Using Respeaker 4-Mic Array for Raspberry Pi v1.2 on Rasperry Pi 3

I try to get a Respeaker 4-Mic Array for Raspberry Pi v1.2 01/11/2021 running on a

  • Rasperry Pi 3
  • Raspbian GNU/Linux 10 (buster)
  • Kernel 5.10.103-v7+

I started from the provided image:

But the mic did not work out of the box, so I uninstalled and installed from with no luck.

I did apt-get updates / upgrades and added dtoverlay=seeed-voicecard to /boot/config.txt
to assure the card is powered. But the card does not shuw up using arecord -L
(and trying to record audio does not work).

Setting the leds using the demo provided by works like a charm.

Migth the Respeaker be broken?

You can refer to the content of this post. I hope this is helpful to you.

Followed the description step by step, using HinTaks repository up to step 4 (excluding), recieved no error messages but arecord -L returns:

    Discard all samples (playback) or generate zero samples (capture)
    JACK Audio Connection Kit
    PulseAudio Sound Server
    bcm2835 HDMI 1
    USB Stream Output
    bcm2835 Headphones
    USB Stream Output

Have you confirmed that you have re-burned the 64-bit system?
