2 FireWire devices on 1 stream?

July 02, 2013 - 02:04 am

Dear fellow forum-members,

I am planning on buying a Eventide H8000fw, but I'd first like to know if it's possiblke to use it's FireWire-capabilities while I'm already using a MetricHalo 2882 on my MacPro's FireWire-bus. I am using all of the 18ins and 18outs of this stream already. 

My question: If I make an aggregate device consisting of the MetricHalo'd driver and the H8000fw's driver, am I able to send&receive 18ins and 18outs to&from the MetricHalo and 8 sends&returns to&from the H8000fw ?

Any advice appreciated!

Thanks in andvance.

You should be able to do this,although it is better to use separate ports where possible. Your computer will probably be the limiting factor.
