Hi Paul,
The cards are Roland RPC-1's manufactured by M-Audio. I believe they are
a modified Delta 1010. This was Rolands only way of directly connecting
the VS series recorders R-buses to a computer. I say was because Roland
stopped selling them -I think they got in a spat with M-audio over the
Delta R-bus card, which was similar, but sold only by M-audio. My
VS-2480 supports 2 cards for a total of 16 tracks of digital I/O. the
VS-2480 can act as master or slave, as can the card and they share midi
timecode via the R-bus connection (I suspect that may be done using the
coax channels on the card?). This too has been a source of variables
that contributes to my quagmire. When it comes to setting slaves and
masters, I haven't been able to figure out who is driving the bus, so to
speak, and pun half intended.

If you check my reponse to Mark, above, you'll see this line has changed
with the removal of /usr/local/bin/jackd
Does it look OK to you now?

Thanks to you too, and Jack, and Jan et al
