Forgot to mention that I am running Sequoia 11 on the Windows Vista Ultimate, not version 10.

Running Samp 11 pro on win 7 32bit, lynx drivers - Rock solid. The machine is a gigabyte system.

When Samp/Seq Pro X (64 bit) is out i will consider switching up the OS to 64bit.

And regarding win 7 vs xp, win 7 is far superior in every way. Awesome OS.

Agreed!
Win7 does show, high-end requirements are better handled in Windows 7. Superior optimization overall, for multicore CPUs.

Nonetheless, my personal needs haven’t changed much, thus, sticking to what’s always worked.
Future proofing not a requirement as yet.

Couple of reads of the given below, should clear up the fog, Brad.

I'm also looking for the same thing, a new DAW, Windows 7, probably running Samplitude. So far it seems like the RME or the Lynx are the firm faves, but the Lynx is a lot cheaper. Is it worth paying an extra $300 or so for the RME? And is it worth goping for the PCIe versions over the PCI versions? And are there really no "smaller" digital AES interfaces? It seems something with two stereo outs and one stereo input would be ideal fro mastering. Do any of you do anything fancy with all the extra digital ins and outs?

Sorry, lots of questions!

i've been running system outs (itunes, quicktime, web, etc) on a different set of digital outs, and the DAW on another dedicated set... nice to be able to switch to and from things.

Are any of these cards able to handle multiple sampling rates simultaneously on the same card? I'm guessing not, but curious...

Brad,
I see that the AES16 has an SRC version. From what I can tell 4 of the digital inputs are capable of doing mastering quality sample rate conversion.

The way I see this working is if the internal clock is at a different rate those inputs would be resampled to the internal rate of the card. There is not any specifics on that in the online manual so I'm guessing.

I would inquire with a Lynx dealer about it.

Just found this...

There is an Alan Silverman review up on Lynx's site.
http://www.lynxstudio.com/news_media_detail.asp?i=19

He is using Sequoia at two different sample rates probably like you would want to do.

His cards are the LynxTwo and the AES16 and running on XP.
