Re: [linrad] Crosstalk between input and output of a SBPC128 soundcard ?

Hi All,

   Yes, I have had this problem on several audio cards. It seems to be
card specific. Perhaps it is a chip defect, more likely Linux isn't
loading some, unknown to it, card register with the correct value.

   While we are on the subject of audio cards. Older cheap ISA cards seem
to be of MUCH higher quality than more recent cheap PCI audio cards. 

    Some problems I have noticed:

    No anti-aliasing filter - seen a noisy spectra and many spurious
    Card driver consumes great amounts of CPU time leaving little
processing time for Linux.

    You might try a different brand of card and make a few simple
measurements on it.

    warm regards,
