But I’d like to use the main sound device (HDMI output) for the rest of the system and the other emulators. Ideas welcomed!
Background: The sound quality is horribly glitchy in LinApple. But I have made an Apple Piie using an Apple //e case, including its speaker. For //e emulation, my aim is to connect the sound card output to the existing Apple //e speaker. I’m told by the dev of LinApple that using a USB sound card fixes the glitchy sound provided by the Pi.
I wanted to switch because the quality of the Apple //e speaker is horribly bad for emulators like MAME which I’d rather go through HDMI sound, but it’s beautifully bad when emulating the actual Apple //e 😉
The quality of the USB sound card sadly only improves the actual audio quality a tiny bit. Not even 10%. I wouldn’t bother frankly – I just wanted the option. Mind you the sound card was under $5 on Amazon 😀
I am disappointed with so many aspects of Pi emulation that I’m now working towards replacing it with a Wii running Homebrew Channel and their emulators instead. 🙁
I completely disagree with this, the usb sound card completely removes all the distortion and feedback experienced via the standard phono from the pi…if I was you I would replace the speaker in the Apple..
