Correct me if I'm wrong=2C but RME Firewire products have no plans to ever =
be supported under Linux.=20

Maybe but we're talking USB connections and they're Class Compliant.

"Class Compliant Mode

=09
=09
The Fireface UCX is the first fully professional audio interface wit=
h the option to be used as Class Compliant interface.=20

=09
The Class Compliant mode is a standard that is natively=20
supported by operating systems like Windows=2C Mac OSX and Linux=20
distributions.=20
No proprietary drivers are required=2C the device will be directly=20
recognized when the CC mode is activated by the button on the front=20
panel."

After that it starts going on about connection to an iPad and what channels=
are available. It doesn't seem clear if this is the case for any connectio=
n that relies on Class Compliant mode. Although there is this not on the pa=
ge relating to the mode exclusively:"Mac OS X supports USB Audio 2.0=2C eve=
n with more than 2 channels. Currently=2C the UCX offers 2-channel and 8-ch=
annel modes.=20

Skim reading it seems it may only work in "8 channel mode" with the analogu=
e inputs=2C not 16 channels with the analogue plus ADAT though...

Also note this comment about Firewire on the USX. Seems things have changed=
a little...
"FireWire . The completely redesigned FireWire=20
technology of the HFX-Core provides the UCX with the same exceptional=20
compatibility and performance as RME's USB solution. The UCX does
not have any FireWire chip inside - the complete bus technology is=20
programmed into the FPGA and remains under direct control.=20
If ever necessary=2C it can be updated anytime by a simple firmware
update." =
