Hello Everyone, I am loving the Pisound! It is Brilliant. Now question. When recording a new track in Audacity, I turn on the option Software Playthrough so I can Monitor what I am Recording using the PIsound output. I turn off the default option to overdub and monitor, I hit record and Audacity begins recording then stops anywhere from 6 to 16 seconds. I played with the buffer setting in audacity record pref.
How should I be monitoring new tracks using Pisound and Audacity version 2.1.2?
Maybe I should’t need to monitor but it is a handy feature, lol
Hey, I was able to reproduce this issue, however, I didn’t yet find a workaround. I can’t see any error getting logged by Audacity on this situation, so it’s not making this easy. I’ve also tried building version 2.2.2 of Audacity from source, but it still has the same issue. Another thing I plan to try to is to configure a build with JACK backend enabled - software using JACK usually does better than using ALSA directly. I’ll let you know how it goes, getting this right takes a while…
Thank You for trying to get a solution, I know that the overdub option on secondary tracks allows monitor without an issue. So maybe the answer is to just record a click track on the First track. No reason to monitor that anyway. I guess I am just old school. It is probably a bug in audacity anyway, that is my guess.
Hey! I just tried installing latest Raspbian Desktop (2018-10-09) build, and Audacity seems to be back to normal!
It may be enough to do the
sudo apt-get update and
sudo apt-get upgrade, but in case that doesn’t fix the issue, try the new build on a spare SD card.
Just in case, the kernel version that came with the OS image is
