+alsa-tools includes card-specific tools for various soundcards,
+including firmware loaders for pcmcia and USB devices.
+This package includes the firmware as well as the loaders (so there's
+no need for a separate alsa-firmware package like Debian has).
+This build includes udev rules for the Tascam US-122, US-224, and US-428
+USB audio interfaces (which replace the old hotplug scripts shipped
+with the alsa-tools source). Also included is the SlackBuild author's
+"tascam-us122-HOWTO" document (see /usr/doc/alsa-tools-$VERSION).
+Included tools:
+ac3dec - simple AC3 stream decoder
+as10k1 - assembler for the emu10k1 DSP chip present in Creative soundcards
+cspctl - Sound Blaster 16 ASP/CSP control program
+dl10k1 - loads dumps previously created with lo10k1 & ld10k1
+echomixer - Linux equivalent of the Echoaudio console application
+envy24control - Control tool for Envy24 (ice1712) based soundcards
+extract_ac3 - extract AC3 streams from VOB files
+hdspconf - GUI to control the Hammerfall HDSP Alsa Settings
+hdsploader - firmware loader for the RME Hammerfall DSP cards
+hdspmixer - Linux equivalent of the Totalmix application from RME
+hwmixvolume - hardware mixer control for cards using hardware mixing
+init_audigy, init_audigy_eq10, init_live - initialize Creative cards
+ld10k1 - dump patches stored in an EMU10K1/EMU10K2 card
+ld10k1d - daemon for lo10k1
+lo10k1 - EMU10K1 (EMU10K2) patch loader for ALSA
+mixartloader - Firmware loader for Digigram miXart soundcards
+pcxhrloader - Firmware loader for Digigram pcxhr compatible soundcards
+qlo10k1 - GUI for loading patches on EMU10K1/EMU10K2 cards
+rmedigicontrol - control tool for RME Digi32 and RME Digi96 soundcards
+sbiload - OPL2/3 FM instrument loader for ALSA hwdep
+sscape_ctl - ALSA SoundScape control utility
+us428control - Tascam US-428 control surface daemon
+usx2yloader - 2nd Phase Firmware loader for Tascam USX2Y USB soundcards
+vxloader - Firmware loader for Digigram VX soundcards
+One of the tools (qlo10k1) uses Qt3. If you need this tool, install qt3,
+and pass QT3=yes in the environment for alsa-tools.SlackBuild.
+This requires fltk.
