Ubuntu Multimedia :: Microphone Is Not Interactive With Sound Preferences?

Dec 3, 2010

I recently manage to make my microphone "work". I open the alsamixer and i unmuted the mic. Easy!!! But as i can hear my voice through the speakers i can't record. Actually i compare the alsamixer with the sound preferences. And what I notice is:

i)When i mute the output volume from the sound icon in the alsamixer is also muted.

ii)The same when I increase or decrease the volume.

iii)But in the input tab if I mute increase or decrease the volume nothing happens!

I can only mute unmute and change volume trhough the alsa mixer!

I use an Fujitsu siemens amilo pa 1510 with ubuntu 10.10 which I install from a pendrive.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: H2 USB Microphone Does No Longer Appear In Sound Preferences

Sep 23, 2010

I have a zoom H2 and I intend to use its usb microphone function.I connected it and it seems to work with xvidcap if I declare /dev/audio1 as the input device. Well.I want to go further and use it for other purposes and before installing jack and other applications I would like to understand why it does no longer appear in the "Sound preferences" under the 'input" and "hardware" tabs as it was the case the day before.

Ubuntu :: Opening "sound Preferences" From Sound Applet / Preferences Menu Hangs System

Dec 20, 2010

Every time I open "sound preferences" from either the sound applet or the preferences menu pulseaudio CPU usage goes right up to 100% and proceeds to lock up the entire computer. pavucontrol, paman, and all the other pulseaudio utils work fine, except for ubuntu's sound preferences. It affects a new account.This is my 10.04 desktop that is affected. I have just the default pulseaudio config.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Speaker Icon On The Top Right Gets Into Sound Preferences

Jan 13, 2011

I bought a $400 Dell Vostro V130, and decided to put 10.10 netbook remix onto it. (Vostro V130 owners: after the reboot into the new system, there is no GUI. worse, after log in, a startx means the screen goes dead. fortunately, a power key event is still detected, so reboot still works cleanly. after I did a full apt-get update, apt-get dist-upgrade, and apt-get upgrade, the screen and remix worked.)

I would now like to increase the bass, systemwide (so that ..... gets sound that is a little better). the speaker icon on the top right gets me into sound preferences, but I do not see an equalizer.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Command Line For Gnome Sound Preferences?

May 4, 2010

Is there a way to control the gnome sound preferences widget via the command line? I use optical digital out (IEC95. It works fine. but everytime I reboot there is no sound, I have to go to sound preferences, hardware tab, select my internal audio device, change it from digital stereo duplex to analog surround 5.1, then back to digital stereo duplex, and then the sound works again. I would like to be able to do this via command line so I can write a little startup script and not have to do that every time i reboot.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Find Options Under System Menu For Sound Preferences

Feb 26, 2010

I have to use alsa for audio to work under wine (otherwise pulseaudio starts eating up processor cycles and the audio comes out horrible and distorted), but I have been unable to use the mic. The mic boost is up on the alsa mixer, and they are not muted. I cannot find any options under my system menu for Sound Preferences (which seems to get references in a lot fo help forums), or anywhere else to determine which audio driver the line in on the front uses.

I'm using an Acer laptop from a couple years ago, so support should be no problem.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Crashes When Using Microphone?

May 28, 2010

I use Ubuntu 10.04 but I had this problem in 9.10 too.

I have a problem regarding my sound preferences. I have a microphone and I want to use it to make calls. The problem is that when I speak into the microphone when a program like Skype is used, my sound suddenly crashes(The microphone won't take any input nor will I hear any sound from the speakers if I play a video or music. This gets fixed if I restart the computer). This also happens if I go to Sound preferences → Input or Output and edit something there.

If I don't make any of the above, the sound works just fine as I can listen to music and play videos.

I don't know much about computer hardware but here is some info about my sound card:

Code:
VIA Technologies, Inc. VT1708/A[Azalia HDAC] (VIA High Definifion Audio Controller) (rev 10)

Subsystem: Biostar Microtech Int'l Corp Device 820f

Ubuntu :: Sound: Mic Doesn't Work - Audio Input Level Graphically Shown In Sound Preferences Shows No Fluctuations In Sound

Aug 3, 2010

I was just using the mic and watched it stop working suddenly. I was in the middle of a skype test call when the graphical mixer level died down to zero in the middle of the call. When the test call was played back, the first part sounded fine then the sound got lower until it became inaudible. Since then I can't get any sound from my mic in skype.

Also, the audio input level graphically shown in Sound Preferences shows no fluctuations in sound as it used to before. The input device is enabled. I tried using Sound Recorder to record some sound clips and that worked fine. So the mic is working but Sound Preferences and Skype seem to have the mic level really low. I'm not sure what else to think considering it was working perfectly a few minutes ago. I've tried restarting, but that didn't fix it either.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Microphone / Sound Input Not Working

Jan 21, 2011

I've tried to look for a solution for a few days now, and haven't had any results so far. I really hope you can help me so I can get to talk with my girlfriend.I'm running Lubuntu with 10.04 LTS, and alsa version 1.0.23 on Samsung NC10.Hardware works, soundcard is recognized by the OS, modules are loaded, alsamixer volume up and unmuted, sound output is ok, arecord or sound recorder don't get input.

- The microphone hardware works. Having the volumes up I hear the noise from the speakers when tapping the microphone.
- Soundcard is recognized by OS (and like I said, music and all other sound output is perfectly fine)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Conclusion Of A Sound From A Microphone On Columns [ALSA]

I should create the bridge between a linear input and output. It is desirable, with possibility to impose effects on a sound. (But it isn't obligatory)

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Microphone Config With Onboard Sound?

Apr 12, 2011

I have the MCP55 HD Audio on board. Is there a way to configure the mic to mono, 16 bit with 16000Hz sampling as a system input. The signal will be read by the installed program pocketsphinx_continuous.

This is not to make recordings. I can make these settings in KRecord/KDE3. This is for the system input. The mic works with the program and KRecord.

Or must a compatible sound card be installed?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Microphone's Don't Work Properly - Choppy Or Laggy Sound

Jun 3, 2011

I run ubuntu 10.10 with an 870-g45 motherboard which contains a VIA VT1828S integrated sound chip with 8 audio channels as it states on [URL]... I am having issues with getting microphones to work properly on my computer. Sound output works great but microphones don't. I've noticed when I tested mic's on the sound configuration it would act like it gets input but it would be choppy or laggy sound. Anytime i talk to people on voice chat they say my voice sounds like it keeps clipping in and out and they can't understand a thing I say. I have tried looking on google but any fix I looked at didn't seem to work for me. I don't know if it's motherboard related

1) the volume preferences is back, i was logged in as root, and now as my account, and preferences are here, but still no sound. it was also not on mute.

Hardware :: Tinkered With Sound Preferences And Now There Is No Sound?

Jul 8, 2011

I am using ubuntu 11.04.

By the command : aplay -l | grep card
I got this output:
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC272 Analog [ALC272 Analog]
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 1: ALC272 Digital [ALC272 Digital]
card 1: HDMI [HDA ATI HDMI], device 3: HDMI 0 [HDMI 0]

[Code]...

I was tinkering with sound preferences, assuming that there would be something like "Reset to defaults" button, but there isnt. Earlier the sound was fine (not great quality, but it was there), but now its gone. I am attaching the status of my sound preference's hardware, input and output tab as a screenshot.

P.S. I know that most probably earlier in the hardware--->Profile option, "Analog stereo duplex" was selected. But selecting that doesnt work now. Also, isnt digital better than analog ? (why wasnt it something like digital stereo duplex, when I seem to have that ability in my sound card ?)

I have an Ubuntu 10.10 OS in a VMware player in which I am unable to get any sound at all. The host windows os plays sound so it can't be the sound card.

General :: Getting Sound To Application From Sound Card Line-in/microphone?

May 7, 2010

I'm trying to use an application (e.g., mplayer) to play sound that comes in my sound card (via the mic jack). (What I'm really trying to do is sync a sports broadcast by putting a delay on AM audio, as described here. I'm stuck at the part where it says "this shouldn't be too difficult".) I've seen some hints that there might be code-heavy solutions using LADSPA or some JACK SDK, but there's just gotta be a simpler way. I'm hoping for something like

Code:

mplayer -delay -7 - < /dev/mic

but I'm darned if I can find it. I'm sure there are plenty of other sports fans who would find this useful for syncing radio with the digital TV feed...

Ubuntu :: Setting - Wrong Device Was Chosen In The Sound Preferences

Sep 7, 2010

(prior to this i had 8.10 and sound) added a lot of things through command lines,etc...and accidentally stumbled on the fact that the wrong device was chosen in the sound preferences... can someone explain to me what the settings should be? i have just done a clean install of lucid lynx 32 bit i386, no dual boot, just plain clean and fresh lucid lynx. under the output tab- this is where i have a choice between: Internal Audio (analog stereo duplex) USB Audio i know the usb is my speakers now...but what is that analog thing?

under the hardware tab- the internal audio can be analog stereo duplex or analog stereo output, analog stereo input, off, or analog surround with various levels of output from 4.1 to 7.1 the usb audio has only two choices: analog stereo output or digitla stereo duplex under the input tab- internal audio analog stereo is the only device listed choice of connector: microphone 1, mic 2, line in

at the moment i dont have my headphones plugged in, dont want to complicate things. but i am hoping to get skype working and be able to leave the speakers in and when i plug in headphones they will must the speakers automatically. if it doesnt work like that i wont die...but i would like to no have to disconnect the speakers just to use headphones, which is what people i know say they have to do.

Software :: Gnome Sound Preferences Doesn't See Mic

May 9, 2011

Something broke recently on my Fedora 14 system. Up until several weeks ago, the mic worked fine, but now it is no longer recognized.

That is to say, if I tap on the mic, sound comes out of the speakers, so the hardware is working, but it doesn't work under Skupe nor does it show up as an input device under Gnome.

Thinking something may have broke in a recent kernel, I went back to an earlier, but the problem remains (now running 2.6.35.11-83.fc14.x86_64, but I have the following installed).

how to get Skype and Gnome to see my mic again?

Code:
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 3784000 Dec 20 22:19 vmlinuz-2.6.35.10-72.fc14.x86_64
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 3783872 Dec 23 17:10 vmlinuz-2.6.35.10-74.fc14.x86_64
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 3785120 Feb 7 08:21 vmlinuz-2.6.35.11-83.fc14.x86_64
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 3789088 Mar 31 23:27 vmlinuz-2.6.35.12-88.fc14.x86_64

Fedora :: Missing 5.1 Surround Profile In Sound Preferences?

Oct 26, 2010

I'm trying to get 5.1 surround sound working on my Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop running Fedora 13 (64 bit), but there is no option for it under "Sound Preferences - Hardware - Profile". There is an option for "Analog Surround 4.0 Output", which does as it says and uses four of the speakers (front and rear left and right) correctly (and the subwoofer as well I think, though not sure if this is done correctly).Running "aplay -L" gives the following:

Quote:
default
Default
frontARD=Intel,DEV=0
HDA Intel, STAC92xx Analog
Front speakers
surround40ARD=Intel,DEV=0

[Code]...

it looks like it should be possible to set 5.1 surround sound (i.e. I don't think it's a driver issue).Though running "speaker-test -c 6" doesn't quite work as it should - it outputs via the subwoofer on "Center" and doesn't produce any sound on "LFE". But to start with at least - is there a way of manually forcing "Analog Surround 5.1 Output" to be a choice under "Sound Preferences"?
