Hi. I’ve been trying to solve an issue regarding Csound and Portaudio with no success. I also think JACK audio server, which is installed on my system, is involved. I searched for other posts on the web from people with the same problem with no success. My understanding of the processes involved is limited, so any help is appreciated.
I’m not using Cabbage but CsounQT. However, I think the issue has to do with Csound, regardless the frontend used. Also, I’m using Windows 10.
In short, the issue consists of Csound closing whenever instructed to run using Portaudio. When using CsoundQT, the frontend closes with no warning or error message. When running via cmd, the last message printed is “reading 256-byte blks of shorts from adc7 (RAW)”; no error announced either but Csound closes (adc7 is replaced by the -adc flag accordingly but, when using the ‘-adc999’ strategy to display devices, it doesn’t work; Csound just prints ‘adc999’ instead)
-If the rtaudio module is set to ‘null’, Csound runs fine.
-If trying to set the audio driver via the realtime section CsoundQT’s configuration, the frontend closes when clicking on ADC or DAC if Portaudio is selected.
-I used to have this problem some time ago (JACK was installed). I formated drive c: and reinstalled Windows from the ground. When Csound ran, it worked perfectly. That was until I installed JACK again and the issue returned. I could see that a file “portaudio.dll” was being copied during JACK’s installation, but I don’t know where, nor if it that's relevant. Sadly, I currently need JACK for work.
Thanks in advance.
