DESCRIPTIONThis tool is mainly for testing whether a given soundcard works with the zita-alsa-pcmi library. It will send the 1st two channels of the given capture device to the playback device, using the specified settings.
Note, that this might give massive (ear and equipment damaging) feedback if your capture device is connected to a microphone near some speakers connected to the playback device.
- ALSA playback device (e.g.: hw:0)
- ALSA capture device (e.g.: hw:0)
- Sample rate (e.g.: 48000)
- Period size (e.g.: 256)
- Number of fragments (e.g.: 2)
EXAMPLESThis will loopback the 1st two channels of hw:0 to hw:1 using 48kHz samplerate, and 10 fragments each 2048 samples.
