I've been watching this thread for a while, and occasionally trying
out new builds, as I have an original PCI X-Fi emu20k1.
Everyone else seems to be reporting decent successes, but I have never
managed it myself.

Playing back sound files at any sample-rate results in a repeating
burst of static. Adjusting the period/buffer parameters to aplay will
cause the pitch/tone of the static burst to change, but never turn
into anything remotely like the desired sound.

I'm running this on a 64-bit system (Ubuntu 8.04 with a custom
compiled kernel). Is anyone else having success on this platform?


Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer
Things fall apart; the center cannot hold
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world
