Hi Mac,Are you by any chance using a USB audio interface?I get a dummy device in PA control if my USB audio device is not switched on before boot up (or at least before login). I have to restart with it switched on and then everything is fine.Chris

And I now have a working desktop on 19.04. No errors, smooth upgrade. Sound works as before. Cool!But (you knew there was a but, right?), did the same on my laptop, no errors. But, no audio devices, the PA Volume control shows only a dummy device on the Output Devices (though, I get an AudioIPC Server on the Playback tab when I play from say YouTube in a browser and it shows sound.) JACK won't start, UBS Controls does not complain about anything.Audio worked fine with with 18.04 and the UBS Controls backport...Where do I look for clues?MacOn Thu, Jun 6, 2019 at 5:13 PM Erich Eickmeyer <eeickmeyer at ubuntu.com> wrote:Updates for June 2019
 hope that Ubuntu Studio 19.04’s release has been a welcome update for 
our users. As such, we are continuing our work on Ubuntu Studio with our
 next release scheduled for October 17, 2019, codenamed “Eoan Ermine”.

Bug Fix for Ubuntu Studio Controls

 bug identified in which the ALSA-Jack MIDI bridge was not surviving a 
reboot was fixed and updated in Ubuntu 19.04. As such, please make sure 
all of your packages are up-to-date.

New Features Coming to Ubuntu Studio Controls

We have already done a lot of work to Ubuntu Studio Controls for 19.10, and as such we have several new features already landing:

Multiple PulseAudio Bridges (for routing of individual applications)In-Window Jack Status IndicatorDSP Usage MeterQuick-links to QASMixer, Carla, and PulseAudio Control

 features are currently available in Eoan Ermine’s daily ISO images. 
After we have determined there has been sufficient testing (or 19.10 is 
released, whichever comes first), we will backport this version of 
Ubuntu Studio Controls to our backports PPA.

LSP-Plugins Coming to Ubuntu Studio 19.10

The Linux Studio Plugins Project
 is a collection of  91 Ladspa, LV2, and VST audio plugins compatible 
with Carla, Ardour, and other DAWs. These plugins are to be included by 
default in Ubuntu Studio 19.10, and are currently available in the Backports PPA for 18.04, 18.10, and 19.04. If you feel as though Ubuntu Studio is lacking in audio plugins, this should no longer be the case.

For a full list of plugins available, check out the official documentation.

Other Items in the Backports PPA

 ubuntustudio-gnome-branding from ubuntustudio-installer as people 
without the default GNOME Ubuntu were installing it, undesirably 
pulling-in GNOME packages.The
 default wallpaper for 19.04 was slightly “fixed” and is available to 
18.04 and 18.10 in the “ubuntustudio-disco-wallpapers” package, along 
with a version without the Ubuntu Studio logo in the lower-right corner.An updated package of the Calf Studio Gear plugins to 0.90.2 for 18.04, 18.10, and 19.04

Ubuntu Studio 18.10 END-OF-LIFE Coming on July 18th, 2019

If you have not already upgraded from Ubuntu Studio 18.10 to 19.04, you have just over a month left to do so
 before Ubuntu Studio 18.10 reaches End-Of-Life and will no longer be 
supported. Ubuntu 18.10 and all official flavors reach End-Of-Life on July 18, 2019. Mark your calendar and upgrade as soon as possible!

Upgrading is available via the Software Updater and the command line “do-release-upgrade” tool.

If you have added the Backports PPA, please install and run ppa-purge tool before upgrading for the best upgrade experience:

sudo apt install ppa-purgesudo ppa-purge ppa:ubuntustudio-ppa/backports--
