I've been using an AKG Perception 120 USB on Ubuntu 17.04 and 16.04. Two weeks ago I installed a fresh version of Ubuntu 18.04. Ever since the USB mic is not working. It is not listed in the audio-settings, neither is it detected by alsa.

Here is the output of dmesg after I pull the USB out and put it in again:

[10035.386439] usb 2-1.5.1: new full-speed USB device number 16 using ehci-pci
[10035.501225] usb 2-1.5.1: New USB device found, idVendor=074d, idProduct=3556

[10035.921624] retire_capture_urb: 6 callbacks suppressed
[10035.930492] usb 2-1.5.1: USB disconnect, device number 16

I'd appreciate any hints. Thanks a lot!

  • "USB disconnect" means that the device chose to disconnect. Apparently, its firmware cannot handle what Linux tries to do. I am not aware of any relevant changes in the USB audio driver; this is probably PulseAudio doing something different. (According to some reviews, it does not work very well in Windows 10, and does not handle sample rate switching correctly.) – CL. Jun 3 '18 at 20:22

There was an issue with the USB cable connecting the Microphone to my machine.

AKG Perception 120's seems to still work fine under Ubuntu 18.04.
