I wanted to create custom mixer for that device, because I can't get
recording to work. I've fiddled with mixer controls, but that seems totally
pointless and stupid solution for the problem. Open Sound System recognizes
my soundcard as High Definition Audio ALC888, but lspci -v and program for
retriving system information (i-Nex) shows it as nVidia Corporation MCP55
High Definition Audio (rev a2):
$ lspci -v
00:06.1 Audio device: nVidia Corporation MCP55 High Definition Audio (rev
Subsystem: Giga-byte Technology Device a002
Flags: bus master, 66MHz, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 21

I've compiled and run both mixgen <http://pastebin.com/YqK2q2fV> and
I've pasted the output on pastebin.
I wonder does recording work with that card. I can record, but the result
is barely audible and ossrecord doesn't show anything on volume meter of
I also want to thank you for creating Open Sound System and still working
on improvements. OSSv4 with production quality enabled is absolutely the
best sound solution for Linux and BSD.
