Run 2 M-Audio Delta sound cards simultaneously?

    I currently run a Delta 44 for my analog interface, but I am wondering if it is possible to run another Delta card simultaneously.

    If not, can you recommend another good quality analog i/o soundcard, with more than 4 channels, and other than an M-Audio product?

    I don't think you can run another card along side the Delta 44. It is possible to use several delta cards within one system, but they use teh S/PDIF i/o to sync to eachother. The Delta 44 doesn't have S/PDIF. Therefore, there is no way to sync the word clock together on each card.

    I think you're out of luck/

    Hey freelight, welcome to RO. :)

    Eric, the software control panel can synchronize the cards internally, so you actually can use up to four cards simultaneously.

    As I have never used more than one Delta Series card at a time, i just relied on the information found here:

    so, im getting a mixed message here...

    it is or isnt possible to run more than one delta 44 in the same system?
    and if so can they literally be used simultaneously? or would i have to switch from one to the other?

    I am almost positive that you dohn't need a master chock and SPDIF cable. Perhaps that website was simpy referring to a method for syncing cards when you have a high quality clock that you wish to use. The only way to find out for sure now it to contact them.

    i use the 1010 and the doumentation that come with it says that you can rum upto four via the word clock i/o whitch the 44 does not have. but thats the 1010's documentaion not the 44's. read the manual, and if it does not say yes then i would assume no
