Stacking interfaces in Windows.

Stacking interfaces in Windows.

I'm currently using an RME UFX in Windows 7. I'm just about maxed in the ins and outs, both analog and digital. All that I have left is 2x2 AES and 2 stereo headphone outs. Really need a total of 34-48 outs but I'm alright on inputs. Is it possible to stack devices in windows?

I really don't want to switch card, if I could just double up my RME that would be cool.

You can do so using the Asio4all driver, but it's really not cool if you're rocking a decent / hi-end converter like your RME. I'd advise you to either find an RME product that suits your needs or to switch interface alltogether. With the network audio system currently available it's become real easy to design a system to fulfill your needs exactly. Focusrite Rednet is great if you're going Dante, Merging technologies make wonderful Ravenna products and MOTU is doing a great (and very affordable!) job with their AVB interfaces. Merging has more or less fixed format systems, but with Rednet or MOTU you are very flexible in your I/O choices. You could have 8 mic pre's, 16 line inputs, 64 line outputs, 128ch of Madi I/O, 32ch of AES I/O and a 64ch Protools bridge all in a rack of Rednet, simultaniously available to any device you connect to the network. (let alone the possibilities that Dante Via has opened up)
Waves also has a network audio system, but I believe it's quite expensive and might not work with all software.
