How can I use audio on AlphaStations and DECstations?


There are a few options for playing audio on Alpha systems. Most
workstations come with 8-kHz mono audio I/O hardware that is enabled
by configuring the bba (base board audio) device in the kernel.
The Sound & Motion J300 a/v TURBOchannel option card also has audio
hardware that support programmable sample rates from 8kHz to 48kHz
stereo.

Two software packages are available to drive audio on Alpha systems:

MME implements a Microsoft-style API and comes bundled with OSF/1.

AF, developed at the Digital Cambridge Research Laboratory,
runs on a wide range of platforms including DECstation, Alpha, Sun,
SGI, and HP. It is available in source form from:
