Audigy 2 ZS on FC4

by on Aug.23, 2005, under Hardware, Linux, Software

I’ve finally got a setup that sounds just as good as it does on Windows. I’ve tested the surround system with a DVD and so far it sounds pretty good. I think the trouble was that there wasn’t any signal generator to let me balance the speakers properly. But today I discovered that there is an alsa subdirectory under /usr/share/sounds that contains a noise file. Playing that in a loop:

$ while [ 1 ]; do aplay /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Noise.wav; done

I finally managed to get that elusive speaker balance through alsamixer. Now, all that’s missing is CMSS3D 🙂
