Configuring M-Audio Firewire solo on Linux Mint 20 Ulyana

Post by PhilNSicab »

Hello everybody,
I am trying to make my M-Audio firewire solo soundcard work on linux Mint 20 Ulyana.

I read a little bit about configuring this firewire device but without success. The soundcard appears on pavu control but I have no sound.
I installed QJackCtl but when I launch it the youtube videos or the mp3 stop playing.

I think it has something to do with IRQ so I read a little but I am not able to follow the steps because in linuxmint the files doesn't seem to have the same organisation as in ubuntu.
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FireWire/DigitalAudio
http://subversion.ffado.org/wiki/IrqPriorities

I also installed the lowlatencykernel because I intend to play music. In linux mint 19 I could use my sound card so I am pretty sure it is possible with 20.

Can somebody help me with this?

Here is inxi -Fxxxrz :

Hi PhilNSicab, and welcome to the forum.

Mint uses the same locations as Ubuntu, but that first link you found is ancient (early on it mentions Ubuntu 12, so 8 years ago?)

As far as I can tell, the device is not getting recognized when you ran inxi. Let's see if this command gives us any clues:

Code: Select all

curl https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/pulseaudio/pulseaudio/raw/master/src/utils/pa-info?inline=false | bash | nc termbin.com 9999
The last line of output will have URL pointing to your sound setup. Hopefully there'll be some clues there.

Don't quote me on this, but I think I might have read about the end of Firewire support, so that could certainly be the issue. Again, I could be way off base on that.

Hello MrEen and thanks for the quick reply!

My device is recognised. It shows up in pulseaudio and I can select it as a sound output. It also shows up in QJackCtl.
Linux mint also detects the mother card sound device, which I don't use.

On LinuxMint 19, I used to send (all the) sounds to pulseaudio-module-jack and then redirect it to my Firewire soundcard using QJackCtl.
Mozilla or music players always sends to pulseaudio while ardour or others DAWs can send directly to the soundcard. So if you dont use pulseaudio-module-jack you can't use mozilla and ardour at the same time for example.

This is new territory for me, so I need to do some searching.

I had thought it wasn't recognized from this part of your inxi output:

Code: Select all

Audio:

  driver: snd_hda_intel v: kernel bus ID: 01:00.1 chip ID: 10de:0e0f 
  Sound Server: ALSA v: k5.4.0-42-lowlatency 
But it is showing in the big output. Let me see what I can find out about this.

I'm not finding anything helpful at relating to the error.

Some people have had an issue with the newest PulseAudio causing issues. If you want to try downgrading it, which has worked about 50% of the time for those with issues, here's the command:

Code: Select all

apt update && apt install libpulse-mainloop-glib0=1:13.99.1-1ubuntu3.2 libpulse0=1:13.99.1-1ubuntu3.2 libpulsedsp=1:13.99.1-1ubuntu3.2 pulseaudio=1:13.99.1-1ubuntu3.2 pulseaudio-module-bluetooth=1:13.99.1-1ubuntu3.2 pulseaudio-utils=1:13.99.1-1ubuntu3.2
Otherwise, I would suggest joining the LinuxMusicians forum and asking there. There's a lot more people experienced with Firewire on that forum.

Let's also make sure nothing else is hogging the card. Paste the output of sudo fuser -v /dev/snd/*

Yeah, that output was fine.

I think you'll have better luck on the other forum. I've seen almost no Firewire questions on this forum since I've been helping with sound issues. I have no clue what the error is trying to tell us, but am willing to bet it's the reason the sound isn't working.

Silly question time though; The device is powered on, correct? :D

You're most welcome, and good luck! :D

The solution will be good to hear in case someone else comes here with a similar issue.

In the end I just went timeshift to go back to a clean install.

Turns out that the Firewire solo works perfectly and is very easy to configure :

1. (Optional) For lowlatency, install the lowlatency kernel :
sudo apt-get install linux-lowlatency

2. Install the ffado driver which allows to configure firewire devices :
in synaptic, just install ffado-mixer-qt4

This also install the following dependencies :
ffado-dbus-server
ffado-mixer-qt4
ffado-tools
libconfig++9v5
libdbus-c++-1-0v5
libecore1
libeina1a
libffado2
libqt5designer5
libqt5help5
libqt5printsupport5
libqt5sql5
libqt5sql5-sqlite
libqt5test5
libqt5xml5
libxml++2.6-2v5
python3-dbus.mainloop.pyqt5
python3-pyqt5
python3-sip

3. Reboot.

4. Open the ffado-mixer, go in the mix tab, in the column mixer 1/2 click on "stream 1/2 In" for stream on headphones.
This mix tab also allows you to chose all the inputs or outputs.

Done!! No need for jack. But For information I have been also able to use jack afterwards, chosing the alsa driver.

Now I would like to automate the 4rth step. Anyone knows how to do this?
