting to note that I can record-enable only one
input source at a time (contrary to my old Media-Vision card). I'm
assuming that's a function of the hardware, though and can't be fixed in
Finally, we get to my questions:
- Can someone point me in the right direction(s) to find a solution to
this, so I can record audio (preferably from numerous sources) into
my computer? I'll be perfectly happy with pointers to documentation
(though I expect to get at least some to documentation I've already
read, because I think I've repeatedly gone through all the
documentation I already found myself), and suggestions to upgrade
- I've tried to start Jackd at system boot, with the following command
added to my rc.local file:
/local/bin/jackd -d alsa -d cs46xx -p 512 &
Jackd fails to start at that point (I'm afraid I haven't noted the
exact error message, but I can make a point of doing so next time I
reboot the system), but it does start when run manually from a root
shell. Does anyone have any idea why jackd might not start at boot
time, (perhaps the ALSA modules aren't loaded yet at that time)? If
I understand my boot sequence properly, kernel modules are setup
(via "depmod -a") before rc.local is run, so the modules may not be
loaded, but they should by that point be loadable (they load
automatically by the kernel in regular use).
- Is it possible to build ALSA into the kernel?
- on a slightly unrelated point, my new soundcard has a built-in
synthesizer with at least some features I'd like to explore. Though
I know this won't replace any of my hardware synths (or some of the
software synths I've begun to play with), I'd like to play around
with some of its built-in sounds, and probably use it (at least
until I get something better) as my "preset playback" device,
controlled from an external MIDI controller. Does anyone have
suggestions for how I might go about that? (again, simple pointers
to existing documentation would be more than appreciated).
In case people are wondering about my specific intended application,
I'd like to use a Roland Octapad to trigger percussion sounds from
the soundcard's built-in synth.
Thanks in advance for any pointers people can provide....
