The ALSA Tools package is only needed by those with advanced requirements for their sound card. The tools are not all built together, instead you need to cd into the directory of each tool you wish to compile and run the following commands:
./configure --prefix=/usr && make && make install
The tools available in this package are ac3dec, as10k1, envy24control, sb16_csp and sbiload.
as10k1 is an assembler for the emu10k1 DSP chip present in the Creative SB Live, PCI 512, and emu APS sound cards. It is used to make audio effects such as a flanger, chorus or reverb.
