Nothing yet... just using the regular PCM driver from 4.7-STABLE. I don't 
think there's anything more to do... except buying the OSS drivers from 
Opensound but this is something I will not do.

Well, it is possible under Linux with the emu-tools:
I am unfortunately not a developer, so I don't know how hard it wood be to use 
or port the Linux emu10k1+emu-tools under xBSD... but I am ready to help, if 
I can do anything.

Same for me... I've been using FreeBSD for not very long (coming from Debian) 
and I love it so much on my servers that I would like my FreeBSD workstation 
behaves as well.

Maybe we should move this discussion over to
