I had an old RPI3 lying that I tried to make a Pure data box out of years ago and never really got it fully working.
And today I stumbled upon Patchbox and was very happy to see that.
I installed it and had it up and running with in half an hour. Which is awesome, thinking about how much time I spend on it years ago.
So a huge thanks for Patchbox
Anyway to the point:
I am not getting any sounds!
ATM I am trying to use ALSA driver, cause I don’t have an audio interfaces that works with RPI3 yet, but I am planning to get a Pisound. But for now I just want to play around and get the feeling of this little box and can do with just ALSA drivers.
I followed the installation wizard. But my Jack settings didn’t work, so I opened
And made my Jack settings and started Jack. I had to make buffer setting for 1024 for jack to be able to start.
Then I opened Pure Data and set it to use Jack for audio. In PD I get an error for the Jack midi drivers, but I guess that should matter on the audio, right?
JACK: cannot connect input ports system:midi_capture_1 -> pure_data:input0
JACK: cannot connect input ports system:midi_capture_2 -> pure_data:input1
I did a quick test patch in pure data and I am sure the audio processing is turned on, so Jack ins running, the audio rate objects are working.
I still can not HEAR any audio from PD. I connected headphones for the audio out of the RPI 3, but no sounds comes out.
I also check audio from the web browser, opening a youtube video and there is also no sound from the browser.
So it might be some overall audio interface setting I am missing here. I know ALSA is working not very well, but I just want to play around a bit until I get the Pisound.
I also updated Patchbox OS, but that didn’t change anything.
Any suggestions to what it might be the problem?
