Two fireface 800 at the same time?

The question speacks for itself...I have a fireface 800 but need more in and outs to run analog harware in pro tools... if I have another one can I run the two fireface at the same time ? And have in pro tools 56 in and 56 outs instead of 28 in and 28 outs?

I haven't tried it at OS X, but you can run multiple Fireface interfaces at Windows. Each has its TotalMix settings, but all I/Os appears sequentially at single ASIO driver.

p. 25

With ProTools, you're limited to 32 I/Os with non-AVID hardware, there's no way around that.. in PT you can use just first 32 channels from ASIO/CoreAudio driver.
So either change DAW or get HD Native interface, which has 64 I/Os..
