SimpleUSB_Tune_Menu

Hello everyone,

With an RPi, can you tell me how we can do to adjust the audio with a monitor service,

With PuTTY, I can see, "12 - Run simpleusb_tune_Menu Apllication"
And then, yes, I saw "2 RX VOICE Level Set" but I do not know how to change my value and also save it
Is there a step-by-step procedure for AllStar Link,

RX VOICE

thank you very much and Have a Nice day

Hello Ramesh,

Here is attached file 2 PDF
Of my pictures with PuTTY,
I choose 2) Set Rx Voice Level (using display)

Subsequently I want to adjust my audio and also recorded my configurations

Luc,

The items in simpleusb-tune-menu are the step by step.

Be not afraid to use a little intuition. Your changes are not saved
until you execute a command *IN* the simpleusb-tune-menu, of which I am
going to let you figure out.

While not always obvious, the ASL box mutes DTMF, so you cannot use
that. There is a reason why a 1KHz tone at 3KHz deviation is used. Try
to whistle to as close to 1KHz as possible!..

It is best to use a calibrated service monitor for getting accurate
audio levels, first thing it keeps your node radio in spec. The other
thing is it keeps the audio nice and clean. Find a friend in the area
with a service monitor and have him/her teach you how to appreciate why
it must be used when adjusting audio levels used in radio.

The values metered on the RX level scale are accurate, so when the RX
deviation meter on the simpleusb-tune-menu says you are at 3KHz
deviation, then you are at 3KHz deviation... provided that signal you
are putting into the node radio is *actually* transmitting at 1KHz tone
at 3KHz deviation. Read the aforementioned paragraph.

I would add, I adjust all the audio input and output of the radio to -10dBm, and set the USB interface to that. This way I can swap interfaces without need to reset the levels.

I am new to the whole asl software

I cant get simpleusb-tune-menu to run

Ive tried to goto sudo -s

nothing works

sonehow I knew the older crompton stuff but this curve is getting the best of me

OK here goes
capture-20200227-213737

that error alway got me because it is of zero indication what isn’t working…
Aside the fact that something obviously isn’t right.

First thing is to check your rpt.conf, there should be a line that looks akin to this:
rxchannel = SimpleUSB/usb28569 ; my node number is 28569

[nodes]
28569 = radio@127.0.0.1:4569/28569,NONE

Look at your extensions.conf:
[globals]
HOMENPA=903 ;my area code is 903… not needed but useful to prevent loops
NODE=28569

Look at your iax.conf:
[general]

register=28569:secret@register.allstarlink.org

look at simpleusb.conf:
[general]
[usb28569]
hdwtype=0
rxboost=0
txboost=1
carrierfrom=usbinvert
ctcssfrom=no
txmixa=voice
txmixb=no
invertptt=0 ; active LOW to TX (ground PTT line)
duplex=1 ; =0 if simplex radio, =1 if separate transmitter and receiver, i.g., repeater
rxondelay=1
eeprom=1 ; =0 is default, do not change unless URI has an EEPROM, leave =0 if unsure

look at file akin to simpleusb_tune_usb28569.conf

[usb28569]
; name=usb28569
; devicenum=1
devstr=6-1:1.0 ; this is derived from the output of dmesg
rxmixerset=275 ; tuned value, default is 500
txmixaset=245 ; tuned value, default is 500
txmixbset=0

Check your modules.conf to ensure the correct modules are loaded:
load => chan_iax2.so

load => chan_simpleusb.so

Finally, execute below, if you have something other then a RA-35/40/42, you may have to search
$ dmesg |grep C-Media
(my output, yours will probably vary):
[ 1.682150] usb 6-1: Manufacturer: C-Media Electronics Inc.
[ 1.692203] input: C-Media Electronics Inc. USB PnP Sound Device as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.1/usb6/6-1/6-1:1.3/0003:0D8C:013A.0001/input/input7
[ 1.752220] hid-generic 0003:0D8C:013A.0001: input,hidraw0: USB HID v1.00 Device [C-Media Electronics Inc. USB PnP Sound Device ] on usb-0000:00:1d.1-1/input3
r

notice the bold 6-1:1.3
start with :1.0, and restart asterisk each attempt until successful going into simpleusb_tune_menu using the following:
$ asterisk -rx restart

Notes:
$ - denotes you at the root prompt, su root or sudo su will take you there.
… denotes separation in location of variables. (scroll down IOTW)
Capitalization and punctuation must match

Check those files before going into root, this is prevent accidental changes. Once you are sure what needs to changed, then either sudo su or su root to stay in root while executing changes.

ok mine looks good in rpt.conf
iax,conf looks good too
however in extensions.conf I have the following

[globals]
HOMENPA = 999 ; change this to your Area Code
NODE = 42282 ; change this to your node number
NODE1 = 1999

I am doing a 2 node system for an allstar to dmr bridge

in order to automatically connect to node1999 I did a macro start up command startup_macro =*9531999
because I didnt want to go in manually and connect node 1999 to 42282 if power failed or the node restarted for whatever. I assume these commands still work with the asl software?

in regards to simpleusb_tune_usb_42282.conf I am using an ARS fob so mine is

[general]

[usb]
; ARS Repeaters USB Fob
eeprom=0
hdwtype=0
rxboost=1
carrierfrom=usb
ctcssfrom=no
txmixa=voice
txmixb=no
invertptt=0
duplex=1
plfilter=yes
;deemphasis=yes
;preemphasis=yes
rxaudiodelay=0

#includeifexists custom/usbradio.conf

Im not sure where my issue lies now

That usually happens when the rxchannel= parameter does not match the simpleusb.conf setting. Ie. rpt.conf rxchannel=simpleUSB/usb1234 must match the simpleusb.conf stanza [usb1234]. Be sure you are editing simpleusb.conf not usbradio.conf.

Also make sure you OS sees the USB device with lsusb at the linux CLI. You should see something like:

> lsusb
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 0d8c:013a C-Media Electronics, Inc. 
Bus 001 Device 006: ID 05ac:0220 Apple, Inc. Aluminum Keyboard (ANSI)
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 05ac:1006 Apple, Inc. Hub in Aluminum Keyboard
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0424:ec00 Standard Microsystems Corp. SMSC9512/9514 Fast Ethernet Adapter
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0424:9514 Standard Microsystems Corp. SMC9514 Hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

And finally make sure to change /etc/asterisk/modules.conf to load=chan_simpleusb.so from noload=chan_simpleusb.so.

yes,
I am making sure the correct conf folder has been editied

when I try the lsusb at the cli line I get “no such command”

maybe I can get someone sometime to teamview in & look to see what Im missing

My teamViewer started think I’m misusing it for commercial purposes. It times out in 5 minutes. :frowning:

OH Ok, thanks for trying
maybe I can mail the microsd card to someone who is willing to look at the settings
I can also provide my allstar node pin# echolink & dmr info etc

at this point Im at a lost, its been at least 12 hours
in the past I could setup a node in a 1/2hour

42282 is using the rxchannel = SimpleUSB/usb_42282 ; SimpleUSB
whereas node 1999 (allstar dmr bridge) uses rxchannel = USRP/127.0.0.1:34001:32001

can I use a startup macro to make sure 1999 connects automatically to 42282 each time the node reboots etc?

when I transmit into the node radio via the ars fob the fob lights up as if its receiving, but nothing from the node itself
I know I didnt shut off telemetry or is that an off default in the new software?

odd part is if I shut this node down and reinstall 42668 sd card it works fine

lsusb is run from the Linux prompt, not the asterisk cli.
Dod you enable the chan_simpleusb channel driver in
/etc/asterisk/modules?

yes I enabled that chan driver

odd its now lsusb

thanks

lsusb may require sudo/root privileges. Usually it don’t but does not hurt to try

Unless the DMR bridge conf has changed, it is not a USRP, which is a piece of hardware.

before trying any linking or any other commands, simpleusb-tune-menu needs to work, then get audio levels adjusted. Skipping this is not advised as the audio levels must be set properly in order to have clean transmit and receive audio… and to be able to decode DTMF tones.

I’d get rid of anything to to do with the 1999 node until you get simpleusb-tune-menu to work.
Then add it back only when it is working. Simpleusb-tune-menu may be looking for a URI for 1999.

maybe sometime this week when I am at work I can use screen connect to see what is going on.

Also, I see in the simpleusb.conf, you have duplex set to 1, is the radio a repeater or a simplex radio??
if it is a simplex radio, i.g., mobile radio or HT, duplex must be set to 0 in simpleusb.conf
and, in rpt.conf , duplex= must be either 0 or 1, i.g.,
duplex=1 ; simplex radio with telemetry

Thanks, but sadly I have given up on it

the allstar to dmr bridge doesnt need to be so dang hard to configure

I put my old crompton image on I had saved on another sd card back into the pi

I am sick of begging for help & thank everyone for their help
