that's what I'm using it for (live events in a conference room)

you have a choice between multiple M-audio Delta 1010 (up to 4 cards, so
that's 32 inputs and 32 outputs) or an RME with the appropriate AD/DA
the solution with the M-audio is much cheaper though

yes, me :D

I have a test ardour at home, hasn't crashed in 1+ month, 24/7
> Thank you in advance. Any further list submissions, I will keep short.
