Yes I would say I was interested in 3.
You see I have this 3D audio library (link is at the end of this e-mail),
and I am looking for a good subsystem to modularise it with.
This library needs to be able to pan a discreete sound source over all
speakers which are connected.
Firstly does ecasound have the capacity to drive arbitrary speaker counts
Then if that is possible can someone point me to online documentation for
the ecasound mixer API ?
