Mics stop working

#1

My microphones stopped working again after an update. alsamixer only shows the speaker volume and not the mic.

If not, can anyone send me their working /etc/asound.conf file? Or have any other tips other than reinstalling everything?

Thanks,
Sean

Hey @sjmill01

Here’s the default config for a newly flashed MATRIX Creator with our kernel modules installed. Let us know if this resolves your mic issues. I’ll try updating a previous setup to see if I can replicate your issue.

pcm.!default {
  type asym
  capture.pcm "mic"
  playback.pcm "speaker"
}

pcm.mic {
   type softvol
   slave {
     pcm "array"
   }
   control {
     name "MicArray Master"
        card 0
   }
}

pcm.speaker {
  type plug
  slave {
    pcm "hw:0,0"
  }
}

pcm.array {
  type plug
  slave {
    pcm "hw:2,0"
  }
}

alsamixer

I got it to show as your screen does and I got it to record a wave file of me talking at it.

However, for some reason the Alexa app isn’t picking up on the wakeword (Alexa).

I’ll try reinstalling it.

See ya’,
Sean
