How would I know? From Per's message I'm guessing ALSA is the default and I 
haven't tried starting it yet with other arguments.

I didn't, as I haven't researched the Linux audio architecture.

Good to know. Now I just need to know where the ALSA "knobs" are to tweak.

Looking at the Doom3 FAQ, it looks like the knobs are in the app (ie. the 
Q4 command line), not system-wide. I'll report back after fiddling with the 
command line.
