I was under the impression that CardDeluxe
was no longer available. Please correct me if I'm wrong, since I love mine and would hope I could replace it or add to it in the future for those multiple inputs.

> Thanks to Bruce and Richard for their replies. I should probably outline my reasons for asking in the first place. We're working on a Grammy Foundation grant to digitize a number of tapes. We currently have M-Audio Delta 1010 and Delta 66 interfaces which allow for a maximum sampling frequency of 96 kHz at 24 bits. Aside from the fact that the sampling frequency and bit rates just squeak by and the units have break out boxes I question whether this statement on page 2 of Grammy's methodology document relegates the Deltas to the garbage can.

That's just plain wrong; there are some excellent in-the-computer
interfaces out there, including CardDeluxe and Lynx. I understand why
the requirement is in there, though; they want to make sure grantees
don't use a SoundBlaster or the usual junk built onto the motherboard.
Well, external Lynx is excellent.

Whether it records as .wav or .bwv is strictly a function of the
software. Reaper should do the job for you.
