 CA0132

Brand: Creative (Sound card)
Back

Release: Qiana
Status: Works partially
 
Owner:

What works:

NOTE! ca0132 refers to BOTH the Sound Blaster Recon 3D and the Sound Blaster Z series of soundcards... it also includes the "FATAL1TY" and "Professional" editions of both since they're the same base Digital Sound Processors that run the cards.

----------------------------

Works perfectly fine with a 32bit Kernel (tested from 3.7 up to 3.16.2 kernels) where it will say "ca0132 DOWNLOAD OK :-) DSP IS LOADED."

The microphone input never worked for me first try until I went into "aslamixer" and turn on "AMic1/DMic" and "Mic1-Boost".

Where-as on 64bit? It will give "ca0132 DOWNLOAD FAILED!!! DSP IS NOT RUNNING."... and then you get no sound or static.

What doesn't work:

Front audio and front mic ports do not work period. Only rear ports.

Some people have said using "modprobe snd-hda-intel model=generic" gets the front ports to work... but then the rear ports stop working...

in 64bit kernels (tested up to 3.16.2 kernel) the sound and microphone will fail to work unless you go into "alsamixer" and turn on "AMic1/DMic" and "Mic1-Boost".

What was done to make it work:

The fix for 64bit kernels on Linux Mint with Kernels post 3.16?


1. Open up Terminal.
2. sudo nano /etc/rc.local
3. and then before the "END" at the bottom of the rc.local file? add these two lines:

rmmod snd_hda_intel
modprobe snd_hda_intel model=generic

4. Save (CTRL O) and then exit (CTRL X)
5. sudo reboot

----------------------------

The fix for 64bit kernels on Linux Mint with Kernels pre 3.16?

1. Open up Terminal.
2. sudo nano /etc/rc.local
3. and then before the "END" at the bottom of the rc.local file? add these two lines:

rmmod snd_hda_intel
modprobe snd_hda_intel position_fix=1

4. Save (CTRL O) and then exit (CTRL X)
5. sudo reboot

----------------------------

And that should get it to work... if your microphone doesn't work?

1. Open up "Terminal"

2. Type in "alsamixer" and hit enter
3. Press "F6" to Select Sound Card

4. Select "HDA Creative" and hit enter

5. Press "F4" for Capture

6. Use the left and right arrows to navigate the selections and use "Insert" key to enable/disable selections

7. Select the "AMic1/DMic" and click your "Insert" key to enable it. Do the same with "AMic1/DMic Auto Detect".

8. If the input is quiet, select "Mic1-Boost" and click your "Insert" key to enable mic boost.

Additional notes:

I hope this helps anyone else trying out the ca0132 Sound Blaster soundcards. :)
