Thanks qusp.

Also thanks to Reylands for supplying clear circuit diagram of Grundig mod. Just route clock signal from L5 instead of WS.

For sure theres someone whos using WaveIo with Linux right?:)
I have latest Ubuntu 12.04 with3.2 kernel(?) but I got no sound. I have no idea what to do, which command to type etc. For me Linux is very new system and I know nothing. Maybe someone could help me with it please? Could be on PM:)

The ALSA sound system may be muted.. There seems to be a "bug/feature" that its always muted on start up. Run alsamixer, and check the volume level. This Thread may help you [SOLVED] ALSA always on mute after startup - Ubuntu Forums

Also, check in your sound settings and confirm that the correct output device is selected..

I dont know how to run alsamixer and type other commands on console. I tried searching solution on website but doesnt work.
There is Luckit USB Audio found on sound settings - I tried both settings and no sound. i also have set sound at 100% and there is no visible mute in system.

I believe its:
First run "alsamixer" to unmute and adjust the volume for all the channels you want and then run "alsactl store" to save these settings (in /etc//etc/asound.state). "alsactl restore" is used at system startup to restore your settings.

If I recall, mute is toggled in alsamixer in each channel with the M key. We all went through it the first time using WaveIO on Linux. Google around, you will find screen shots.

You have to run it as root ( sudo alsamixer)

You don't have to be root to run alsamixer.

You need to install alsa-utils.

Afaik alsamixer/amixer are not installed by default on Ubuntu. (You shouldn't need those)

So run:

sudo apt-get -y install alsa-utils

and then


What you could do first, run

cat /proc/asound/cards


aplay -l

with those commands, you can see if the card is recognized at all.

Wave-IO should work under Ubuntu, because it's working also on an SB Touch - which also runs a Alsa.

Good luck.

I installed fresh version of Linux Mint13 on formatted SSD drive. It works instantly and I have sound, BUT I still have no Alsamixer.
I typed that command above and received info that I got alsa utils in newest version, but after typing alsamixer there is no such file???

kuba@Kuba ~ $ sudo apt-get -y install alsa-utils
[sudo] password for kuba:
Czytanie list pakietów... Gotowe
Budowanie drzewa zależności
Odczyt informacji o stanie... Gotowe
alsa-utils jest już w najnowszej wersji.
0 aktualizowanych, 0 nowo instalowanych, 0 usuwanych i 16 nieaktualizowanych.
kuba@Kuba ~ $ alsamixer
cannot open mixer: No such file or directory
kuba@Kuba ~ $

Im just afraid that I dont have bit perfect system as I heard that Pulseaudio is something bad like virus for normal purposes:) Anyone had such problem with nonexisting alsamixer at fresh installed system?
Maybe its a little OT but I think there could be many users who could have some problem after changing to Linux.
