Two sound cards + camera with microphone


Recommended Posts

It often happens as we need two sound cards, one for listening to 6 speakers and one for chat in Skype and in addition we have a camera with microphone. In practice, the camera starts first USB audio device, or an integrated sound card. You have to deviate from the subject and warned that buying two cards that have a sound system MPU-401 or simply MIDI, joystick may not be huge problems. These devices refer to the same address, resulting in system crashes. In contrast, having a good sound card and integrated we are ready to work. Since each BIOS option is called off. Game Device is nothing less than the system MPU-401. Yes but what I do not kamerka to load first.

There should be a corresponding entry in /etc/modprobe.conf and the matter resolved.

Of course, Server, and enable enhanced Pulse modprobe.conf file

This is just an example of the audio



options snd-via82xx index = 0

options snd-emu10k1 index = 1

options snd-usb-audio index = 2


alias snd-0 snd-via82xx

alias snd-1 snd-emu10k1

alias snd-2 snd-usb-audio



alias sound-slot-0 snd-via82xx

alias sound-slot-1 snd-emu10k1

alias sound-slot-2 snd-usb-audio


remove snd-via82xx / sbin / modprobe - first-time-r - ignore-remove snd-via82xx

install snd-via82xx / sbin / modprobe - first-time - ignore-install snd-via82xx

remove snd-emu10k1 / sbin / modprobe - first-time-r - ignore-remove snd-emu10k1

install snd-emu10k1 / sbin / modprobe - first-time - ignore-install snd-emu10k1


After this configuration, the integrated set to work on channel 6, because I have the SBLive! 1024 Player, which is a 4 channel devoted to Skype. Why. Skype requires devices operating on a full-dupplex, and this card is ideally suited to this. VIA but serves only as a player, a microphone from the camera can be switched off. If in addition we have the TV, connect it to the VIA card or VIA AUX-CD on the motherboard. If someone uses a mixer alsamixer will have to play

alsamixer-c 0

alsamixer-c 1

alsamixer-c 2


It is possible to connect four audio device but earlier use the files in the directory / etc / modprobe.d / blacklist *
