I think the problem was sound card related. Basically full duplex recording
with the awe32 seems out of the question. I'm now using the awe32 for input
and a trident for output(the trident doesn't record well with a sample rate
of 44100). There doesn't seem to be any noticable latency or sync problems.
Yes I've dropped the double buffer and have changed the buffer size to 64. At
the moment I've opted for using the /dev/dsp interface until alsa settles
