NAME
     cmpci -- C-Media CMI8x38 audio device driver

SYNOPSIS
     cmpci* at pci? dev ? function ?
     audio* at audiobus?
     mpu*   at cmpci?
     opl*   at cmpci? flags 1

DESCRIPTION
     The cmpci device driver supports C-Media CMI8x38 based sound cards.

     The device has SPDIF input/output interfaces, 16bit CODEC with analog
     mixer, OPL3 FM Synthesizer, and MPU401 compatible MIDI I/O port inter-
     face.

MIXER DEVICE
     The mixer device of cmpci driver can be accessed via mixerctl(1) command.
     The complex structure is analyzed as follows.

     Note the 2nd SPDIF input exists only on CMI8738/PCI-6ch versions.

MIXER EXAMPLES
     Here are examples about wave playback and SPDIF input/output ports.

     Playback to speaker, SPDIF input to SPDIF output
              mixerctl -w playback.mode=dac spdif.output=spdin
              spdif.monitor=off

     Playback to SPDIF output, SPDIF input to speaker
              mixerctl -w playback.mode=spdif spdif.output=playback
              spdif.output.playback=wave spdif.monitor=spdin

     SPDIF input to both SPDIF output and speaker
              mixerctl -w spdif.output=spdin spdif.monitor=spdin

     Playback to both SPDIF output and speaker
              mixerctl -w playback.mode=spdif spdif.output=playback
              spdif.output.playback=wave spdif.monitor=spdout

     Mix playback and SPDIF input to speaker
              mixerctl -w playback.mode=dac spdif.monitor=spdin

HISTORY
     The cmpci device driver appeared in NetBSD 1.5.

BUGS
     4ch/6ch playback is not yet available.  Joystick port is not supported.

     spdif.output.playback=legacy does not seem to work properly.

NetBSD 6.0                       June 22, 2005                      NetBSD 6.0
