      Hi Sid,
      Roland Quad Capture USB (or Edirol UA-55) I think half the problem is that it has physical pots on the hardware.
      I can't say I've tried that hard to get it going under Linux, I'm not keen on kernel patches due to having to remember what has been done then redoing it later. Routes seem to be around hoping a driver version specified for older/other Edirol version works with this
      I bought it on a whim but now like the pots because it sort of bridges the PC world with real world, I run some pc speakers from the phones socket and If I want to go from monitoring output to input just twist that pot. same with input levels or output level.

      Love the footer by the way MS free zone, I try.
      Spent a day doing a clean install of Win7 (+Office 2007) on a laptop even with SP1 on DVD must have been few hundred patches and what seemed like twenty reboots, couldn't even "set it going and come back later".
      Same day spent few minutes putting Lubuntu on someone's old personal laptop and they were fully updated checking mail before the MS box had done a fraction of it's install/update.

      I hadn't dug that deeply in SDR-Radio, will give it a go from work as test.
      Leaving a MS box running and in anyway accessible to the internet conflicts heavily with my day job so if I did try it would be a single use stand alone PC firewalled from anything I value.
      The Linux server mentioned before may be something I'll look into longer term but my only decent sound card is not well supported (kernel patches aside).
      SDR-Radio is limited I believe to 96khz so again not quite what I was hoping to achieve.
      I'm going to have to get the IF kit for my old FT-102 that would be two era's meeting, just need to address some relays first..


      Out of curiosity, what sound card is it?
      I had been using a E-MU0404 USB card for years for guitar work and when I got my first Softrock I used it for I-Q, all the time alsa-project said it was unsupported.
      73 ... Sid.

        OK, alsa-project.org doesn't list it and http://apps.linuxaudio.org/wiki/current_audio_gear says unknown, so you may be the first to report on it to alsa-project.org with details of what dmesg says about it, if it's enumerated in "lsusb", listed with "cat /proc/asound/cards" and what mixer controls are seen.

        I've been using Linux as my only OS for home and work use since around Windows 95/98. Found it made me more productive than using Windows or Solaris as I could deal with multiple partitions on SPARC Enterprise servers like the Sun E10K and the Fujitsu Primepower series without having to log off one partition and on to another. All my mainframe work, plus Citrix Linux client, Cisco VPN Linux client, even Lotus Notes mail under wine and StarOffice for expense spreadsheets allowed me to stay Linux only with almost all our corporate systems frontends Windows based.  
        Regards
        Sid.
