After all but giving up on the ALSA driver for my EMU0404, I decided on a whim to try my old Sound Blaster Extigy USB... and it magically worked. I am syncing with a Roland VS1680. I took a fresh 2.1 install and configured and connected everything within jack (it won't work unless you have 3 periods for some reason I'm unaware of). Then I opened Ardour, checked "Use MTC", set the Roland to External Sync at 30 and it just worked. Also, don't bother using alsaconf as there's no driver for it which shows up... just leave it alone and change the soundcard within the volume manager. -Troy

My Audigy should also work, but I have a faulty midi input... Not so nice. Good to hear yours is up and running. Cheers, Quentin
