Don't know what I meant, unless I was being careful about the RME
naming. Sometimes people say HDSP, HDSP9652, MultiFace & DigiFace. I'm
not commenting on the DigiFace or MultiFace of the HDSP PCI or Cardbus
cards. I'm only commenting on the HDSP9652.
I also own a Hammerfall Light. It worked under Linux, but I didn;t use
it much. Some time ago I removed it and it's sitting on my desk begging
for a machine to go into.
