Dear Ardour users,
I hope you don't mind me posting this here, I'll also subscribe to
alsa and linux-audio lists to give it a go. I'm looking for a new or
second hand sound card that can do multi-channel analog recording for
my band, using linux and ardour. Preferably 6 channels or more
simultaneously (analog), 4 will do if we really have to.
I'm trying very hard to find suitable cards, but not finding much
apart from hammerfall and maudio 44/66/1010(lt). Is that really all
of the suitable candidates? I understood (but would like to stand
corrected) that USB is perhaps not the best choice for 6 channel
simultaneous input. The alsa sound card matrix has too little
information to be of much help.
Of course our budget is small, so the maudio 1010lt looks tempting, or
a second-hand 1010 for roughly the same price. All the firewire cards
I've looked at so far (especially maudio) don't seem to have good
linux support. If a good and affordable external firewire solution
were available, I'd be very much in favour of it.
Suggestions for sound cards (or similar solutions) that will allow 6
channel analong recording and will definitely work with Ardour are
very very welcome!
