I'll confess that I'm quite new to Linux in general, so please don't assume anything when answering.
I've been trying to find information online about this audio device. People generally claim that they got it working, but most of the chat about it was from 2007 and they make reference to things like FreeBoB which has now been superceeded by ffado.
They also refer to Jack. I think this is for internal routing of audio, which I don't currently need, afaik.
Mostly I just want to play audio out via this device. All my music creation software is done using Windows/Mac software for now.
I'm worried I'm going to break my system in my naivety, so any tips would be appreciated.
