Re: Ecasound engine for potentially high-quality playback

Interesting! I have compiled deadbeef /DB/ from source code: git clone https://github.com/Alexey-Yakovenko/deadbeef.git CXXFLAGS="-O2 -pipe -frename-registers" CFLAGS="${CXXFLAGS}" ./autogen.sh CXXFLAGS="-O2 -pipe -frename-registers" CFLAGS="${CXXFLAGS}" ./con...

Re: Ecasound engine for potentially high-quality playback

Ecasound plays clearer than audacious and mpd (mpd's crap).

A script to output via oss for ecasound will be like those above but you should replace -o alsahw,1,0 by -o /dev/dsp

Re: mpd instead of db for bit perfect playback

mpd + oss = crap I get metalliclike distortions.... You may try yourself .mpdconf for audio output for oss will be like that: audio_output { type "oss" name "My OSS Device" device "/dev/dsp" # optional mixer_type "hardware" # optional mixer_device "/dev/m...

Re: Getting rid of jackd for higher quality

Also it may be possible that wineasio works only with alsa.

Re: Getting rid of jackd for higher quality

New news: 1. BSD has only jackd1, no jackd2. It means that most of linux audio features won't be available. 2. dssi-vst no longer works. To get vst support under linux, u now must install airwave program. Run ariwave and add paths to vsts dlls. It will generate kind of bridge names. Those names will...

THe patch seems to not work on 1.9.6 and 1.9.8 debian sources for jackd2. I get error:

Why OSS sound quality is superior vs ALSA

Some time ago i wrote that oss has more distinctive highs than ALSA. Alsa highs are kind of foggy like they underwent much low-quality resampling. It turned out that i am not the only one who discovered that phenomen. Another guy reports: " I'd much rather have OSS4 because the sound quality of...

Re: Ecasound engine for potentially high-quality playback

Here is a modified version of script v1 to playback files via sox instead of ecasound. No resampling is made with sox but look that your card's rate correspond to that of a song. #!/bin/bash SONGNAME=$1 if [ -z "$SONGNAME" ]; then echo "usage: $0 <song name>" ; exit 1 ; fi NUMBER...

Re: Ecasound engine for potentially high-quality playback

The following script v2 is modification of the initial script. In addition to the functions implemented in the previous script this one before playback resamples stream to 44.1\16 which is the format of ecasound. You can name the script as 'ecr' and issue as root: ln -s /place/of/script/ecr /usr/loc...

Ecasound engine for potentially high-quality playback

I have come across the post praising ecasound: Outline of my solution: 1. You need an rt-kernel 2. You need to shutdown as many processes as possible - best to boot into recovery mode - preferably on a headless client. 3. Copy your audio data to /dev/shm (ramdisk) before playback 4. Use ecasound as ...

Re: Getting rid of jackd for higher quality

The person who developed sndio for openbsd is a musician himself. It would be interesting to see watch it is capable of. On his site he proposes to compile sndio for linux and try it but it still will work via alsa on linux, so ... It seems that sndio is kind of pulseaudio with jackd capabilities an...
