Actualsizeaudio - this means that you could have the line inputs match up with the line outputs if you wish to. When using Thunderbolt mode, you can in fact already do the opposite by using Focusrite Control to effectively re-arrange the output ordering to match the input ordering.

MGA - I'm not sure whether or not this might be possible in future but I'll certainly pass your request on to the team for consideration.

OK, well that is certainly a relief. I'm seriously considering these boxes, and that would have been a deal breaker. Will this be an option when using the digilink cabling? I'm not sure I'm going that route over thunderbolt, but it is an option, unless the input delay compensation can't be sorted, in which case it seems like Thunderbolt might just be as good if you can stay under the 32ins and outs limitations.

Thanks for the response Jack!
