It could be that you are using MME, which only supports 2 channels per
device, you need ASIO for this. I believe that if your card doesn't have
ASIO and doesn't show up as several outputs when using MME, pd cannot
talk to it multichannel. You couls try asio4all, but I think I've heard
it's not working multichannel...
