Audio Creation test 2012-07-26
The first Audio Creation test day will be on the 26th of July.
Join #fedora-audio on IRC for more information
What are we looking for ?
The most important thing we are looking for is usability and how to improve the user experience. We also need to make sure that programs behave as expected both from the live cd and after an installation.
- Fedora Jam iso - we use a single location, and it contains the [currently built spin isos]
- Free HD space
- Microphone or some way of recording
- Run jack and non jack programs at the same time on the live cd
- Run jack and non jack programs at the same time after install
- Create a short audio recording, using at least 3 different programs
- - add more common actions that we need to confirm are operational on the spin...
Here you can post any bugs or test case results you encounter. If you file a bug report, please link to it in the notes section
|Who||Test||Expected result||Actual result||Does it need fixing?||Notes|
|Sample User||Hydrogen through jack||Sound from speakers||No sound from speakers||yes||Only happens on Thursdays|
|jvlomax||Jack-audio-kit||Different applications sending audio between them||As expected||Nope||Tried at the most 4 application at once. Installed version|
|jvlomax||Midi connectivity||Use a midi keyboard, having it available in all application||It was||Nope|
|imalone||Jack with Amarok||Able to start Jack apps and normal Pulse apps||Unable to start without tweaking||yes||Possibly default Jack setup has been discussed, enabling DBus in QJackctl, restarting dbus before doing anything else and starting jack works (some odd interactions with Amarok I haven't untangled though, it does work eventually. (Live version, installed untested)|
|imalone||Recording with multiple apps||Able to record sound||Recording Hydrogen + Guitarix into Ardour over Jack works||no||Possibly some minor bug creating Ardour projects and being unable to type a name after selecting location. Will need to test a bit more). (Live version)|
|imalone||Recording with Jack capture||Able to start app and record sound||Unable to start app||Yes||Jack capture GUI wont start (seems to be a component missing). Command line utility works.|
|bsjones||Create Live USB w/Overlay||Persistent session between reboots||No issues||No|| su -c "livecd-iso-to-disk --format --msdos --reset-mbr --noverify --overlay-size-mb 512 /home/bsjones/Downloads/fedora-jam.x86_64.iso /dev/sdb"
Extra packages installed with no problems. Settings persist between sessions. Great! We should probably document this.
|bsjones||Compose||Built from rawhide/F18||Composed from F17||Yes||Suggest renaming the ISO accordingly with a version number and dist until composes are generated by the Spins team|
|bsjones||Desktop Effects||Deskop Effects do not interfere with Jack/Xruns||More XRuns while Desktop effects are turned on||?||Investigate turning off by default|
|bsjones||Missing packages||Required / Nice to have||?||pavucontrol / rtirq|
|bsjones||Seq24 / Zynaddsubfx||Adequate performance with no Xruns||Many Xruns||yes||I need to investigate the root cause of this problem|
|bsjones||qjackctl||Setup using Alsa interface||Jack fails to start||yes||Not sure why this is happening - more investigation required|
|bsjones||module-jack-source / module-jack-sink||Should be loaded by default using the pulse module-jackdbus-detect||Have to load sink/sources manually||yes||Maybe a deficiency in the version of pulseaudio currently in F17. More investigation required|
