A bit off topic but..

The MOTU AVB series interfaces are ultra flexible and contains an embedded
48ch mixer with eq, compressor, gate, reverb and busses fully customizable
and you can control everything from any web browser on the same network.
Expandable via adat and/or more devices on the same AVB network. Fully
class compliant and works pretty well with Linux. You can even let the
musicians control their own monitor mixes via the aux-mix view.

The MOTU device can be used as "Soundcard" "Standalone mixer" "Studio
extension" Stage box with or without monitor mixin" but that is only
presets that you can change to suit your needs and things can saved as new

I also have a Fireface 800 and the MOTU device seems to be on par sound

I don't work for MOTU but I like my MOTU cards a lot.
