Ability to input 4 audio sources

Hi there!

I just want the ability to launch Winamp/DSP 4 times (4 sources) and have each instance capture it's own stream. I have an 8 input MOTU capture device for this.

For example, my radio station setup would be like this:

Classic Rock: Audio Input 1-2
Talk Sports: Audio Input 3-4
Ambient: Audio Input 5-6
News: Audio Input 7-8

In each example, its a stereo pair I would capture audio for.

I need to be able to capture audio from each station, encode them separately on a single computer and then send each separate stream to my IceCast / Shoutcast server.

See the attached screen shot. The 'Input Device' only defaults to 'Soundcard' input (which is set to only Input 1-2). So if I had just 1 radio station, this would be easy. But I have 4 radio stations here locally.

The Input Device dropdown does not have the multi inputs which are in fact available. The funny thing is the multi inputs DO appear on the Soundcard Mixer Control on th bottom which is weird. I don't know why the Input Device dropdown only has the one option.

As it stands, it looks as if I need to buy 4 computers and each with it's own capture card in order to do this but really I'd like to be able to do this with one computer.

Any thoughts, ideas on how I can load Winamp 4 times along with DSP and then have each edition of DSP with it's own separate input for each station?

Thank you so much!
