Multiple USB audio inputs in Elements 11 (MacBook M1)

I’m currently running all my outboard kit with 1/4 inch jacks through a 20 channel mixer (Yamaha MG20XU), and recording the output via USB with the mixer’s ASIO driver. Most of my kit can also output multiple USB audio channels (eg Jupiter X has 5, TR-8S has 12) but I can only select one driver at a time (even though Cubase is sending/receiving USB midi for all devices simultaneously through a 10-port hub).

Is there a way of recording/monitoring all my USB channels at the same time, either with a software or hardware solution?

Thanks for any suggestions.

I think the Mac core audio has an aggregate setting which will allow this but I hear it can increase latency. The problem using different interfaces at the same time is sync, that is why Cubase itself does not support it.

Thanks, that makes sense.


Yes the Aggregate Device is the way. But as mentioned, the devices are not perfectly in sync by the Aggregate Device.
