[linux-audio-user] Multiple (three) RME Hammerfalls... any experience

After rereading my message, I saw too many unclarities and typos, so
I'll try again.

The problem is that we have to transfer a few hours of 72-channel music
from three synced Mackie SDR24/96's to a harddisk. I don't really know 
what format the music is recorded in.

As my colleague is unable to use three RME Hammerfall DSP card's in his
dual G4 powermac with OSX (don't know exact version), I wondered if I
could use Linux to capture the music to harddisk.

If anybody has any experience, please let me know. Otherwise we will
proceed with one card and thus 24 channels at a time, which does work.
