Record Audio with Focusrite Scarlett 2i2

Thu Jul 05, 2018 9:53 pm

Since this thread has people with expertise on both the Focusrite Scarlett series and on ecasound I am hope to get help on following. I have an Ubuntu 16.04 HTPC (obviously not a Raspberry Pi). I have a turntable with a built in phono preamp (line level output). I wish to play my records (I don't want to RIP them) using the HTPC. I can do this via the motherboard line in with the ecasound command -

ecasound -f:s16_le,2,44100 -i:alsa,plughw:2,0 -o:alsa,hw:2,1

and it works fine. However, I wish to use an ADC of better quality than the one on my motherboard. From the reviews I read it seemed that the Forcusrite Scarlett Solo would do the job and was compatible with linux. I set the guitar input jack on the solo to line, connected it the the turntable using a dual rca female to 1/4 inch stereo male plug adaptor and used the ecasound command -

ecasound -f:s16_le,2,44100 -i:alsa,plughw:1,0 -o:alsa,hw:2,1

Everything works except that only the right channel is playing. Note that with the solo headphone monitor jack I can hear both channels. Can anyone please tell me what I am doing wrong.

The original thread was Pi related (viewtopic.php?f=28&p=1337458#p1337458),
however this isn't, so moving to off-topic.
