Really? I'm almost sure that emu10k2 is capable of 64 streams at 16/44.1
(48kHz) resolution.

A friend of mine does 16 channel recordings on 1820m under windows, so it's 
definitely possible. I have only 1212M (old version) and it's capable of 12 
ins and 12 outs at 44.1/48kHz, 8 ins and 8 outs at 96kHz and finally 4 ins 
and 4 outs at 192kHz.

How much difference is between current 1820 (old 1010)  and 1616 (new 1010) 
code? Do you have something working? Anyway, I have good relations with local 
e-mu delaer, so I can borrow any e-mu hardware currently available. I also 
have gear needed for testing S/PDIF/ADAT/sync card functionality.
