native instruments komplete audio 64×4 USB2 interface with SPDIF and MIDI. Listed as supported in ALSA by the manufacturer Some people experience issues powering more than one condenser microphone as it is powered purely via USB. Hardware + Linux, Audio Interface 
e-mu 0404 pcieE-MU 0404 PCIe has: * Two 1/4” Unbalanced Inputs * Two 1/4” Unbalanced Outputs * 24-bit/96kHz S/PDIF In/Out (switchable to AES/EBU) * MIDI In/Out As of August 2013 reported as not supporting higher than 48kHz or duplex 24 bit. Emutrix mixer should support this interface. 
ESI Juli@PCI and PCIe interfaces. * 2×2 24-bit/192kHz * Swappable balanced/unbalanced sockets * S/PDIF * MIDI Described as being Linux compatible via ALSA. * PCIe reported working Hardware + Linux 
focusrite scarlettUSB Audio/MIDI, Audio Interface, Hardware + Linux Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 worked out of the box with my Xubuntu 12.04. Even after many hours of continuous operation there are no instabilities, cyloning or distortions. Very reliable. It works ok up to 96 kHz with JACK. 
Hardware MatrixThis page is intended as a reference for hardware that can be used for recording in Linux. There are other lists, e.g. the Alsa one, but some are out of date and they are not generally aimed at recording. Each device (or family of devices) should have a page detailing the capabilities, what works on Linux and what additional software is required (if any). 
Hardware supportThis page is meant to give a quick, user-friendly overview of current pro and semi-pro audio interfaces. It should reflect the linux driver support state of the ALSA and FFADO projects with a recent >= 2.6.39 stable kernel. Soundcards ~0-200 $us 
M-Audio PCI Interfaces* Audiophile 2496 - 2×2 analog + 2×2 S/PDIF and MIDI. Up to 96kHz/24 bit * Audiophile 192 - 2×2 analog + 2×2 S/PDIF and MIDI. Up to 192kHz/24 bit * Delta 44 - 4 in, 4 out with external connection box * Delta 66 - 6 in, 6 out with external connection box. 4 analogue + S/PDIF * Delta 1010 - 10 in, 10 out with external connection box. 8 analogue + S/PDIF + MIDI * Delta 1010LT - 10 in, 10 out. 8 analogue (2 XLR with mic pre-amps) + S/PDIF + MIDI. May offer better audio quality than 1010(?… 
Raspberry Pi and realtime, low-latency audioThe Raspberry Pi can be set up to handle realtime, low-latency audio but it requires quite some tweaking. Hence this Wiki article in which some common bottlenecks as well as some possible optimizations will be described. Last but not least this article will explain how to get JACK aka jackd running on your RPi.
