For example:

In Audition can you output with the ASIO driver with all channels? That's a
way to debug the issue... I have a MOTU Ultralite mk3 (which has no FFADO
support still for Linux) so I use it under Pd on Win XP, ASIO works fine and
I always use "MOTU ASIO" as the output then the dac object allows me to
select a mulitudee of channels like: [dac~ 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8]

Try "ASIO saffire" inside audition, create a multichannel with sine waves
and output each track to a different channel, check if it works that way.
Maybe its just a misconfigured ASIO (reinstall the saffire drivers could do
the trick).

Best of luck,
