It shouldn't be broken in any mode, as far as we've heard, if you're hearing bugs, I'd love to hear about them.
Well, I've reported it already, but here we go again:
It's pretty simple. My dual P3-933 can play audio on my Audigy (with the least broken drivers, not even sure whose fault it is, Creative or MS, tend to go with former due history) perfectly when booting up in single CPU mode, but as soon I go back into multiprocessor
mode, I get heavy glitching, skipping and last but not least pauses, as if it didn't get the data to the card on time.
And when the Creative drivers break again, it sounds like there'd be a problem with memory offset or endianness. Which is strange, because things work peachy when playing back via KS instead of DSound. KS works fine in single and multi mode, no matter what
driver version or how broken DirectSound is in it. Considering that due the rewrite, everything KS seems to go more or less the same path as DSound, something must be really broken in beta 1.
--edit: vvvv Get Foobar 2000 0.8, set the KS plugin as output and choose 32bit depth. Should play just fine. I get the same issues on DSound, except in single CPU mode with certain drivers, but I dont want to leave one of my CPUs run idle.
