Answer to myself: I don't know why, but opening sound settings and running sound test for left and right speaker enabled the sounds again. Sigh.. Still no sound with Renoise.

Solved! Finally, googling around for ideas and hints I figured it out how to optimize volume levels settings manually (e.g. pcm) I had to edit alsa-mixer configuration file for analog output: sudo gedit /usr/share/pulseaudio/alsa-mixer/paths/analog-output.conf.common there be: [Element PCM] switch = mute volume = merge override-map.1 = all override-map.2 ...

I experienced a similar problem. In my case speech-dispatcher was not installed, but that doesn't seem to be the case for you. I recommend running: sudo apt-get install alsa-base alsa-utils alsa-tools libasound2 libasound2-plugins this will ensure that all the necessary packages are installed. Follow this with: sudo alsa force-reload to reload your alsa ...

I did the following to disable the external microphone temporarily: install and run Pulse audio control (pavucontrol); go to Input Devices; mute "Microphone"; unmute and raise the volume of "Internal microphone".

That was not the whole problem as I see now. You see, after the re-installation of the alsa drivers, there was no 'sound indicator' in the system tray. I tried to access system options but... there were only some of them, like here. I needed to re-install the unity-control-center and that did the trick. Finally, Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! ;-) Could you ...

As discussed in What does USB DAC "Analog Output" mean?, I suspect that Analog Output means that the OS will first pass the digital stream to the inbuilt, computer DAC device (i.e. sound card), and then the analog stream will be passed on to the USB device for amplification and further to your headphones/speakers. The improvement in quality (versus ...

Analog Output means that the OS will first pass the digital stream to the inbuilt, computer DAC device (i.e. sound card), and then the analog stream will be passed on to the USB device for amplification and further to your headphones/speakers. The improvement in quality (versus the computer DAC) will be minimal, and will come only from the external DAC ...

They say that this is fixed in kernel 3.16 and can be installed like this in Ubuntu 14.04 at least: sudo apt-get install linux-generic-lts-utopic This seems to be another issue with the power management of the soundchip, the guide on xps13-9333.appspot.com suggests to disable power management for Intel HDA on older kernels and to run a certain python ...

.asoundrc is not created by default. This file is only used to add user-specific parameters as you want to do now. So yes, you can create it manually. You can find more info in the ALSA project wiki.

It was a matter of adding the live user created on boot to the audio group, it was in one of the casper scripts, I'm not sure which one, but a google search for adding the casper live user to a group should put you in the right direction EDIT: Sorry, its a simple fix, I was just in a hurry when I responded in the unpacked rootfs of the live system, you ...

I solved this on a minimal xubu desktop by doing this: install 'qasmixer' then go into the menu and choose 'Settings > Sessions and Startup > Application Autostart > Add' and name it whatever (ie Volume Control) then for the command type in: qasmixer --tray then reboot.

[SOLVED]: It was necessary to UNmute line-in, then make alsactl store, and then restore can be used.

Solved! Thanks to CL, above. The key to what I was doing was the persistent change: $ sudo vi /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf Then, at the bottom of the text file, comment out the line that says options snd-usb-audio index=-2 Then, after a reboot (or a force-reload of alsa, probably), pavucontrol lists the device normally. The above edit is ...

While sudo alsactl store 0 stores the settings for card 0 you have to issue a sudo alsactl restore 0 to restore those saved settings. If you leave the card number off all cards will be affected. Source: and further information man alsactl

I've followed the Jason B's answer and it worked. But i also added code for it to show the volume notification, as it's the default behaviour in ubuntu 14.04. Here's what's to add at the end of the files: tmp1=$(amixer get Master | grep dB | sed 's/\(^[a-z0-9 :]\+\[\|\[\|\]\)//gi') tmp2=(${tmp1//\ / }) tmp3=(${tmp2//\%/ }) notify-send hi -i ...

So, I just set the environment variable XDG_RUNTIME_DIR the same as in my working shells, and it works. I found this page because I had this same issue with trying to get sound to play from cron jobs -- mpg123 seeming to think it plays the file fine, but with no audio. Setting that variable fixed it.

PulseAudio basically sits atop ALSA, and use it internally. ALSA is unable by itself to be used by multiple applications, so PulseAudio provides this functionality among others. Summarized: ALSA - dealing with the hardware, basically owning it PulseAudio - a software proxy providing additional featues (mixing, equalizer) between your application and the ...

Cycling power to the TV fixes the problem. Cycling power on the computer with the TV on causes the problem. I think this is just HDMI being it's crappy self.

Have you tried selecting the output device in the sound settings menu from default to HDMI? I had to do this while watching a movie! Hope this helps. Thanks
