     Unfortunately, things can get ugly very quickly :(  Even a tiny bit of 
delay from a dedicated commercial A/D->DSP->D/A unit can induce subtle but 
unpleasant comb filtering, making everything sound "not quite right".  This 
is much more of an issue with the monitors than it is with the mains.  If you 
can, I'd advise mixing the mains with Ardour, and the monitors with an analog 
mixer.  This is what I hope to do, if I ever get a more portable computer ;)
