 I spent some time earlier this evening looking at some of their cards.
 Figure at some time in your process you're going to have to deal with
 it anyway. {Their cables cost as much as my sound card.}

 I'm harboring this secret hope that Avid's going to port the SGI version
 of DV Xpress to linux {and that as a result linux's rep as a multimedia
 platform will improve by leaps and bounds.} someday soon.

 Maybe a dedicated video/audio editing workstation with a Blender/Combustion
 style interface done in SDL? It would be a great way to harness all of those
 command line audio programs.
