argh, you're right. Sorry for the traffic.

True. I simply want to get rid of this monster rack mixer. What I basically 
need is a 28x28 patchpanel with software patchcables and firewire 
connectivity :) .

The SAFFIRE PRO 26 I/O looks interesting. If I got you correctly you'd plug in 
an adat interface as an a/d converter, right? If there an adat device with 16 
line ins?

foh?? Anyway, sooner or later I fear I will need such a setup. Or how do other 
people connect a handful of synths to a computer?
