OK, I'm beaten. I'm running an 8 core macpro with a MOTU 828 mk3 and the H8000fw both on FW.
I went to audio set up and have tried a selection of drivers to build as an aggregate. At the moment the 8000, MOTU and all of the native drivers (just in case). I then have chosen the aggregate device in logic. This gives me 34 channels or so in an out (although there should be 40 if they are all added up). I cannot get any sound in or out of either device, I cannot send a loop to either device, no matter which output I choose nothing seems to be going out.
If I choose the MOTU or 8000 as the audio device then audio again appears.
Any chance of some friendly advice 😉
