of all OS4 supported sound cards.
The mixer also supports loading and saving of settings (including
automatic loading of settings on startup), and can be conveniently used
as a Workbench Commodity.
Davy is also currently working on support for two more audio cards.

card, to address the need for higher-end cards with digital I/O, by the
more demanding user.
More news on this will follow in the coming weeks.
