The kernel first tries to allocate 32bit memory for the soundfont. We appreciate that this bug may be old and you might not be interested in discussing it any more. Creative Labs SB Audi And if replacing that is not an option which it isn’t for meI’d say that the kernel should really provide better mechanisms to allocate the right memory.

Look, obviously the kernel has to copy over the sound font from user memory to kernel memory anyhow – simply because the user memory where awelib initially loads the sound font into is released by the Os as soon as the program is unloaded. Creative Labs SB Audigy rev 03 It has no other drawbacks, i.

I can load more than 16Mb soundfont into my sb live! The ROM sound font gurom. Phones by Jessica Dolcourt Dec 5, To make matters worse, the rear channel Op-Amp was of the inverting variety without being treated as such, leaving the rear speakers out of phase with the front, requiring switchover. Harald Judt hjudt wrote on Compressing Audio Data Until then, see The above hack does the trick, and it doesn’t affect stability, but it changes the DMA zones of course – and just doing that for a single card might not be a good argument.


For the connection between MIDI ports, specify the port address of the program after the program name. BySound Blaster cards had sold over 15 million units worldwide and accounted for seven out of ten sound card sales. You are not directly subscribed to this bug’s notifications.

Perhaps the OSS developers were right. Companies started in Revolvy Brain revolvybrain. We break it down. There are two addressing modes, where first supports 32 MB space in 2 GB memory and pages this is default mode.

I don’t quite understand your comment. Raymond superquad-vortex2 wrote on It is not exactly the same as the emu10k1 midi, and – if you ask me – is of emu10k quality.

There seem to be plans on the LKLM to address this, but it’s unclear how long this eu10k1 take – after all, the complete kernel page allocator must be re-structured to fix this. Manufactured in a 0. Given that this value is intended for broken PCI hardware, and the emu10k1 does fall into that category, could the argument be made that halving it would make it apply more broadly? I believe I reported this problem already several years ago, and it was basically ignored or the patch wasn’t accepted.

More than ten years and this bug is still around and biting me. August saw the introduction of the EMU10K1 audio processor. The goal being to load large soundfonts without breaking memory allocation by limiting how much the emu10k1 can load into memory and caching the rest to another memory location faster than to disk. If you do not have an external MIDI keyboard connected to your sound card, use the virtual keyboard vkeybd. ALSA playback test through plughw: Other bug subscribers Subscribe someone else.

Because I do not believe they will care about 1 or 2 pieces of hardware that will eventually fade into history on all new non-PCI systems The emu10k1 reaches the 30 bit address space just fine, as my all-day experience tells me. Creative Technology topic Creative Technology Ltd. I have tried the small “2L” change by Thomas Richter and it works fine, no negative side effects so far. Creative acquired Ensoniq in and, as part of the deal, made use of this highly-compatible ISA sound card emulator with their newer cards.
