Re: Solar Panel Music Player

I bought a 40 watts panel from eBay a couple of years ago When you say 2 or even 4, what size are those of? 40 watt panels are usually about 1ft x 3ft(Assuming you want metric 91cm x 30 cm). I haven't actually installed one, but I have 2 awaiting being installed on my summer cottage this summer tha...

Re: Poor sound quality on RPI

No matter what soundcard I use (internal or either USB device I own) I have a major problem with all audio on the pi. I recently discovered my Logitech wireless keyboard/mouse is the culprit. I also have a plain Logitech wireless mouse that does the same thing. I can start playing an audio file, pul...

And it still doesn't work "reliably" in Duplex. Still crashes after a few minutes of serious JACK throughput.

Re: RPi and real-time, low-latency audio

I'm still stugling to get 2in/2out duplex to work correctly. At least as far as JACK is concerned. I think it may be achieved from a command line interface. The less overhead you give the system, the better chance you have. I got JACK to load my interface with 4in/2outs, only once, and it crashed as...

Re: How to update flash on chromium

Let me just give you the simple answer and tell you, you don't... I don't agree with the crowd that says flash is dead, but I'm forced to agree with the crowd that flash does not, and will not work properly on raspberry pi. YouTube access has been reported to work via XBMC.

Do you mean actual windows VSTs, Linux VSTs, or are you using the term genericly to mean load synth modules?

Good luck if you mean windows VSTs, you've got the uphill battle of your life!

Re: Audio input waveform distortion on some USB sound cards

In my experience with the pi(haven't used audacity which, from your screen, you appear to be using), but I have gotten JACK and Ardour working....Mostly. I was actually able to capture 4 ins of audio from my lexicon Omega. I just hooked up 2 mp3 players and played random songs. I also did a full min...

Re: RPi and real-time, low-latency audio

Even though I'm working on 3 different distros on the pi right now trying different things out, I would love to try an img of your working setup. I'd like to see if I'm just missing something with the little tweaks.

Just because it's a DIY project, it's still nice to give people starting points!

Re: RPi and real-time, low-latency audio

How did you disable it? By unbinding the driver? Yes. echo -n "1-1.1:1.0" | sudo tee /sys/bus/usb/drivers/smsc95xx/unbind What sample rate are you using? 44100 Yesterday afternoon everything with my pi was almost exactly the way I wanted it to be. Now it's all taken a turn for the worse and I have ...

Re: RPi and real-time, low-latency audio

Thanks for all the source links. I have also now tested both your JACK1 and JACK2 binaries and they both WORK LIKE A CHARM! Also, I figure how to start my Lexicon Omega in full duplex. First off I have to completely disable the ethernet, disabling turbo is not enough(I'm not using a powered hub, did...

Re: RPi and real-time, low-latency audio

I'm planning on setting up a repository. Awesome. Could I have the patched source you used to make the binary? I would also like to experiment under Arch ARM. Still having a heck of a time trying to get the patch to work the jack source i've downloaded. If I could start with your source that I know...

Re: RPi and real-time, low-latency audio

Used the guide last night and got my pi working with my USB Lexicon Omega. Even when I disable the ethernet, I still can't start JACK in full duplex. But I'm very encouraged by the fact that I've already tested capturing 4 analog inputs simultaneously with Ardour 2.8 with no errors and still CPU and...
