that makes sence. i tried a bit more and found out that i have to specify 12
channels for input and 10 channels for output. it's a bit strange because my
soundcard only has 4 physical inputs and 4 physical outs.. it must have to do
with the ice1712's capabilities that aren't implemented (physically) on the
stripped down board called Audiophile.
i assume that the output alsa,hw:0,0,0 mixes down everything in hardware,
when i specify 10 or less mono input sources. (hmmm, maybe the 2 extra input
channels can let me capture that mix down?). i've been experimenting a lot
this afternoon and i think i understand how ecasound works now. i love it!
thanks for all your help and this fantastic piece of perfect software.
