I have an Edirol UA-1000: it was one of the first USB2 audio devices
made, and has its own kernel driver (common with the Edirol UA-101,
which superceded it). AFAIK it's not class compliant with either USB1 or
USB2. It has 12 inputs and 10 outputs.
jackd runs very nicely with:
/usr/bin/jackd -P89 -t2000 -dalsa -r44100 -p256 -n2 -D -Chw:UA1000
-Phw:UA1000 -zs -I110 -O110
Hardware is a Dell Vostro 1520 laptop, Core2 Duo 2.4 GHz P8600.
Other software is Ubuntu 10.04, vanilla kernel from kernel.org
(currently 3.0.4), and jack1 from svn.
I get the occasional xrun if I forget to disable CPU frequency scaling
and the DSP load gets high, but otherwise it goes all day xrun free with
