This is the first question you need to resolve.The VSL1818 works OOTB with ALSA>= 1.0.24.Does that include configuration settings (sample rate, clock source, etc.) which are apparently only SW controlled ?clock-sources: yes. they're exposed by alsa-mixer. In fact it's a bit of a hassle because they all default to 'external'; but nothing a amixer script can't fix (maybe with OSX or Win one can write new power-on defaults to the box and even reverse engineer to the protocol). sample-rate: don't know. -- good call. I'll check that. I'm about to get a ssh-login to a debian box with a 1818VSL connected. So I can poke around before ordering. I've asked to patch an output to an input so that I can run jack_delay.. -- will report back later. Alas the box will be ~5500 miles away so I can't play with the hardware itself.
Please keep us updated!
I'm still curious what others think about the device in general or if anyone has hands-on experience with it.
The best I've had an experience with has been the Edirol UA-101, regretfully no longer made. You have to manually change the sampling rate with a switch and power cycle it but it does work very well under linux.
I'm also looking for an 8 channel USB2 soundcard. I have been trying out an Maudio Fast Track Ultra 8R but I can get it to work reliably below 256x2 and even then I see xruns from time to time (this under kernel 3.2.x-rt). So I can't recommend it.
