Mac OS X aggregate device experience?


    Jan 29 2007 | 12:29 am
    Hiya,
    I searched the Forum for info about using aggregate audio devices with MaxMSP, but couldn't find anything useful.
    I'm just wondering if anyone has tried this and how it worked before I go spend money on interfaces...
    Thanks, Ean

      I've used it with success in MaxMSP - using an Emagic USB 1.1 Soundcard (2 ins, 6 outs) and a USB>XLR adapter for my mic. Using the aggregate audio device editor in Audio/Midi setup in OS 10.4, I now had a 3 in, 6 out soundcard. It even let me "clock down" the USB>XLR adapter to 44.1k (it's 48 K by default.) Pretty freaking cool...

      Hi Ean
      I've hooked two Motu's 828 mkII. And it worked like a charm. It gave me 44 outputs. check the link: http://blog.emusician.com/the_bushttps://cycling74.com/forums/aggregate-devices/
      sound on sound has a article too about aggregated devices: http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/feb06/articles/pcmusician.htm
      Have fun spending your money

      good experiences here, too.
      RME HDSP96/52 + DIGI96/8-PAD
      Works like a charm.
      The only time I found it a bit dodgy was when I built an aggregate device with both cards and Soundflower (16 ch). It was easy to get into pops and crackles on the Soundflower channels -- but that could be my machine. Instead, I routed one lightpipe from the 96/52 back into the 96/8, and it works great.

      Cool. Thanks everyone.
      And the best part, it's not my money!
