mirroring the front/rear channels on a cs46xx with alsa
ok, so ive got a turtle beach santa cruz (cs46xx to linux), and i want to reattain my rigged 4.2 analog surround sound i had in windows. mk, google is my friend.
well cool, that didnt sound that hard. heh, i should know better. :D
Turtle Beach Santa Cruz
This is a good sound card, and it works great with ALSA, except one thing: The sound-card does not automatically mirror the Front channel to the Rear - so stereo sounds (the majority of them) just stay stereo. This can be gotten around using the asoundrc.
As with the Midiman DMAN above, to record from the input jack on this card you have to set all of LINE, CAPTURE and ADC to Captur(e), unmute all three, and set levels appropriately.
On my system at least, alsamixer detects two CAPTURE channels. The leftmost one was the one that I had to adjust to get recording to work.
ok, so they mentioned asoundrc... yeah. but they didnt tell me what to do with it! *whine* 8)
so i found:
alsa's docs on it.
anywho... nothing jumped out at me as being about setting which channels are record and so forth. did i miss something? does somebody know what they want me to do? haha.
