Yeah, I agree with your concerns. I always use non-onboard cards with
mixing where I can. I don't want to be downgraded to software mixing in
cases. I do think they should find a way to disable it for cards that do
what cards support hardware mixing? .. from what I know of alsa it doesn't
support hardware mixing of multiple streams of audio. Thats why dmix should
be enabled by default.
On the flip side, I am very happy to see dmix come long to replace
that is artsd and esd.
artsd and esd are for network transparent audio still. that issue is still
