Hi Walt,

this is great. There are so many KMIx bugreports with emu based soundcards.
So I am very glad about your patches.

The patch is quite big and I am currently trying to understand it.

As far as I see you made an own method createVolumeObject(), which
might be a good idea (lets see).

The thing I haven't understood yet: What getRecordStatus() is good for?
