This worked with no real problems. But I'm getting crashes whan I start
experimenting with the aslahw devices in particular.

I'm getting dropped samples with the following:
ecasound -c -r -b:1024 -z:db -a1: -i alsaplugin,0,0 -o guitar.wav -a:2 -i
mix.wav -o alsaplugin,0,0
I'm using kernel 2.4.2 with low latency patch and the disks are tuned - not
fast disks though. I have been able to get short recording but usually
there's an under-run. What would be the above command with alsahw instead of
alsaplugin? Also what exactly is the alsaplugin?
I know it's difficult to say what hardware requirement are needed for
ecasound but given the above command, and low latency patches etc, what kind
of set up can do a duplex recording with out drops. I tried with a trident
card and an awe32(should have difficulty with full duplex)? My machine has
has 200 mhz cpu, 96mb sdram. If the bottle neck is disk transfer speed, how
many MB/sec do I need for both writng and reading? What kind of performance
penalties can one expect if ide interface is shared?
