Thanks for the vote of confidence!

Not so fast...  we at audioscience would love to have some help with our ALSA 
driver and our underlying HPI driver.
We are a small company that supports various Micros~1 flavours as well as 
Linux 2.4 and 2.6 kernel variations.  I am the single person who does all the 
linux stuff, and would still say I don't know enough to do it easily or 

(Of course I have had help from our customers and other alsa developers, and 
kudos to Takashi Iwai for doing the work to incorporate our ALSA driver into 
the alsa tree)

So step right up...

to see in a "pro audio card"?
