Hi List

I was discussing today if i could install an Ardour System with 32  
MADI in as a pure Recording Device in a Professional

A/V Postproduction Studio. For those who know it, it should replace in  
a cost-effective way a Tascam MX2424 Device

Three Crucial Points came to the Surface and i wanted to ask the  
List / Developers what they think about.

1) Destructive Record is necessary and it has to be absolutely time- 
sync to incoming MTC.
     Ardour supports Broadast Wave, but will the "original" Recording  
Time code be writte to the header ? So that it can later be spotted  
(for example in Protools)

2) Is there any experience with available MADI Interfaces ?

3) Does Ardour understand the Sony 9-pin Protocoll for transport,  
record and track-enabling ?

4) What would be the most accurate way to sync it to incoming SMPTE ???

Thats for now..

I would apprecciate any comment

Thanks Luigi
