Thanks Joe and Greg for the info.
I tried 1.0.1 from testing and it does playback okay. The features are
on the sparse side though. This is probably going over old ground but I
did trace it to an endian problem.
I decided to compile different versions to see where it fails. Right
off the bat the source for 1.0.0 from the audacity site played back with
the same "noise". The only difference was a test to set big or little
endian. adding that solve the problem.
Unfortunately, the next higher version seemed to be completely rewritten
and the same simple fix doesn't work.
At this point I'm hoping that if I can compile audacity with alsa and
jack support it may work.
