Wanna track 12- What to get?!!

hey peeps, new to Gearslutz here, thanks in advance.

So I'm currently using a Tascam US-800 and also have an US-600, both of which are for some reason giving me identical issues where after a matter of 2-4 minutes (depending on whether I'm working at the same time) during playback it starts to click and haste-fully start entirely sound like it's clipping like crazy.
Causing me to be limited to recording only a couple bars at a time (which has been fine recording a rapper but I am ready to start working with bands too... SO)

I want at least 12 channels in my DAW for multitracking. Why? drums. and possibly recording a live performance.

And is it safe to use 2 soundcards at the same time? even if they are identical models?

What should I get? I've been looking into this for a while but not sure.

I've looked at the PreSonus StudioLive, RME Fireface UC along with a PreSonus Digimax8, and so on.

Please help

Studio live is a good choice... 16 pres and conversion, both of which sound great. I have one in my studio and am selling my Steinberg interface.

Sweet, it's #1 on the list for now just getting more suggestions.

What system and DAW do you use it with?

Do you like using FireWire? (it's kinda hard as **** i'm learning to multitrack more than 8 channels with anything USB)

What if i used this interface: PreSonus AudioBox 1818VSL |

And the PreSonus Digimax8? Wouldn't I get 16 channels in FL? I have no idea how the ADAT works.
Will the ADAT connection read 8 separate channels or will all 8 be one channel?...
I want to multitrack in my DAW.
