Hi all,

I am in the process of considering a portable USB audio interface. Having 
checked the alsa matrix, I am a bit at a loss what may be the best option.

Things I am looking for are as follows (they are listed in no particular 

1) USB interface
2) Preferrably USB 2.0 capable
3) Audio and MIDI capability
4) High fidelity (higher the better)
5) More inputs/outputs, the better
6) Preferrably has some preamp inputs
7) Obviously must be supported in Linux/Alsa
8) Price not an issue

Any ideas?

Best wishes,
