-Documentation for the SoundPro CMI8330 extensions in the WSS driver (ad1848.o)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-( Be sure to read Documentation/sound/oss/CMI8330 too )

-(derived from the OPL3-SA2 documentation by Scott Murray)
-
-The SoundPro CMI8330 (ISA) is a chip usually found on some Taiwanese
-motherboards. The official name in the documentation is CMI8330, SoundPro
-is the nickname and the big inscription on the chip itself.
-
-The chip emulates a WSS as well as a SB16, but it has certain differences
-in the mixer section which require separate support. It also emulates an
-MPU401 and an OPL3 synthesizer, so you probably want to enable support
-for these, too.
-
-The chip identifies itself as an AD1848, but its mixer is significantly
-more advanced than the original AD1848 one. If your system works with
-either WSS or SB16 and you are having problems with some mixer controls
-(no CD audio, no line-in, etc), you might want to give this driver a try.
-Detection should work, but it hasn't been widely tested, so it might still
-mis-identify the chip. You can still force soundpro=1 in the modprobe
-parameters for ad1848. Please let me know if it happens to you, so I can
-adjust the detection routine.
-
-The chip is capable of doing full-duplex, but since the driver sees it as an
-AD1848, it cannot take advantage of this. Moreover, the full-duplex mode is
-not achievable through the WSS interface, b/c it needs a dma16 line which is
-assigned only to the SB16 subdevice (with isapnp). Windows documentation
-says the user must use WSS Playback and SB16 Recording for full-duplex, so
-it might be possible to do the same thing under Linux. You can try loading
-up both ad1848 and sb then use one for playback and the other for
-recording. I don't know if this works, b/c I haven't tested it. Anyway, if
-you try it, be very careful: the SB16 mixer *mostly* works, but certain
-settings can have unexpected effects. Use the WSS mixer for best results.
-
-There is also a PCI SoundPro chip. I have not seen this chip, so I have
-no idea if the driver will work with it. I suspect it won't.
-
-As with PnP cards, some configuration is required. There are two ways
-of doing this. The most common is to use the isapnptools package to
-initialize the card, and use the kernel module form of the sound
-subsystem and sound drivers. Alternatively, some BIOS's allow manual
-configuration of installed PnP devices in a BIOS menu, which should
-allow using the non-modular sound drivers, i.e. built into the kernel.
-Since in this latter case you cannot use module parameters, you will
-have to enable support for the SoundPro at compile time.
-
-The IRQ and DMA values can be any that are considered acceptable for a
-WSS. Assuming you've got isapnp all happy, then you should be able to
-do something like the following (which *must* match the isapnp/BIOS
-configuration):
-
-modprobe ad1848 io=0x530 irq=11 dma=0 soundpro=1
--and maybe-
-modprobe sb io=0x220 irq=5 dma=1 dma16=5
-
--then-
-modprobe mpu401 io=0x330 irq=9
-modprobe opl3 io=0x388
-
-If all goes well and you see no error messages, you should be able to
-start using the sound capabilities of your system. If you get an
-error message while trying to insert the module(s), then make
-sure that the values of the various arguments match what you specified
-in your isapnp configuration file, and that there is no conflict with
-another device for an I/O port or interrupt. Checking the contents of
-/proc/ioports and /proc/interrupts can be useful to see if you're
-butting heads with another device.
-
-If you do not see the chipset version message, and none of the other
-messages present in the system log are helpful, try adding 'debug=1'
-to the ad1848 parameters, email me the syslog results and I'll do
-my best to help.
-
-Lastly, if you're using modules and want to set up automatic module
-loading with kmod, the kernel module loader, here is the section I
-currently use in my conf.modules file:
-
-# Sound
-post-install sound modprobe -k ad1848; modprobe -k mpu401; modprobe -k opl3
-options ad1848 io=0x530 irq=11 dma=0
-options sb io=0x220 irq=5 dma=1 dma16=5
-options mpu401 io=0x330 irq=9
-options opl3 io=0x388
-
-The above ensures that ad1848 will be loaded whenever the sound system
-is being used.
-
-Good luck.

-NOT REALLY TESTED:
-- recording
-- recording device selection
-- full-duplex
-
-TODO:
-- implement mixer support for surround, loud, digital CD switches.
-- come up with a scheme which allows recording volumes for each subdevice.
-This is a major OSS API change.
