Description Carlos Martinez 2016-07-20 14:57:31 UTC
Hi I have a Tascam US-144MKII usb soundcard which is not working in Freebsd. The card doesn't light up. It's missing the drivers. I need to use the tascam for recording purposes.

If it helps for any developers out there The Tascam US-144MKII is very similar to the Tascam US-122. 

here's the dmesg output, it let me use NVIDIA hdmi / pcm, and onboard audio, the USB audio at the very bottom only says uaudio0 / which I don't know if it's my webcam or my tascam. 

root@fbsd11:~ # dmesg | grep pcm
pcm0: <NVIDIA (0x0012) (HDMI/DP 8ch)> at nid 5 on hdaa0
pcm1: <NVIDIA (0x0012) (HDMI/DP 8ch)> at nid 5 on hdaa1
pcm2: <NVIDIA (0x0012) (HDMI/DP 8ch)> at nid 5 on hdaa2
pcm3: <NVIDIA (0x0012) (HDMI/DP 8ch)> at nid 5 on hdaa3
pcm4: <VIA VT1708_8 (Analog)> at nid 31 and 29,36,30 on hdaa4
pcm5: <VIA VT1708_8 (Front Analog Mic)> at nid 33 on hdaa4
pcm6: <VIA VT1708_8 (Rear-panel Digital)> at nid 37 on hdaa4
pcm7: <USB audio> on uaudio0

root@fbsd11:~ # dmesg | grep TASCAM
ugen4.4: <TASCAM> at usbus4
ugen4.4: <TASCAM> at usbus4
ugen4.4: <TASCAM> at usbus4

Thank you!
Comment 5 Carlos Martinez 2016-08-10 03:48:40 UTC
I have a creative X-fi pci card which is not working either... but my main concern is the tascam. thank you.
Comment 6 Hans Petter Selasky freebsd_committer 2016-08-10 09:18:30 UTC
Can you also do:



usbconfig -d X.Y dump_device_desc dump_curr_config_desc

Where X.Y are the numbers after ugenX.Y for your device?

Ok, there they are
Comment 10 Hans Petter Selasky freebsd_committer 2016-08-15 18:00:45 UTC
Your device is not attaching because it is using vendor specific interface class values (0xff).

Does this help:

usbconfig -d ugen4.2 add_quirk UQ_AU_VENDOR_CLASS

Then re-plug the device.

Comment 11 Carlos Martinez 2016-09-27 09:16:22 UTC
What does add_quirk means? and Can you please give me all the details of the commands I need to run to have this working?

Thank you, so far I've been using Windows..

Comment 13 Hans Petter Selasky freebsd_committer 2016-09-27 12:57:34 UTC
Linux driver is here:

Would need to be ported to FreeBSD. Or it might be possible to extend /usr/ports/multimedia/webcamd to handle this device.
Comment 14 Marcel Bonnet 2017-06-12 01:14:26 UTC
Is someone porting the GNU/Linux driver or extending webcamd?
Comment 15 Hans Petter Selasky freebsd_committer 2017-06-12 01:38:15 UTC

Not as I'm aware about.
