First message for me, so I have to congratulate the blokas team for the good work: the pisound is very well done and a great product. I’m an old time linux audio user so it is a super convenient device for me.
One of the main uses I wanted a raspi+pisound box for is for running the excellent sooperlooper looping software. It needs jack and unfortunately doesn’t work with alsa alone, but I get it to work quite well with a period of 128, except that sporadically it “freezes” (for lack of a better word) jack and the audio is abruptly stopped. With greater periods the issue may be postponed but it happens nonetheless.
At this point the only option is to kill both sooperlooper and jackd. I already sent a message to the sooperlooper forum http://essej.net/slforum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=4924 but I think I might also check here…
It seems that it’s when sooperlooper get xruns (the message it starts to emit continuosly is got xrun). I tried with other jack software like yoshimi and I don’t have this behaviour even in case of xruns.
Anyone tried sooperlooper and got the same issue?
Thanks in advance
