Yes, the multitrack sound adaptors are really nice, but at the time there 
wasn't a good solution for breaking out each channel into a separate 
mountpoint for darkice to encode and feed icecast. I do believe it is 
possible with jack. I haven't tried this yet. Our sources are mono, so 
technically every soundcard could run two feeds (left + right).
