Is that even possible? Even with USB 2.0, which might have shaky linux

Good question.  I've been doing a little research, and it's difficult to
find something that meets his criteria.  Most things that say they are
"16 channel" apparently are using Mackie Math when they add them up, and
others that provide USB 2.0 connectivity never claim to be able to
handle 16 channels simultaneously through USB.

It should be perfectly possible to do this over USB 2.0; I'm just not sure you'll find a device to do it that's supported under Linux. There are definitely Firewire devices that'll do it, though: I know my Saffire PRO40 can do it (it has 8 analog inputs, and an ADAT port that's good for 8 more), and I'm sure there are other devices that can do the same.
