All the 20-bit echogals (the original Layla, Gina, and Darla) are supported by current ALSA; some of the 24-bit echogals are as well (I forget right now if the 3G versions are or not).

And a full matrix monitoring mixer (the full matrix mode in echomixer has to be seen to be believed; perhaps I can grab a screenshot one day when I'm using the beast).  Ok, that's three.  But anyway...

In a similar vein, has anyone had any experience with the Echo Audio 
FireWire products?  I was looking at a Layla 3G, but it occurred to me 
that the FW device would also be useable with a loptom, thus allowing 
for recording on the go.

Thoughts, anyone?
