Or You could use a dual boot, that way you would have two systems but completely independent and with full performances on booth.

You could do a virtual machine, but aside from that it's impossible without Wine.

Stop jackd when you don't use it using qjackctl graphical interface : just click "stop" to exit jackd To mute the direct mic/line input sound you ear, run alsamixer in a terminal . Use arrow left/right keys to select "mic" or "line" fader, then use down arrow key to lower the volume (or M to mute). This will not affect the recorded sound level. You may ...

What I ended up doing: For whatever reason Linux/Ubuntu did want to to recognize the keyboard as an audio/mic source. This isn't exactly a problem, it was more of a last resort. I only tried to get it to work because the jacks on my laptop are broken, and will not accept input or output (purely hardware, nothing to do with Ubuntu). I used to use an external ...

Depending on the application, it might be possible to disable ALSA support so that it instead uses Pulseaudio directly. For example I have an OpenAL game which shows this problem. I edited /etc/openal/alsoft.conf and added the line drivers = pulse, so that OpenAL will always use Pulseaudio rather than checking for ALSA, OSS or other audio frameworks. Since ...

Alsa doesn't like only having USB audio and nothing else. In /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf, comment out this line: options snd-usb-audio index=-2

You mentioned having played Pathwind; did you by any chance mute the sound in Pathwind? There's a known bug whereby muting the sound in Pathwind mutes the sound for the rest of the system as well -- this can be fixed by just relaunching Pathwind and unmuting the sound.

Make sure that pulseaudio is in the audio group: sudo addgroup pulse audio sudo service pulseaudio restart

It is going to vary with hardware and my guess is that you need 2 separate sound cards or a sound card / mixer capable of such separation. You can then configure pulseausio to send output to specific locations / cards with pavucontrol , in the playback tab One may need to install pavucontrol , either with apt-get or from the software center. sudo ...

You've a speaker icon on the screen probably near the clock. That location is dependent on the desktop you use. Click on that icon and a popup will show with sliders in it. Check the setting of the sliders. If they're all up then there's something wrong with your audio settings and then we'll have to look at those.

I don't like Rhythmbox. I use Banshee instead (which comes as the default on Linux Mint and, as far as I'm concerned, should come as the default on Ubuntu). Banshee has a similar appearance to Rhythmbox, but I find that it runs smoother and better. You can find it in the Ubuntu Software Center by simply searching Banshee. Then, to remove Rhythmbox, you ...

The Windows Media Player itself can be made to work but is not a good fit for Ubuntu. As I don't like rhythmbox neither, so I just use VLC player to play all of my media. The advantage of VLC (for me, might be a disadvantage to you) is that it doesn't contain a media library at all! To remove rhythmbox and install VLC player: sudo apt-get purge ...

I was finally able to solve this one. I just had to go in the configuration panel of the volume control box: Under the "Audio Interno" (Internal Audio in english, I suppose) option, where now there is "Spento" (shut off) for some reason there was "Digital Stereo HDMI". I just jad to shut it off, and now everything works perfectly. Thanks @mchid for all ...

I might not be who is going to answer this, but I do know where to begin to look for what is going on. We need more information to know why your audio isn't working. First of all, why have you installed Ubuntu 15.04? Are you trying to get help with a problem or report a bug? 15.04 is probably full of bugs, but this isn't where to report them.... If ...

Okay I seem to have solved my issue. I imported the certificate I had from windows and people were able to hear me again. I have no idea why the newer certificate caused this but I guess it doesn't matter as long as the older one doesn't.

This is an old question, but I had the same problem and after some Googling (where I mostly found people who agreed it wasn't possible) and reading some man pages, I have now developed a solution based on user2330377's idea. First you need to create a noise profile for SoX. Just use any audio recording program to record a few seconds of noise, then cd into ...

The old 8-Bit stuff is characterized by subtractive synthesis based on the waveform "square", with addition of envelopes and filters. You can try using Amsynth to create the typical 8-Bit sound Wiki - Linux Audio Software An example of how to program such sounds (different software, same principle) can be found here

What you probably want is a tracker, to organize, create, and modify sounds. Here are some sources I like milkytracker, which takes a little getting used to. its interface isn't what I would call intuitive, but it has some neat features, like being able to draw the sound you want to make. There are numerous online tutorials as well. ...

From what I can tell, that is the sound of your speakers "activating". It happens on all of my computers, heck, it happens on ALL computers. So, you can't really remove that sound, but I may be wrong.

It's not just you! The update broke my sound too, Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS (64-bit), Dell Optiplex 760. But I got it fixed. Try these menus: System Tools ... Preferences ... Sound, and make sure your sound isn't muted or turned all the way down. That's what seemed to work for me. The "speaker-test" utility worked for me (e.g., it could produce sound), so then I ...

I run into this sometimes, where certain media plays softer or louder than other media. The simple fix I use is to open up the Sound Settings and set it to higher than 100% manually (you may have to click "Allow Louder than 100%" to do this, depending where you access the volume settings from). I find that when I push the volume louder than 100%, videos ...

You can change the system alerts sound level by this way: Go to the "gear cog" in the upper right corner of the screen. Select System settings... Click on Sound. Click on the Sound Effects tab. Lower the Alert volume to a comfortable level (or mute it). Here you're a screenshot:

The solution by Takkat was not working for me, here is my solution for anyone still having a problem with this. There were two issues for me with the solution by Takkat.

You can use gsettings from the terminal.

I've found that sometimes running mv ~/.config/pulse/ ~/.config/pulse.old/ in a terminal followed by logging out & in fixes things (this backs up, deletes & resets the configuration for pulseaudio, the program that manages sound on Ubuntu).

You can reset all the pulseaudio User Configuration rm - rf .config/pulse; pulseaudio -k This file is known to get corrupted, and you said you did an upgrade so this seem plausible.

I have had this issue with my audio volume resetting to 100% after reboot ever since I started using Linux two years ago. Basically the advice given above by GigabyteProductions is leading me to the right place, and it should really be working, but it isn't working on my system. So I had to look a little further, and I have learnt a great deal, albeit not ...

I recently started having the same issue. I dual boot Windows 7 and Ubuntu 14.04. The issue seems to have started after Windows update installed a new Realtek HD Audio driver.

There is a known fix for this issue, but it does not mention the Dragonfly specifically, so I had a really hard time finding it too. Basically what you need to do is edit a line in the /etc/pulse/default.pa file.
