Hi Bernardo,

Are you recommending `Intel HD graphics`, or suggesting to avoid them?
Sorry if it was not clear but I would definitely recommend Intel HD graphics.

Are all RME sound-cards class compliant, including the multi-channel ones?
Sadly not all RME have a class compliant mode – it’s a recent feature and I still have to struggle with ffado with my old fireface 800. I’ve only tested the Babyface Pro, but since you asked, I’ve just looked at the RME website and it seems that all new devices have a class compliant mode : Fireface UFX+, UFX II, UFX, UCX, 802, Babyface, Babyface Pro and MADIface Pro. So that should be the case, which is brilliant! However, you should be warned that you can’t use TotalMix Fx in CC mode (even if it’s apparently exclusively working with the Ipad app, so maybe that might be tweakable…).

Babyface Pro. It’s crystal clear, with very low latency, and you get a
full class compliant mode to run flawlessly under Linux without any
driver! With its convenient control panel, you thus get a nice plug and
play device. I’ve seen some problems with latency on Scarletts, but
we’re definitely not comparing same beasts and prices.
