I have a lot of Midiman OmniStudio boxes here at CCRMA (a Midiman Delta
66 + external OmniIO box). It is well supported by ALSA (as well as the
1010lt mentioned in the same thread) and has 4 line level inputs and
outputs (balanced), 2 mic amps, can do 24/96Khz i/o, and has 1 spdif
port. Very good audio quality. The only thing missing is a MIDI port.
