i happened to notice that uade has a filter and resampler enabled by default, rendering the songs to sound muffled.

which settings do you make to get a result as unaltered and crisp as possible (even if it may not be 100% amiga-like)?

No, i meant first run has the error [1] ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c:1090:(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave Can not open ao device: 1 and it starts to playback mods after it.

so, you could playback mods with uade only 2 times and then never again? that's odd.

no restrictions like these here, but i also did not modify any of my .confs, after all. still, i need "sudo" to get uade running without device / uadecore errors.

streamripping mods to wav like this is quite frustrating, as the resulting files are all admin addressed only...

i try always use sudo, but in case with uade it does not work from the user.

also after reboot uade started only at second time:

sudo uade123 jingle5.mod
[1] ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c:1090:(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave

Can not open ao device: 1

uadecore: No more songs to play.

~/.../muzax/chip >>> sudo uade123 jingle5.mod


Song: jingle5.mod (24312 bytes)

uadecore: filter type: 1, force 0Playing time position 0.0s in subsong 1 (all suPlaying time position 6.0s in subsong 1 (all subs 17.4s)

uadecore: No more songs to play.

but for playing back jingle5.mod you still make use of "sudo"?

this is exactly what i try to get rid of :) it should perfectly work without admin rights and give no errors at all.

Hi Guys,

i came across the same issue and fixed it with:

cat /etc/libao.conf:




cat /etc/modprobe.d/alsa.conf:

options snd_mia index=0

options snd-hda-intel index=1

And now it works like a charm:

sudo uade123 jingle5.mod

Can not open ao device: 5 uadecore: No more songs to play.

sudo uade123 song.mod bypasses this problem - not sure, why this i needed though?

i thought i share this with you - here is a short summary of players relying on the uade (or xmp) backend:

frontend (backend)

audacious (uade) chipmachine (uade) deadbeef (uade, dumb) hippoplayer (uade) qmmp (libxmp) uade123 (uade) xmp (libxmp)

i was not aware that a deadbeef-uade plugin existed (!), seems quite interresting to me:

there also seems to be a more up to date version of uade avaiable?

got to read through all of these news now and find a proper way to get deadbeef-uade working ;)

salamander commented on 2019-08-10 19:17

hm, changing dev=default to something else only for getting uade to work seems a bit off? if you people have any ideas left, please let me know - would love to playback amiga mods natively (xmp works but uade is king of exotic variants).

what else alternatives are left, with uade as a plugin, audacious?

Hi salamander, so i asume you don't use pulseaudio, for alsa your libao config is correct, but it won't work for pulse. About uade.conf, this config doesn't have audio output, so that's not a cause.
