the Soundcraft interface is untested with anything more than 6 channels of audio. Up until a few weeks ago I've been recording with an old MOTU 8pre, both the interface and HDD connected via Firewire.
I take it then, that USB could be a significant backwards step compared to that setup?
There have been 8 channel USB 2.0 interfaces around for well over a decade, most notably the Tascam US16-08 and I never read a negative report about one?
Firewire might have the edge over USB 2.0 for a high track count AND very low latency (but then RME seem to do that ok!) but you are just tracking?
