Neither of the two you list meet your criteria.  The Tascam only
provides 14 inputs (not counting the S/PDIF), and the Firefly is
Firewire only.

I don't know of a 16x4 USB device right off hand.


My blog, with commentary on a variety of things, including audio,
mixing, equipment, etc, is at:
Staat heißt das kälteste aller kalten Ungeheuer.  Kalt lügt es auch;
und diese Lüge kriecht aus seinem Munde: 'Ich, der Staat, bin das Volk.'
