Terein likes the caveot.

I think the trick is to use the hamerfall and then drop any other commercial
front end onto your system and interface via the unit's adat, though it would
be nice to have a 96IO for Ardour.  Of cours, I'm not inlove with an digidesing
preamp anyway, so it seems like less of a sacrifice for me.
