Sorry for the inconvenience. I am new to Linux actually Ubuntu Studio as a
musician starting with electronics in 70ties. I have spent pretty amount of
money for audio equipment like EMU ext.audio card for which you need
actually Win XP drivers and there s the end cos the company do not exist
anymore and no more upgrade support. Despite the external audio I/O device
is running OK, there s the end of a story. No one from UbuntuStudio users
or programmers or experts will go to write drivers for an expired device.
It takes time. Devoting yourself to playing the classic guitar pretty well
you may spend a lifetime long. The less tweaking searching studying the
computer science - the better.
  I do not use ubuntu.com e-mail like I know. I just wished to help with my
experience from my point of view. Trying to compose symphonic stuff
handwriting also, according to the age of all possible claiming era of
computers and audio equipment. But there are still the yewels and diamonds
to last for ever.
 Best regards !!
