RE: [linrad] How many sound cards for Linrad?

No, but...

When you use the Delta44 for 96 kHz input, the output will
also be 96kHz. Linrad does not contain any efficient routine for
increasing the sampling speed so setting the output to 96kHz will
require a lot of processing. My Pentium III at 650 MHz is not quite 
fast enough for that, but a 2 GHz PIV could probably do it.

Unless you go for 96kHz, one soundcard is enough.
