[RDD] Getting M-Audio Delta 1010 to work

Hi Michael,

You can use the computer's serial or parallel port interface if you are
willing to build the hardware that will operate your devices from the serial
or parallel port signals.  If you are interested, I can send you the
information.  Several people have used this approach and I have planned to
put it on the Wiki, but it hasn't made it there yet.

Does M-Audio support any version of Linux?  I'd recommend going with a Linux
version that has drivers for M-Audio, then install Rivendell on that
version.  Rivendell was written to support SuSE, latest version 10.2,
although Novell has recently released a newer version.

Hi There,

I wrote a few months back, while I was trying to get Rivendell
compiled on an old PPC. I eventually gave that up after it couldn't
handle one more reboot.

I've since been able to acquire a brand new Dell workstation that is
destined to be a Rivendell-only box. Before I start cluttering it up
though, I want to make sure that I can get the soundcard properly

I'm running Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy) and have an M-Audio Delta 1010
Installed. JACK appears to see the card and can start-up. However when
I test the sound card using the Ubuntu "Sound" Preference application
I can only successfully test playback; every time I try to test
"capture" I get the same error that tells me that gconf is failing to
construct a pipe. I get the same error when trying to test the Intel
pre-installed sound card. So as far as I can tell this is system error
or config file problem somewhere. But as I'm new to Sound under Linux
this is mostly new to me.

A few other general questions. What is the best and most affordable
switcher to get that can interface with Rivendell? Is there a
Broadcast Tools model? Does anything interface via USB or is it all

Also, are there any Rivendell users in Portland, OR? I run a college
station here in town and just met with most of the other major college
stations today. None of them are happy with their automation set-up.
It seems like it would be a good idea to get everyone set-up with
Rivendell, but we need somewhere to start.

Thanks for the help!

All the Best,
