XK-AUDIO-316-MC-AB analog input doesn't work

Post by Zetika »

I started to test the XK-AUDIO-316-MC-AB. I build app_usb_aud_xk_316_mc 1AMi2o2xxxxxx and set the jumpers for i2S. Analoge output is working but It doesn't send audio to the PC. Any idea? I am building with xtools 15.2.1 and app_usb_aud_xk_316_mc is version 8.1.0.

Thank you.

how did you setup the jumpers?

did you try the precompiled images?

mine is working fine

Thank you.
I upoload the picture with the jumpers.
I only downloaded code from https://www.xmos.com/develop/usb-multichannel-audio/ and built it.

Do you have any more details on your exact test setup?

When you say no audio from mic how are you providing a signal to the line input? Are you playing an output at the same time and using the loopback cable? Is your loopback cable definitely a stereo TRS jack cable? (I noted it has a mic symbol on it). What OS and software are you using to test?

If you want to test the hardware you can run the attached binary with the command: xrun --xscope analogue_loopback.xe
analogue_loopback.zip
This test plays a tone out of all analogue outputs and looks for signals on all analogue inputs and reports their level. For your setup with a single loopback cable from out 1/2 to in 1/2 you should get an output like this:

I tested with a loopback cable and it works.

But when a plugin a headphone stereo microphone no signal is received:

I don't understand why.

Hi,

The IN 1/2 connector is designed for stereo line level signals. It is a TRS jack where TIP = left channel, RING = right channel, SLEEVE = ground. It is not compatible with headsets with microphones if this is what you are using for test?

If you want to test the input in a different way you could connect a phone or ipod or similar directly to the IN 1/2 connector.

It is clear. Thank you very much.
