More newbie ponderings regarding this:
One thing that is a bit unclear to me regarding needs, is what exactly 
outputs are used for. If you want to use different softsynths through 
,say Rosegarden, and maybe some audio tracks simultaneously, but only 
need to produce a stereo mix, or even create a CD directly, do you need 
more than a pair of outputs? What would the benefits of added outputs be?

Best regards,
