I use my Hammerfall Light with an Alesis AI-3. It works very well, 
although I think there are less expensive 8/8 converters out there now.

You have the same card Steve? What converters are you using?

I agree, but my new Pro Tools stuff jsut sounds a bit smoother, warmer, 
more full when operating in 96K mode. Better clocking, for sure, but I 
assume the extra samples can't hurt...
