Tom, we have utilized an M-Audio USB based device for some recordings. It
worked fairly well under Linux (Ubuntu and SuSE). However, it was limited by
the available drivers. Specifically when we tried to change the recording
rate, it seemed that the linux drivers were not able to send the proper
instructions to the M-Audio device.
The tool we utilize is Audacity. It works quite nicely.
