   It ain't pretty but I've done it using hdspmixer and different
preset files. My main outs on the HDSP 9652 are A3-1 & A3-2. If I'm
recording something from a hardware input, like In 9/10 (A2-1 & A2-2)
the I have a preset file that routes that directly to A3-1/A3-2 for
zero delay.

   I've also messed a bit with routing to an inexpensive extenal
reverb unit for recording vocals. It helps.

   Anyway, as I said, it ain't pretty, but it does work.
