hola josé,

although it can be a bit funny [and a bit expensive], i still love my 
Hammerfall DSP card. it has seperate interfaces for laptop and desktop 
machines, and has no problems running simultaneous 8 inputs and outputs. 
it gets amazing low latency under ASIO, and with some tuning you can get 
it to run pretty well with Jack under Linux. see here for Linux 
configuration details:


i will be using one for a multichannel installation at Medienturm in 

have a look at VBAP for spatialization software:

good luck
