Hi Mark,

I am back again on this topic because it seems quite difficult to find a
used HDSP9652 for a reasonable price, while used DiGi9652 are considerably
So what do you mean by "alsa commands"? Do you mean using alsamixer to set
channel level, muting, etc?

I won't use any mixing function, all I need is to set levels at max level,
taking 6 channels from ADAT input at 24bit/48Khz and outputting 6 (or more)
channels at 24bit/48Khz from ADAT output after BruteFir convolution.
I will probably use in near future wordclock out too to sync with a ADI-8
Pro, but I think both HDSP and DiGi allow this feature.

What about syncing more than one DiGi9652 card? Do you know if is it

Thank you very much!
Best regards,
