#9286 assigned enhancement

MediaPreferences: enhancement about audio sources/inputs

Reported by: Giova84 Owned by: nobody

Component: Preferences/Media Version: R1/alpha4.1

Description

I'd like to suggest an enhancement in the MediaPreferences, about the "Input" tab, where we can choose Audio sources/inputs. Currently, on my system (just for example) i can choose Front, Rear, Center/Sub and Speaker as audio input (yes: is a multichannel audio card), but most of them are useless, because doesn't produce any audio signal. But in anyway the aim of this ticket is the ability to record "what you hear", so, in that way, every audio signal from the Line out can be recorded. (i remember as example my old Win 98 system with soundblaster audio card, where i could do exactly this).

Mockup image attached.

Is this HDA panel different in Linux or Windows? Can you select "what you hear" as a recording source?

I was talking of when i was using Windows 98, about 11 years ago :-) In anyway In Windows 98, as i've said, in the system mixer i was able to choose as audio input "what you hear", so every audio signal from line out was routed as signal input. But in anyway i see that this option should be available for Windows 7 too (but i don't know if it works at the same way) http://minorshill.co.uk/pc2/meters.html#what

I'm talking about the soundcard you're using at the moment, does Windows or Linux offer this feature on it through the input source panel?

Oops! Sorry! In anyway on this pc i have only Haiku installed. But i can try with a Linux live cd.

Are you asking this to me because on certain audio cards, Haiku offers this feature?

Yes it's a hardware source choice for recording

For example: on Windows using Nero Wave Editor we can select the "wave mapper" as input source. This was a software made, soundcard independent future. With this, we can record the sound what we hear. And this can be done with the Audacity too. I think this works on this way: media player -> media service ("wave mapper") -> sound card output. So, the programs connect to the media service, and get the same sound as the sound card.

That was exactly what i meant! A software feature independently by hardware (like was with my old cheap SoundBlaster on Windows 98).

Milestone: R1Unscheduled
Owner: changed from anevilyak to nobody
Status: newassigned

In any case, what the mockup shows is an autogenerated panel based on the hardware features proposed by the audio card (as other OS do). This is certainly not the place for a software feature.

Hi Korli, the aim of mockup is to show how this feature could be enabled :-)
