Creative \Ensoniq SB PCI-128 Question

By SWLChris ·
I have an interesting situation here, has been dsocumented somewhat in blog I have on here.
I have searched everywhere I can think of for a tip but haven't seen one.
This is the question.
The sound chipset in question is a Creative\Ensoniq ES1371 onboard sound.
In Windows is identified as an Ensoniq PCI Audio.
In Linux it is identified as an ES1371 .
In Windows XP Professional as well as Windows 2000 this onboard soundchip can use 4 different drivers, and each has it's own features.
Currently I am using the Creative SB128 drivers which allows usage of the spatial effects and also allows for tonal control of the sound.
Now in Linux,specifically Alsa well as OSS, I can achieve the spatial effect .
What I can't seem to find is any sort of driver module that allows for the seperate bass and treble.
The Alsa uses the snd-en1371 module and from hat I have seen I can't modify it ,or else I missed something.
Has anyone been able to duplicate the Creative bass and treble controls in an Alsa or OSS driver?

Have you tried the emu10k1 drivers?

they might work and have separated treble and bass.

Kind regards,

When Creative bought the Ensoniq company they provided Linux Drivers at the time have you tried downloading Creative's Drivers for that Sound Card?

Are you using the desktop mixers or have you
tried alsamixer or alsamixergui ?

If bass and treble control is a recognized
feature in the driver, the controls will appear
in the alsamixer and alsamixergui.
