I'm not sure if I undertand the question. The 1010 has 8 analog
inputs/outputs plus spdif. There is an internal (in the chipset) digital
mixer that can be used to do a mixdown to stereo. There is a digital
patchbay that defines what goes to the outputs, you can select any input
or spdif channel and the outputs of the internal mixer (channels 1/3/5/7
can get the left, 2/4/6/8 the right). 

The app to use to control all this is envy24control and is part of the
alsa-tools package.
