Before doing anything, and especially opening the box, I will try to
be certain as much as possible of the nature of the problem, in this
case by excluding software totally, which is still not yet done.  I
still have an eye on Bitwig, by coincidence, and that pulseaudio zombie
does not look good.  At least for MIDI devices Bitwig is doing things
different than Ardour which is, after all by Paul Davis who also made
jackd.  I would presume that the reference in using jackd comes from
Ardour.  Also, Bitwig 1.11 had major crash problems in playing audio
files from the sampler library and was replaced by 1.12 in a very short

One more thing, I have demonstrated elsewhere on KVR that moving a
plug-in GUI from the same desktop where Bitwig runs to another desktop
will cause Bitwig to not play fully an audio clip in the Clip
Launcher.  Why would there be an interaction between the GUI/Desktop
and the capacity to fully play an audio clip ?  It might be that Some
Things are not that clear in Bitwig, and that could be understandable
if they wanted initially to quickly get to the market.

So, software is not yet entirely out of the picture.

One thing for sure though, it might be a Good Thing to have another
1010LT card.
