a *very* odd question especially for me.

Hi Jude,
I am not sure what you mean by a remote provider.
Given I have an entire production studio, recording the material should not 
be an issue.  also, it is my understanding that the various Linux programs 
for  music work can recognize a device connected to the sound card,  i. e. 
a midi cable running from a keyboard to the midi port on the  card itself. 
The card is not doing the recording, it is providing the playback through  the 
speakers.  the software  with the ability to recognize a four duplex card is 
managing the recording.
All this is done on a computer sitting in my office, assuming a real Linux 
installation can be done with these goals in mind.
All this of course assumes I am even on the same page as your idea.
