Hmm... It would be nice to see an article about the Razr card now that it may have at least some support under Linux. What I'd be interested on is:
- Features support (optical I/O, SPDIF I/O, Digital, Analog).
- Hardware Mixing? (`cat /proc/asound/pcm`**)
- Sound quality.
- Recording quality (some cards even deform the wave form when recording... *looks in anger at his VIA VT82378 onboard hardware-mixing-capable chip*)
- OpenAL support, will the drivers feature a hardware renderer for OAL?
**This is the output from that on my system, yes I have two cards, one Live! Emu10k1, one VIA:
The bold text is what I'm interested on, particularly for apps such as TeamSpeak, which in its version 2 we're stuck with OSS jamming the capture, and no dmix possible support.
01-01: VIA 8237 : VIA 8237 : playback 1 : capture 1
01-00: VIA 8237 : VIA 8237 : playback 4 : capture 1
00-03: emu10k1 : Multichannel Playback : playback 1
00-02: emu10k1 efx : Multichannel Capture/PT Playback : playback 8 : capture 1
00-01: emu10k1 mic : Mic Capture : capture 1
00-00: emu10k1 : ADC Capture/Standard PCM Playback : playback 32 : capture 1
For such an old card, like the Live! you gotta love its 32 hardware streams capability.
