Description Nicholas Miell 2004-09-13 00:26:49 UTC
Summary says it all.

Any platform that supports PCI can potentially use a soundcard that
requires the loading of SoundFonts. AMD64 is one of them.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2004-09-13 16:22:52 UTC
AWE cards are ISA. Unless there's some new one I haven't heard about.

Comment 2 Nicholas Miell 2004-09-13 21:55:28 UTC
My SoundBlaster PCI 512 requires sfxload to load SoundFonts for the
MIDI sequencer to be useful. I think all of the other emu10k1 based
cards do as well.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2004-09-13 22:15:03 UTC

awesfx as it is builts now probably doesn't even work on ALSA, much
less x86-64.

Comment 4 Nicholas Miell 2004-09-13 22:34:22 UTC
I'm using it with ALSA on AMD64 right now. It works fine. (sfxload,

AFAIK, there is no native SoundFont loader for ALSA, but the OSS
emulation works.

Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2004-09-13 22:49:56 UTC
If you remove snd-seq-oss does it work? (I'd assume not.)

Comment 6 Nicholas Miell 2004-09-13 23:15:15 UTC
It works fine. snd-seq-oss gets autoloaded when sfxload opens
/dev/sequencer, thanks to the defaults in /etc/modprobe.conf.dist

Comment 7 Nicholas Miell 2005-02-09 23:06:44 UTC
awesfx 0.5.0d comes with asfxload, which loads SoundFonts using ALSA.
