Hm? I tries to switch from LAD to LAU, regarding to current user
queries, but it failed. Hi Admin [1] ;).

Hi Gustin :), hi Ubuntu Studio users list :), pardon LAD ;)

IIUC a HDSPe AIO or DSP 9632 is all I need, if I just need a stereo IO?
I only need to buy a BF-BOXLRMKH or BF-BOCMKH breakout cable?

If I need additional IOs and wish to avoid Multiface firmware issues, I
can add AI4S-192 AIO and AO4S-192 AIO.

If I need much more IOs and don't have enough money for RME IOs, I can
e.g. use a BEHRINGER ADA8000 ULTRAGAIN PRO8 DIGITAL by ADAT connection.
The sound quality might be less good and I guess this will add extra
latency and Ardour won't auto-compensate this extra latency

As long as I'm using a mobo with PCI slots I can use AI4S-192 AIO and
AO4S-192 AIO with a DSP 9632 and when I switch to a mobo with PCIe only
I can switch from DSP 9632 to HDSPe AIO and keep AI4S-192 AIO and

Using a DSP 9632 with a PCIe to PCI bridge doesn't work or at least
could cause issues?

I want to switch from LAD to LAU, regarding to some user queries about
sound cards. When I first tried to subscribe, I made a typo for my email
address, then I tried again without typo, but it failed several times,
without any error messages.
