Not sure what to buy, not sure if what you have works?

We generally support everything that works with Jack. A good starting point (as most drivers are supplied by them) is to check out the Alsa Project's supported Hardware list. A few cards (mostly Firewire) are suppported via jack and ffado. Here is that list.

If you know of other methods to get an audio device to run in Bitwig Studio on Linux, don't hesitate, add a comment or another reply - and thank you!

From my own experience both Native Instruments Komplete Audio 6 and Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 work well right out of the box. Basically plug and play.

I had very good experience with (ordered by time): M-audio Delta 1010 Mackie Onyx i820 Behringer XR-18 (current)

All of them worked flawlessly, apart from delta1010 gain control I never understood how to operate.

Hope this helps. Fabrizio

I'm having a very good experience with a PreSonus 1818VSL. Requires latest firmware to work properly with USB 3, but no proprietary drivers are required because it's a class compliant USB device. I get 8 analogue in and outs plus ADAT. None of the PreSonus software works though - you lose all of the on board DSP, but if you just want a really solid card that works painlessly with Linux and has almost no latency, I'd recommend this model.
