In more ways than one. Does it still not check the return value of
write()ing to /dev/dsp? That's a "fun" bug.
The other thing to check is case noise/interference. Don't let
non-appearance in MS-Windows fool you into complacency.
Oh, on audio in general I highly recommend getting good headphones.
I have a pair of Roland RH-50's I got thrown in with my Yamaha P120s -
the range is excellent and they take a bit if beating
*cough*damndefaultvolumesettofullblast*cough*. The gold contacts fit
well with the gold contacts on the back of my AWE64 - so good, in fact,
I do hear case noise through the headphones :/
