i am new to mumble so trying to understand if i can run a server that has multiple channels with multiple users on those channels listening/talking capability at the same time? i have been looking thru the documentation but havent found anything yet. Thanks for the help.

You can link the channels, so the audio is plumbed to multiple channels at once, and then control that behaviour using ACL rules, which results in a rather complicated system (the canonical example is a tree where squad leaders can talk to each other and their squad, but members in the squad can only hear each other and their commander). You can also whisper/"shout" to channels you're not in.

As far as the UI is concerned though, you're only ever in one channel at a time.
Full disclosure: I used to run a commercial Mumble host, and my opinions do not reflect the opinions of the Mumble project.
