The Xfi drivers don't appear to be particularly well documented. The Xfi/emu20k1 docs page on the Alsa homepage are blank!
Does anyone know if any part of my chain would be performing resampling. It would be pointless recording at 44.1 if either the Xfi or ALSA is just resampling down from 48khz, I might as well just record at 48khz in that case.
P.S. As a side note, I found that ALSA maps the left and right input channels the wrong way round. I have to setup a .asoundrc file to swap them back the right way
If that was a bug in alsa in general, it would have been discovered long time ago. It may be a bug of the xfi driver though, I doubt it has been tested extensively as not many people use this hardly supported card in linux.
I don't know why you would assume there isn't resampling. Test and see.
then I'm reasonably positive the card isn't doing any resampling.
Still, rather strange I'm first person to find this bug. Maybe others have come accross but never reported it.
