I have finally done my recording using [writesf~] without any problem

About Audacity, why not, but the same ASIO problem will remain, won't it ? I 
think it's possible to select only some of the ASIO tracks in Nuendo, I just 
have to see how (this is a big program, so I didn't have a look at everything)

What a pity there is no Jack protocol under Windows ... (does anyone know a 
similar program ?)

I also use Linux, but (at least until last summer) the ALSA driver wasn't 
compatible with the latest HDSP firmware, and my HDSP is very new ... It was 
also impossible to downgrade the firmware. I don't remember what the problems 
were exactly, but I spent over 2 months on it without any success.

I may wait until the ALSA driver is the generic Linux sound driver (it will be 
integrated in the Linux 2.5 kernel). Also, PlanetCCRMA has upgraded to ALSA 
9.6, maybe it is worth trying a new CCRMA Linux configuration ...

have a nice day
