I would try to do the recording without the -z:db parameter. For me,
it never worked, but I'm running an older version of ecasound
(v1.8.2r14), so maybe it's better with the newer versions.
Additionally, I would mute the line input monitor and copy the
recorded input to the sound card output during recording like this:
ecasound -b:256 -r -f:16,2,44100
-a:1 -i drums.wav
-a:2,3 -i /dev/dsp -a:2 -o guitar1.wav -a:1,3 -o:/dev/dsp
This way you can hear right away, if the tracks drops out of sync.
Also, make sure that you are running ecasound with super user rights,
because otherwise the -r parameter won't do any good, AFAIK.
Ofcourse, all the usual low-latency stuff applies, as well.
BTW, why do you wan't to specify the format like that? Isn't that the
