DESCRIPTION

The snd_uaudio driver provides support for USB audio class devices and USB MIDI class devices.

BUGS

The PCM framework in
.Fx only supports synchronous device detach. That means all mixer and DSP character devices belonging to a given USB audio device must be closed when receiving an error on a DSP read, a DSP write or a DSP IOCTL request. Else the USB audio driver will wait for this to happen, preventing enumeration of new devices on the parenting USB controller.

Some USB audio devices might refuse to work properly unless the sample rate is configured the same for both recording and playback, even if only simplex is used. See the dev.pcm.%d.[play|rec].vchanrate sysctls.

The PCM framework in
.Fx currently doesn’t support the full set of USB audio mixer controls. Some mixer controls are only available as dev.pcm.%d.mixer sysctls.
