Hi angelsguitar I mean minum sound quality with no expensive price. I have seen the card you tell and it's price in Italy or on web is about 40€ a little high tha 35 $ , but I think is better to take time because I want but the midi/usb masterkeyboards Behringer UMX-49 that in bundle have this audio card . Unique problem of this card: ther's no mid in/out and expecially no mic input , only line in/out. But in effect for this price .................... I tell you about my future shopping bye

Hi madforthenet! I noticed your first post said "minimum sound quality". I don't know how "minimum" you need it to be, but right now I'm using a Behringer UCA 202 USB audio interface in Linux without problems. It can record at 16 bit 48 Khz at most (if you need 24 bit, then this wouldn't do it), has digital output, and sells for aprox. $30-$35 us dollars. Just so you know, in case it fits your needs.

Linux support

For some indescribable reason some manufacturers are shy to admit Linux support, or make it hard for us to support their hardware. They may believe that supporting another platform would cost too much, or that there will be bad publicity when a 3rd party driver causes problems. We need to let these companies know that it might be worst publicity if they do not at least make it possible for their devices to be supported. The best way I have found to look for USB compatibility is to do a google search: "--your card here-- linux compatible"

USB compatibility depends on the manufacturer. If a device is developed and built to be class compliant, it normally works out-of-box. If there is special drivers, you might (almost certainly) run into trouble. Check the manufacturer's website for info. If it states something like (plug and play, no drivers required) - you are in luck.

Ok this is for firewire

While FFADO is not supported out of box by the 3.0 beta's yet, it is a release blocker that the 3.0 release would. Cheers, Quentin
