USB audio device - Error: parse_audio_format_rates_v2(): unable to retrieve number of sample rates

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]



Hello all,

I would like to ask for some help with an USB audio class 2 device.

The device is an effects processor called Fractal Audio Systems Axe-Fx II. It has the ability to work as a MIDI and also as an audio interface. As an audio interface it should provide 4 channels with the direction Axe-Fx II => PC and 2 channels from PC => Axe-FX II. The Axe-Fx II exclusively works with a fixed sample rate of 48kHz and a bit rate of 24bit.

lsusb -v reports the following for this device:

I am running openSUSE 11.4, 64bit (Kernel 2.6.37-0.11 desktop). ALSA version is 1.0.24 according to YAST but alsamixer reports driver version 1.0.23.

When I connect the Axe-Fx II to my systems the MIDI interface appears and works. Problem is the audio interface. /var/log/messages reports

ALSA format.c:287: parse_audio_format_rates_v2(): unable to retrieve number of sample rates (clock 40)
ALSA format.c:287: parse_audio_format_rates_v2(): unable to retrieve number of sample rates (clock 5)

and no capture or playback device can be found.

I emailed the manufacturer and they told me that the Axe-Fx II does not respond to GetSampleFrequencyRange requests. So I suspect this might be the reason for the error messages.

Any help is highly appreciated.

Regards,

Joachim
