I’m a recent owner of a new Beaglebone Black which I bought mainly to use as an embedded audio fx box. My Linux experience is limited but I have done a thing or two with it in the past.
I’d like to use the BBB together with an usb audio interface to get high quality audio i/o. I also need jackd to interface with my software (SuperCollider).
I’ve updated the Angstrom distro on the internal flash to the newest version and I also have the new Debian image on an sd card.
I was thinking Debian might be the better choice for my purpose, but the latest Wheezy image for BB hadn’t even Alsa preinstalled, so I did
sudo apt-get install alsa-base alsa-utils
but aplay -l gives me
“aplay: device_list:252: no soundcards found…”
even after a reboot. My card does show up though in /proc/asound/cards
Do I have to configure something? I couldn’t find much useful information on G****
Thanks a lot in advance,
