Ok... I bought this (the express edition).

Hope it will work, otherwise I'll have to sell it :(

I'm a bit worried because I've seen some forums where they say (said...)
that they are (were...) having problems (using the past because the posts
are dated around 2010).

example:

 http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1265322

and another one in italian, although here
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1557215 they say it works.

In the post in italian I read also someone who said that the card could not
work because it is not listed here
http://www.alsa-project.org/main/index.php/Matrix:Vendor-Alesis. Actually,
it is listed as "unknown".

If someone wants to confort me, thank you :p
