Please be aware that this is not necessarily a fixed value in BeOS. The actual buffer size depends on the Media prefs setting (i.e. if real-time audio is enabled or not) and on what the audio driver for your soundcard uses. However, since BeOS R4.5 there is the possibility to query the audio driver for the actual buffer size it uses through ioctl().
