[SOLVED]Audio output 2.1 but Plasma applet says 7.1

I have 2.1 speakers connected to the 3.5 mm jack output.

The first thing that strikes me is that the audio jack output is identified as USB:

The second thing is that it maps it as 7.1 channels when it is really 2.1:

This causes that if an audio has more than 2 channels I do not hear them all.

Re: [SOLVED]Audio output 2.1 but Plasma applet says 7.1

Please don't embed huge images directly.  https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Genera … s_and_code

Welcome to alsa-ucm-conf where every logical profile that exists that would set this up properly isn't valid anymore.

You need to either create a manual remap sink or tell pipewire/pulseaudio to not use ucm but traditional ALSA configs. See https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/PipeWi … y_PipeWire (i know this is talking about a microphone, for the logical principle of what we want to test this doesn't matter, set the ucm-profile to false and acp to true) for either wireplumber or pipewire-media-session or https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/PulseA … %22HiFi%22 if you are using pulse

If you want to opt for a remap sink instead you need to remap the 7.1 output to a 2.1, see https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/PulseA … to_5.1+2.0 for pointers, the relevant module exists for pipewire as well so the configuration on it's own will be identical.

Re: [SOLVED]Audio output 2.1 but Plasma applet says 7.1

KDE Plasma Version: 5.27.1
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.103.0
Qt Version: 5.15.8
Kernel Version: 6.1.13-xanmod1-1 (64-bit)
Graphics Platform: Wayland
Processors: 64 × AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3970X 32-Core Processor
Memory: 62.7 GiB of RAM
Graphics Processor: AMD Radeon RX 580 Series
Manufacturer: ASUS

I was using Pulseaudio but have switched to Pipeware to try to correct this. I have installed "wireplumber", "pipewire-alsa" and "pipewire-pulse".
The link about Pipeware to try to correct this I think is not well written because it assumes that this file/folders exist and it is not my case.
I created it and it looks like this:

❯ cat /etc/wireplumber/main.lua.d/50-alsa-config.lua
alsa_monitor.rules = {
        apply_properties = {
            -- Use ALSA-Card-Profile devices. They use UCM or the profile
            -- configuration to configure the device and mixer settings.
            ["api.alsa.use-acp"] = true,
 
            -- Use UCM instead of profile when available. Can be
            -- disabled to skip trying to use the UCM profile.
            ["api.alsa.use-ucm"] = false
        }
}

After doing this, the problem becomes worse: https://i.imgur.com/wsmiGZ9.png

Both audio outputs (the graphic card HDMI output and the one integrated on the motherboard) are set as "non-active cards". And although I have switched the "USB Audio" output to "On", the USB playback devices it shows are all set to Off and it won't let me activate any of them.

I post the journal output because there are quite a few errors:

Re: [SOLVED]Audio output 2.1 but Plasma applet says 7.1

The warnings on their own should be harmless. What do you get from

amixer -c0
pactl list cards
pactl list sinks

now? It's possible that there aren't any valid ACP profiles for the chipset which would mandate to either write one or stick to UCM and do a remap sink instead.

Re: [SOLVED]Audio output 2.1 but Plasma applet says 7.1

On the off chance this sheds more light, proper amixer command in this case would be

amixer -c1

However that's looks quite broken indeed. In that case I suggest you remove the file/revert to UCM again and go with a remap sink that enforces 2.1, should be something like

pactl load-module module-remap-sink sink_name=Stereo sink_properties="device.description='Stereo'" remix=yes master=alsa_output.usb-Generic_USB_Audio-00.playback.0.0 channels=3 master_channel_map=front-left,front-right,lfe channel_map=front-left,front-right,lfe

note that the name of the master channel will likely change should you revert to UCM config and you need to use the updated name. That will give you a sink that enforces 2.1. If you do not hear anything with that, chances are actually the side or rear channels are actually attached to your card, in which case you need to change the master_channel_map to side-left,side-right,lfe or rear-left,rear-right,lfe respectively

I have restarted the pipewire and pipewire-pulse service but it does not show that additional stereo "output" in the Plasma audio widget. 

When I restart the computer that sink disappears.

Re: [SOLVED]Audio output 2.1 but Plasma applet says 7.1

By the way the output of this command gives error:

Re: [SOLVED]Audio output 2.1 but Plasma applet says 7.1

Yes the sink disappears if you restart pipewire/pulse or restart your system. You do not need to restart any of those, run the command and check directly after. You might need to tick a box so it shows virtual sinks, but in doubt you can do

pactl move-sink-input $sink-input-index$ Stereo

where $sink-input-index$ is the stream you want to move as given by pactl list sink-inputs during active playback. You can make it persistent by configuring the module load in your/a pipewire-pulse.conf but I suggest you only do that after you've found a working config.

e.g.
/etc/pipewire/pipewire-pulse.conf.d/50-create-stereo-sink.conf

context.exec = [
    { path = "pactl" args = "load-module module-remap-sink sink_name=Stereo sink_properties=\"device.description='Stereo'\" remix=yes master=alsa_output.usb-Generic_USB_Audio-00.HiFi__hw_ALC1220VBDT__sink channels=3 master_channel_map=front-left,front-right,lfe channel_map=front-left,front-right,lfe" }
]

Re: [SOLVED]Audio output 2.1 but Plasma applet says 7.1

ok, the command: "pactl load-module module-remap-sink sink_name=Stereo sink_properties="device.description='Stereo'"..." works.

I've created the file "/etc/pipewire/pipewire-pulse.conf.d/50-create-stereo-sink.conf" but when I restart, it doesn't create the sink. The output of journalctl:

Re: [SOLVED]Audio output 2.1 but Plasma applet says 7.1

Thanks @V1del, this solves the problem but I wonder if there is not a better way to indicate to Alsa directly that the "USB Audio Speakers" device is Stereo.

On the other hand, the Plasma system tray icon does not show the Stereo sink: https://i.imgur.com/BHwG0Tv.png

Re: [SOLVED]Audio output 2.1 but Plasma applet says 7.1

right click the icon and tick the "show virtual devices" box.

There should be a better way to indicate multiple distinct profiles indeed. Afaik this would if anything be a bug report against alsa-ucm-conf/an attempt at configuring it to properly split into the relevant profiles again. I incidentally have a similar in fact the same device, might do some testing here over the weekend.

Yes, I already tried this but the applet still does not display it. If I open the application window it does show it.

Re: [SOLVED]Audio output 2.1 but Plasma applet says 7.1

This workaround has a problem, it depends on the volume of the original "Speakers (USB Audio Speakers)" output. How can I make sure that the "Speakers" volume is always at 100%?

The script is exactly the same:

$ cat /etc/pipewire/pipewire-pulse.conf.d/50-create-stereo-sink.conf
context.exec = [
    { path = "pactl" args = "load-module module-remap-sink sink_name=Stereo sink_properties=\"device.description='Stereo'\" remix=yes master=alsa_output.usb-Generic_USB_Audio-00.HiFi__hw_ALC1220VBDT__sink channels=3 master_channel_map=front-left,front-right,lfe channel_map=front-left,front-right,lfe" }
]

On the other hand, I finally managed to stop wireplumber from using alsa ucm. I was missing a comma at the end:

$ cat /etc/wireplumber/main.lua.d/50-alsa-config.lua
alsa_monitor.rules = {
    apply_properties = {
        -- Use ALSA-Card-Profile devices. They use UCM or the profile
        -- configuration to configure the device and mixer settings.
        ["api.alsa.use-acp"] = true,
 
        -- Use UCM instead of profile when available. Can be
        -- disabled to skip trying to use the UCM profile.
        ["api.alsa.use-ucm"] = false,
    }
}

But the problem persists, map all outputs in the same way (with the same channels) but rename them all to USB Audio, USB Audio #1, .....

How can I determine the source of the problem: Alsa, Wireplumber or Pipewire? To report the error.

Re: [SOLVED]Audio output 2.1 but Plasma applet says 7.1

I finally succeeded.
I did a search for my sound card in ALSA's ucm profiles and modified mine directly:

$ ag ALC1220 /usr/share/alsa/
/usr/share/alsa/ucm2/USB-Audio/Realtek/ALC1220-VB-Desktop.conf
1:Comment "USB-audio on Realtek ALC1220-VB desktop"
3:      File "/USB-Audio/Realtek/ALC1220-VB-Desktop-HiFi.conf"

/usr/share/alsa/ucm2/USB-Audio/USB-Audio.conf
31:     True.Define.ProfileName "Realtek/ALC1220-VB-Desktop"

$ cat /usr/share/alsa/ucm2/USB-Audio/Realtek/ALC1220-VB-Desktop.conf
Comment "USB-audio on Realtek ALC1220-VB desktop"
SectionUseCase."HiFi" {
File "/USB-Audio/Realtek/ALC1220-VB-Desktop-HiFi.conf"
Comment "Default Alsa Profile"
}

$ cat /usr/share/alsa/ucm2/USB-Audio/Realtek/ALC1220-VB-Desktop-HiFi.conf
....
SectionDevice."Speaker" {
        Comment "Speakers"
        Value {
                PlaybackChannels 8
                PlaybackPriority 200
                PlaybackPCM "hw:${CardId}"
                JackControl "Speaker Jack"
                PlaybackMixerElem "Speaker"
        }
}
.....

I have changed "PlaybackChannels 8" to "PlaybackChannels 2" and it works now.

Re: [SOLVED]Audio output 2.1 but Plasma applet says 7.1

Yeah sorry that one fell off a bit I did find that one as well but I'd rather have different profiles to be selected on demand again, than hardcode the channel count, haven't quite found a working config for that. Do note that this will likely get overriden on alsa-ucm-conf updates and you might want to add that file to a NoUpgrade directive in your pacman.conf
