Hello, I just went through the steps in the the article listed above while translating the steps to use them in ALSA. Ardour is still not recording properly after a restart of my system.
Here’s what ardour is doing now:
I attempted to add images showing the progress in attempting to start, Audio/MIDI Setup and other images along the way, but was stopped by the rule to upload only one image on a post for new users. In the Audio/MIDI setup it says ‘Stopped’ between ALSA and start. I went to routing grid by pressing the button above ‘Comments’ and before that, when the DAW is initially started up, the feedback button wasn’t blinking orange (I’m simply trying to communicate details of the images the new user rule prevented me from uploading).
After add a ‘monophonic track’, pressing the record button in only the track, enabling the system and master in for left to left and right to right, all according to Ardour 6 Quickstart (recording, editing, mixing and exporting) - YouTube
I’m still not getting any audio feedback in my headphones from ardour while this is playing, while the system indicates both my headphones and microphone are connected and enabled. When I switch to system audio and try this, I do get feedback but it there is lots of noise and it seems I’m only able to use the system microphone. I can’t hear the feedback when I’m recording, but only when I have record enabled in the audio track, the top bar, and press play, am I able to go back and listen to the output. I tried exporting the output and it was decent, but I’d still like to get my headphones. When I have my system audio enabled the Speaker and PCM bars in alsamixer immediately go all the way up , with nothing else changing except for the master audio, which goes up as I increase the volume. When only using the headphones the only bar filled is Mic Boost
What I’d like to know is how I can get the audio playback from my microphone audible in my headphones while recording like in Ardour 6 Quickstart (recording, editing, mixing and exporting) - YouTube
