TC electronic Digital Konnekt X32 Question

I have a question and was hoping someone could answer this for me.

If I am using 8 Channels of AES, can I use 4 Channels of Coaxial Spidif on top of that, or am I limited to 8 channels?

Trying to find a way to use a 4 AD, 4 DA Lavry Blue with a eventide 2016 reverb via coaxial spidif at the same time on a firewire connection. (running a laptop)

Also, would it be better for me to run clock from the Lavry, or the TC Konnekt?

Thank you, and sorry in advance if this isn't supposed to be in the High End section.

I'd like info on how to get this piece working, too. I can't seem to get the Integrator plug to show up.

Yes, you have 16 channels running over FireWire, so that should be possible.

I'd run the Lavry that actually does conversion as clock master. Always better to let clocks run internally, especially A/D:s (since any jitter in A/D is permanent). During digital transfers it doesn't really matter, as long as the jitter isn't so bad you actually get clocking errors but that shouldn't be a problem.

Weird. For me it just shows up as a VST in Sequoia and seems to work well when I've tried it.

You can't. Only 8 channels. The only thing you can do is to store different Scenes but always with 8 channel limit per Scene.

Haven't been on Gear Slutz for several years but perhaps this will be useful to someone.

The x32 can handle 16 channels of simultaneous audio bi-directionally (16 in / 16 out).

This is made up of 8 channels of ADAT

.. AND ..

8 channels of ANY combination of SPDIF/COAX, TOS/COAX, and AES.

Therefore, if you are using 8 channels of AES you cannot use SPDIF. You can for example have ..

4 channels of AES
2 channels of TOS/COAX
2 channels of SPDIF/COAX
8 channels of ADAT

You don't need the Integrator plug-in (which has not been updated for years) with Logic, you can use Logic's utility I/O plug-in.

The x32 driver is TC Near which has just been updated (June 2013) and is fully compatible with Mountain Lion.

I use Digital Konnekt 32 as router for digital outs of my synths and EFX, not as FW interface (RME is my main workhorse for that).
I really love this box and although I don't know whether they improved on FW drivers for Windows, everything else works smooth and it is more than enough reason to have it.
Does it work glitch-free with Logic DAW now?
