I'm really enjoying learning to use ecasound. I really like its versatility, Kai.
Anyways, I used the following format to just try out ecasound as a multichannel mixer. I think I understand the concepts that you present in your examples page. This is the command that I used:
ecasound -c -r -b:200 \
-a:1 -i:chords:wav \
-a:2,3 -i:/dev/dsp \
-a:2 -o:lead.wav \
. . . according to one of the examples presented.
Anyways, I tried playing some leads over the 'chords.wav' file to make a 'lead.wav' file.
I didn't hear 'chords.wav' playing, and when I played 'lead.wav' with an ecasound chain or even 'aplay', there was nothing on the file.
I tried the command again, and when given the option to look at 'help' options, I tried 'status'. I thought it would be a good place to start. :)
Anyways, it told me that the ecasound engine wasn't ready, and that the multichannel mode was disabled. I haven't made any personal tweaks to .ecasoundrc or anything like that, and I'm using the 2.0.4 version of ecasound. Do you have any suggestions?
Thanks for your help,
