Ive searched and searched, but cannot find an answer to this. I hate asking for easy help, but there is no reference I have been able to find to answer this.
Is the quality of sound within linux a issue? Ive installed redhat and my audigy plays fine, but any high pitched noise distort, and the volume is noticibly lower than my winxp partition. Went back to mandrake and all of my mp3's sound the same way. Sound perfect in windows, no distoirtion, nice base everthing. In linux, the music is extremly flat and high pitches are distorted. And being a computer oced from 2.0ghz to 2.6, you can imagine the fans I have going. To even get the music audible in my room, it all starts to distort. (This is from my audigy or on board asus sound)
I cannot find anything in any reference to this. I have set sound quality to 16 bit, played with aumix, switched sources, distros, you name it. I know, I know, why bother with a perfectly good partition of xp? I really like linux, alot... Dunno what to do...
Windows uses a noise reduce filter when playing sound. You can say there is middle man/woman in Windows. Its worst on Soundblaster LIVE!. Audigy uses the same chip that LIVE! has. You can use art daemon or write your own noise reduce filter. Set your volume to 75%. I don't have any trouble using that level and usually I set it to that level in Windows. You can pay for OSS modules and get near perfect sound. By my ear, MP3 will always sound bad. I can stand OGG files for a while. Switching distribution shouldn't change anything.
An overclocked system is one of your troubles. Overclocking can ruin devices and screw up data going to and from the device. The emu10k1 also gets hot. Have you ever touch the chip.
playing with the equalizer in xmms actually yeileded superior results next winxp partition. And did you know I simply place a mount point to access all of my win mp3's without moving them or making a shared partition between linux and win, or 2 copies?(or any file for that matter) Of course you did. Now, when will Mr. Gates learn something as simple as that?
Again, kudo's to linuxquestions.org and the people who make this place work.
