The '-B' option is a special case as it does not set the buffering
parameters, but instead the buffering profile.
The buffering profile (/mode) is separate from the actual chainsetup
parameters. It is used when Ecasound has to determine optimal parameters
for a given chainsetup. Normally Ecasound makes the selection itself, but
this can be overridden by using '-B' (i.e. '-B:rt' -> use real-time
settings even if there are no real-time inputs/outputs).
Another option is to explicitly set all parameters and bypass all the
above. You then need to set: 1) buffersize (number,-b), 2) raised
priority (true/false,-r), 3) sched_priority (number,-r:X), 4) double
buffering (true/false,-z:db), 5) db-bufsize (number,-z:db,X), and 6) max
See ecasoundrc(5) and ecasound(1) for some more details.
