[linux-audio-user] light multitrack recording

i'm wondering what you all would recommend as the least resource-consuming
(in terms of cpu/memory usage) method for multitrack recording. i need to
record 18 channels (each to its own file) of 44.1kHz float audio in a live
setting, while simultaneously running some looping and FX, so i'd like to
keep the recording chain as lean as possible.
curiously, my tests have shown significantly lower average system load
using ardour than using ecasound. i was surprised by this, having assumed
that ecasound would be the solution. so now i'm wondering if other options
might be even better than ardour. maybe a recorder built in pd? i do need
metering, preferably with resettable peak indicators.
thanks, in advance, for any advice or suggestions!
