M-Audio Delta 66 “REV E” in the house

We bought a M-Audio Delta 66 last year to complete our multi-track captation system. We’re working for a long time with M-Audio sound cards and especially with Delta 44 ones. So we were a bit surprised when we discovered that the M-Audio Delta 66 revision E wasn’t supported by the alsa project.

Live en direct à Esperanzah!, on remet ça

Le concert d’Amparanoia sera en direct dimanche soir à 22h sur les ondes de Radio Esperanzah!.
