Re: Realtek soundcard - Bad quality/possible driver issue

After trying that, I have something new worth attempting. In the terminal enter xed admin:///etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf and when the file opens, scroll to the bottom and add this new line: options snd-hda-intel position_fix=3 Then save and close the file, ignore the warnings from the terminal, t...

Re: Realtek soundcard - Bad quality/possible driver issue

(Are you really sure it's not about linux mint not having that realtek driver tho?) Absolutely. The Realtek drivers are part of ALSA (inside the module snd-hda-intel) which has been part of the kernel since 2003. There is some co-operation from Realtek on this front on the kernel development team. ...

Re: Realtek soundcard - Bad quality/possible driver issue

I'm guessing you needed to adjust things in alsamixer/pavucontrol to get it the same. But I was hoping it might "just work" which it hasn't. Maybe the sample rate is causing the issue. Try this: arecord -f dat -r 48000 -D hw:0,0 -d 5 test.wav Then aplay test.wav . Does that sound good? Still a lot ...

Re: Realtek soundcard - Bad quality/possible driver issue

Yes please. There may be something messed up in the configuration for the port. I believe it's worth testing. after plugging it in on the front panel, there were absolute no audio, not even my voice with weird noises, just the noises. ( while if i plug it in on the rear panel, at least i can hear m...

Re: Realtek soundcard - Bad quality/possible driver issue

Just to be sure it's not a port issue, have you tried plugging the mic into the front of the computer? Hopefully the Input Devices tab will automatically change from Hátsó mikrofon to Első mikrofon I'm sure it's not a port issue as the audio quality is good when i'm booted from windows (and i use t...

Re: Realtek soundcard - Bad quality/possible driver issue

The output looks good. I was hoping to see something that I never see, namely Analog Mono Input. From looking around some, it appears it's usually the left channel that carries the sound. So make the settings = 100<>0 in alsamixer, or on the Input Devices tab of pavucontrol lower the right channel ...

Let's get a look at pacmd list-cards so I can see what options are available for each sound card.
Here is the output: https://pastebin.com/nQMFmtLJ

Re: Realtek soundcard - Bad quality/possible driver issue

I have another idea. Sometimes the mic is mono, but is trying to input in stereo causing issues similar to this. In alsamixer use the z button to lower one side of the stereo channel of the mic to 0. For example, if at the bottom of the column it shows 100<>100, lowering it will make it look like 0...

Re: Realtek soundcard - Bad quality/possible driver issue

I'm hoping the same. If not, we can look at things like the output of amixer to see what options there are and what they're set to. I tested my audio this day too, now the strange noises are back :/ pulseaudio -k didn't work this time. Output of amixer :https://pastebin.com/X0m1Mxv5 Is this sound y...

Re: Realtek soundcard - Bad quality/possible driver issue

I can't say for sure, but it sounds like Gain was not necessary for that mic, and caused your issue with it being set. Where did you turn it off? In alsamixer? If we need to set something to do that on each boot, we can once I know how you accomplished it this time. I have absolute no idea to be ho...

Re: Realtek soundcard - Bad quality/possible driver issue

See if this cleans it up any. If not, undo it afterwards: If you're experiencing glitches, skips, pops or crackling in your audio playback, it's quite possibly caused by the timer-based scheduling pulseaudio now uses. Disable timer-based scheduling this way: Users of 18.3 and earlier versions of Mi...

Re: Realtek soundcard - Bad quality/possible driver issue

Okay. I think we're getting closer to solving this. The camera mic is the default mic in your system. You might want to install and run PulseAudio Volume Control and on the Input Devices tab click on the check mark next to the Hátsó mikrofon to make it the default mic. The sound level dropping soun...

Re: Realtek soundcard - Bad quality/possible driver issue

Two things worth mentioning. With the exception of pulseaudio -vvv and sudo chown -Rc $USER:$USER $HOME , nothing else should be outputting anything. When it just returns to the prompt, that means there were no errors and it (presumably) did its job. The next step is to test the microphone. Also, y...

Now that the permissions are fixed, try pulseaudio --start Done. No output. I also tried as sudo: W: [pulseaudio] main.c: Ez a program nincsen felkészítve arra, hogy rendszergazdai jogosultságokkal fusson (kivéve, ha a --system paraméter megadásra kerül).

Re: Realtek soundcard - Bad quality/possible driver issue

Run pulseaudio -vvv so we might get the reason it's not running. You may need to press Ctrl+C to stop the output after several seconds, but give it at least 10 seconds. Copy the last 10 lines of the output and paste them here. EDIT: After looking at your output, first run sudo chown -Rc $USER:$USER...

Re: Realtek soundcard - Bad quality/possible driver issue

Hi Duck Freeman, and welcome to the forum. Does the mic plug into a USB port, or a 3.5mm port? This matters because if USB, your issue has nothing to do with your Realtek sound card. When you reply, include the output of the following terminal commands: pacmd list-sources and pacmd list-cards The m...

Re: Realtek soundcard - Bad quality/possible driver issue

HI, do you get that sound error when you reboot from Mint to WIn7? Have you tried a shutdown, then selecting Mint from the grub menu, do you get the same results? I have a realtek sound card onboard and Mint loaded the appropriate drivers upon setup. :?: I get absolute no errors whatsoever. Both th...
