Does db help with live processing or delayed processing?
rtnull seems to require a 1024 buffer and only a 1024 buffer. much less,
and it whines about underruns. much over and it skips audio.
ecasound -a:1,2 -i /tmp/in.raw -a:1 -o rtnull -a:2 -o /tmp/out.raw -c
ops, forgot to reset buffersize
Now when we have this sequence, rtnull no longer seems to exist. Data goes
also after doing a cs-set, it seems one must do a cs-connect, the na
start, because when you do a cs-connect, it stops all output and doesn't
remember that output was going before you did the connect. :(
