    You can get SB Audigy2 for 5$ on ebay and with that you can play sound from 64 different sources in the same time. And in bonus you get:

    - pulse audio free system (less dependences, all audio thing work equally)
    - an integrated amp (people who need to put volume to 200% in vlc will understand)
    - you get to use the only PCI port in your motherboard.
    - no CPU wasted to mix that sound.
    No thanks. My cmedia 8770 is waaaaay better. No need for hardware mixing in todays age.

    This might be one of the best sound cards with alsa drivers right now.

      Yes it is working fine. It's what I actually use (and before i did use one of these free 15 years old SB Live)

      The live work fine but is limited to 32 simultanous pcm.

      Note that these card are crap on windows (crap drivers or just not supported at all)

        Those cards support hardware mixing, so you can get sound mixing without dmix plugin.

        Note that Audigy 2/4 will be locked at 48khz sample rate in ALSA

          well, Nyquist said it's more then enough

          chips that do hardware mixing that i know of are VIA envy series
          and ICE from IC Ensemble, that VIA bought and rebranded as "envy"
          (to be more precise, they do resampling)

          if someone has a via envy, you can put this in .asoundrc to get direct resampling
          Code:
          pcm.!default{
          type hw
          card 0
          }
          ctl.!default{
          type hw
          card 0
          }

            Try configuring pavucontrol. It took me 30 minutes to fix that problem.

              (no one will know what is linux, like android)
              Why, Microsoft already have a kernel, the Windows kernel, and it is a great kernel.
              Not a bad kernel at all.

              Audigy 2 is a shit card that downsamples everything to 48 KHz.

              Wasted CPU? Maybe in the 90s. I got a Intel Haswell, it so that don't matter.

                pulseaudio by default grabs hardware ALSA device and it has nothing to do with pavucontrol. That is one of the reasons everyone hates pulseaudio.

                  Downsamples? Do you realize humans can't hear above 20KHz?

                    I have a Onkyo SE200PCI with a Envy24HT chip. It has hardware resampling but no mixing.

                    Pulseaudio or dmix plugin is still needed.

                      should have
                      from the datasheet "20 channels, 36-bit wide digital mixer"

                      alsa also does resampling and mixing (in libalsa)
