What is a good PC sound card for multi-track audio editing?

I need a good sound card that supports multi-track ASIO editing as well as 7.1 surround sound editing, as my sound editing software requires this. I need it primarily for hardware mixing versus recording, as the sounds I need to mix are already in digital format. In short, I don't need much in the line of inputs, but I do need a lot of streams and the ability to do fast hardware effects. I used to use the Audigy ZS\Pro series which worked well to this purpose, but these have been discontinued.

"I've like the Echo cards for sound-recording. I have an older Layla. I believe the newer versions will support what you are doing.

Im waiting for USB3.0 to become more prominent. It seems that would finally bring USB recording devices up to par with the PCI devices. Maybe something will be announced at CES this weekend?
