Sorry about that. The tab key move the curser to the send button.

Anyway, the FTPro shows up smoething as:

hw:0      outputs 1 and 2
hw:0,1    utputs 3 and 4, which include the inputs for Inst/line and SPDIF
the docs for the FTPro also mention this hen run under Windows

That is as far as I have gotten in any regard to functionality. Before I
have read in the Ardour forum:

"16-bit/48kHz 2 x 4 operation is class-compliant. Driver installation
required to access more I/O."
"There was a patch to get 24bit working which is now included in the ALSA
sources, so there are no problems with 24bit mode."

As of yet, I can not verify either. I hope to report after I get Fedora 10
and Planet CCRMA running.
