[PlanetCCRMA] I'm really getting into this -- need input onentry-level pro-quality hardware

I'm assuming you meant the M-Audio OmniStudio...

I had seen some for sale on ebay, but thought the USB connection might be problematic...

Now I see that there is also an OmniStudio product with PCI card.  Is that the model you are using?

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.
