    Sound problem: Correct ALSA driver, but funny sound.


    I have an Audiophile 2496 card. The correct driver should be snd-ice1712. With this driver, I get sound, but it's sped up and with a pop occuring about every 1,5 seconds. To me, this seems like the driver is wrong (even though ALSA says it's the correct one), so I tried a similar driver, snd-ice1724, but it made no sound at all.

    Does anyone recognize this problem? Is it some parameter that needs to be configured, or is there another driver that works better? Any help is greatly appreciated.

    I got very poor sound quality, when a program tried to use ESD instead of ALSA. So I changed the program (the option that worked was use external command in that particular program) and it works fine.

    Not sure if this helps any

    Good luck

    I don't think that's it, because the problem persists on all the audio software I try (kaffeine, amarok, audacity etc). Anyway, I didn't understand exactly what you meant I should configure, there's no "use external command" in either of the above programs.

    what I was talking about, was that on a particular program, there was a setup option to do with sound. So I played around with these until I found the one that worked.
