1. - so i removed pulseaudio, then installed jack for music editing.
but now i can't listen to anything from my browser (iceweasel)!
(it works when i quit qjackctl & killall jackd)
is there any jack support for browser plugins?
2. - i have a mic input and a line input on the front of my laptop and would like to use them with jack to record. is that possible?
i usually wait 24h before bumping but i'm getting a bit desperate here, esp. with the 2nd question.
i can hear the line/mic input through my speakers, but i can't hook it up withh jackaudio.
i guess it's going straight through alsa...
If you're trying to listen to youtube videos or something that uses flash, then you'll likely need libflashsupport-jack. This guide is a bit old but it will probably still work: http://jackaudio.org/routing_flash
Be aware that by setting this up, flash output will always attempt to output through jack, and will start up the jack daemon if it is not already present. I usually just start up jack when I'm using music editing software, and use ALSA or pulse otherwise. But if you really want flash output routing to JACK, there you go.
Alsa should work with the same deivces that work with Pulseaudio, so not sure what's happening.
Can you post the output of
get a preamp, not free but hay... i would just kill jack when using iceweasel. In regards to prpduction, id recommend turning off networking as well. Ardour and Audacity would be a good place for the recording side. Sorry if this wasnt what you were looking for.
thanx all. for the browser part i found -this- which works well enough for me.
for the mic in / line in problem, i'm not sure if that same alsa routing helped, or this:
playing around with xfce4-mixer, there's some capture settings with a red "record" button. that has to be pressed. i think alsa remembers this setting. now i can use the capture input in qjackctl/connections hook up to playback or some other app.
@junkie: yes i agree about the preamp. a nice low budget (?) solution is to use one of those little guitar distortion boxes. works as a preamp even if it's not "on".
apart from that, for the work in progress (creative process) i need the browser. i do not work in a classical studio setup (using my computer to record handmade music). later (much later), when it comes to mastering, it's probably better to kill off all distractions.
ps: libflashsupport-jack seems to be dead.
