Actually this is easy...
ecasound -f:32,12,44100 -i alsa,1,0 -f:32,4,44100 -o 4ch-file.wav
Here, the default chain has 12 channels. In fact, chain channel count
is always max(input-ch-count,output-ch-count). Without -erc and -erm
effects, input-ch-n is always copied to chain-ch-n, and eventually to
output-ch-n. If input has fewer channels than the chain, then those
chain channels will contain silence. Similarly, if chain has more channels
than the output object, extra channels are ignored during output phase.

No problem, you can use it during normal processing.
