What sort of "digital audio from the motherboard" are you referring to: streaming audio from the web, audio from optical disks or files, motherboard beeps, or something else?

If is almost certainly possible, but more information about what you want to do would lead to better answers.

Hallo, diode84.

Recording audio, eh? Mm; shouldn't be a problem. There's several built-in options you can use, for starters.....and then there's other packages available for this. Multimedia stuff Puppy is not short of..!

Menu->Multimedia. There's Bacon Recorder; there's pRecord.....and there's mhWaveEdit, which also allows editing of audio tracks. For your purposes, the simplest option will be Bacon Recorder; it's got a very simple GUI, and is easy to understand. It's maintained by Puppy forum member don570, who regularly updates this. If you want to upgrade to the newest version, you can find it here:-

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=69237

Just download, and click to install. It will install over the top of the built-in version.

Hope that helps.


Mike.

I don't know much about Puppy. If it uses Pulse Audio, you should install pavucontrol (the Pulse Audio mixer) and check the settings. It is much more versatile than the most "volume control" applications.

If Puppy doesn't use Pulse, you may want to take a look at jack. You can use it to "jack" various virtual outputs into various inputs.

^ those are the software solutions.
it is also possible (at least i have done so succesfully) to route the line out to the line in with a cable.
with some adjustments, it records in usable (maybe not audiophile though) quality.

Thanks ondoho
As its a laptop there are not enough sockets to do this. I could buy an external sound card but am loosing confidence that with my linux abilities its posible for me. I did also want audiophile quality too.

I might consider using Audacity. It has a way to passthough to record. If I understand the question correctly.

Hello jefro
I never did exactly understand what passthrough means, any chance of a very brief explanation.
I want to record digital before its converted to analogue.

please, do this:

find out if your distro uses pulseaudio.
if it does, explore pulseaudio's possibilities to do what you want.
if it doesn't, either install pulseaudio or the previously mentioned jack audio.
i now 100% that what you want is possible with jackaudio. meaning digital recording of digital ouput.

@ondoho:-

I can tell you for definite now that Tahr does not use PulseAudio. No Puppy, to the best of my knowledge, ever has used it in default condition. The only 'Pups' that do, and which are not 'true' Puppies, are the DebianDogs....and these are based on the Debian LiveCD, customized to look and act like a Puppy. They are more truly Debian than Puppy, as they use Synaptic, apt-get, sudo, and all the rest of the 'traditional' infra-structure..

To call any Pup 'Ubuntu-based' or 'Slackware-based' is only true insofar as they are built using binaries from those distros. It's true that PulseAudio can be installed if the user so wishes, though in Puppy it has a horrible tendency to introduce more problems than it solves. One single situation which, by itself, underlines just how different Puppy is to the majority of 'mainstream' distros that standardized on PulseAudio quite some time ago.

For those situations where PulseAudio is called-for by certain apps, various well-documented 'workarounds' are from time to time employed.....more often than not variants on the 'apulse' libraries.

I agree with you that Jack would do what the OP wants; there are already several packages available for it, compiled to work with the majority of 'standard' Pups.....although there is, of course, quite a learning curve involved in getting the best out of it.


Mike.

It will be digital. The computer can't really record analog like an LP record might record. It records like an MP3.

See the Audacity manual for how to record sound. Your issue is complicated by what may be available in Puppy.

It does not use pulse audio, I tried to install it but had no luck, also jack the same.
