INFO: Audio sink arch: alsa
So my audio stuff is defective, good to know :)
For alsa, in the device field in the audio sink, try something like
hw:0,0 or plughw:0,0
Seems to be alsa already...hmm...so this comes later.
It may just be that your audio-subsystem doesn't actually support the
sample-rate that the graph is configuring it for.
Here's the --help for dial_tone.py
Usage: dial_tone.py [options]
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-O AUDIO_OUTPUT, --audio-output=AUDIO_OUTPUT
pcm output device name. E.g., hw:0,0 or /dev/dsp
-r SAMPLE_RATE, --sample-rate=SAMPLE_RATE
set sample rate to RATE (48000)
Looks like the default is 48e3
Try other rates, like 44.1e3 or 32e3
