Allen and Heath Zed R16 working with Ardour on Linux
I picked up a Zed R16 firewire mixer last week, and am very happy to say that it works with Ardour 3..
All that is required is to have the latest ffado library 2.2.1 (no need for GIT releases)
I've only done basic testing, but in 44.1k the 16 mono inputs are all exposed, plus a digital master , plus one of the ADAT ports.
MIDI output from the desk is also exposed..
Latency appears to be excellent with recording of 16 tracks tested (no plugins running at this stage) at 64 periods with no xruns (of course this will be system dependant)....
With Ardour's anywhere to anywhere routing and the mixers flexible digital routing, I'm looking forward to having 16 analog parametric eq's to use and am also keen to see how it performs as a summing mixer...
