Multiple Sound Card Wizard improved text

May 23, 2023 — BarryK

It seems that some people are not using the Multiple Sound Card Wizard (MSCW) as intended. It is essential to test the sound, as this sets levels and unmutes for both pulseaudio and alsa. If you skip this step, sound may not work. Hence, there is now more explanation on the window:


...just a little change, but likely very helpful to newcomers.

Sometimes, although "Test Sound" attempts to set levels, for some audio hardware it doesn't work, and you have to go into "Configure..." and there is probably an extra level that can be brought up. So, "Test Sound" needs to produce an actual sound before you select it as the default device.
