Ok, try bigger numbers. If I remember right, some Midiman cards had 12
inputs and 10 outputs. The point is that you have to specify the exact
channel count supported by your hardware. This is a ALSA 0.5.x feature. So
something like "ecasound -f:32,12,44100 -i:alsa,1,0 ...".
You can check ALSA device capabilities with 'pcmtest'. You'll find it in

Well, this is possible (using the channel-copy effect (-erc)), but isn't
very efficient. As ALSA 0.6.x will offer a cleaner solution, adding
similar routines to ecasound doesn't seem worth it.
