2 soundcards in 1 PC


I am wondering if it is easy to use 2 soundcars on 1 PC. The soundcards in question are: RME DIGI968/PRO which is a PCI-card, and M-Audio Profire Lightbridge, which connects to the computer through a firewire cable. We dont want to use the 2 soundcards simultaneosly. We use Cubase
Thanks in advance!!

shouldn't be a problem. some hardware doesn't like to see other hardware connected..like the digi stuff..you can't use them at the same time but they can both be connected

Still the best thing to do is to have 2 smililar cards to avoid driverissues (asio).

So lets say for example, you can have Nuendo running using the MOTU HD 192s with the PCI 424 card, go through a summing box and then go into Cubase using a (Insert very high end converter and soundcard here) all on the same computer at the same time?
