So that sounds like a Jack/Ardour issue. If Cubase SX works then the
hardware is fine under OS X.
I'm looking to buy a unit that would fill potentially 3 slots:
1) OS X recording using a Mac app
2) OS X recording using an X app like Ardour
3) Eventually Linux based FreeBob recording should I need it.
I don't suppose anyone has tried Stephane's new Jack server with this
yet, have they?
