I was hoping I could save some money on the new interface by combining the Delta 66 I/Os with the new interface's. I might, for example, have "mission-critical" tracks like vocals and acoustic guitars go through the new interface for higher quality sound, and if I run out of hardware inputs there have other things like distorted guitars go through the Delta 66. I'd be happy with that trade off of $$ and sound quality.
Does anyone see a connection problem with the following?
1) Cubase pointed to the new interface for signals coming in.
2) Use the new, "better" interface for all that I can, and certainly for the more mission-critical tracks like vocals, acoustic guitars, etc.
3) If I need more hardware inputs than the new interface offers, plug into the Omni I/O, sub-mix some tracks down, and send them out a single hardware output from the Omni I/O to a single hardware input on the new interface. Cubase would not care that it came from another "sound card" ... it would see it as just another input from the new interface (??).
Thanks for any advice on this!
