I currently own 2 MH firewire interfaces: one ULN-2 and one 2882. I'm considering buying a 3rd (another 2882) in order to increase the number of I/O that I'll have available to me. I need more simultaneous inputs for tracking a full band in the studio.

From what I've read, PT10 supports up to 32 ch of IO with third-party interfaces. I've experimented with the 3-interface scenario by trying to create an aggregate device, which included the 2 MH boxes and an RME Fireface 800) within the Audio/Midi setup. This did not work. Pro Tools would not recognize the 3rd interface (the Fireface 800) even though I had included it in the aggregate device.
This makes me wonder:

1. Does pro tools 10 only recognize the first 32 core audio channels? (two MH boxes actually = 36 channels/streams of audio)
2. Is there a physical limit to the number of core audio devices that I can use with pro tools 10? OR Can I somehow force Pro Tools 10 to use, for example, 6 inputs via the ULN-2, 18 inputs from my 2882, and 8 inputs from a new 2882...

Can anyone confirm that such a setup will work and work reliably?

Thank you,
