I just mailed this little test.

Any change to get both libffado (rc2) and jackd (166.2) to the PPA for 
Ubuntu Studio-dev?

Best Regards Asmo Koskinen.

Studio 8.04 x86_64. Everyhting else is from package
management/repositories expect libffado and jackd.

4. I did my quick test again. Garbage out (Delta 66/VLC) - garbage in
(Phantom microphone/AudioFire4/Ardour2). I recorded about 10 minutes, no


Both devices works very well together.


You need this fix for ffado-mixer (to use phantom microphone) when
building in Hardy.

"FFADO should compile well, but the mixer might not : if you get a
message telling that 'pyuic', and python-modules 'dbus' and 'qt' could
not be found, here is how you can work around this issue"


6. After that I did one midi test (midi keyboard) for jackd, no
problems. Upgrading manually from source packages did not mess anything.


@Pieter, what is ypur schedule for libffado, how many RCs before final
one etc? It is ready, when it is ready  - old fashion way ;-)

@Pieter, is there a way activate phantom microphone from cli?

@Someone else, there is that "PPA for Ubuntu Studio-dev". Is it possible
to get both libffado (rc2) and jackd (116.2) there?

Thank you Peter once again, I can now use AudioFire4 everywhere and with
both Ubuntu Studios - 8.04/9.04.
