Sorry for the troubles...

I have a fully up-to-date PlanetCCRMA FC3 machine - 700Mhz P3 with about
640MB of RAM.
I bought a cheap second-hand RME Hammerfall 9636 recently, in the
knowledge that it was untested.
I've plugged the card in, and run alsaconf. I can start jack with
qjackctl, and connect my audio applications to all of the cards inputs
and outputs, and so on.
Sounds good so far.
I have a Behringer ADA8000 connected to the first lightpipe output.
The ADA8000 has two ADAT cables, correct? Have you connected both of
them? Does the ADA8000 have clock rate indicators? Does the clock rate
follow the rate you set in QJackCTL?
However, I'm having difficulties getting a clean output - whichever
software I use...
For example, when I play audio, and route it to output 1, all I can hear
is some approximation of white noise, until the volume gets to somewhere
near maximum - when I can hear a very distorted version of the original
Does this help at all?
A bit. I thought we were supposed to be able to look at this cards
settings using amixer but so far it shows me nothing for the 9636
while it shows me lots for the AP2496. I'll look at that a bit more
but maybe you know how to use amixer or have some better info on this?
Basically I'm thinking we need to see the card's settings...
I'm *hoping* that I've just done something wrong, and that the card
isn't fried. ALSA detected the card fine though, for what it's worth.
I have a 9636 (same card) with all 4 ADAT cables going to two I/Os on
my HDSP 9652.
I always watch the 9636 indirectly by using hdspconf on the HDSP 9652
end. It just works and I don't have issues.
Wish I could be of more help.
