I'm sure, though, since I've tried exactly that - and it's only two 
channels, stereo.

How about this mailing list? AFAIK we're quite a lot of laptop users 
here! You might have look at Ableton Live as a suitable software since 
it is multitrack, has faders and a simple "midi learn" way of mapping 
external midi faders. Most questions about multi out/input laptop sound 
cards and break-out boxes  has been discussed at the Live forum and 
with the forum search function you can scan it for specific 
information. http://www.ableton.com/forum/
