Good question.  I've been doing a little research, and it's difficult to
find something that meets his criteria.  Most things that say they are
"16 channel" apparently are using Mackie Math when they add them up, and
others that provide USB 2.0 connectivity never claim to be able to
handle 16 channels simultaneously through USB.


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.'
