Any results to your test/attempt?

Same issue here, did you solve it? I have the same project needs

I have made it work with a 64 bit OS with:

Have you tried that?

I’m running a Pi5 4GB on Raspberry Pi OS Bookworm 64 bit and I tried everything mentioned here including the Sybility drivers, but NOTHING works. This is my aplay -l output:

aplay: device_list:274: no soundcards found…

And these are the last lines from the sudo ./install.sh command output:

Job for wm8960-soundcard.service failed because the control process exited with error code.
See “systemctl status wm8960-soundcard.service” and “journalctl -xeu wm8960-soundcard.service” for details.

When I run sudo dkms status I get:

wm8960-soundcard/1.0, 6.1.0-rpi6-rpi-2712, aarch64: installed

The output of systemctl status wm8960-soundcard.service is:

 Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/wm8960-soundcard.service; enabled; preset: enabled)

Please help me out!

Continuing the discussion from ULTRA++ installation guide:

Hello, I am setting up a fresh project on a raspberry pi 4, so I have a fresh install of raspberry pi OS 64 bit full with everything up to date. I have gone through the simple install script because the on board mic and speakers are good enough for development of my project.

I think that I “successfully” installed the driver. The mic and speaker show up on the select-able list at the top right corner of the OS. However I am not getting any sound from the speakers and I think that the mic is also not working because arecord made an empty file.

I also do not see the red LED light turning on.

What do you think is going on?

Where are the alsactl preset files? They are not in their listed location. I really need them!! Please put them back up!

Helloooo, RaspiAudioooo. Anybody still here or have you abondoned support for this product?


We have updated method 1 and it is working now with the last Raspi OS

Method 2 is broken for now and it seems harder to solve. We are looking into it.

I tried installing the driver but it did not work for me.
I’m using Ultra++ with pi 5 on 64bit OS version 12.5

Everything appears to install correctly, but when I restart I don’t see the audio device listed in the audio menu. I have the pi 5 plugged into an external touch screen which has speakers and it plays over HDMI.

Other wise my only choice is HDMI out or Pro Audio. I don’t know what Pro Audio is but it doesn’t seem to work.

Bump. Any suggestions or updates?

Mine also does not work with a fresh install and following method 1 precisely. I do not understand why this is so difficult considering the ULTRA was anything but cheap :frowning:
Error is the same as with you, except I am using a 3b+ and installed Bulleyes 32bit.

I haven’t even tried to get working on the MIC+ V2 yet and I dread doing so after the pain and wasted time so far.

I have sent mine back now. I am not paying 75€+ for two pieces of unusable garbage. It’s ridicolous, that this is even being sold if it is non-functional.
There is literally nothing I could have done wrong with the instructions as short as they are.
