Since I began using Ardour
to record music
, (and more music
), I've always managed to have the same problem crop up, year after year. The symptoms of this problem are annoying to say the least.
I'm running all my audio through an M-Audio 1010 digital interface and I use envy24control to monitor and adjust the channels via. software. I also have an 8-channel pre-amp, but that's not involved in the problem.
The symptom is simple:
When I try to record something, as soon as the record button is pressed, the software mixer jumps from digital mix to PCM-1 and PCM-2, thus making it impossible for me to hear anything previously recorded, until I change it back - and since the recording has already begun, well... you see the problem.
Well... I found a solution here
after just a bit of googling, and it was, as usual, very simple.
The answer is to turn off all hardware monitoring in qjackctl and ardour.
I went home for lunch and verified that it works like a charm.
