Hi Simon,
This application has been discussed here already (https://www.max2play.com/forums/topic/multisqueeze-mit-logflink-7-1-usb-soundkarte/). However, it was unfortunately a German thread. So I will try to convey the discussion in English with the technical logs and commands inserted.

kippi has a Logilink 7.1 and wants to give each channel on the card a different binding. He uses the Premium Plugin „Multisqueeze“ for these separate channels. In Audioplayer he sets the parameter „-o hw:1,0“, the sound card as USB sound card and sysdefault….alsa
In MultiSqueeze he goes to the Advanced Options and puts in „-o garage“ (which refers to a binding in the asound.conf)

He then configures the following under asound.conf (where he set up the sound card and split up the bindings by testing them with headphones):

`pcm_slave.logilink {
pcm “hw:1,0″
channels 8
rate 44100
# format “S16_LE”
# periods 128
# period_time 0
period_size 1024
buffer_size 4096
}

pcm.garage {
type plug
slave.pcm {
type dshare
ipc_key 1024
ipc_key_add_uid false
ipc_gid audio
ipc_perm 0660
slave logilink
bindings [ 0 1 ]
}
}

pcm.bad {
type plug
slave.pcm {
type dshare
ipc_key 1024
ipc_key_add_uid false
ipc_gid audio
ipc_perm 0660
slave logilink
bindings [ 2 ]
}
}

pcm.schlaf {
type plug
slave.pcm {
type dshare
ipc_key 1024
ipc_key_add_uid false
ipc_gid audio
ipc_perm 0660
slave logilink
bindings [ 7 ]
}
}

I hope this helped you. If you still have questions about the setup, you might contact kippi in his thread.
