I'm trying to record sound from my piano which only has 'headphones' audio output (as well as loudspeakers), so there is no USB for things like MIDI. Thus I connect the piano to my computer using a double jack cable.
I tried to record with Audacity, but I'm not able to get any sound to my computer through the jack cable : at first I only had pulse (and default) as input sources.
pulseaudio-module-jack but that didn't help. Then I installed Ardour5 (that doesn't work at all, but that's not the point of this question) which automatically installed
qjackctl, but the only way I found to launch JACK was to change the default configuration : I had to change the Input and Output devices from
So now I can select
JACK Audio Connection Kit instead of
ALSA in Audacity, but the input sources either are
system, which gives nothing else than the built-in microphone output, or
PulseAudio JACK Sink, which doesn't work at all (Audacity only shows a flat line).
Is there something wrong with how I configured qjackctl ? Or is there any other tool to record audio from the jack ?
- I tried this, but without success ;
- I'm talking here about inputs shown in Audacity, but I checked the Input section under Settings > Sound, as well as PulseAudio Volume Control, there were no other sources.
