I can hear but cannot record
I'm a brand new Ardour user and I've been wrestling with the installation and configuration of Ardour this evening and I've made progress.
I'm using Ubuntu 11.04 and I have an M-Audio mobile USB preamp. The preamp is receiving signals from an electric guitar. I have created a track in Ardour and I did edit the "Audio 1 input". I gave it the connections system:capture_1 and system:capture_2. I can hear the sounds from the mixer coming through the speakers loud and clear and I can see the input level in Ardour dancing nicely around the '0' level.
I arm the track and then arm Ardour and hit play to record... but nothing actually gets recorded in the track. I've tried to use alsamixer to ensure that the 'capture' device is the MobilePre, but I'm not sure if I'm doing that correctly.
Does anyone have any tips to get me past what seems like is the last hurdle in this setup?
