M-Audio has the Delta 44 which is 4in and 4out. With a small
breakout-box to jack in your cables...
PCI has the advantage that rather a lot of cards are tested and
functional on linux.

If you prefer USB, you won't find 4x4 devices. Because usb1.1 can only
carry four streams reliable (which is stereo in and out) and usb2.0
hasn't an audio standard, so most of these devices don't work on

Firewire has some devices available through the FreeBob-project, but
the devices with more channels aren't cheap. (You didn't say anything
about the money you want to spend.)

So long,

Wenn man mit Raubkopien Bands wie Brosis oder Britney Spears wirklich
verhindern könnte, würde ich mir noch heute einen Stapel Brenner und
einen Sack Rohlinge kaufen.
