Setting up the Raspberry Pi for Pd (2) – choose audio output

One thing i found very annoying at first with the RPi was that audio output was automatically channelled to HDMI when connected to a monitor. I was planning to use the Raspberry Pi as a headless machine an I wanted to test everything with the analog (headphones) output.

There is a simple command to choose where the audio is output to on the RPi :

sudo amixer cset numid=3 <n>

“n” takes on three values : “0” for auto (the default option), 1 for analog output (headphones), 2 for HDMI.

Analog output was pretty bad at first, but recent developments of the firmware have fixed many problems. I’ll write another post about this soon.
