FFADO (Free FireWire Audio Drivers) is a project to provide open-source drivers for FireWire sound interfaces on Linux. The project started as FreeBoB, a driver specifically for FireWire audio devices based on technology made by BridgeCo, which use an interface known as BeBoB. The current version allows such devices to be accessed via Jack.

Following a presentation of a paper at the 2007 Linux Audio Conference outlining the future of the project, on March 26, 2007, it was announced that the project would be renamed to FFADO, as the drivers are being rewritten to include support for other FireWire audio chipsets.
