I'd like to know this as well. Is there any external hardware that can be used 
with audacity to treat it as a mixer?  That would be great

Hi!

Do you know if Audacity will tread the mixer as a device with more than a 
stereo input?
So you can get your different channels in their own track?
Like you channel 1 could be yourself. Channel 2 could be your guest. Channel 3 
could be another device etc.

Best regards
Thomas
