I've been doing a lot of reading on this board!  It looks like the USB
is full duplex; it will send 24 channels (20 + the stereo "playback" + 
stereo mains) out and receive 22 channels (20 + "playback").

On paper, USB 2.0 will provide enough bandwidth for all channels, but the
devil will be in the details.  Coming from the live sound perspective, the
workflow here is really nice, and the USB channel inserts should allow 
interesting things.  One forum had a discussion about using this along
with Harrison Mixbus to master and get the bonus of the board's analog
summing which could be an amazing thing.

I will definitely give some feedback on this when it finally ships!
