@bloodline

the most likely reason why SB cards can't encode mp3 in hardware is that it would require a licence from Fraunhofer dev labs. The Audigy series packs anough punch to do whatever encoding you need, in hardware.

I look at the bright side. I've been complaining about this job for ages, so I need a lil' kick in the arse to get a new one!  :-D  :-D  :-D

No idea.
A couple that I know get around 9000 SEK ( 661£ ) a month, but it's dependant on circumstances, so I really don't know.

No kids... They have a cat, though I don't get any money for feeding it.

Sure the Live! comes with Windoze software to encode MP3's but the card does not do it in hardware!!!
The Live! card is just a bunch of DACs and ADCs with a DSP for adding effects, it's not designed to encode mp3s


even if so, who gives a crap, it can still do it!!!!!
there seems to be enough technology on the card to handle it



Nice hardware. I have one too. Still doesn't make it encode MP3 IN the hardware. ALl the tools is just software, and only a couple of 'em depend upon the Live! card to do their magic. MP3 encoding ain't one of 'em.

well under linux OSS the linux source driver does report to OSS that it supports hardware MPEG decoding.

there is also some stuff on the net that dabbles with the DSP and HW decoding of various sound file formats AC3, AAC, OGG etc.

@whabang
What are you asking about? encoding (audio -> mp3) or decoding (mp3 -> audio) ?
topic is about decoding, while in the text body you ask about encoding.. /me confused.

Anyway, I haven't heard of a soundcard with hardware mp3 encoding. Also decoding mp3 takes only few percent of CPU time so it's questionable if it makes sense to put this on custom hardware on a soundcard.

Yes, I don't have a clue about SBLive! ;-)

As I said, winamp 2.8 uses about 2-5% cpu time on my AMD K6 II 350. Really, mate don't worry about it  :-D
