• Analog Mix on Creative Labs SB Audigy always silent


    Hello Antergos Community

    My problem seems to be with ALSA and/or my sound card: I am trying to record audio through my sound card’s line-in port (the blue one). Previously, under Windows, I would unmute [b:2k35l88r]Analog Mix[/b:2k35l88r] in the sound mixer and then I could hear and/or record the output using Audacity.

    In Antergos, I can access [b:2k35l88r]alsamixer[/b:2k35l88r] and find a slider with the label [b:2k35l88r]Analog Mix[/b:2k35l88r] but even turning the volume to 100 has no effect. I removed the PulseAudio sound server immediately after installation of Antergos if that is of any relevance.

    I have also tried this, along with changing the [b:2k35l88r]MM[/b:2k35l88r] which appears at the bottom of the sliders to [b:2k35l88r]00[/b:2k35l88r] where applicable, with [b:2k35l88r]Aux[/b:2k35l88r], [b:2k35l88r]Aux2[/b:2k35l88r], [b:2k35l88r]S/PDIF 0[/b:2k35l88r], [b:2k35l88r]CD[/b:2k35l88r], [b:2k35l88r]Line[/b:2k35l88r] and [b:2k35l88r]Line2[/b:2k35l88r], all of them just producing silence.

    I know it’s not a problem with the audio cable because I have tried the same cable in the mic input (the pink one) and received very distorted audio from it.

    Best regards and many thanks in advance

  • Hi,

    You seem to know your stuff, so please forgive me if this sounds obvious, but remember that if you’re using Gnome pulseaudio can be messing with you.

  • I’m using Xfce and the only PulseAudio package I have installed is [b:2oyfk935]libpulse[/b:2oyfk935], reason being that many of my installed applications seem to depend on it.
