"Going portable" is a real challenge! I'm investigating the possibility to
use my RME multiface audio break-out box (8 in, 8 out) with a laptop. This
looks as a good way to combine hardware devices and software. The most
portable mixer I know is actually Ableton Live. With the Multiface I can
assign just about everything like you do with a huge mixing board and patch
bay. The other week I tried the guitar amp simulator that comes with Apple
Garage Band and it sounds good to my ears. But there's still a long way 
setting up a system that works "in the lab" to being able to rely on it 
gigging in the real world.
