Dell Latitude CSx H
w/ ESS Maestro 2E chip

When sndconfig is run, & the sample plays, it sounds very distorted.  
However the same sample played from command line is fine (as are other 
sounds). lsmod output is the same before & after a sndconfig (see below).

lsmod output:

Distorted in what way?

Also, how are you playing it from the commandline later
where it works?
Comment 2 Dan Taylor 2000-08-15 10:07:30 EDT
It is distorted in that it sounds more like someone playing a heavy metal 
guitar as opposed to someone speaking :).  Very, very scratchy & distorted.

[root@localhost sndconfig]# play sample.au
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2000-08-15 11:36:24 EDT
Aha, we need to use sox in sndconfig as opposed to just throwing
the data at /dev/audio.

Fixed in CVS, will be in sndconfig-0.56-1.
