Logic Pro 6 using old AW8 as DAE

    if you're familiar with logic, you probably know exactly why i'm asking this....

    how can you use the Audiowerk8 interface as a DAE device, so that you can have a few extra in's and outs along with the core audio device??? i know it can be done.

    the disc that came with the audiowerk8 has as installer for it as a DAE, but i'm on OSX now, and i can't find that kind of driver for it!!!

    i really do need to be able to record more than 8 tracks at a time!!!

    anyone got any ideas???

    wow! i read for the first time that you can use anything but digidesign hardware with the dae! i don't think that this is possible with an audiowerk...also, logic under osx does not support multiple audio cards (yet).

    here's the thing, OSX Logic does not support multiple CORE AUDIO devices, which is what your interfaces are going to be. a few years back, when the Audiowerk 8 was "the $*^t," it could be used as a DAE in pro-tools,,,, Logic's Audio Driver settings allow for multiple "types" of interfaces including "core audio (replacing asio drivers)" "VS" "DAE" and "TDM." but only ONE of each. that's where i'm getting. if i can get OSX to recognize the AW8 as a DAE, Bam, there's 2 extra in's and 8 extra outs!!!

    oh well, i'll probably have to wait for the multiple core audio device support :roll:

    well, i really didn't know about that whole audiowerk/dae story, very interesting.

    from what i've read in the fireface/rme manual dp is currently the only program that supports multiple audio interfaces...
