View Full Version : [ubuntu] A few question about my sound card

March 29th, 2009, 01:37 AM
Hi, i bought a genius 5.1 PCI audio card last month, and it works perfectly.
Whan i open my sound settings, ubuntu detects my sound card as C-Media CMI8738.
I can see a lot of stuff there:

- Master
- Sint.
- Line In
- CD
- Phone
- Pc Speaker
- Aux

My question is:
What are the sint, Phone and aux for?

It seems a very specialiced sound card you have.

Sint. is to plug in a sinthesizer (that piano-like instrument).
Phone is to plug in an old vinyl player.
Aux. to plug in almost whatever you like.

Great! i bought that sound card becaus the guy told me that was a nice sound card. A few weeks ago i mount and studio with my sound card and some portastudio and it sounds really nice!
thanx for the info man! Maybe i get a vinyl player sometime! :popcorn:
