Hmm, if I understood right, pci128's 44099 does still mean 44100...?
I hope other soundcard manufactures don't have similar habits
(of course 12345 means 22050 samples per second! :)) Of course you
could set the internal sample rate to 44099, but I don't know how
useful the resulting 44099 samples/sec wav files are. ;)

Well, yesterday I spent the whole day working on ecasound and eventually
got it to compile... but as expected: no sound. Aarggh! It appears
to work normally, but something in the signal chain mutes everything
that passes by. Oh well, I'll start debugging it today. Otherwise
things look rather good. All effect/dsp code is now converted to
the new iterator-design. I still have to work on the new user/library
interface, but there shouldn't be any big problems (=just lots
of trivial coding). If all goes as planned (I can fix the mute-bug
today), I might be able to release the first dev-version of 1.6.0
in a week or so.
