Recommended 8+ channel interfaces MC8?

According to your experiences, what recording interface that has more than 8 channels (up tp 16) would you recommend for Mixcraft Pro Studio 8? I record a lot of live sessions, so I need at least one with 12 inputs.

Thanks in advance.

I've been using a Zoom R16 8 channel interface for our live jamming sessions and it's been awesome. You can chain two of them together for 16 simultaneous inputs. Personally, I just record to SD card and move it into Mixcraft later. But it can be hooked up directly by USB as a multi-channel interface, too. I paid $250 for it used. I'm no expert, but I've been super happy with the quality of the recordings. Not to mention it can be run on battery which makes it great for mobile recording.

I like recording to SD card cause it's just easier since I'm typically playing, too, and I don't like the hassle of trying to manage the DAW and play at the same time.
