    Its an odd question I know, but Im locked into the Sun Sparc to do some basic 4 channel recording. Are you aware of any audio interfaces that are compatible with the Sun Solaris OS which uses the Spark processor? I have found a Sun Hardware compatibility lists for Solaris but using Intel X86. It could be any interface, PCI, USB etc.
    Thank you for any tips

    The Sparc compatibility list for "audio" on the Sun site gives zero entries, so you may be out of luck for anything that is supported directly. I certainly don't know of any multi-channel interfaces that had drivers for Solaris/Sparc. Many of the native Sparc boards had rudimentary sound chips, but never more than stereo capability as far as I am aware.

    What about getting a Zoom H4N 4-track recorder, hook it up to a PC or laptop via USB, and then transfer the .wav files from the PC to the Sparcstation over a TCP/IP network? The H4N has a pair of built-in stereo mics plus XLR connectors for two more external microphones (with phantom power if you need it).
