I've been using ecasound v1.9dev5 (rpm) for a some time now and it
works pretty well.
I can say
ecasound -r -z:db -b:128 -i:/dev/dsp -o:/dev/dsp
and get a clean sound.
If I want add some effects I have to use -b:256, but that's rather
However, when I upgrade my ecasound to the latest version, 2.0.1, the
performance unexpectably goes down and I have to use a larger buffer
size (maybe 1024, can't quite remember)... which is really
I was wondering, if there was something specific that has changed
between the two versions. Right now it makes no sense whatsoever for
me to make the upgrade.
The other problem that I've been having with the newer 2.0.x versions
is that my ewf-loop files stop functioning properly. I think, that for
some reason the loop length is computed in a different way and after
looping for a while the loop gets totally out of sync with the other
tracks. This is very annoying. The only solution that I've come up
with is to fix all the loop lengths by ear... but I haven't tried that
Otherwise, ecasound is great!
I've the Hoontech XG sound card with the Yamaha 754 chip and I'm using
the ALSA CVS driver with OSS emulation.
Thanks a lot for any comments, have a nice day,
