MAudio Delta 66 has how many inputs?

Aaron Cummings's picture

This article says at the top of page 65 that the Delta 66 has 6 stereo inputs for a "possible total of 12 input channels".

Doesn't this card have four mono analog inputs, and one S/PIDF input for two digital in channels?

Delta 66/44

I wonder myself. Based on the authors description of the breakout box having 4 STEREO ports and 2 SPDIF ports, I rushoued out and purchased a delta 44. As far as I can tell, it has 4 mono ins and outs. Alsa playback channel 1 plays on port 1 and plaback 2 plays on port 2 (also in the left ear if headphones are hooked up.)

Here's to hoping they will release it as an installable distro at some point...

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
