Subject: [gentoo-desktop] Multiple outputs from EMU10K2
Date: Mon, 04 Sep 2006 00:00:58
1 I've installed a Creative SB Audigy2 ZS sound card in my desktop system. The
2 card uses an EMU10K2 chip, supported by the emu10k1 kernel driver. This card
3 has 3 line outputs on the back. I would like to be able to direct sound using
4 ALSA devices to at least 2 of these 3 outputs. On other, older cards I could
5 do this by directing sound to alsa devices hw:0,0 and hw:0,1 in my .asoundrc
6 but this doesn't work for this card.
8 Basically, I need to direct high quality audio to an external amp and a couple
9 of JBL studio control room monitors, and event sounds from the computer to the
10 el cheapo (but adequate) speakers mounted in my monitor. Sending an audio
11 signal to hw:0,0 gets the sound to the 1st audio output on the card with all
12 the bells and whistles (e.g. tone control) available. No problems there :-)
14 How can I set up my /etc/modules.d/alsa or ~/.asoundrc file to direct an audio
15 input stream to the 2nd or 3rd audio output on the card? I don't need much
16 control over this audio stream. Volume control would be nice, but I can pretty
17 much set it and leave it in the built-in amp in the monitor which drives the
18 speakers.
20 Any other sources of information to which someone could refer me would be
21 appreciated.
