  Hi Tom
 I am a user of a Zoom H4 and it does what I want. This unit downloads on a 
USB hub. Frequently I use Audacity which is user friendly. There are number of 
filter packages which extend the capabilities a lot. 




Audio / Video file codecs: 
Check out Flac & Ogg in addition to regulars.
As for Ubuntu Studio 9.04 and the RT kernel the future may be problematic in 
that it appears the maintainers have abandoned the project. If anyone will 
pick it up is yet to be seen. For myself, I have been running 8.04 but have 
had little need for the dynamic RT, and am in the process of moving over to 
Fedora 10 and CCRMA.
