Re: [linrad] audio channels
OK, you are right on the output part. The stereo card should
have 2 channels all the way through. It is a requirement for
playing stereo .wav files It should work with one card in
In case of the delta44 though I assume that card should also
have 4 output channels so to say. having a second card for
playing the audio provides freedom in selecting sampling freq's
In my case with the AC97, Linrad reports 2 channels.
Though in reporting it does not report the 2 as the same.
Are you able to play stereo on you laptop?
