Hello. Before anyone buys Creative's Platinum cards, I would
like to tell how they most probably are not working. Multiple
times I have tried to verify this with alsa-devel guys, but
it looks like nobody else has tested. People only believes
that their card is working but in reality it is not working
as expected. If you disagree and have better info, please
mail me and I will give you exact info how to test the card.
I mean exact! We do not need anymore rumors and believes.
Do not work in Alsa:
-LiveDrive line-in 2 does not come out from the mix bus, but does
come out via AC97 (whatever) path (perhaps low quality)
-LiveDrive aux input does not work
Has anyone tested the developer.creative.com drivers?
How to test them with Alsa? I don't want install OSS.
Can somebody test both Alsa and the d.c.c drivers?
i'm looking for a sound card that comes with linux support.
i recently switched over to linux and now i want to ditch my soundblaster
I find it hard to locate any cards that work with linux.
Could you give me some advice about a good card for linux.

I've got a few questions about the USB Quattro and Jack. Hope you can anwer
s ome of them:
I'm writing this app and I managed to get my Quattro going with Jack, but
only two of the outputs are available as ports at a time (quattro1 or
quattro2). Is there a way to invoke jackd so all four ins and outs are
available as Jack ports? I use the .asoundrc file Patrik Shirkey wrote, but
I understand too little of it to work it out :).
How good/bad are the latencies other Quattro owners have experienced with
Jack at 96k? Is it good enough to attempt close to real time signal
processing in software? I've read somewhere that it is possible to bring
latencies down to (quote) <0.5 milliseconds on a P500. Is this also possible
with Jack? At 96k? I have an athlon-xp 1600 btw.

I'm wondering if anyone has written a RedHat-style init.d script for jackd. I
haven't had any luck looking for one on the net.

Salve a tutti!!
Lo so che è una lista in Inglese, ma dopo assurdi tentativi misono
deciso a scrivervi...
lo faccio in italiano perchè spero di poter fare dei passi avant più
velocemente se trovassi un conterraneo disposto ad aiutarmi..
il mio problema è:
Io uso una debian unstable e attualmente è installata una Creative Sound Blaster
PCI128 (che credo abbia il chip ENS1371)
Credo che siano installati gli OSS/Free (spero), tant'è che riesco a
sentire i CD, suonare i midi, gli mp3 e gestire correttamente il mixer.
Ho visto pero che i sound server e programmi tipo tapiir o ardour o jack
si basano, o meglio funzionano molto bene con i driver alsa
ora, chi mi può aiutare ad installare i driver e a far funzionare sta
benedetta scheda e i relativi programmi?
ho letto che le alsa devono essere compilate nel kernel... devo
scaricarmene uno e fare il lavoro a mano???
sinceramente spero di no, ma se fosse l'unica via, vi chiedo ancora più
Scusate e grazie in anticipo!!
S t e f a n o C a r d o - windows? no, grazie...

The thread started with an inquiry about which soundcards support Soundfont on
their onboard synth chip, so it was perhaps not exactly what you thought it
Though what you ask, syncing synths to software apps is probably involved :)
The sb-live card (and it's siblings, ancestors and children) is in essence a
low cost samplingsynth. By putting a bunch of these into a computer case I
guess you could construct a fairly well working "external" synth.
As for syncing, they would be controlled by midi, I'm not sure what you where
aiming at here exactly, all synths do that don't they?
Some of the cards have sp-dif, some of the newer even have firewire (or
sb-firewire whatever that means (probably that it's broken)) so in theory
they would have pretty good soundquality as well as sync possibilities...

I'm an italian bass player and I'd like to record a 4 songs demo for the band
I play in with my PC (with Linux obviously). I'm searching for someone who
can suggest me any documentation/book regarding this argument and/or share
with me his experience (the hardware/software used and so on ...).
Thanks in advance for your reply,
I am running 2.5.70 kernel with jackit from CVS. I got POSIX capabilities
compiled in but when I try to start jackstart I get :
jackstart: cannot get realtime capabilities, current capabilities are:
probably running under a kernel with capabilities disabled,
a suitable kernel would have printed something like "=eip"
So I wonder if is there anything that I need to modify in kernel source to get
this work because without --realtime alsaplayer skips sound everytime I open
a new program.
With Best Regards,
Do we have any software tools for converting mtc to
I want to instruct a Korg Triton to play and it'll
only respond to midiclock.
I found a jlcooper datasync2 box but don't have a
manual for it. I'll play around with it some more.
Anyone else got one of these?
