Hello !
First i want to thank all the developpers for the great work... i'm 
following this on linuxsince the 0.99 version.. end the 2.0.1 works great !

I'm now owning a macbook core2 duo, running 10.4.9, and ardour is 
running fine.. except with my BCF2000, either in BC mode or in 
LogicControl mode. the mackie emulation mode is not usable, is it ?

All the following is done trying to use the LC emulation mode.

Has anyone an idea ? I post my ardour.rc there :
