Multiple Cymatic interface

Postby KeithP » Wed Mar 21, 2018 9:13 pm

Has anyone connected 2 Cymatic LP-16 to their HW computer, either via two USB inputs or via a USB Hub?
I understand that this is possible using the 24 channel units, but no certain advice regarding the LP-16.

I don't think it can be done with the Cymatic. If you recall in HW's Audio Setup you pick the driver you want to use so the ASIO driver would only recognize 1 Cymantic at a time (the 2nd interface might appear as "ASIO-1").

Certain MOTU brand interfaces have an AVB port (Audio Visual Bridge) which is a relatively new IEEE protocol. Focusrite brand interfaces have adopted the Dante protocol for audio distribution. Both of these brands allow connections of brethren interfaces (AVB or Dante) using CAT5. When this happens the units 'handshake' and the respective ASIO driver is now aware and the additional channels are present in the Hauptwerk's Audio
Setup channel assignments.

Side note, rumor has it that RME will be adopting the AVB standard.
