How to get mic input [solved] / MusE in Mint 9

I was going to write that I couldn't get audio (mic) input into MusE to work, but I just realised how to do it. Since I'm here now, let me spell it out just in case someone else is stumped:

You need to
  • create an Input track in addition to the Wave track where the sound will be recorded,
  • set the output routing of the Input track to the Wave track (click on the Input track's right-hand jack symbol in the mixer), and
  • make sure that the system mic port is linked to the MusE input port in the Audio tab of JACK's Connections window.

Let me take the opportunity to thank the MusE developers for their awesome work! <!-- sBig Grin --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt="Big Grin" title="Very Happy" /><!-- sBig Grin -->

And incidentally, I do still have a question. I use Mint 9 (~Ubuntu Lucid) which comes with MusE 1.x, but I found a 2.0 build here which installed fine. However, I'm not sure whether that is a stable or development version so that I don't run into trouble later - the About box says Version 2.0 svn revision: 0. (I had a stab at building from source but the dependencies seemed daunting.)
Hi xiha11!

Thanks for the write up!
I believe it's high time for some improved video tutorials <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt="Smile" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile --> I've been meaning to do some...

As for your question, the MusE build you found seems OK, packaged builds unfortunately do not persist the version info in the about box.

Building from source is actually not that hard if you want to give it another try (2.1 is around the corner, hint hint)
the dependencies needed are something like
sudo apt-get install cmake build-essential libsndfile1-dev libsamplerate0-dev libqt4-dev uuid-dev libfluidsynth-dev dssi-dev liblo-dev libjack-dev

if that worked just run ./ in the source dir and hope for the best <!-- sWink --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_wink.gif" alt="Wink" title="Wink" /><!-- sWink -->

Hello Robert,

Your videos are really helpful -- I think no one will complain to see more of them!

And thanks for spelling out the apt-get line. I'll give it a whirl once 2.1 comes from behind that corner ;-)

best regards,
