May I know what's that Pulse plugin that will make it work with Gizmo?
Honestly, the reason why I don't use Pulse is that using Pulse makes me feel like I am not using PCLinuxOS anymore.
Until such time that Tex will make it default, they I may consider it.
There is no plugin for Gizmo5 to facilitate it working with PulseAudio ....... unlike most other apps -- in fact all others that I have tried to date.
Maybe the reason is because Gizmo5 is rather in limbo presently since being taken over by Google.
There seems to be some misconceptions out there about PulseAudio. I regard it like this.
PA is a user interface ---- a very nice and configurable user interface --- which allows the users to determine how the sound source is treated and routed.
The same hardware is there.
The same Alsa drivers are used.
Pulse makes all of the hardware components of the sound system visible to the user, and allows the user to determine which is to be used for what sound source.
In its simplest form, it will allow me to play three different songs in three separate instances of VLC player, and have those three separate sound sources routed to three different 'sinks' ..... for instance to
2. Wireless headset
3. USB speakers
or any other sound 'sink' that may be attached to the PC.
Same thing applies to Microphones ..... they also can be directed to wherever the user chooses.
While controlling all those sources of sound, the user can record any one of them .... again using the PA controls, or any combination of them with a little preparation.
The sources do not even have to be sent to a hardware sink to be recorded! They can be sent to a virtual sink and recorded from there.
It is THE most useful sound utility I have ever seen in Linux or Windows .... bar none!
It gives the user control of all the hardware attached to the PC.
I have attached a pic which illustrates how all the hardware functions of my sound card are exposed for me to make a choice which to use. That is the real power of PA IMO.
