i personally think this is a bad idea. here's why:

  a) hdspmixer was designed by RME. they have full docs on it at their
website. leave them to figure out the best way to explain it ;) The
linux version uses the same design and the same graphics. Thomas did a
great job of replicating all of its gnarly RME glory ...

  b) unless you are doing something complex, the *only* thing you need
hdspmixer for is to just configure the matrix mixer into its default
state. to do this, just start it up, press Ctrl-q. done. nothing more
*should* be required.
