Problems with audio & midi on 2.1.5R

Problems with audio & midi on 2.1.5R

Post by Alicher Alikhodjae » Thu, 24 Oct 1996 04:00:00



Hi!
I use SounBlaster16 compartible sound card (Edison Gold) on P5-100 with
FreeBSD 2.1.5R, my config looks like this:

controller  snd0
device sb0      at isa? port 0x220 irq 7 conflicts drq 1 vector sbintr
#device      lpt0  at isa? port? tty irq 7 vector lptintr
a.e. lpt disabled (and also turned off).

Now I can play wav, etc... files using xanim, but not .au and not .mid.
Problem is strange behavior of 'cat file.au >/dev/audio'. The sound that
I hear is too slow (seems more than 2 times slow). Could anyone explain
me what I'm doing wrong. All hypothesis are accepted.

Second problem is playmidi, has anyone successfuly used it?
I've tried to use any key in command string but without success
most common error: No playback device found
( /dev/midi0 exists) only -e key causes silent awaiting.

Could anyone help?

                                               Regards
                                                   Cher.

It's probably just recorded at a different rate; i have .au files that
are recorded at 8000 Hz, and others that were recorded at 16000 Hz.
Files recorded at 8000 Hz will play normally.

Nope, haven't figured it out...

1. Network Audio System (NAS) on 2.1.5R

Hey there, I was wondering if any has gotten NAS to run functionally on
2.1.5-R.  I have SB16 on my 486, I compiled NAS, and got the audio
server auvoxware, which as I understand the server that supports sb's
and such.  I start it up auserver -aa & and it starts up fine, ps -aux
shows it running...NOW, when I try to run aupanel or auanything it says
can't connect to server...I have nothing else on port 8000...do I need
to stick it /etc/services or what else could I be missing?
