Re: Why OSS sound quality is superior vs ALSA

The situation was like that: 1. One guy A told he possesses the knowledge to unblock full sound levels via alsa and that guy B taught him a lot of hackds about alsa. And that he, guy A knows how to put any driver into the kernel image. 2. In several days i contact guy B and he denies the info provid...

Re: Why OSS sound quality is superior vs ALSA

By the way my first soundcard was bought and used in 1999. I remember that it sounded the OSS way like unprocessed, neutral and dry on windows98. At that time windows98 used DOS driver beneath if i am not mistaken. Also i think i can't but agree with you that lack of highs pertaining to alsa can spo...

Re: Why OSS sound quality is superior vs ALSA

Let me disagree with you strongly. It's wrong to hang pricetage to people. I don't think that all alsa users are deaf. Perhaps they 1. have better monitors and soundcards than oss users which compensates for drawbacks of alsa sound quality. Many of them use adams and rme cards, yamahas 10m line. Man...

Re: Why OSS sound quality is superior vs ALSA

"By the way there is a secret esoteric knowledge with alsa also" - one of jackd developers confessed to me. There is a possibility to unblock full power supply to the card like it's done on OSS BY DEFAULT. Unfortunately, my internet broke before the guy told me the way to hack alsa... Stil...

Re: Esi Juli@ + OSS

I tried to unite info from many my posts to make one manual for gentu users. It's difficult to describe all steps for gen2. It's expected that a user has already used gen2 for some time. I hope though that the manual will be useful for all linux musicians. Here it is: _http://opensound.com/forum/vie...

Re: Esi Juli@ + OSS

Unfortunetely jackd2 turned out to be not so stable as it seemed. After playing with the packages =media-libs/libmtp-9999 =app-crypt/gnupg-9999 dev-libs/libxslt the operating system was kind of spoiled (fuked up as capitalists say) which made jackd2 not recompilable. Because those packs were connect...

Re: OSS Driver Patch for Jackd2 on Ubuntu?

After upgrading operating system to some new packages and reverting back i can no longer use jackd2 for unknown reason. Perhaps something got broken. For those who experience the same problem, i give the way to return to jackd1. You should install version =jack-audio-connection-kit-0.121.3-r2 on gen...

Re: OSS Driver Patch for Jackd2 on Ubuntu?

Better turn off vmix and use -w32. Jackd's internal format is 32float for cards that support 32-bit. I could not get 32bit mode with emu10k1 which is 16bit. But linuxmusicians recommended to use 32bit mode to have less clipping at peaks

Re: mpd instead of db for bit perfect playback

That mpd seems to be crap. I disabled vmix since my card supports hw resampling and turned on hw resampling by checking src box. Then i start mpd && ario and try to play a song. But slider does not move and there is no sound. I would recommend against mpd for oss and alsa users. That server-...

Re: OSS Driver Patch for Jackd2 on Ubuntu?

This looks like more a bug of jackd2. Moreover 44100 or 48000 samples of kontakt in carla were tested. Also the bug demonstrates itself only with -w32 and only left speaker is producing the sound as if the signal became mono.

Re: OSS Driver Patch for Jackd2 on Ubuntu?

I have got to know that by design jackd2 can't have -X before -d. But -doss does not have -X option at all and jackd2 will refuse to start. So you can't activate alsa-sequencer for jackd2 by the command starting jackd2. You can only have midi input support via a2jmidid -e. To make it clear once and ...

Re: OSS Driver Patch for Jackd2 on Ubuntu?

The benefit of jackd1 over jackd2 is that you do not have to run a2jmidid -e to get midi input visible in patchage. And benefit II is that jackd1 with oss is bugless while with jackd2 you can get a terrible hissing noise with at least one setting. Now i am running jackd2 with oss with the command: /...
