Hi Karl :)

today I got a RME card, very, very expensive. I'm curious about it. I
wonder if it will sound better than all the other cards I know, or if I
just spend money for nothing. I bought a B-stock (customer return), so
somebody perhaps wasn't satisfied by this card ;).

ACK, but no full ACK regarding to "Linux audio isn't that good, as
proprietary audio is". MIDI jitter for hw MIDI is an issue on all OS,
AFAIK only Nuendo should be good and still with limitations. There

Regarding to audio it depends to the needs. If I should get rid of audio
loss, I'm satisfied for home recording. Just for professional work
Ardour2 IMO isn't stable enough. Sometimes it crash and sometimes still
is to often, regarding to contract penalty.
