Hmm, I've lost a bit my own measure of what runs in that install (of
Mdk-8.2) with which I experiment with Sweep; though there's definitely
the "emu10k" modul running (for the SB 5.1 soundcard), and probably the
OSS emulation thusly.
(And I haven't loaded the OGG thingies yet. I _think_ I installed all
sorts of ALSA packages too but have to check...)
Though what I remenber distictly from an earlier install with, and
_running_, ALSA indeed was that the mixer - Aumix -, showed _more_
channels than what I get to see now; and that those channel's physical
relation to the existing lines/devices was different too. (Same with
Kmixer; which is visually "nicer" but Aumix has precise digits too for
settings which is what I need/prefer.)
Though I got used to it (had to), I don't really understand it, yet - for
instance, why the speakers plugged to the "speaker" connection of the
card do react (for volume control) on the "IGain" ruler in Aumix; but
not at all on the "Spkr" ruler. Number of other confusing things there
with those I-O-channel ascriptions too... Well, it works. But.
Someone who could point me to some source for insight ?
Next Q.: If all necessary ALSA packaged are installed, how to make
sure these are used ?
(And not the default OSS emulation; or is this done automatically with
compiling Sweep with that "--enable-alsa" switch ?)

yup, currently you configure to use either alsa or oss, but I'll make
that modular before the next release, and obvious in the gui to know
which you're using.

Hey just testing out now.
I can use it with my first device but get the 128 bit exception with my
It would be nice to use be able to use the devices I have created in my
I was told this function will allow you to get the device names:
Not that I know how to incorporate it or even if it is already used.

We want normal music!", I think that was more like acting than anything
I've ever done.
