Lynx Aurora 8 AND Tascam FW-1884 use w/ Sonar 7 PE

I was told by Lynx customer support that I will not be able to concurrently use my Lynx Aurora 8 w/ LT-FW and my Tascam FW-1884 going into Sonar 7 PE.

What I wanted to do: Use Aurora 8 as A/D converter, use FW-1884 as output hooked up to my monitors and use its control surface features + the onboard 8 mic pres

Looks like I can't use both w/ ASIO drivers. But can I do this w/ a WDM driver and not lose sample rate/bit depth?

Anyone have experience doing something like this (called aggregate devices?)

I don't want to have to buy another DB breakout cable to run from the Lynx analog outs to my monitors if there is an easy way around this.

Thanks in advance for your help!

With WDM you should be able to use both devices - with ASIO you can not as you've already discovered

I use my FW1884 as a control surface only with my RME Multiface providing the I/O

Wanted to do the same as you and use the ADAT out of my Tascam but I haven not had much luck with RME's WDM drivers..

Not sure how Lynx's WDM drivers are? Make sure the Lynx is your Master Clock - The Tascam sometimes "balks" at this ...

Not sure I understand why you would want to monitor thru Tascam's DA instead of the Aurora?
