Multiple Hammerfall DSP Cards
This may seem over the top to small system users, but I am interested in creating a studio with a massive amount of I/O capability. I picked the RME Multiface II sound card but it only has the capability of 18 input channels. What if I wanted to use two RME Multiface II cards as inputs to my PCI bus on a debbian based system? I know about the Digiface but I don't want to use it because it doesen't have analog inputs and it still doesent have enough I/O capabilities for me.
I noticed on the FAQ that it recommends not ganging cheap soundcards to make a multi-channel system, but the Multiface II cards are far from cheap. In using two of the Multiface II interfaces on one PCI bus, will I just slow down my computer's ability to take audio input? Will this completely cripple my PCI bus? Any thoughts?
