Summary: I can't get any sound to play or record through my Line 6 Studio GX audio interface, UNLESS I play (my guitar) whilst boot.

Detail: If I play my guitar while the system is booting, it'll keep working. If I don't play (but still have everything plugged in) it won't work. 9/10 times this rule applies, however sometimes it doesn't work no matter what I do. I have not fiddled with the configuration of the audio system at all, so it's all vanilla. I know the line 6 drivers are working, the little LED on top of the device is lit up green and the device is listed in Ubuntu.

Question: What's wrong? How can I fix this so I can start recording guitar?

System: Ubuntu Desktop 11.10 x64

You're providing too little information. Do you have an electric guitar connected to audio in on your sound card (as in instead of a microphone)? Or is this a USB guitar? Could this be a gamepad in the shape of a guitar (example RockBand/Guitar Hero)? If it's USB, please provide the info from lsusb. –  titaniumtux May 20 '12 at 23:30
    
@titaniumtux An electric guitar is connected to the jack input of my audio interface. Indeed, I could also put in a microphone but that is not the case. Click here for the audio interface product page. Thanks... –  Korijn May 25 '12 at 16:22
