I know that this question may initially seem quite simple, but from what I've been reading with the advent of Scope 6 (Open Scope), there has been a lot of talk of cross-platform compatibility.
I've also had a look at the Ardour site (www.ardour.org
), which is developed by Paul Davis. He also developed Linux/ALSA drivers for the RME cards, and I read in the Ardour forum that he'd originally contacted Creamware about writing drivers, but didn't get any further as they showed a lack of interest.
I think that was back in 2006. Now that times have changed, do you think it would be possible to work with the ALSA team on creating drivers for these cards?
I know the driver side of these cards appears to be quite simple in comparison to all of the hard work that goes into developing the Scope system, so it's probably not a question that can be easily answered, or a challenge that can be easily looked at, but I did want to voice an interest!
I'm not really a programmer, but now I have a 3DSP card I'd be quite happy to provide anyone with as much information as they'd need. I'm a big fan of Linux, its system timing, and its constant growth. There has been a lot of development in the audio field for it in recent years, and while there are hundreds of LADSPA/LV2/DSSI plugins, they aren't a Scope system
Thanks for taking the time to read this post!
