External USB audio interface not working (NI Audio 4 DJ)

Hi there,

I recently got an external USB audio interface. It’s a Native Instruments Audio 4 DJ. Previous research suggested that this card is supported by ALSA (see Matrix:Module-usb-caiaq - AlsaProject).

However, Yast/Hardware/Sound doesn’t detect the card, and when I try to add it manually, there appears to be no card that uses the relevant module (snd-card-usb-caiaq).

I am a little puzzled where to go from here. I’m running openSUSE 11.1 x86-64. cat /proc/asound/cards only shows

0 [Intel ]: HDA-Intel - HDA Intel
HDA Intel at 0xfbcf8000 irq 22
HDA ATI HDMI at 0xfbefc000 irq 17

where I suppose the first entry is my onboard sound (Realtek ALC888) and the second entry something related to my ATI HD 4850 video card.

Any pointers are highly appreciated.


bump… I really don’t know how to proceed, the device shows up under lsusb but is not in /proc/asound/cards.

I saw your post, but I don’t have a USB sound device, so I can not help. Someone else will need to “chime in”. I’m just replying so you know you are not being ignored, I just do not know enough about this to want to support a thread in an area where my knowledge is too weak.

the same here on debian, with proper modules loaded, the audio4dj does not work. on the same setup tested audio8dj - immediately found in /proc/asound/cards. maybe there is something like firmware uploaded to the audio4dj on win/mac?? :frowning:
could someone help us with this please… many thanx in advance…

solved… compiled latest alsa driver from source, device works.
