hello all, a couple of questions:
1) have any of you had success installing ardour (ardour.sf.net)? if so, could you please contact me to review the steps taken? 2) audacity users: i currently have audacity-1.0.0_2 installed (audacity.sf.net). even though it invariably hiccups an error message about /dev/dsp not being a valid playback device, it does provide playback. i cannot, however, seem to get it to record. i've scoured both google and the audacity mailing lists, but no luck. for what it is worth, i do have 1 recording channel... > cat /dev/sndstat FreeBSD Audio Driver (newpcm) Installed devices: pcm0: <ESS Technology Maestro-2E> port 0x1400-0x14ff irq 5 at device 8.0 on pci0 (4p/1r/4v channels duplex) i have also fiddled with the mixer settings in pretty much every way imaginable.... > mixer Mixer vol is currently set to 75:75 Mixer pcm is currently set to 75:75 Mixer speaker is currently set to 75:75 Mixer line is currently set to 75:75 Mixer mic is currently set to 75:75 Mixer cd is currently set to 75:75 Mixer rec is currently set to 75:75 Mixer ogain is currently set to 50:50 Mixer line1 is currently set to 75:75 Mixer phin is currently set to 75:75 Mixer phout is currently set to 75:75 Mixer video is currently set to 75:75 when i try to record, audacity complains about not being able to record and playback simultaneously under unix. when i try to change the program's preferences so that it does not try to do both at the same time, i uncheck a couple of boxes and hit 'ok'. however, as soon as i hit 'ok', audacity whines again about /dev/dsp not being a valid device and refuses to accept the changes. sigh. any suggestions you might have regarding getting recording working with this program would be VERY much appreciated. thanks for your time. cheers, epi _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
