Default Audio Interface I/O - Dolby Atmos Production Suite

Hello everyone, first of all im a newbie in dolby atmos and here as well. So please pardon my doubt Iam a sound designer / editor working for various commercials actually. Currently i have a basic 7.1 setup for sound designing, editing and premixing my works.

My current 7.1 setup includes :
Pro tools ultimate.
7 x Jbl 308p powered studio monitors.
1 x Jbl lsr 310 subwoofer.
Focusrite scarlett 18i20 3rd gen audio interface.

Now im planning to upgrade this setup to dolby atmos 7.1.4 configuration using dolby atmos production suite. Adding 4 more jbl 308p for overheads also.
So my doubt is; for 7.1.4 setup i need 4 more individual analog outputs (for overhead speakers) from my interface right ?
But my current interface scarlett 18i20 only have 8 individual analog line outputs.
So im planning to connect a new scarlett octopre interface or behringer ADA8200 (or any interface with ADAT i/o and 4 or more line outputs) with my 18i20 via ADAT. So that i will get 8 more individual line outputs from the newly connected interface; and a total of 16 individual line outputs from both these interfaces right ?
So can i use any 4 line outputs from my ADAT extended interface for my overhead speakers ?
I mean first 8 outputs from scarlett 18i20 for L,R,C,LFE,Lss,Rss,Lrs,Rrs and 4 more individual analog outputs from ADAT extended interface for Ltf,Rtf,Ltr,Rtr (overhead speakers).

Will this technique works well for a 7.1.4 setup ? and can i route audio (both bed and objects) properly from protools and dolby production suite to these outputs ?
Please provide your valueble suggestions guys...
I dont have enough budget to go with avid interfaces or something like that thats why im planning to do this setup...

Hi,

Really interested.
Trying something similar out of my home studio/office/prison (thanks Covid!).
I have a mix and match 5.1 set of Genelec (8040 and 8030) and will try to add two more rear channels and 4 top.
Still using a venerable 002r with ProTools Ultimate 2019.10, but planning on jumping on a 18i20 as well.
I've tried to add a Behringer (please don't shoot ) ADA8000 with no success due to clocking issues through ADAT ports (no word clock In/Out on the 002r).

Routing doesn't seem an issue for 7.1.4.... 7.1 via analog outs on the interface and .4 via whatever will provide a solid ADAT connection.

Hi Nived, did this solution worked out for you?
