    Recommended Linux-Compatible Audio Recording Hardware


    Hello all,


    I want to convert a current Windows desktop to a Linux audio recording workstation, but I have a question as to what audio hardware is most compatible.

    Is there a specific brand that touts Linux support (like M-Audio, Tascam, Mackie, etc)?


    Thanks everyone for your support!

    I have read some positive things about RME's Hammerfall, but not every version of it.
    You should make sure the driver is in the mainline kernel already, not merely offered as a binary blob on the manufacturer's website. This means the driver is likely to have some active support. It will also run out of the box in that case.

    Maybe this matrix helps you a bit: (click and read the details)
