That tends to make most of my posts as short and direct as possible.
If I came across poorly then please accept my apology.
When I was developing the HDAudio driver, I didn't even notice the lack of mixer support.
Because I use an external line mixer to combine all my audio sources, I just didn't miss it.
The HDAudio chip in the X1000 simply does not have any mixing ability. It's not a lack of
software, but simply a design change for these audio chips.
Since HDAudio is the "new standard", it is likely that most new devices will not support
Don't get me wrong, it's a pretty amazing chip: If we supported every feature, it could
have 7.1 channel audio, PLUS a separate stereo pair, and up to TWO stereo inputs
recording, all at the same time. But there is no ability to mix anything at the chip level.
I'd like to add a digital loopback at some future time, which would APPEAR
to be a single input selector with a volume control.
This is not as flexible as a mixer, but as long as you don't listen to more than
one source at a time, it should suffice.
I will not make any promises about when I might get around to it though, right now
I have a LOT of things in front of me with a higher priority than that one.
