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)

I have had trouble with my sound since installing. I have been able to get output sounds to work by setting my sound output to:Internal Audio Digital Stereo (IEC95 instead of:However, my microphone does not work. I know it was working earlier on but I can't figure out what the settings were at that time.Are there any ideas on what I can try to get the input and output audio working correctly?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: No Sound Input From My Microphone

Jun 17, 2011

I have no sound input from my microphone. With a fresh install of 11.4/gnome desktop it was working.

Then all I did was installing the multimedia support from the script in the opensuse guide (which interestingly includes some files for k3b so I suspect there is a conflict of libraries now that some kde libs have been installed) and a full system update. After that, my mic has stopped working.

If it helps at all, the output of the ALSA Information Script at my machine is hosted at: [url]

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Studio 9.10 MIDI Input From Sound Card Not Working

Mar 21, 2010

I am using ubuntu 9.10 (kernel 2.6.31-9-rt) and an M-Audio Delta 1010 PCI sound card, and trying to get MIDI inputs and outputs to work on this sound card.I have Jack installed and working. MIDI signals from virtual keyboard or a MIDI player can be routed to fluidsynth, and fluidsynth's audio can be played back through the outputs of the delta 1010.I can use a MIDI sequencer (e.g. rosegarden or qtractor) to record MIDI from virtual keyboard, with jack handling the routing.

But, no matter how I configure the connections in jack, I can't get any signals from the "MIDI In" port on the sound card.Does anybody have some thoughts on how to fix this? Where is the disconnect between the delta 1010 and qtractor? I am concerned also that the "MIDI In" LED on the front panel of the Delta 1010 never blinks. There must be some basic ALSA configuration that needs to be done to activate and use these MIDI ports, or something. I've been trying to figure it out for days.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Casio Keyboard AUX To USB Microphone Input?

Dec 12, 2010

I am trying to get the sounds that are played on the Casio CTK-651 keyboard from the keyboard into ubuntu or windows. I can get the signal, but no sound is played back under Windows when it's connected with an AUX-to-USB connector. When I do it with the MIDI-to-USB connector in windows and ubuntu, whenever I press a key, I get what is programmed into LMMS through connecting in a channel. I can't get the piano or guitar or whatever sound that the keyboard is making into the computer. I can upload some video to show what I'm talking about with the aux connector.

Debian Multimedia :: No Microphone Recording But Input Does Works In Some Way

Aug 12, 2011

For some time, my microphone input doesn't reach the recording application, but instead goes directly to the loudspeaker. If I make a sound in the microphone, it will go to the loudspeakers, and Audacity or Skype will not "hear" anything (and of course, with this set-up, there's a constant noise in the loudspeaker, coming from the microphone).This problem goes away if I install PulseAudio. So obviously, there's nothing broken with either of ALSA or hardware, only some misconfiguration somewhere, and PulseAudio can make a sense of the mess. Playing with all sorts of configurations in Alsamixer didn't help.

Unfortunately, I don't want PulseAudio, because it causes output problems which are a bit too subtle for me to describe coherently here. So I'd rather fix ALSA than Pulse.Please direct me into how to investigate this. The OS is Debian Unstable, the audio card is an integrated Intel ALC1200.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Microphone Works Only After Switching To Another Input Setting And Back

May 7, 2010

since 9.10.My microphone works, BUT only after I open the 'Sound Preferences' panel, and change the setting under the 'Connector' tab to another selection (any will do), then set it back to 'Microphone 1'.Since this works, I wondered if there is a way to make this happen automatically at every login?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Record Microphone Input Using Ffmpeg / Alsa Always Receive Error

Slackware :: Using Mumble 1.2.2 - No Sound And Microphone Not Working

Mar 28, 2011

I used Mumble 1.2.2 for a while on my Slackware 13.1 system without any problems. After some time (before 1.2.3 was released) it suddenly stopped working. A few days ago, I wiped my disk and re-installed Slackware 13.1. Compiling 1.2.3 worked. Running it just stopped with a "FUTEX"-Error. I searched the source code for futex (with "-i" parameter) and didn't found anything. There were matches in the compiled object files. So, it's probably something with Qt.

Then I compiled Mumble 1.2.2 and run it. Worked. But it didn't find my microphone. I can hear everybody else but I cannot talk. I tried every device but there is no sound. If I activate the microphone in alsaconfig I can hear myself, so the microphone seems to work. A few minutes ago, I compiled Mumble 1.2.3. You know what? It runs without any "FUTEX_WAIT" error. But, the microphone does not work.

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:

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

Subsystem: Biostar Microtech Int'l Corp Device 820f

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To "listen" To A Microphone Input

Jun 10, 2010

I have a vinyl turntable. The only output it has are some RCA cables. I've connevted these to other RCA cables, so now, I can put it into one of the audio in jacks on my computer. It's just a standard microphone plug. In Windows, there was an option that would let me listen to the input, and this would be the only way I could listen to my vinyls. In kubuntu, I can't find any way to do so. I don't want to have to boot into Windows 7 every time I want to listen to my vinyls, so is there any way I can get around this?

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.

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)

Slackware :: USB Headset - Volume Control On Them Stopped Working - Sound Works - Microphone Doesn't

Oct 29, 2010

When I started using Slackware I've been using USB headset. Everything ran perfectly fine. They got recognized, I could use all of it's functions and so on. Unfortunately volume control on them stopped working so I had to service them, and like in every third world country, yay I need to wait minimum three weeks just so they can press a button and say "Yup, they don't work".

I bought normal headset to use them while other one is getting fixed, and didn't expect any problems with them considering they are "old" technology, normal audio input and output.

Now problem is following, sound works fine but microphone doesn't. Once I managed to "fix" it by switching audio input from mic to something else and then back to mic, now even that doesn't work. Another... "problem" is if I leave my USB webcam plugged in while booting computer, there is no sound at all, ether on line ones or USB ones but I can easily solve that problem by unplugging webcam, rebooting and plugging it back in later.

Now everything ran fine until my computer shutdown while I was sleeping. Don't know why, but it started happening recently, don't see anything smart in logs so I assume its... something, read it could be cache, HDD, temperature and so on but since logs don't write down anything smart... will deal with it some other time.

When I talk I can actually hear myself on the headset, which probably means that they work. If I put mic boost all the way up, I can hear myself perfectly clear, but somehow... seems that that information just doesn't get to Slackware, well it gets somewhat considering that it reacts to me adjusting mic boost on KMix, but everything else... no.

Arecord doesn't record anything, TS register as microphone isn't plugged in at all, skype doesn't get any input ether.

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

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 10.04 - Cannot Get Microphone Working

Dec 4, 2010

I can't seem to get my microphone working. All the levels are maxed, nothing is muted. I've checked pavucontrol, alsamixer, and sytem-preferences-sound, but according to all that, there is nothing muted, and all the levels are maxed. I'm running ubuntu 10.04. My mic works fine in Windows vista, but not in Ubuntu. I am thinking I may need to update my drivers or something. Also I've gone over the forums but haven't found a solution that works, many of them involve changing the levels in system-preferences-sound, but again, that doesn't work. I've posted the results of aplay -l [URL].

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Get Any Sound To Come Through On The Input

Mar 21, 2010

I've never tried getting my mic to work in linux up until now. For some reason I can't get any sound to come through on the input. I don't really mess with my sound settings so my knowledge is pretty limited in this area. I have a Creative Audigy 2 card and it seems to be using PulseAudio. alsamixer, aplay etc. all seem to NOT be installed. I can edit volume one of two ways. The gnome sound prefrecnes or using pacmd. I'm kind of at a loss here and my searches haven't turned up anything useful as they refer to alsamixer etc.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Get Microphone Working In Flash

Feb 15, 2010

I've been trying to get my webcam microphone working in flash on Kubuntu 9.10.I have a Logitek Pro 9000, and video and audio work in other applications (skype), but video is all that works in flash (I have flash 10 installed). In the flash settings, it lists the only microphone option as "Linux Microphone", which does nothing. This seems to be a common problem, with a few solutions offered.

One I've tried, which seems fairly straightforward for gnome users, is here. However, whenever I run pavucontrol, I get an error reading "Connection failed: Connection refused".Does anyone know how to either get pulseaudio open, or how to get the microphone working in flash without it?

I've made sure with the ALSA Mixer that everything is turned on, and all my sound settings are fine, but microphone won't work in Skype.
