I have an AMD64 XP3500+ system running opensolaris (actually, it's Nevada build 88). I've installed OSS build 1015 and audacity among other things.
Everything seems to load properly. I have been testing recording via the digital inputs on an M-Audio Delta DiO 2496 (envy24 driver). I can hear the input being passed to the output and it sounds fine. Unfortunately, when I try to playback the audio, it plays extremely quickly and sounds like noise. The .wav file looks fine, though. I can even take it to another system and play it there. The problem there is, though, that it sounds a bit warbly. I don't understand how that can be. I've tried recording digltal-in with both the Coax and optical inputs with the same results.
I've tried playing with the settings in ossxmix and I've tried recording at 96KHz as well as 44.1KHz with the same results.
So, two questions:
1. Any thoughts on what might be my playback problem on this system?
2. Any thoughts on why the resulting .wav file sounds "warbly" when played back anywhere else? The "warbliness" isn't terrible, but it's definitely noticeable.

Try ossplay and see if it makes a difference. I've had problems in the past in terms of OSS compatibility with applications which rely on gstreamer which in turn rely on the SUn audio system which is emulated by opensound. The idea situation will be once OpenSound is merged and Gstreamer is compiled against opensound.

B. There is an envy24_nfrags setting (The envy24 driver man page explains it) which might help with the recording issue. I'm not sure where on Solaris it can be added so the driver will notice (see manpage, I guess).
C. What's the output of ossmix?
D. The 4.1 version has some envy24 fixes not in 4.0 yet, but nothing that I know which is directly related to the recording, so I doubt it will help.

I wonder if that could help.
