I started evaluating the program yesterday. It works very nicely so far. But I do have a couple questions regarding monitoring new songs while other songs are playing. I am using a Dell D820N laptop running Ubuntu 7.10.
I only have one built in sound card so:
is there a way (like some other mixing programs have) to specify that the headphones are on say the right side of the line out and that the left side of line out is the active audio out?
and/or, what is a good USB audio out device that would work well under Ubuntu and with Ultramixer?
Well I got a SIIG Soundwave 7.1 Pro USB device.
It seems to work great under Linux with UltraMixer.
Now I just need to figure out how map the hardware volume/mute keys on the device differently than the laptop volume/mute. Right now they both control the “active” mixer. I want them to control the onboard or USB mixer depending on which keys I press. But that is a very minor thing.
that sounds cool tough. Did you need some special drivers for the sound device?
Suse 10.2 automatically configured it as the 2nd audio device and added the correct module (snd_usb_audio) for me.
All I did was plug it in and start up ultramixer. Nothing else was required.
Thank you for the information.
