- Hardware EQ (on AU8810 and AU8830).
- MPU401 uart midi.

    Great drivers. I’m teslting them with a Turtle Beach Montego II, and they sound great. I’m waiting on that cheap quad card to arrive in the mail. Other than that, the driver seems to be really stable and sounds crisp and clean. Hardware mixing and the EQ work perfectly, which is probably the best reason to own this card.

    Wasn’t a while ago someone made an OpenAL++ driver that does 3D sound? Why not use it (it’s in GPL)? Maybe the ALSA isn’t OpenAL compatible?
