I am usung Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and I have exactly the same problem wuth a Logitech H800 Headset. Works fine in Windows 7, unbearable cracking noise in Ubuntu. Not sure if it is hardware (probably not, since other people have the same problem) or system incompatibility (maybe Logitech and Ubuntu are simply incompatible).

I've also had this problem for several years now in all the releases of Ubuntu. @Tim, it is already reported in launchpad. Related bug report: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/443131 According to the last comment, this bug won't be fixed :( PS: This was meant to be / should have been a comment like the ones above, but apparently I need ...

...facepalm... The problem was hardware... 5m long detachable stereo cable I used for both - my speakers and my headphones. Since somebody stared it, I won't delete the question or my previous answer but be aware, it seemed to work due to mere luck.

I think these two commands should work: alsactl store (to save the state to the default config file), and later: alsactl restore

The OP posted the solution in his question: While writing this I found the solution: This command makes it easier to see what my actual output options are: pacmd list-cards | grep output\: That way of looking at the output of pacmd list-cards made me realize that the actual wording for my output is not output:hdmi-output but instead ...

You can use inotify which is a folder monitoring software: it launch a command when a file is created . Here, it will launch mp3gain . To set up : Install sudo apt-get install inotify-tools incron mp3gain edit incron.allow sudo gedit /etc/incron.allow then add your username , save , you may reboot (not sure but ...)

You can use aplay from alsa-utils package. Go Unity Control Center → Keyboard → Shortcuts → Custom Add (+) new one, name it, put command: aplay /full-path-to/audio-file.wav Set key combination you want, ex: F2

Use the ALSA sound driver, beware sometimes Linyx & Alsa start up with the sound muted!! Find the mute checkbox in soundsettings and unclick it, now sound should be playing normally!

I had the same problem and solved it by: entering alsamixer in Terminal, and moving to Auto-Mute setting in Playback View, and changing it via Up/Down Arrow from Disabled to Speaker (thanks to answers by user63889 and Ivan in the comments)

If sound is muted at alsa level (as shown using alsamixer), you can unmute editing or creating .profile file in your home, and adding these commands in it: they will be executed when session start: #!/bin/bash amixer set Digital unmute amixer set Master unmute amixer set Headphone unmute Look the faders name in alsamixer and replace if necessary ...

I think that the most detailed answer with several options can be found here: How can I extract audio from MP4 or FLV video files?

If you don't want to use the terminal and you don't have any real demands to do the job, you can always use VLC player to do this, which is probably installed in your distribution. Open VLC player. From the menu bar, please select "Media" and then "Convert/Save". Click "Add" and select your file. Click "Convert/Save". You should then select "Audio - MP3", ...

You can use ffmpeg: ffmpeg -i /PATH/TO/INPUT.mp4 /PATH/TO/OUTPUT.mp3 If it is not installed, you can install it with: sudo apt-get install ffmpeg You can find a help page on using ffmpeg here, or by running ffmpeg --help or man ffmpeg. For the above commands, you use the Terminal, which can be accessed by opening it from the dash/launcher, or by ...

From Windows , do a real shutdown (not reboot) and retest. If not ok, disable "Fast Boot" (see this answer)

Ok, so I found a solution. You should put this code: restore_alsa() { while [ -z "$(pidof pulseaudio)" ]; do sleep 0.5 done alsactl -f /var/lib/alsa/asound.state restore } restore_alsa & somewhere into the /etc/rc.local Although, if you suspend/shut-down/lock and log in again without unplugging headphones you sometimes you ...

Use audacity. Extract/rip the audio files from the CD using any program you like. Then import the stereo audio file in audacity. Use the "split stereo track" Track Control Panel, located on the left side of the track. This will break it down to two separate tracks. Then for each track open the Track Control Panel again and select mono to convert each single ...

Everything on USB is digital. "Analog Output" describes the output of the DAC. Ubuntu's sound settings are the PulseAudio layer.

You can't use the Gstreamer audiovisualizers as all of them are only creating a frame for a scope-like renderer (i.e. a video sink, such as ximagesink) Let's take the /usr/share/sounds/ubuntu/stereo/bell.ogg as a sample file. If I open this file in audacity I can see a preview of the waveform: But if I use the following pipeline: gst-launch filesrc ...

PulseAudio Equalizer and PulseAudio Volume Control are two different pieces of software. PulseAudio Volume Control will allow you to adjust input volumes so is probably what you are looking for. In a terminal type sudo apt-get install pavucontrol If that is not what you are looking for or is too basic, you could try JAMin, which is an Audio Mastering ...

PulseAudio is used on top of ALSA to manage applications use of your onboard soundcard. However, it is not preloaded in a standard Lubuntu install. To get PulseAudio open your terminal and type sudo apt-get install pavucontrol

From alsa-info your sound card codec is IDT 92HD81B1X5 . From this page HDA audio models.txt, the closest known codec is STAC92HD83 (IDT/sigmatel). From this list, you see which option you can try (more or less randomly) in the /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf file until your speakers are ok: STAC92HD83* ref Reference board hp-dv7-4000 HP ...

The driver you added to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf is for Intel soundcards. It's perfectly normal that this doesn't work on your system, because the manufacturer of the sound chip is NVidia. You computer thus disables the device: genirq: Flags mismatch irq 5. 00000080 (snd_hda_intel) vs. 00000000 (parport0) hda-intel: unable to grab IRQ 5, disabling ...

Try to reset pulseaudio configuration : rm -fr .pulse then reboot. If not better , what is this 2 commands results: pactl info|grep sink and aplay -l Do you see faders running alsamixer in a terminal ? Are main faders (master, pcm, speakers... ) unmuted (m key to mute/unmute when fader selected with arrow key)?

Audacity immediately recognized USB M-Audio with no issues, EVEN THOUGH Alsa mixer keeps on Intel internal audio card. To my knowledge alsamixer doesn't manage which application uses which interface/soundcard/output, you can only set the software controls (some may have only hardware controls and don't offer any software controls) for the devices ...

You don't say if you have sound with other software but I guess yes. Check pulseaudio doing a Skype test call while running "sound settings" and going in the "applications" tab: you should see Skype (or Mumble) with a volume setting . But it is better to install pavucontrol (pulseaudio volume setting) and look in the "playback" tab : Skype (or mumble) ...

Audacity uses ALSA. The default card is whatever card has been seen first. To change the order of the sound drivers, add the following lines at the end of /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf: options snd-usb-audio index=0 options snd-hda-intel index=1 and reboot.

Install and run pavucontrol (pulseaudio volume control), maximize its window, go to the "output devices" tab: you should see two devices: one for HDMI audio and one for main sound card : clic the green button near the device you want to use. (Closing session could be necessary) . You can also increase fader volume, and try other profiles in ...

Try running the console-based program alsamixer, and make sure nothing is muted (which is indicated by two capital M's located just above the level indicators at the bottom). Press m to toggle mute. If that doesn't help, try running alsamixer -D pulseand making sure that isn't muted either.

blueman and pulseaudio do not play well together in Ubuntu 14.04. If you want to use it, try the utopic's blueman package which has a fix.

Upgrading crouton didn't do the trick for me, until I realized you said you installed pulseaudio, so don't forget that step if you are having trouble. A simple "sudo apt-get install pulseaudio" in trusty, and with the newest crouton, and at least the my C720, you should have sound. (I did also install the restricted drivers,but not sure if that did ...

Problem is apparently related to the libavcodec/ffmpeg fork: https://github.com/cmus/cmus/issues/139 I fixed cmus by installing libswresample-dev and the rest of the ffmpeg dev libs from this PPA (replacing the libavcodec libs): https://launchpad.net/~jon-severinsson/+archive/ubuntu/ffmpeg Then ./configure CONFIG_FFMPEG=y to make sure that ffmpeg.c works ...

In pavucontrol , "setting" tab, test various profile , as "surround" mode is enabled (as shown in the alsa-info) . If no success, test directly alsa audio layer running in a terminal speaker-test -c 2 -D plughw:0,0 or speaker-test -c 2 -D plughw:0,1 if your hear noise, it means that pulseaudio is the problem, in which case a further test would be to ...

The easiest way is to use a usb headphone (or a 5$ usb audio device to plug your headphone) , and to select this usb sound device for deck2 in Mixxx sound preferences . Another way is more difficult and depends on your soundcard: First, run "alsamixer " in a maximized terminal , and search if you have a fader called "independant" (the name is under the ...

I had a similar problem, since I couldn´t find an answer for my problem I started synaptic and erased "alsa-base" and "alsa-utils". Reboot, no background sound anymore. Heaven. Hope it works

Thanks Diesel. It worked flawlessly for me. Just few additions for newbies like me. :) open terminal and type sudo chmod 7777 /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf By default, alsa config file is read only. You will have to change it. open file using gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf Add new line at the end of file. snd-hda-intel model=generic Restart ...

Pulseaudio is probably the problem on a slow pc. You can try to disable it, as most audio software can use directly alsa audio layer . Copy and run these 2 commands in a terminal: mkdir ~/.pulse echo autospawn=no > ~/.pulse/client.conf then reopen session (or reboot) and test. The sound applet will be disabled but you can install and use ...

Ok, so I found the issue. There were some driver artifacts left behind during the upgrade in the .default stopping pulse audio from working correctly. When I removed them, everything started to work normally.

JACK Properties Sample Rate, Buffer Size and Periods/Buffer determine the base JACK latency. Their default values of 48000, 1024 and 2 respectively should work with most devices but a latency over 10ms is not usually considered good enough to be called realtime. Anyone interested in multitrack recording may wish to experiment with these ...

It's possibly your audio interface going into power save. If following commands clear the issue until you reboot or change the power supply it has got something to do with power save: echo 0 > /sys/module/snd_hda_intel/parameters/power_save_controller echo 0 > /sys/module/snd_hda_intel/parameters/power_save

I had the same issue. I believe it is the noise that your microphone picks up. Go into Sound Settings, under the Input tab, check Mute box near Settings for <microphone_name> Microphone (Not the Mute checkbox at the top). That should do the trick.

Assuming that you mean headset (if you mean headphones you will require a microphone), first I would check that the headset is working on a different device. In my experience a lot of cheap headsets break very easily. If it doesn't work on another device then it is definitely going to be a hardware problem with the headset. Next you need to check that the ...
