MODEP with USB Interface



I have a 6 Channel Behringer Interface I’m trying to get to work with modep, but I’m not sure its entirely possible.

MODEP works alright but when i plug in more then one effect, sound gets broken up and awlful, I expect some kind of performance issue. RAM and CPU are alright though. No Xruns either.

I tried the following jack configs:
ExecStart=/usr/bin/jackd -P70 -p26 -t2000 -dalsa -dhw:CARD=FCA1616 -p128 -n3 -r44100 -s
ExecStart=/usr/bin/jackd -v -t 2000 -P 75 -d alsa -d hw:CARD=FCA1616 -r 48000 -p 512 -n 2 -X raw -s -S

Any ideas or hints if its even possible to get it to run smoothly?



Hey, I haven’t tried an audio interface with MODEP with this many channels. Did you get it working already? Or could you try out some other USB audio devices if you have access and see if the issue is unique to the Behringer interface, or reproduces on other devices as well?


Hi, I didn’t explore further yet, I don’t have enough experience with Linux audio configuration to make any good progress :slight_smile: I have a smaller ESI Interface as well, but I need an external power source for that. When I find one I’ll try it out.

I assume there is a way to get the Behringer working as well, maybe reducing the in/outputs helps. If you have any further ideas let me know :slight_smile:


I have a Behringer 2x2 interface that I’ll try with modep later tonight or tomorrow. I’ll report back!


Hey @ThirdMountain, I don’t suppose you had a chance to try your 2x2 interface at all did you?
I’m having noise issues with my Alesis io|2 Express and I’m curious to hear if you had any issues with your interface :slight_smile:
I imagine I need to adjust my back setting but I’m under where to start.
