in windows you save a textfile as PDXYZ.bat
then you can copy a link of that to your startmenu or desktop and just klick 
on it
the commandline should be like you wrote, but you can only open one 
sounddevice for in and one for out (if you have a multichannel-card, use the 
lowest device.number of that card, the other channels should be switched on 
by -outchannels 4 (or 6...).
