Default more than 32 voices with PT/24 ?

Hello,
I'm actually using a D24/2dsp farms system for live recording. Max 32 tracks in record. Everything is fine. But yesterday a client asked me for a 48 trks recording...
Witch solution seems the more reliable ?
1)Getting a second d24 card (d24-d24-farm1-farm2-scsi-ati)
2)Getting a mixcore (mixcore-d24-farm1-farm2-scsi-ati))
3)Getting a mixfarm (mixfarm-d24-farm1-farm2-scsi-ati)
Can you confirm that all these solutions give access to the 64 voices engine ?

For the interfaces maybe i'll leave the 888's at home ( 6 of them will be quite heavy...) and use 3 adatbridges with 3 ad16 Apogee.

Any comments about such a kit will be usefull.

thank's

Phil

ps sorry for my poor english writing

Adding a Mix Farm will let you have 64 voices.

You will be able to use Y cables on your d24 card and the Mix Farm card, and 1 888 off each DSP card.. for a total of 48 I/O. The DSP farm cards can only run one 888.

thank you Rail for quick answering,

Do you think adding a mixfarm is the best solution ? (better than adding d24 or mixcore)

And what do you think about the PCI load with this kind of setting ?

48 I/O 48 trks recording. 9500 xlr8 G3/400 320Mo. The suggested cards.
Actually cool with 32 trks 44,1 24b. But I'm gonna have 1,5 more data in the bus; It's not a small amount...

cheers to all.
