Ubuntu Multimedia :: Creative Sound Blaster Arena Surround Not Working?

Sep 12, 2010

I found out there is no way to install headset's own drivers. At least I am looking for a way to switch its 5.1 property on. Is there any way for it on ubuntu 10.04 with pulse or whatever works?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Creative Blaster X-Fi Surround 5.1 Soundcard?

Sep 2, 2010

I own an external usb soundcard: Creative Blaster X-Fi Surround 5.1. After some tweaking around Multimedia Settings, (K)Ubuntu 9.10 successfully detected the card. I can now use it.

However, setting the sound level in KMixer does not work at all - KMixer now only contains a Microphone channel. Using hotkeys, I can still turn volume from 0 to 100%, but that has no effect on the volume produced by the soundcard. The sound card comes with a sound joggle, but turning it left or right has no effect whatsoever on the volume level.

Is there a way to solve either of these issues? p.s. Also, the card came with a Windows app and driver cd.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi USB: Volume Control Not Working?

May 22, 2010

Does anybody know if it's possible to get the volume control knob (the one on the device) on the USB Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi device in Ubuntu 10.4? The sound is working great for me, but I actually bought it mostly for the volume so I'm hoping there's a way to fix it before I return it.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: PCI Express Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio?

May 6, 2010

I've recently installed Linux Mint 8 64-bit on my computer and getting my sound card to work. I've been searching around the internet for solutions but I know next to nothing about computer audio.

My sound card is a PCI Express Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio. Came with my computer. Told it uses the SB Audigy chipset. Using the onboard audio is not an option. The card shows up in Sound Preferences under the Hardware tab, but I cannot get sound from it. Here's what they told me to do:

Install the karmic alsa backports through the Terminal Install hidden Level 5 updates to update the kernel
Disable every audio device except the SB card (the others are onboard and HDMI) Check volume levels in alsamixer, PulseAudio Device Chooser and Volume Control I also tried to install the OpenAudio driver (not sure, will double check), which crashed Linux every time I try to activate it.

Hardware :: Creative Labs Sound Blaster 16 PCI Sound Card

Mar 20, 2009

I'm running WinXP Pro on a Dell XPS 710 with a Creative X-Fi sound card. Been away from Linux for a year or so since I got this machine and would like to come back. Can you suggest/recommend a sound card (5.1 preferred) that has a high success rate with the Linux OS. I will probably install Open Suse or Kubuntu. I'm more than willing to dump the high end sound card for less flash.

Jun 9, 2010

I have a serious problem with my sound card and Ubuntu 10.04. In the others distros (Gentoo, Sabayon, Fedora, Puppy...) the mic run very good, but in Ubuntu i can't record any sound. I can ear the sound exit from the speaker, but with sw like Sound Recorder, Audacity and Skype i can't record the sound. I tried EVERY setting in alsa mixer/Gnome alsa mixer but I can't resolve the problem.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Creative Sound Blaster Live Value Dell OEM Card SB0200?

Aug 17, 2010

Has anyone ever experienced an issue with a Creative Sound Blaster Live! Value Dell OEM sound card, models SB0200 and SB0203, using the EMU10K1X chip that causes any multimedia application (Amarok) or flash web site where the audio plays back way too fast?

I tried this on two different Dells, a Dimension 4600 and Dimension 8300. The only variable that was a constant was the Creative card. I took the OEM card out and put in another card, audio playback speed was fine. The only reason I am asking, even though the OEM card is slightly inferior, it has the front panel multimedia connector pins on the OEM card. Thus, if I use another card, either the front panel multimedia jacks become unusable or I have to turn on the integrated sound in the BIOS and run two sound cards.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Creative X-Fi Surround 5.1 USB - How To Get 5.1 - Home Theater System With Optical?

May 29, 2010

I bought the Creative X-Fi 5.1 Surround USB card today and it works flawlessly with my 5.1 speaker set that I use for my computer. However, in the next few days, I'm getting a 5.1 home theater system to which I want to hook up both my new SACD player and my PC.

I got the Creative because it has an optical output, so it should allow me to send 5.1 audio to the receiver. I'm a bit confused, though, because when I look at my hardware tab in the Sound Preferences, I only have the options that I attached to choose from. There is no digital/optical multichannel profile in there.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound Coming From Creative Labs XiFi Sound Card

Dec 20, 2010

I have been using Ubuntu as my main OS on my desktops for a couple of years now. Started off with a HP with a Creative Labs XiFi soundcard, but am now using a Dell with a Creative Labs Audigy. Sound worked perfectly on the Dell since a clean install (about 7 months ago). I turned it on a week or so ago, and no sound! Even the little sound indicator in the notification area has gone.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Get Surround Sound In 10.04

Jul 16, 2010

Alsa says I'm using a HDA ATI SB audio card with realtek ALC662 rev 1. chip, I've set the default channels to 6 for 5.1 in /etc/pulse/daemon.conf but got only stereo.

; default-sample-format = s16le
; default-sample-rate = 44100
; default-sample-channels = 6
; default-channel-map = front-left,front-right

I would assume I have to do something with the channel map, but I don't know where to begin. I can say it is not a hardware issue as it works fine in windows 7 where my mic in is my sub-woofer/center out and my line in is my line in is my rear speaker out. I tried going into sound preferences to see if I could get it to use line in and mic in as sub-woof out and rear out , but there was no such option. All I was allowed was analog duplex 1 output / 1 input.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Blaster Audigy - Everything Worked Perfectly Out Of The Box Except Audio

Feb 17, 2011

I've been using Ubuntu 10.10 for a few months now (after about a 5 year hiatus from all things Linux) and when I first booted up, everything worked perfectly out of the box except audio. I have a Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 4 sound card, and after searching the forums I used [URL] to successfully get my audio working.

Now, I'd like to try Kubuntu. Like Ubuntu, when I use the live CD everything but audio works. However, I can't install gnome-alsamixer like I did to fix the sound under Ubuntu (of course, I may not have had all the repositories enabled, I didn't think of this until later). Also, KMix didn't seem to offer an option that worked.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 5.1 Surround Sound Bass Redirection?

Mar 5, 2010

When I decode an audio clip which contain 5.1 streams (the encoding doesn't matter - or does it?) I cannot find an option which allows redirection of the lower frequencies (from front, back and center channels) to the sub woofer (LFE channel). I understand that this perfectly normal and this is how 5.1 supposed to work. My problem is that my speakers are not full range, so they cannot reproduce the bass in the streams. What I want to know is if there is a way to do something like this: [URL]

Which is described as: Bass redir - Bass redirection. Route basses from all channels to subwoofer. Works only if it is subwoofer at output speakers. Highly recommended for systems with separate subwoofer. Basses are routed before mixing so basses are shown at LFE input level (although 'real' LFE may be absent).

I'm aware of the enable-lfe-remixing = yes option. It works fine for stereo, but not for 5.1

I use ubuntu 9.10 and my pulseaudio version is 0.9.19. The player I use most is SMPlayer (version 0.6.8 (SVN r3213)) and AC3-liba52 for AC3 decoding. My system is up to date.

Currently using an Asrock ION 330 with an SPDIF output and running 10.04It works as stereo but can't get the system to run as surround sound and everything shows as 2 channels only.The hardware itself supports it fine as it works under windows 7 without issues so it has to be a config issue somewhere.I have tried everything I can find via google including upgrading the alsa drivers but so far there has been no change.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Surround Sound On Realtek ALC892?

Oct 4, 2010

I've been trying to get my surround sound(5.1) to work for the past couple of of days, followed a number of guides, but nothing seems to get it working at all. I'm connecting the speakers using 3 analogue audio cables, I have tested and they work fine under Windows. When I go into the Sound options in Ubuntu I don't see a 5.1 profile listed under the Hardware tab, only stereo(and that works fine).

The sound controller is a Realtek ALC892 built-in to my mobo(Gigabyte P55A-UD3).

Here is some info I've seen requested in other threads, I'm running 10.10 RC, but I can assure you it doesn't work under earlier versions.

Code:
Linux Yurippe 2.6.35-22-generic #33-Ubuntu SMP Sun Sep 19 20:32:27 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Code:
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Surround Sound Works As Stereo?

Nov 13, 2010

I just got a 5.1 Surround sound system and set it up. I found that it was only working as stereo, though (That is, only the two frontal speakers were producing any sound). I made sure everything was not muted in alsamixer and checked that the hardware was set to 5.1 in the Sound Preferences Hardware tab.

I'm using Ubuntu 10.10 64bit and my sound card is an onboard Intel DG41TY, Realtek ALC888VC codec.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 10.10 - Enable Surround Sound Through HDMI

Mar 20, 2011

I have a Acer Aspire Revo R3600 running Ubuntu 10.10. Its a clean install, all I have done is update the NVidia drivers and ASLA. The PC connects to my AV Receiver via HDMI and I have stereo sound but no surround sound. If I go to System > Preferences > Sound and look under the hardware tab I only have "Internal Audio Digital Stereo (HDMI) Output" and no mention of surround sound or 5.1 etc. I assume this is part of the problem.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 4.1 Surround Sound Doesn't Work

I have these Creative Inspire M4500 4.1 surround sound speakers.I got them to work succesfully on my older computer by installing the ALSAmixer. and then unmuting the channels. However on my new computer even after installing ALSAmixer, i cannot seem to be able to get playback from my rear two speakers. I tried the community ubuntu documentation and ALSA's own guide(which seemed too complicated for me.)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Recording With Audacity And Sound Blaster Mp3 / External Usb Audio Card

Jul 18, 2010

I'm trying to record some audio from 4-track cassette tapes using Audacity and a Sound Blaster mp3+ external usb audio card.I'm using Karmic.I have fiddled with levels on the sound card using alsamixer, but the only I way I can detect any sound from the tapes when recording is by turning the levels all the way up in alsamixer, and in doing this, I can faintly make out the audio beneath a large wall of static. If the levels are not maxed out, I only get static when recording in Audacity.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Finally: Digital AC-3 Surround Sound With Pulseaudio ?

Oct 29, 2010

Here is the update to the old thread that somehow disappeared "HOWTO: A52 Encoded 5.1 Surround Sound Awesomeness with PulseAudio and ALSA on Hardy" thread (archived here). See also this bug report.There are two steps here: add the a52 plugin, and tell pulseaudio to use it.

Step 1:
Go to a terminal and do the following:

Code:
sudo bash
echo "pcm.a52 {[code]....

Pulse should come back on its own unless you disabled autospawn.Now pulse should be aware of your digital surround output. Go to System -> Preferences -> Sound. Click on the "Hardware" tab and change the profile to one of the 'Digital Surround 5.1' profiles. Play some sound (I like to test with www.pandora.com) and enjoy!If it doesn't show up, it probably means that alsa didn't create it correctly. To test if alsa sees the a52 device, type:

Code:
aplay -D a52:0

If it errors out (audio open error: No such file or directory) then that means it did not like your asound.conf settings. You might learn something by looking at the output of 'sudo alsa reload' or just 'aplay'.[code].....

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 5.1 Surround Sound Plays Very Poor Quality

Nov 8, 2010

I got a 5.1 desktop sound sys for my recently built gaming rig. It sounds great. On Windows, that is. In ubuntu when I'm playing music, primarily when the subwoofer plays the bass, the speakers sound like they're farting and ripping phone books in half. Also, they get very statticy and sort of quiet. In sound preferences, analog stereo duplex is selected, if that's of any value. How can I get good sound playback in ubuntu?

Mar 16, 2010

Well i will write this down one more time i hope you don't delete it again To enable surround sound with ALC888 on Intel DG31PR for all versions of ubuntu inluding Lucid.(this works on other distros with alsa as well) gksu gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf Find this line (if there is no such line (or the file is empty) it doesn't matter just add the next line and save it)(note that on older Ubuntu versions the file is named "alsa-base" as far as i remember): # Prevent abnormal drivers from grabbing index 0

Add this line after the #Prevent abnormal drivers from grabbing index0: options snd_hda_intel model=3stack-6ch-dig Then use this command to edit pukeaudio: gksu gedit /etc/pulse/daemon.conf

Find this line:
; default-sample-channels = 2
Change it to (make sure to remove the ; in front of it):
default-sample-channels = 6

[Code]...
