First, sorry if my english is not always on top, it's not my mother tongue.
I take this opportunity to introduce myself on this forum. I'm a fresh user of OSS V4, glad to have got rid of Alsa thanks to 4Front developpers.
Also glad not to have to use Pulse Audio which seems to be even worst than Alsa.
Got an ICH9 Intel HD audio on ASUS and i'm fully satisfied of it.
In fact, I only use SPDIF output and numeric inputs from audio external materials (Benchmark DAC and Olympus LS10).
I'm just beginning to use line in for recording mix, so not getting yet any comment to make on it...
I'm not convinced anyway of the quality of analog input/output from any existing computer soundcard and prefer to use external dedicated digital interfaces and, to my sense, for SPDIF output on Linux, OSS is far the best driving software (even before V4, I was already using it instead of ALSA - does ALSA mean All Linux Sounds Awful?
If I can ask here : where and how can I make some comments about last OSSV4 version (4.2-2000) because I'm having some problems with it that aren't there with 4.1-1052...and so not using it. In fact, the question is more how can I give information as a simple user in a relevant way?
PC environnement :
ASUSTEK P5E-VM HDMI motherboard.
ðebian lenny 5.03 with mostly KDE 3.5.10 and/or Gnome sometimes for testing
Sorry also to be a bit too talkative... I'm french..
Thank's for this forum and the good work from 4Front.
