If use hw:0,1, no "-c 4" is allowed. That is why I use plughw see following:
arecord -f S16_LE -r 48000 -c 4 -D hw:0,1 --separate-channels c1.wav c2.wav c3.wav c4.wav
Recording raw data 'c1.wav' : Signed 16 bit Little Endian, Rate 48000 Hz, Channels 4
arecord: set_params:1048: Access type not available
hw:0,1 works with no "-c" option only. I even try it on my laptop.
