I have a pretty fresh installation of FC3. When I use the Soundcard detection
menu option in FC3 - the card is detected and the sample sound plays fine.
MIDI files play fine.
When I use the command line utility 'play' - the sounds come out very garbled
and over amplified.
What's odd, is the exact same sound file played on a second system here, with
the same version of FC3 works perfectly. Both systems have the same sound
The card is seen in hwconf identically on both machines:

Now... here's something that I think may be related.
If I pull up volume control, the box that works has more columns to adjust.
The working system has Line, Line-In As Bass, Line-In as Read, MicAsCenter/LFE.
The non-working system does not have the Line-In As Bass or the MicAsCenter.
We both use an identical 2-speakers + subwoofer (center).
I have tried deleting the entry in hwconf and reconfiguring at boot up. This
does not help.
It's 3:30, why aren't you at work?
I.. I didn't feel like it.
