A new piece of monster hardware

Since a few days, there is now a new black monster sitting right next to my monitor: Although it's just an external sound card, its still bigger than my mac mini for example. Instead of the usual 2 ports (microphone, sound output) I am used to, this thing has about 20. Twenty ports! Additionally, there are numerous switches and adjusters coming out of it, so it really looks quite complicated:


Unfortunately, I have no idea what to do with this thing, I only bought it to add a new feature causing irrKlang to work on Mac OS X with hardware like this thing. But at least it looks quite impressive. ;)

six comments, already:

I think this card is mainly for hobby music producers. It offers a lot of nice things if you want to record your stuff, don’t know if you need that. It offers standard music driver support, the ASIO system, which was designed for studio use. I hope you write a comment here if you have it up and running with irrKlang.

I think I will still need it to test compatibility with it in the future, unfortunately :)
@brainsaw: irrklang already works with it (since version 1.1.2b).

@niko: that’s nice to hear. I read through the irrKlang page on ambiera.com and have seen that you included some effects. Are these compiled into the engine or do you use external effects, like VST effects also defines by Steinberg?
