getting audio into logic

so i'm trying to help our composer set up a good way to get audio recorded into his logic setup. forgive me for not being a logic expert per se....

basically, he uses alot of samples from the esX internally, but also has racks of outboard samplers, synths, etc. i'm looking for any cheap way to get all those external things IN to logic somehow, preferably with half way decent audio quality. some of the files will end up in a finished product, so the quality needs to be good, but its not like we're using this as a final mix platform.

ok so anyways, the lead contender right now is the event EZbus. it looks somewhat cheesy, but seems like he could at least get his synths mixed and into logic via spdif if nothing else. anyone know if the usb functionality of this little box will allow him to get individual channels to show up in logic?

of course there are the motu firewire boxes but those seem pricey for what we need in this case.

also, there is the 6|2 from logic, but 6 inputs won't get him very far.

sorry for the long post - any info appreciated!

How many inputs does he need to record at once? If he only needs 2-4 inputs maybe he should get a smaller less expensive interface and a line mixer or patchbay for all the synth outputs.

well he's got racks full of synths, but it would be nice to have 4-5+ stereo inputs that could be recorded seperately. this saves him from having to do multiple passes when recording down parts for a mix...
