Tascam US-122L, Ubuntu And Mixxx

Tascam US-122L is one of the first external USB sound cards produced by Tascam around 2006. It is still possible to make the card work on the latest Ubuntu versions and use it, for example, as a secondary sound source for preview playback on DJ mixing software like Mixxx.

Since there is no official (recommended) way to install Tascam US-122L on Ubuntu, you need to follow a few basic steps. Firstly, create (edit) the '.asoundrc' file to configure the Tascam sound card to run as 'usb_stream'.

To list the sound cards or modules connected (available), run the commands below:

cat /proc/asound/cards

cat /proc/asound/modules

You can also edit the configuration settings for the Tascam card to appear on the top of the list (make it primary):

This way the Tascam US-122L card can be eventually used with Mixxx also for other tasks like receiving Audio-In or MIDI-In signals, for example, to map Mixxx functionalities to an analogue drum machine.
