I'm a computer audio noob, I should confess for the record. After searching for countless hours I have not been able to find anyone using the E-MU 1212M PCIe in Linux. The Alsa site appears to indicate that it's untested but casual references in some forums suggest that it may be supported. Will it work or do I need to pay a premium for a used 1212M PCI that I understand does work? It has a better than average DAC so it strikes me as pretty good value. I'm excited about AVLinux and would be very grateful to have a definitive answer to this vexing hardware puzzle.
