So I’ve finally decided to take the plunge and move my audio workstation over to Linux, as I’ve been a long time Linux user (both desktop and server), and have just installed Ubuntu Studio. I’ve run into a bit of a setup issue, and am hoping someone that’s running an Envy24 based card will give me some hints on how to get all my input/output channels configured in JACK so I can begin trying out Ardour. I apologize if this has been covered elsewhere, as I did search but found nothing relevant to my issue.
So far I have been able to configure JACK so it appears I am receiving an input signal (I’m running envy24control from the command line and can see the meters respond on the input side), but I’m not hearing anything from my monitors. I’m basically just loading up Audacity and playing a .wav file for testing purposes. I’m not sure if I have the output channels configured properly - in JACK I have the “Input device” set to hw:0 (which is the “Hoontech Soundtrack Audio DSP24”) and the “output device” set to the same thing. Previously, in Windows I would use the small “patchbay” tray application to “enable” the DSP2000 break out box, but I don’t see an equivalent application to do this, nor do I see anything in JACK.
If anyone else has configured the hoontech device (mine is a rebranded “STA Audio ADC/DAC 2000”) and would be willing to share how they set it up it would be appreciated.
