Had a bit of trouble getting this card up and running, as I’m new to all of this but in the end I got it working, well at least audio out, haven’t tested the built in mic’s yet.
Anyway I installed the drives as per Waveshares instructions (not sure if it was necessary)and used the following settings in the audio setup:
-P 70 -t 2000 -s -d alsa -d hw:0 -r 48000 -p 256 -n 2 -X raw
I think this card is a good fun cheap option if you want to build a little portable Zynthian with built in speakers.
Hi @Gadjet! May I extend to you a warm welcome to our little community. Well done on getting this card working. I haven’t checked to see if something similar already exists in the list of supported cards nor whether the CODEC is supported or needs the drivers installed. It would be good to add support for this card. Can you say whether it has stereo input? It looks like it had dual microphone but to be more useful it would benefit from line level inputs.
Wellcome to our little community of crazy noize makers and congrats by your victory with this card!! As @riban as explained, it would be nice to include support for this card. I see the driver is already included in the zynthian image, probably because it’s already distributed with the mainstream kernel, so there is no need to install any driver from waveshare. Simply adding the lines to the config would be enough.
A little but important detail: It’s not a good idea to use the card number in the jackd options because when you boot your zynthian with more devices connected (i.e. your favorite MIDI controller) is very probable that the numbering changes what would break your config. You can improve your config and make it more reliable by using the sound device name. Please, run this command:
