A&H are considered, by many in the pro sound world, as high end gear;
probably on the same shelf or next one up compared to Mackie or Yamaha.

As for how it or any other hardware may work with UbuStu, can't say. So far
my time spent in UbuStu has had nothing to do with sound and all to do with
figuring out what broke after every update... :-(

Just a thought, but if you can, you might give some thought for separating the
music production workstation from everyday desktop use. Install, and pull the
network plug. Keeping it out from network pretty much keeps it from being
vulnerable to the cruel surrounding world. No need for updates --> no breakage.

If you have a spare machine for desktop use, that is.

Yes, this is a great idea and my plan is to do just that. But, the network
(wireless is my current sticking point, though previously it was the nvidia
stuff) is handy when
adding packages initially and when adding things in the future...sneakernet
is so old
school. ;-)

Eh, I guess if you have hardware that has lots of tough to install
drivers. My Dell D510 has been cool after all updates so far.

The PC I'm talking about is a Dell XPS with nvidia and intel 3954 wireless.

It came from Dell with Ubuntu 8.0.4. All was fine until I started to add
the UbuntuStudio packages, primarily -rt kernel.

While there is lots of info on the web it is not necessarily current or
comprehensive. Thus one source says you need to install the backpatch to
the rt to get the wireless to work and another says 8.0.4 handles it.

At this point I have kernels in /boot that I certainly don't want, probably
don't need, and have little clue as to what they have munged into them.

At this point I'm thinking of wiping the disk and starting from scratch
with the dvd of UbuntuStudio.

That's cool about A&H. :)

Yikes. Hopefully the "up-breaks" stop or turn into actual effective
updates.

Just got back from a gig. We use an Allen and Heath Mix Wizard 16:2
with that band. It's a very large step up from the Mackie 1604 we were
using as far as audio quality goes. Yummy. Also, they stand behind
their stuff. Very, very good warranty service.
