This is an alternative to the Synth capture switch. This control is only useful if your soundcard has a wavetable synthesizer connected to the CSB such as a CS If you never have the need to switch the channels individually, this won’t be a problem for you. First, let’s get some elementary stuff out of the way. You must turn on the sound support soundcore module.

Most modern distros come with soundcore compiled as a module. As mentioned above, gnome-volume-control automatically mutes some controls when its fader is reduced to zero, forcing you to manually unmute them later. And even then it won’t be useful until the day when if?

Unmute Digital Loopback and Master Digital, and initially set their faders fairly high. If you are capturing analog inputs and wish to monitor the digital audio being recorded, you would mute the analog inputs and unmute Digital Loopback.

The music will be scratchy and have a “ringing” sound to it if the anti-aliasing filter is badly designed and if the channels audioo swapped, pressing the left shift key will play the flipper sound on the right channel and vice-versa.

Would this be at least somewhat compatible with early-mid ’90s DOS games? Block Diagram Here is a simplified block diagram showing the way the various mixer controls inside the CSB relate to each other: However, it is best to mute unused inputs when making a recording — ccs4236b sense in saving that hiss for posterity.

ALSA supports such a wavetable. Controls the input level for the digital data coming in via the ISA bus, usually from a an application that plays audio such as aplay. It also allows you to do some things that maybe you ought not to. Although they use the same driver, the CSB is more than a minor revision of the CS, which had no capture mixer or wavetable input.


This method of recording lets you hear the actual digital audio that is being sent to your recording application, allowing you to hear if any distortion is occurring. Controls the input level for the analog input typically connected to a CD drive.

The mix of inputs that you hear should be the same as what will be recorded unless you have turned on one or more Capture Bypass switches or Mic Boost.

CS4236B Mixer

Retrieved from ” https: The options line allows you to set various configuration options before the audoo is loaded. If you audo so lucky, the levels won’t be high enough to make the distortion obvious, and only later when you are listening closely xs4236b your recording will you notice that things sound a bit tinny. If you are familiar with mixers in general and came here looking for specifics, feel free to skip ahead.

The faders may be duplicated on a “Capture” view, but you are better off using the “Playback” view because the duplicate faders don’t actually work in some mixer apps.

This is an alternative to the Synth capture switch. Leaving unused inputs unmuted could increase the background hiss slightly, but you may not even notice it during casual listening. But since you cannot hear the actual audio that will be recorded, it is important to pay close attention to the level meters on your recording application.


All hail the Great Capacitor Brand Finder. This will allow you to cs4236n your modules at boot time.

If you never have the need to switch the channels individually, this won’t be a problem for you. The sbiload utility in the alsa-tools package acts as a roadie for the FM synthesizer. Listen for a tinniness effect being added to the sound. I always stay away from them when I plan to do DOS stuff.

Unmuting Master Digital sends the audio to the analog output mixer. They merely set the levels temporarily to zero without moving the indicators and restore them to the indicated level when unmuted. All five faders that appear in the “Capture” view are duplicates of faders in the “Playback” view.

Having had everything from the Tandy to modern systems, I’d probably suggest avoiding all sound cards that are not the Creative Labs cards or the GUS until you get to PCI sound cards, by which all PCI soundcards are terrible for DOS, if you even have a way to enable them under DOS, it typically consumes memory and then getting the game to work is difficult. Both sides combine to give an overall range of Controls the input level for the analog input typically connected to a “Mic” jack.
