RME Babyface-totalmix with ardour on a macbook pro

Hello everyone,
I recently got an RME babyface which I want to use with a relatively new macbook pro to record with ardour.
I am having hellish time getting any signal out of the Totalmix into ardour for recording.
If anyone has had good experience with totalmix and ardour on a macbook pro, please help.
I will be grateful for any suggestions.

@zoran: i know you’re looking for a solution, but hitting both the ardour-users mailing list and this forum at the same time tends to end up being a bit of a timewaster for people who might be able to help you.
