Number of input/output captures of a Delta 2496
maybe someone has experience or/and the knowledge to answer my question (unfortunately I'm lacking both of it, that's the reason for this post).
I rebuilt my studio to have a better and cleaner situation in that room, and with that I replaced my Lexicon Omega Studio (USB) with a PCI card, M-Audio Delta 2496 Audiophile. A really fine thing, seems rather professional to me, for my needs it fits perfectly.
Now I have that situation:
All samplers and Mics run into a 22 mixer.
Mixer is connected to the 2 channels of the 2496's IN.
2496's OUT goes back to the mixer, from here to control room/headphones.
Works like a charm, really fine. All recording, playing back works and sounds great for my ears.
BUT.... now my question. In Ardour/Mixbus or -more precisely- in JACK the 2496 shows 10 input captures and (I think) 4 output captures. But the 2496 has only 2 inputs and two outputs !
ALSA uses the ICE1712 driver.
Is it conditioned by the use of too much brandy that I see things (more than) twice ? Is it my age that masquerades certain stuff larger than it is in reality ?
Or... maybe there is a technical background. Maybe someone else has a 2496 and could tell his experience in that case.
I was wondering... maybe due to the fact that BEFORE I switched to the PCI interface, I was running a USB device. Could that be an explanation for my observance ?
I'd be glad for input.
Thanks a lot,
