The Delta44 is great. Easy to work with, controllable with env24control.
Bit of a learning curve for the envy tool, but once you get the hang of it
Installation: I've had ALSA rc7 installed for quite q while, I was using
my sblive with it. I didn't even need to rebuild anything, just plug the
card in and 'modprobe snd-ice1712' - HAHA! Simple. I ran it for a while
with both sound cards, but once I figured out the Delta, I removed the
sblive - it was unnecessary.
Note: You will need some sort of monitoring system for the audio output.
There's no 'out' for PC speakers. A little creative routing sends game
and interface sounds to the 44's outs. I do not know how or if I'll be
able to play audio CDs. I didn't see the usual 'cd in' header on the 44,
although I may have missed it. This is really low priority for me, Ill
get to it.
Audacity 1.0 plays and records fine with it. I haven't had a chance to
beat on it, and the multi-input capabilities of that app are in
development right now. Seems fine so far.
The Delta works fine with Ardour. I'm not skilled enough yet in ardour to
really comment on it, beyond saying it's a breeze to use all the I/O ports
on the 44.
Haven't tried much else on it yet, I'm waiting for my mixer to arrive (the
first one showed up DOA...).
Comments welcome, esp. on the CD question.
I love the card, the sound is great. It is a much-needed boost for my home
