Hi Fernando,

I just talked to Thomas Neuhaus. He told me he got the snd program to
work with the old Hammerfall 9652 which also is interleaved. There is
a hack in alsa which makes alsa do the necessary conversion from
interleaved to non interleaved. 

You have to set an environment variable. Following is an example for

    setenv SNDLIB_ALSA_PLAYBACK_DEVICE default:0,0

He said, instead of default it can also be called hwplug:0,0 After
that, snd plays any number of channels.

I will check that tomorrow whith the new HDSP when I get my Multiface
