Sound Quality Issues...


I've Installed the ALSA driver and the sounds works fine but the quality isn't nearly as good as it was with windows(I hate to say). So I was wondering what I could do to get the quality of the sound like it was in windows. If someone could let me know I would appreciate it. Thanks.

Oh yeah I have a turtle beach santa cruz sound card if that matters at all...

Well, I haven't tried another driver yet. Which driver do you think is the best for sound?

It depends on the hardware of course. But I had a similar problem (different kind of sound card), and after I tried a different driver it all sounded great, I choose a driver next to the one my OS SuSE auto loaded. When I say next to I mean the next one on the list provided.

look in your /usr/src/linux<version>/drivers/sound/
and see if there is an "cs46xx" C-header file
I've heard this is the driver code for Turtle beach cards.............
you may have to re-compile your kernel to enable/build the driver module..........
