• Antergos vs Focusrite Scarlett 18i20

    I have a Focusrite Scarlett 18i20 that I use with my Windows rig for studio recording, and they are connected to a nice pair of monitors. Just for kicks, I connected it to my laptop running Antergos to see if it would work. The device shows up under sound input devices, but not output.

    It’s not critical that I get this working, I’d just like to so I can use my good speakers with this laptop from time to time. What information do you need to be able to help?

  • Just resurrecting this.

  • This is a very specific question, I’m afraid.

    Maybe you have more luck in a specialised sound forum, you can ask about how to run it in Arch as it will work the same in Antergos.


  • FWIW I have a 6i6 and one of the main gotchas I found was having to run alsamixer in a terminal (F6 and select the right device) and unmute (m) some channels before hearing any sound. I’ve been using it with Pulseaudio and Jack fairly successfully for the last few weeks. I just have to “pulseaudio -k” in a terminal after a reboot to get it to “see” Jack (jackdbus actually).
