Not able to play two different sampled audio simultaneously using two different devices using cs42888-audio

​I am using yocto build setup and trying to play audio using inbuilt audio card cs42888-audio. Doing aplay -l list the capability of audio cards as below:

root@imx6qsabreauto:~# aplay -l

**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****

card 0: cs42888audio [cs42888-audio], device 0: HiFi cs42888-0 []

  Subdevices: 1/1

  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

card 0: cs42888audio [cs42888-audio], device 1: HiFi-ASRC-FE (*) []

  Subdevices: 1/1

  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

card 2: imxhdmisoc [imx-hdmi-soc], device 0: i.MX HDMI Audio Tx hdmi-hifi-0 []

  Subdevices: 1/1

  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

As it is clear that card 0 have two audio devices 0 and 1. I want to play 48khz stereo audio through hw:0,0 and 16khz mono audio through hw:0,1. But they are not playing in parallel.

The problem is that if i am playing any one of two audio and start playing second audio; first audio stops playing and 2nd audio starts. But I expect mixed audio to be heard.

I tried changing asound.conf file (used dmix and plug alsa plugin) and added virtual device with desired configuration but parallel playback failed. Though, I am able to play two audio through same device in parallel.

Hi igor,

Can you explain your assumption?

Hi Hare

seems this is not possible as cs42888 has one clock (frame and bit) for

all channels.

Best regards

igor
