Dual Audiophile 2496 Soundcards

    Is anyone out there using two of these cards at the same time? I have one already and have been using the analog inputs via a small behringer mixer.

    I've just bought a Tampa pre amp and intend to connect it to the SPDIF in of the card to record vox.

    I reckon that I'll also want to record acoustic guitar at the same time and thought of buying another preamp with digital out for that purpose.

    This means thouh that I'll need another SPDIF in connector.

    Is it possible to use two 2496's at the same time and record to their SPDIF inputs simultaneously (to two seperate Cubase tracks)?

    Or will I need a new card? If so which one?

    Thanks for yor help!!!!!!!

    When you use multiple Delta cards, they need to sync with eachother vie their S/PDIF I/O's. In other words, you will only be able to use the analog ins on the cards, not the digital i/o's as those will be daisy chained togerther. Check this out:
