Raspberry usb is not great, and some audio devices work while others do not, 
there is apparently an 8-channel output device that works ... search this list 
for details ... it seems you are most likely to have luck with basic consumer 
level devices. I had good results with a simple, very cheap stereo output card, 
but that is a much simpler setup than what you are asking for.

of course also the audio card needs to have linux drivers ... mostly this means 
that the device needs to use standard usb audio drivers not its own special 
driver, and looking at the tascam specs it seems to need its own drivers 
installed to work in windows and OSX, which is not a good sign.
