in my asound.conf i added a pcm.dmixer and added these options:
Then i added a pcm.!default pcm.dmixer line.
Now they play! What's even better is that i actually seems to be
*upsampling*! Regular old 16/44.1 flac files have a lot more detail.
Listening to them with the dmixer set up that way i can hear performers
breathing. It's not a subtle difference. I asked my partner to come into the
room and listen (with out telling her what i was switching off/on and she said
"Wow! That one sounds so much more alive!" This is something that is
normally reserved for multi-thousand dollar cd players and i'm doing it for
nothing! I love you Alsa!
My avi movie files loose sound when i have the pcm.dmixer on, but big deal. i
can just uncomment that default line and save the file. I've got the file open
via screen+emacs so no big deal.
