    Does it still have so much latency when not using HT?

        Now we need the likes of KDE to allow easy mixing of record channels. Example GUI for mixing or choosing the record channels per program or base desktop. It's pathetic in some programs where you're trying to figure out /dev/ device socket and in many cases non are manifest.

          Seriously?

          I honestly can't tell if you guys are being serious or not. I have had at least five different Audio Cards and all of them worked just fine with Pulse. Everything from a Fortissimo 3 to MAudio 7.1 and way back to a Soundblaster PCI 512.

          Sometimes, if you have Audio Issues, try moving your Sound Card to a different slot on your Mobo. I have found that usually resolves the issues. Also try to set things up with alsamixer from the terminal. Hey Bo$$, go back to Neowin and stop trolling.

            The question rather is: Will it blend?

              My biggest complaint is that the hardware volume buttons of my usb headset change the master volume instead of the headphone volume. I can't file a bug because I really don't know where to track the problem, if it is related to gnome-settings-daemon or pulseaudio.
              My headset sends volume up/down keypresses and my mixer uses those for whatever the default channel is. I fix this on my headset by setting the headset as the fallback device (default device) when I plug it in.

              We hit that a couple years ago. They still can't do things like transparently move streams between channels, split/join channels, or send audio over the network. In addition, it is much easier to get consistant low latency and Jack blows away anything available on the Windows platform for pro-audio. Every time I use windows I wonder why they still haven't gotten it at least close to feature parity with Pulse.

                As an end user, you can file a bug with your distribution's bug tracking system. As long as they're not ubuntu, they'll either fix it (if it is a real bug) and push the patch upstream, or communicate the bug to the appropriate upstream for you.

                  I don't use a dedicated sound card (and haven't used one for years), PA works fine too. But again, you get noticeable latency if you're not using HT.

                    On my netbook killing pulseaudio was the difference between mumble taking 75% vs 25% of the available cpu. I saw similar although not as dramatic results when killing pulseaudio on an athlonII x4 I was using for a recording appliance. And the sound worked better off with it as well.

                      Perhaps you are one of the lucky few that are able to get audio mixing directly from your hardware. Unless I am mistaken for everyone else the software mixing is the only option then...
