Mixxx issues

Post by jeff37922 » Sat Sep 29, 2018 9:39 pm

I'm trying to set up the Mixxx DJ program in Linux Mint 19, and I am having tons of issues with audio setup. I am running the Creative Audigy RX sound card. When I try to set the microphone to use the SB1550 Mic Capture, it gives me an "unknown error" message, so I have no use of my microphone.

Also, on Audacity, when I try to record with the microphone, then play back my voice, I sound like one of the Chipmunks. How would I fix that?

It seems everything I do on Windows 7 was a piece of cake, and then when I try to do the same things in Linux with the same hardware and programs, everything is so complicated, if it even works at all. I am NOT looking forward to January 2020 when I will be forced to switch to Linux from Windows 7.

Hi again jeff37922.

I'm betting PulseAudio and Audacity are using different sample rates (44100 vs 48000) and you could try changing either so they match.
