I’m trying to rip vinyl records from an Audio Technica USB Turntable (LP60) to a Raspberry Pi running Raspbian Linux. The computer seems to detect the device, and it shows up in recording options in Audacity, but when I select it, I get the error message: “Error while opening sound device. Please check the input device settings and the project sample rate.” Changing the project sample rate doesn’t seem to help. The same error message comes back. Any thoughts? Thanks!
Preset Audacity to 44100, 16-bit, Stereo. That’s a plain, generic setting.
Audacity > Preferences > Quality
Audacity > Preferences > Devices
Thanks. After further investigation I determined that the turntable is reporting no supported rates, so no setting is going to work. Screenshot attached. Any idea why that might be happening?
We do not officially support the Raspberry Pi - mostly because it is a bit lacking in resources and horsepower, but I know that one of the developers managed to get it working.
How did you install Audacity?
Does it work using the on-board audio input?
There are several threads on the Raspberry Pi forum about getting USB audio input working - including this one: http://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=10848
A bit of Googleing for “raspberry pi usb audio input” might help.
How did you install Raspbian? Did you use Noobs?
