Do we have a list of what is supported on which cards? I don't use sound at
all at the moment because I have "braindead hardward". I'd like to get
something that I can do full duplex, provides some high quality audio, MIDI,
and is well supported (so I can get rid of my old analog 4-track recorder.)
Is there such a beastie? I'll take an RTFM if you point me to the M that I
have overlooked, TYVM. I'll also take responses in private e-mail so we can
preserve bandwidth for GGI rants. :-) (1 vote for trying it out in 2.3/5
(when EvStack is ready) as a config option if possible. Darwin was right.)
