M-Audio Audiophile USB

Hi everybody!

I am a proud owner of an M-Audio Audiophile USB. I no that nobody recommends USB audio interfaces, but I bought this one before I got firewire on my PC. Anyway, I really like the sound quality of the card, but I absolutely do not get the analog inputs to work. They show nothing but silence in Ardour, even with the preamp cranked up high. I have read some hints on using the device_setup parameter when modprobing snd-usb-audio, but I still don’t get it to work. So I was wondering if anyone here owns or knows about this device and can tell me the “magical” combination of device_setup, alsa and jack parameters.
Any help is appreciated!


Well, playing around with the device_setup parameter and starting jack first and THEN starting Ardour fixed it.
