Using a Turtle Beach Amigo II with a Raspberry Pi

To make the Turtle Beach Amigo II the default sound card on a Raspberry Pi, edit “/etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf” and comment out the second line below:

# Keep snd-usb-audio from being loaded as first soundcard
# options snd-usb-audio index=-2

After you reboot, you should see the following:

# Get a list of sound cards using procfs

pi@raspberrypi ~ $ cat /proc/asound/cards
