The following patches adds support for the M-Audio Fast Track C400.
I recently bought this device and I was able to get this work thanks to
the discussion on the alsa-devel list.
This series applies against the latest mainline tree, 3.7-rc4
(HEAD 3d70f8c617a436c7146ecb81df2265b4626dfe89 )
This is v2 of the series. It adds patches #3 and #8.
* First of all, everything works: mixer controls, effects control,
playback and capture (with the correct sampling frequency set).
Note that the device doesn't really have a master control or left/right
pan. It's just "emulated" in the software.
* Audio in/out seems to work good in v2, mainly because the
playback is an implicit feedback endpoint, and it is now configured
with the capture endpoint as its sync-buddy (patch #8).
* Also needed to correct the calculation for implicit feedback, because
of the different channel numbers between the two endpoints on the C400
(6 playback - implicit feedback, 4 capture) (patch #3).
* The clock sources are still named "Unit 129" (0x81, internal) and
"Unit 130" (0x82, SPDIF). I'll fix this later. I also plan to fix the
channel names (i.e., instead of "AIn3", use "SPDIF In L").
* I've touched one FTU mixer creation function. I'd appreciate if someone
can test this with the FTU to make sure I didn't break something.
* Patches #6 and #7 are not ready to go in. Patch #6 employs a crude
hack and misuses cmask. Patch #7 follows suit. I'd appreciate some
hints on how to do this properly.
(It's theoretically possible to use cmask properly, but cmasks must be
a 64 bits type, because we have 10 input * 6 output = 60 paths).
Grant, I mentioned just now that I get distorted playback. This was caused
by me using an lower bandwidth altsetting (2), which I tried since it
gives only 2 playback channels, figuring it might help latency somehow.
I now reverted back to the original alsetting (1) and I seem to get a
stable latency and I can't hear anything unusual (yet?). jack_delay seems
to be happy as well.
