This resulted in getting a patch for kmix from upstream (its in Entropy now)
Then we looked at the default config. I repackaged pulseaudio (to give it a revision) and it will deploy the new config after you merge the config files.

Scratchy, glitchy sound
If you have an HDA-Intel device try turning up the PCM slider in the volume control. If PCM is set to 0 it makes the sound scratchy for some of those devices.
Otherwise if your sound is scratchy or stuttering you can edit these lines in the file /etc/pulse/daemon.conf to look like this
- Code: Select all
default-fragments = 5
There are also some sound cards/chips that can only be fixed with an ALSA upgrade so you may want to consider that if this does not work for you.
