Default No success with EchoAudio FireWire 12

Title: No success with EchoAudio FireWire 12



Hello,



I have recently made a fresh install of Ubuntu Studio 9.10 and tried to get it to work with my EchoAudio 12.



I have followed the instructions at Ubuntu Studio Preparation ( https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuStudioPreparation) and FireWire Audio in Ubuntu Studio ( https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FireWire) and everything checks out correctly.



However, when I try to start JACK, this is the error message I get:



21:28:44.769 Patchbay deactivated.

I have not attempted 9.10 as yet. So I have no help to offer.

I have two AF12's running fine under 9.04 (32bit) with
2.6.29.1-rt8-custom kernel (the so called Luke kernel). I was never able
to get it to run with no xruns with UBStudio with the 32 or 64 bit
UBStudio 9.04 "out of the box".

In fact, if I remember correctly, I installed 9.04 from Conanical, and
added the UBStudio package, and added the rt custom kernel.

I thought UBStudio install handled the "re-config" to the old firewire
stack, but you might verify that that indeed has been done. Others here
probably know the commands to do that off the top of their heads.

Just do.

sudo chmod 777 /dev/raw1394

And check where is your fw card, mine is in hw:1 - not hw:0!

Default No success with EchoAudio FireWire 12

Simon,
I am far from one of the experts here, so they may
have better info, but this is what I see:

jackd... is starting Jack1, I think you need to run
Jack2 for firewire, which may need to be compiled.

I run a PreSonus FireStudio 26x26 on firewire which
needs FFADO and Jack2 compiled from SVN. Echo is
supported in FFADO, but I don't know how much less
work that means you need to do.

I hope that helps,
Bob Hamil

Please - Echo is fully supported out of box with jackd 0.116.1
/FFADO in Ubuntu Studio 9.10.

Please, just do what I told to do:

sudo chmod 777 /dev/raw1394

It is really that easy, do not mess around with svn or something...

Well, I have done exactly what was written above and got the output of the various commands to exactly match what is shown above (except my 1394 card shows the Echo box on hw:0), but I’m still getting the same error. I am now completely re-installing UbuntuStudio for a fresh start tomorrow night. Will attempt to make it work “out of the box”. Very frustrated and very disappointed.

Hmm I am no expert but you said that your firewire card lists the echo
box as hw:0 but your jackd command seems to be pointing to hw:1

if you have done a fresh install you will need to re-do the sudo chmod
777 /dev/raw1394 command

good luck

I'm sorry for that. Echo AudioFire 4 works for me, I think that I just

There is more correct way to do that in Karmic.

1. Before.

asmok@ubuntu-studio:~$ ls -al /dev/raw1394
crw-rw---- 1 root root 171, 0 2009-11-28 08:53 /dev/raw1394
asmok@ubuntu-studio:~$

2. Add new file with this line in correct directory.

asmok@ubuntu-studio:~$ cat /etc/udev/rules.d/50-raw-firewire.rules
KERNEL=="raw1394", NAME="raw1394", GROUP="audio"

3. After REBOOT.

asmok@ubuntu-studio:~$ ls -al /dev/raw1394
crw-rw---- 1 root audio 171, 0 2009-11-28 09:30 /dev/raw1394

Best Regards Asmo Koskinen.



I have followed your instructions above. It didn’t help. After creating the 50-raw-firewire.rules file with GROUP=”audio” I did the ls command and still got



crw-rw---- 1 root video 171, 0 2009-11-29 21:02 /dev/raw1394



Which is what I have seen all along. I then changed the GROUP name in the 50-raw-firewire.rules file to “video” and made sure that I was a member of “video”. Still no luck. This is what is still happening:



sjelly@ubuntu-studio:~$ ls -al /dev/raw1394

crw-rw---- 1 root video 171, 0 2009-11-29 21:02 /dev/raw1394

I have found something suspicious, and 2 days ago I wrote to the ffado users mailing list with a new query. I haven’t had a satisfactory answer yet, so I will raise it here. When I ran ffado-test Discover command I got the following output:

But now we come to what might be the interesting part - at least it

appears to be an error message to one who is ignorant such as myself:

There are some read failure messages at the top of the output. I don’t know how significant these are. What I thought was more alarming were these lines:

02452648553: Error (fireworks_device.cpp)[ 175] discoverUsingEFC: Firmware

version 2.0 (rev 1536) not recent enough. FFADO requires at least version

02452648572: Error (devicemanager.cpp)[ 606] discover: could not discover

That sounds kind of fatal to me. What firmware is being referred to here? I got the same message when using a VIA chipset-based 1394 controller card and I’ve since replaced it with a TI chipset card. Same error. Is it my Echo AudioFire12 firmware that needs to be updated? I plugged this Echo 12 into my iMac with Tracktion and there was no automatic firmware update initiated.



Any clues? Is this significant or a red herring?
