Multi sound stream? By this do you mean hearing more than one sound at once?

If you do, then check out gnome's esound or kde's arts sound server.

Well I'd go for asoundrc and dmix. Couldn't get gnome or kde working. This is what works for me:

Quote:
pcm.dsp {
type plug
slave.pcm "dmixer"
}

pcm.dsp0 {
type plug
slave.pcm "dmixer"
}


# this makes native ALSA apps default to using dmix
pcm.!default {
type plug
slave.pcm "dmixer"

}

ctl.!default {
type hw
card 0
}

pcm.dmixer {
type dmix
ipc_key 1024
slave {
pcm "hw:0,0"
period_time 0
period_size 1024
buffer_size 4096
rate 44100
}
bindings {
0 0
1 1
}
Hope it fixes the tabs etc. cause it looked horribly. You need dmix for this which is included in one of the alsa packages. Save it in your home as .asoundrc

thx a lot.

i've made esound work, but occasionally there is some noise on my T41, i'll see if dmix works better.

Hey darkleaf,

Do you get any sort of lag when using dmix? I haven't ever tried it (I don't think)- I just gave up arts for alsa to get rid of that awful lag. I'm always open to new options...
