[linux-audio-user] ecasound/alsa question

Hello y'all - somebody's bound to know this one - i can't quite find it in tutorials or examples

i'm trying to record multiple tracks at once (different tracks into ecasound) and also play them back as seperate tracks sent to seperate outputs (as i am always trying to do)

i believe i succeeded at this last night using jack, like so:


ecasound -c -r -b:64 -f:16,1,48000 -a:1 -i jack_alsa,alsa_pcm:capture_1 -o track1.wav -a:2 -i jack_alsa,alsa_pcm:capture_2 -o track2.wav

and output:

ecasound -c -r -a:1 -i track1.wav -o jack_alsa,alsa_pcm:playback_1 -a:2 -i track2.wav -o jack_alsa,alsa_pcm:playback_2

but i'd like to do it without jack now - possible?  I would think so - using the same addressing as aconnect uses right?  but i don't remember the syntax - can't find the emails mark k. wrote me about that very thing...

anybody care to re-enlighten me? :)
