I agree. Unfortunatelly we're stuck with PC and Microsoft.

The thing is that in lots of cases we have different sound boards for
USB microphones are very common nowadays, not to mention DV audio.
I wouldn't doubt if the same soundboard had different clock for in/out,
though. That would be a weird design, but what's not weird in computer
design these days?
Keep up with good work,
