is a FREE, professional HDD audio recording system for linux operating systems,
written using tcl/tk. Available in release version 3.1, and beta 4.040.

I highly recommend it, if you are using GNU/linux

NOTE: In my usage so far, I have a SB awe64, and needs to be used in half duplex mode. Since the awe64 isnt really full duplex, its sorta full half duplex. What it really means is that they cheated you into thinking its a full duplex card. Its really a 16bit/8bit duplex. But its got some nice MIDI stuff. Used /dev/dspW.
I also have successfully used a SB PCI 128
in FULL duplex mode (OSS non-free version)
[sub fragment, /dev/dspW] cheap piece of *&$&^as it is, at least its full 16/16 bit.

Now, if only Alesis would write a linux driver for it's ADAT-EDIT sound card, I would be set.
I would appreciate everyone emailing ALESIS and asking them to support a linux driver., and that you would buy an ADAT/EDIT card if they did.
:o)

I have put up some screenshots and other info here. The official SLab web site is HERE.
SLab takes a bit to learn how to use, but is very professional, and easy to use, once you know how.
