I'm looking for an audio interface with about 8 inputs that serves as a mixer as well, so I could record several channels and play them back to a PA at the same time. An example would be the Behringer Xenix 802, although I'm not fixed on any particular number of inputs.
I would like to use it under Linux, on a Gentoo. I asked Behringer in an eMail and received the response "Officially none of the Behringer audio devices are supported under linux." So, which of them are supported unofficially, maybe with a community-contributed driver?
Or, more generally, what mixer audio interfaces work well under Linux? In other words, for which interfaces exist good drivers? It should run stable (hours without crashes or XRUNS) on a low latency (at most 64 samples) under JACK.
