Topic: Help sought - AES32 card on Ubuntu 14.10
Can any of the experienced forum users please help? I have an AES-32 card which is recognised but not properly configured by the HDSPM driver on Ubuntu 14.10. Would different firmware or possibly adapting the code of the driver be sufficient to get the card working? The AES-32 works flawlessly under Windows 7, driven by JRiver 20's JRSS parametric equaliser, but all my other PC uses have been based around Linux for the past 7 years or more. The AES-32 is detected by alsa -

HDSPConf however cannot find the card:

HDSPMixer runs, and the sliders operate, but nothing else. JRiver mediacenter20 lists the card but will not play to it, and I cannot start jack either. I'm an experienced, retired engineer (digital sonar systems), and I fully understand RME's commercial position, BTW, and would be prepared to have a look at changing the code if that's what it needs. Many thanks.
