[alsa-devel] RME HDSP + Multiface

Hello everybody,

I want to use a RME Multiface soundcard with PCMCIA Cardbus Card on a Dell
Notebook with Ubuntu.
I installed all alsa drivers and other available tools for the RME card
successfully and if I do:

aplay -D plughw:1 track1.wav

I can hear sound and see playback on PCM channels 1+2 in the hdspmixer,
which is a special softwaremixer for this card.

Now the card has 8 in and 8 output channels, and though I am able to send
the sound from PCM channels 1+2 to all physical outputs via the routing
functionalities of the hdspmixer, I need 6 more PCM channels to play through
all 8 physical channels independently. If I do:

aplay -l              or:                          cat /proc/asound/devices

I get only one digital playback device which is the 2 channels already
working as plughw:1. Where are my other PCM channels??

Thank you for any help!!!
