Digigram (Montbonnot, France) will be making its source code available for its VX line of pro sound cards under open-source licensing. The Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) driver developers at SuSE Linux AG (Germany) will be managing the initial project to port Digigram's drivers to Linux.

The source code of the Mac OS X drivers and driver-interface documentation will be first made available through the ALSA project Website (www.alsa-project.org/). ALSA is incorporated into the Linux kernel and provides the foundation for several Linux-based audio applications.

"By releasing the source code of Digigram's VX card drivers under open source licensing, professional audio quality is enabled for a new community of laptop and desktop users," said SuSE VP of development Marcus Rex. "Advanced users and programmers who need special functionality can now take matters into their own hands and develop new solutions."

"There has been a strong demand to enable our audio interfaces know-how for Linux, handheld and other embedded operating systems," said Digigram managing director Philippe Delacrois. "We are creating professional portability and reliability for applications, which, until now, have not had access to our audio technologies.
