Your old Tascam unit may be limited to one channel when used as a USB audio interface but that's it's limitation, not USB's. There are plenty of USB audio interfaces that will let you record up to 32 channels. And you can combine multiple audio interfaces in 'aggregate device' configuration to expand that way too.

PS. Looking at that Tascam unit...
I think it was simply never intended to function as an audio interface with even one channel. It looks like it does stand-alone recording only. The USB connection only lets you put it into target disk mode to transfer files.

PPS. Firewire, thunderbolt, or audio over network would give you higher channel counts too if needed. For 8 - 16 inputs, many USB models will hit the mark.
