I have played around with the buffer sizes of ALSA and seem to be limited to a maximum buffer size of 16384 frames.  Is it possible to increase this buffer to a larger size?  I have tried this on a number of other cards(such as the RME 9652 and intel HDA) and have the same problem.  Is it possible to recompile the driver with a larger buffer?
