I am trying to use Ardour on a Raspberry Pi 3B+, with my Focusrite Scarlett 18i8.
I have some instruments connected to the soundcard and can capture them in Ardour fine. But somehow, even though the master channel shows some audio level, I have no audio coming out of the soundcard.
It is now few days that I am trying to solve this problem and I am very confused. I managed to make it work once or twice but it was just temporary and after the next reboot, the problem was back.
I am able to reproduce this problem from a fresh install of Raspberry OS, where I only install Ardour. I am using Ardour builtin ALSA driver and do not mess with anything else.
I check the audio connections inside Ardour and they should be fine:
- Hardware inputs goes to Ardour tracks
- Ardour tracks goes to Ardour master bus
- Ardour master bus goes to hardware output
I tried to reproduce the same on my Windows computer and it works just fine.
Anyone has an idea what I could be doing wrong?
