    I have been searching for documentation regarding using Linux as DAW with SQ5. I am quite novice in sound engineering, but experienced with Linux/Ubuntu.

    When I connect my SQ5 via USB I see a SQ-multi-channel audio device. But I cannot get Ardour or Audacity to use the channels.

    My main goal is to remix live recordings (16 tracks) using the features of both SQ5 and Audacity/Ardour to add effects and other tracks.

    So basically I want to use the 32 USB channels in and out. Is this possible with linux Jack and how?

    Have a nive day, and thanks for reading.

    Hi @HeuvelTop,

    I’m afraid the reason there is no documentation on use of the SQ with Linux is because this is not officially supported.

    You are obviously welcome to experiment however, and as the SQ is class compliant, you should be able to get it to work!

    A couple of things that might be worth trying – ensure you have USB-B mode selected, and that you are using the correct sample rate (96kHz).

    Hi Keith,

    I have found the solution. I have installed repositories and software from:

    I have started with Cadence, Catarina and Claudia.

    Now I have a multi channel interface that works.

    I’ll be back with more info.

    Greetings Frank
