Boot Camp Low Audio Level Through 3.5mm Audio Jack

Description:

When using the 3.5mm audio output while booted into Windows 10, audio is barely audible at max volume; built-in speakers work perfectly. That is, the volume is very soft when my headphones are plugged in. Windows partition installed through Boot Camp Assistant.

Device: 2018 15″ MacBook Pro, Vega 20 GPU.

OS: Tested on Windows 10 1809 AND 1903 (Both fully updated)

Boot Camp Assistant Version: 6.1.0 (6067.230.4)

What I Have Tried:

  • Clean install Windows 10 1809 and 1903
  • Enable and disable Windows Sonic For Headphones
  • Cannot disable audio Enhancements (the tab is missing for some reason)
  • Reinstall Mojave
  • Reinstall Windows Support Software

Observation:

Cirrus audio driver does not seem to be installed, but rather Apple Audio Driver. I am assuming this is normal?

Comments:

Is this a driver issue or a “me” issue. Headphone audio level is normal while using macOS Mojave. Windows 10 installation went smoothly and was uneventful. I did not have this problem on my 2015 15″ MacBook Pro.

Why does audio get unplugged during suspend? Physically it remains plugged in and requires a replug to work

Available changes from no to unknown

Before replugging, in pavucontrol under Output Devices, the HD Audio Controller only shows Digital Output. After replugging it will show Line out (plugged in) correctly.

Before replugging, in pavucontrol under Configuration, under HD Audio Controller, choosing Analog Stereo Duplex (Unplugged) will output sound. However the hotkeys for volume up/down in Ubuntu will control HDMI/monitor sound only.


Experiencing this on Ubuntu 18.04, 18.10, and 19.04 with the same mobo, ASUS Prime X370-Pro AMD Ryzen.

My keyboard becomes unresponsive when i play audio

So i just installed Ubuntu and i’m noticing that whenever audio is playing through my headphones the keyboard just stops doing anything. The lights on it are still on it just doesn’t type for a few minutes. I’ve figured out that if the audio is playing through my monitor’s built in speaker nothing happens, only my headphones, and i’ve updated my keyboard drivers several times.

How to fix audio in ubuntu

Just uninstalled windows and got myself Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS. Fortunately ATI had released amdgpu-pro-19.20 (12.06.2019), and it installed even without ending up with black-screened-brick (as it previously usually was). So OS became at least usable, and OpenCL could work. But here came the problem. I wanted to watch a movie, and virtually “ran into a wall”.

  • My motherboard’s audio card is broken, so no output is possible from it. It’s my h/w Issue – that realtek HDA is just unusable in any OS.. that’s old story.

  • In Windows times I had to use my EMU-1212m pcie card. On the Creative website, there was a “2-clicks installer”, and a couple of minutes. And that separated you from going 24bps@192khz. Seems Ubuntu cannot do this (without a beardy geek near a PC) – I simply cannot see card in Ubuntu audio settings UI, neither simple installation script, to make it appear in there. So I cannot use good sound card, it’s non-doable in 5 minutes, but rather some “insane” process of “manually patching emu10k1 driver” and “building linux kernels/firmwares/..” Hey, I am not a Gentoo user!)

  • Luckily, my monitor was connected via DP1.2 and had analog audio output jack, and it even got detected.. Ubuntu settings UI has sound check, and the sound is working, even saying stuff “front-left, front-right”. But VLC media player has choppy sound, which interrupts every 5 seconds or so. And Google Chrome(youtube and so on) has no sound output. One good man advised to edit some file, and I’ve ended up with no sound at all…

I am totally messed up with ENORMOUS complexity of Linux sound stack(which I definetely dont want to learn before bed) And I don’t understand well all those fancy words like ALSA, pulse audio, port audio, jack, … What should I do to just watch movie without sound dropouts?

Jobs In Audio Video Editing And Post production

Film making is not an easier task, to make it simple and easier it has been split into 3 main sections i.e. Pre production, Production and Post production. Let’s discuss these three in brief:
Pre Production: In this preparations are made for the shoot, in which cast and crew are hired, locations are selected and sets are built.
Production: In Production raw materials for the finished film are recorded and, last step i.e.
Post Production: It turns individual scenes, called raw footages…

USB Audio interface with Google Pixel 3a

I just migrated to a Google Pixel 3a coming from an old iPhone and I realized that I can’t use my USB external audio interface for recording videos with my new phone.

I used my Zoom UR-24 without any problems with an old iPhone 5s

It’s a shame, because one of the main reasons to migrate was the camera quality and for recording videos with external audio.

Is there any usb soundcard compatible with Android/Google Pixel ?

With the Pixel 2 supporting USB Audio Class 1/2/3, which USB audio devices work? Or *don’t* work?

https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/phone-by-google/Yvy0RfOPFfU

Pixel 2 supports audio adapters and headsets that communicate digitally over USB-C as defined by USB Audio Class 1/2/3. Pixel 2 does not support an analog audio signal over USB-C and subsequently will display an unsupported notification warning when an analog audio device is attached.

Here’s the spec documents from USB.org:

http://www.usb.org/developers/docs/devclass_docs/

So it got me thinking, what kinds of USB audio devices are actually supported?

  • Audio mixers, like this one from Behringer? Or does it only support USB output, not input? I have such a mixer, but I don’t have a Pixel 2 to test.

  • Car stereos, to my knowledge, have never supported any USB Audio Device class. I hope this changes, but all I’ve seen is support for USB mass storage mode (only old versions of Android), then MTP (only plays formats that the car stereo supports; no FLAC, maybe no AAC), and then AOA v2, which seems to have been abandoned for some reason (Pixel 2 doesn’t support it, nor does the Moto X4).

  • USB headphones: some recommended models are listed on the Google post I linked above. Are there any that you’ve found not to work?

  • USB DACs/amps: here’s a thread, they seem to be well supported.

  • Speaker docks: they only support iPhones, don’t they? Has any manufacturer chosen to make one for the Pixel 2, or are there any that support a class of USB Audio?

Low Volume Through Speakers – Realtek audio

Im running Ubuntu 19.04 on a HP Omen Gaming Machine. The sound is very low when compared to Windows 10 ( I am dual booting ), almost like half throttle with the sound all the way up.

I have tried hdajackrestack as well. I noticed that when I plug the speakers in to the front headphone, it outputs very loud sound. The rear ( green) is still at half sound. I have Ubuntu running under a VM on Windows 10 and it sounds perfect, it shows the following audio driver being used.

Any ideas, why the sound is so low ? I have even modified the alsa base conf to hp, still nothing.
