Raspberry Pi Pulse Audio

Hello, I have noticed there is not a way to start Jack server after Raspbian Update in December 2020. I think the default audio server is now PuseAudio

Is there a way to fix this and make SC to work on this platform?

For anyone interested, it seems that things work with an external interface and manual configuration of Jack


@maronid can you share you jack configurations that made it work?

Hi and sorry for the delay. In my case this is the config

/usr/bin/jackd -dalsa -dhw:Device -r44100 -p1024 -n3

but it might be slightly different for you. Maybe the best is to use qjackctl and then just select your external usb sound card. Mind to boot Jack before SC.

Also mind that things work very well with Ubuntu Mate Distribution so maybe it is worth giving it a try

I hope this is helpful for you

Also check out the Raspberry Pi readme in the repos - it has some good tips and tricks. supercollider/README_RASPBERRY_PI.md at develop · supercollider/supercollider · GitHub
