mic to speakers


Hey guys,

I'm looking for an application that takes the input from the mic and just forwards it to the speakers. I know that if I turn my microphone on, this is done by default, but I want to use esd to forward the output to another computer, and I can only do that if I'm able to specify an application for esd to intercept.

I'm using my laptop as a "bug". Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Great idea, but audacity freaks out when I open it with esddsp. It actually freezes when I hit record. I'm wondering if there's a problem with it expecting the input to come from the remote machine as well?

Any ideas? I'm open to using a different avenue for setting this laptop up as a listening device.

Thanks

this is an idea i've never thought about or tries so i'm just guessing

audacity is very limited in what it tries to do and audacity blocks /dev/dsp which is the big drag

you might want to try a better recorder like ecasound there is even a tk/tcl frontend for ecasound
it's very powerfull from the command line and can be used with lots of different type settups/outputs/servers etc

if you cant get esd to do it

seems like there are lots of ways to establish a client server connection that can use the sound system
like
http://wolfpack.twu.net/YIFF/

the y sound system is network transparent / you add a yhost to allow connections

NASS and CAST are two others that are network enabled
