Hi Lance,

Whether you access the device through JACK or ALSA,
it is possible to record two or more channels of sound
from Ecasound, and later apply volume and pan effects
to the playback.

You can do this using Ecasound's interactive command
language (by starting Ecasound with the -c flag),
command-line syntax, or chain setup files. You can also use
a high-level application like Tkeca or Nama to tickle
Ecasound as appropriate.
