Re: Strong hissing atmospherics when capturing sound

Sounds good JowiKrause.

The next time a kernel upgrade comes along, don't be afraid to give the Realtek another try. It may get that card issue free.

Re: Input USB device sound

I'm still trying RogerA. Another silly question or 2, have you checked the Gains and Output knobs on the UM2? Is the 48V switch turned on if the mic requires phantom power?

Re: Mint 19 - No sound

Hi Bliksem32.

Install and run PulseAudio Volume Control (pavucontrol.) On the Output Devices tab, make sure the Port is Line Out.

If that doesn't help, delete the files in /home/YourUserName/.config/pulse then run pulseaudio -k in the terminal. Wait a few seconds then test your sound.

Good luck.

Re: Speaker Volume too low

Hi weaver4. Install and run PulseAudio Volume Control (pavucontrol.) On the Output Devices tab you can set the volume up to 153%. Also, if you run alsamixer in the terminal, you can ensure Master, PCM and Speakers are all maxed. If you use alsamixer after pavucontrol, pavucontrol will go back down t...

Re: Installed 18.3, unsure about updates.

Hi MrEen, Mint 18.3 originally came with the 4.10 kernel series, but has been superceded by kernel series 4.15 From time to time the original kernel series will get a patch, because it's still part of the base system. This patch though will not remove the newer kernel series. It's just something th...

Re: Strong hissing atmospherics when capturing sound

When you installed the low latency kernel, that wouldn't remove the kernel you were using before that. To get to it, if you have a grub screen when you boot up, you select Advanced Options and I think use the arrow key to select the previous (non low latency) kernel. If grub doesn't show when you bo...

Re: Firefox no sound

Hi LinuxIsFun.

Install and run PulseAudio Volume Control (pavucontrol.)

When your 32 bit Firefox is playing something that has sound, look at pavucontrol's Playback tab to see if it shows something trying to play.

Re: Strong hissing atmospherics when capturing sound

The changing between channels is on Rear Mic.

This assumes your mic is plugged into the rear (back) of your computer. If it's plugged into the front, we're doing this all wrong.

Where are you plugging the mic in?

Re: Strong hissing atmospherics when capturing sound

As a test, do you have a regular kernel you could try booting into? I'm afraid sound input is a weak area for me. Maybe I'll spot something if you run the alsa info script. In the terminal, type cd followed by wget http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-info.sh -O alsa-info.sh && bash alsa-info.sh then pa...

Hi Upton. All but one of the default repositories are Ubuntu repos. Only one is Linux Mint. It's very common to have ubuntu in the file name such as: binutils/xenial-updates,xenial-security 2.26.1-1ubuntu1~16.04.8 amd64 [upgradable from: 2.26.1-1ubuntu1~16.04.7] To see everything upgradable in the t...

Re: Strong hissing atmospherics when capturing sound

For the Soundblaster, how is the volume level set on the Input Devices tab of pavucontrol? Is it at or near 100%(0dB)?

Re: Strong hissing atmospherics when capturing sound

Here's another thing. That onboard sound card has mic ports for front and back. From your last image, you're using the back I assume. Try disabling the front mic (left arrow twice from the presently selected Rear Mic in that image) by using the down arrow on that column. Also, raise the Mic Boost to...

Re: Mint 19.1 TV HDMI Audio/video distorted(slow)

Having no sound now probably means sound is trying to play to the wrong device. Install and run PulseAudio Volume Control (pavucontrol.) On the Output Devices tab, you should see Port settings that make sense. While something with sound is playing, go to the Playback tab and if necessary switch the ...

Re: Strong hissing atmospherics when capturing sound

From your first image, go back to Alle (F5) and keep hitting the right arrow key. There are probably more options available off screen. Mic Boost is the tenth column for me on the Playback tab (F3) and the thirteenth under Alle.

Still thinking about the USB card.

Hi row1234, and welcome to the forum. Install and run PulseAudio Volume Control (pavucontrol.)

Re: Default Sound device keeps changing

Hi LostAndDazed. As long as your internal sound card and HDMI sound card are different devices, this should be a piece of cake. The output of running aplay -l in the terminal will answer that question. If there are multiple card numbers, you should be good to try what's next. Install and run PulseAu...

Re: Strong hissing atmospherics when capturing sound

Hi again, JowiKrause. For the hissing issue, you probably have too much mic boost happening. In the terminal, type alsamixer and when it opens, press F6 to select the appropriate device. Now look for a column named Mic Boost. Use the left arrow key to select it, then the down arrow key to lower the ...
