I’m recording some song demos using Ardour… at this point I have an electroacoustic guitar track recorded using Line-in, next step is rocord voice. I have a new Samson C03U USB microphone for that purpose but i don’t know how to record from it in Ardour. Ubuntu Hardy recognizes the microphone (I guess), because there is a “2: Samson C03U (Alsa mixer)” option in the “File->Change Device” in the Ubuntu’s volume control.
In the “System->Preferences->Sound” panel i have the next conf.:
Music and Movies
Sound conferencing (playback and capture)
i have “PulseAudio sound server” selected
and in “Default mixer tracks” the selected one is "Playback: ALSA PCM on sorround 51:0 (intel ICH5) via DMA (PulseAudio mixer).
So the question is:
¿How do I configure Ardour to record from my new USB microphone and (if needed) how to configure Ubuntu’s sound preferences to work well with Ardour-Samson C03U?
