It is not a FW interface, but RME HDSP line has full-blown matrix mixer, and
Multiface supports disconnected operation (never tried it, though).

Btw, I also thought it is a good and modern idea to mix synths with
multichannel cards,
but now came to a conclusion, that good old mixer with several
subgroups and sends
is a much more convenient, user-friendly and problem-proof solution.
And it works without computer as well :)
