I've use one for quite a while now. I have no complaints, but it is an old
design. The upside is that it works. The support for the newer hardware is
sketchy. Just because a driver may "support" it doesn't mean there are any
userspace tools for it. I built a box for a friend using the HDSP AES32 which
is supported by the MADI driver. I was able to get it to work, but barely. The
only software I could find for working with the matrix was a small CLI program
intended to be a demo, (By a guy who hasn't touched the MADI driver in years)
which for some reason got preserved in the SVN for pd of all places and just
happened to work on the AES the same as the MADI. Not exactly the most
intuitive interface for my friend who is totally clueless using a CLI shell.
So just because the design may be kinda poor doesn't mean it's not useful.
