Hello Ralf

Thank you so much for your emails.

My build after executing the command you suggested:

No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 19.04
Release: 19.04
Codename: disco

Available audio devices for playback:

*** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: HDMI [HDA ATI HDMI], device 3: HDMI 0 [HDMI 0]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 1: Generic [HD-Audio Generic], device 0: ALC3227 Analog [ALC3227
  Subdevices: 0/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0.

I tried going layer by layer as you suggested with no luck.

I am sure it wasnt an issue with audio port because same port works on
windows just fine.

I tried it on my ubuntu 18.04 live usb and the audio worked fine

Here is what I did. it wasnt exactly a fix as much as a bailout.

I reinstalled all things audio i.e pulse-audio, alsa/qas mixer, jack2, qt4
and qjacktcl, a2jmidid..

I configured pulseaudio to work with jack manually in qjacktcl and a2jmidid
for midi, verified the connections in carla. verified things work fine with
jack-only softwares like supercollider etc..

I am up and running again, although I still have no clue what caused the

Thanks a lot for your help. I hope that during the process of reinstall I
have not broken anything that I am not yet noticing.

Thanks again
