my two old Delta 1010 cards are definitely dying now. So I need replacement
for all those analog I/Os. I have found three candidates: Behringer X Air
XR18, Presonus ARC16C and Tascam u16x08(?) and would be glad if anyone could
share experiences with them under Linux. I'm also looking for further
alternatives (see my minimum requirements below). I definitely need
multichannel audio coming from the device.
The Tascan appears to have many microphone inputs, which cannot serve for line
level input, if that really is so, it's out.
The Behringer requires the app, which I have not been able to test, but its
accessibility is not that important, if the XR18 will remember settings across
The ARC16C's description reads very well, but there are many dubious reviews,
perhaps it was an early "Monday" manufacturing problem though.
My requirements: one mic in (no need for +48V phantom power), one instrument
in (Clavinet, I think it needs extra amping), at least 12 line level ins, 14
preferred. Four outputs (main out and to "sends" to outboard). No DSP,
routing/bussing,... My workflow is purely centred in the box, using JACK for
Based on the three candidates, I'd say my price range has to go up to 700 EUR.
Any experiences and further suggestions are very much appreciated!
