Default Multiple interfaces

I've got a Fast Track Pro. I've got some VIs that don't like the M-Audio ASIO driver. Yes, I use a couple different DAWs. I tried ASIO4ALL, and the programs like it but the Fast Track Pro doesn't seem to like it. I need an ASIO driver so that I don't have a ton of latency with the VIs.

I'm thinking of picking up a Focusrite Saffire 6 and using that for the other DAW, and keeping the FTP for Pro Tools.

Would Pro Tools freak out if it saw two USB interfaces? Or would I have remove the Focusrite interface when I use Pro Tools? The other DAW will use either.

It's the VIs that are an issue.

It shouldn't be an issue. Pick to one you want to use and PT should default to it.

Agreed, but if you plan on using the Fast Track as the audio engine, I would uninstall ASIO4ALL and go with M-Audio drivers(ASIO4ALL was terrible on my laptop with the Fast Track Pro, but M-Audio drivers work fine. Pro Tools will(SHOULD) recognize any and all midi ports(as long as drivers are installed). I ran midi via my DIGI003, M-Audio Uno and MOTU FastLane USB all at the same time(Windows XP). Since going to Win7, the UNO would not cooperate(so its gone now)

As far as I'm aware, Pro Tools M-Powered only works with M-Audio devices. You'd need to be using the regular Pro Tools 9 in order to use any interface you wanted.
