Not for my domain. My iPad, as well as my Linux audio workstation
provide the class compliant USB audio driver to use my prosumer audio
devices, but they don't provide the software for the audio device's
hardware mixer. My Linux audio workstation doesn't provide the latest
version of the mixer for my professional audio PCIe card, let alone
that not all channels of the card are usable and that latency via the
PCIe slot for this professional audio card is less good, as for the
prosumer USB audio interface.

The professional card is a and the prosumer
audio device is a .

Since I don't own other Apple gear and Windows only is installed as a
guest to a virtual machine, to run iTunes, to store my iPad purchases
and to share files with my Linux audio workstation, I indeed don't
have up to date experiences with other Apple operating systems and
Windows, but I know what's missing for my audio devices and I knmow
that I need to run a virtual machine with a Windows guest to store the
iPad's purchases and to share audio and MIDI files between Linux and
the iPad.
