    Phoronix: Linux 5.4 Continues Sound Open Firmware, Improvements For AMD/NVIDIA HDMI Audio

    Linux 5.4 will sound better. Well, at least provide audio support on more hardware with this next kernel release thanks to the latest batch of open-source sound improvements...

    i hope that they somehow fix the bug that they have with creative RX that no sound on side channels in 7.1.

    BTW: is there any other sound card with 7.1 and hardware bass and treble control that are also available in alsamixer? (PCIe)

      And what I hope is that they fix some minor underrun issues under Intel chipsets (especially ALC1150) that have been present since Linux 4.17 or so.
      Linux 4.9 had perfect audio at 128-sized buffers on JACK, until it broke on 4.13 and was sorta fixed on 4.17...

        - Support for the Scarlett Gen 2 mixer interface, a high-end USB audio interface for musicians by Focusrite that retails for around $160 USD.
        Meeh... you pick out the focusrite, but left behind the Pioneer DDJ-SX3?
        (To be clear: mic mixer still needs to be done, but on windows I don't know of any software except of the pioneer driver settings that can change it, so I assume a libusb variant should be sufficient, until I know how alsa wants to see a mixer driver).
