the line sound quality is excellent here (on said g3 @ 400 mhz 
pismo), but isn't the card supposed to support mic level inputs as 
well? last time i tried, this did not work properly (lots of noise 
and too little gain). can somebody confirm the card supports two mic 
level ins and briefly describe the alsamixer setting to use it?



The handles of a craftsman's tools bespeak an absolute simplicity,
the plainest forms affording the greatest range of possibilities for
the user's hand.
That which is overdesigned, too highly specific, anticipates
outcome; the anticipation of outcome guarantees, if not failure, the
absence of grace.
