Good morning everybody,
I do have a question about some multibox routing thingies.
I've created one listening environment out of 2 ULN 8's
So far I was only mixing in Logic and used my ULN's to do +DSP jobs via the I/O plugin from logic.
I realize this way the summing is done in Logic.
So now I want to take advantage of summing in.
This is what I did.

Working in Logix X with aggregate device to see all of my 40 inputs.
I also hooked the slavebox via AES to the master box to route the audio from the slave via digital 1/2 like in the multibox routing tutorial video.
I always thought it was one or the other, but I can't find my slave inputs if I lose the aggregate devise.
So far it is working, I can hear all of my audio inputs through the master. I've hooked the master buss to the monitor controller via " add to monitor controller "

But then I discovered a few things;
1) If I solo a channel from the master box, it is soloed but I still hear the slavebox.. I did overcome this by creating an in-between buss in the master and route al master channels to this buss. the output of the in-between buss is routed back to the master buss. In this way I can quickly mute the master channels when I want to hear the slave channels. And visa versa I can quickly mute the digital 1/2 buss to hear my master channels.

I recon somebody must be laughing now because this must be a stupid way of working, but I can't find another way.

However. this way of working is giving me another problem;

2) If I solo a slave channel, nothing happens, I keep hearing all my slave channels ?!

This is giving me headaches, I can't find out why.
Please can somebody give me a clear way of understanding and maybe a proper way to work with Logic and MIO.
I'm struggling for over a year now to do advanced things with my set up.

I watched all the tutorial vids a thousand times, read the manual over and over. It doesn't give me enough to become a MIO routing wizard
I did attache a screen shot of my MIO setup Blue is the master, green the slave
