I don't need multichannel audio into the PC, I do the mixing and the insert effects (using rack FX units) on the mixer. I only record the final mix over SPDIF into the PC using audacity.

But as I said there are more modern desktop mixers that have built in multichannel audio over USB.

Here is the beast. You can see side by side the 2 pci cards : on the left the Digi 96/8 Pad and on the right the daughter card with 4 stereo inputs (line level).

As you know, jack settings may sometimes be a little tricky, but after some tweakings, I have good results. Latency is 5,3 ms at 48000Hz, with no so much xruns.
