Re: Voice V1 is supported with Raspberry pi 3B+?

I don't recall which RPi I am using with my V1 Voice Kit, however, with the latest software the microphone level is very low, although my audio output was fine. There have been a couple of solutions involving installing Pulse Audio, which I think are mentioned in earlier posts. Although if you can't...

Re: New AIY *drastically* reduces recording volume [evidence]

Workaround: I posted a workaround to this problem in a replay to the issue 356: https://github.com/google/aiyprojects-r ... issues/356

It's a bit involved, and it does seem to work.

Re: Microphone stopped working after update

Using the 2018-04-13 img file, I had the problem with the record level being too low. I applied the solution described in issue #313 as above. After installing a bunch of pulseaudio files, I was able to set the record level to a useful level. See my comment in issue #356 https://github.com/google/ai...

Re: Bricked my RPi running rpi-update

I think the problem is caused because the rpi-update script doesn't include a sync command at its end. rpi-update does a lot of writing to the flash card, and it uses standard linux file i/o. This means the writes are buffered and finished whenever the kernel gets around to it, or when a sync comman...

Re: No sound from on-board card

The missing 1.5 seconds of sound was fixed in a kernel update, I believe. If you are still with one of the Raspbian hosted downloads, use rpi-update to get new kernel and modules and video core firmware. I think this is fixed in the 'official' RPF Raspian distribution, but I should double check.

Re: SEVERE bug in sound driver

I believe the problem is caused by the initial volume value set by snd_bcm2835_new_pcm(...) in bcm2835-pcm.c (at the end). The value is 100, out of a range from -10320 to 400. That's about 97%, so it's no wonder it's loud. A value of -5000 would be safer, but maybe too soft for people to notice. I'l...

Your biggest problem is that the Pi doesn't have enough power to drive speakers through the 3.5mm jack. You will need an amplifier for each channel to drive speakers.
