Default Can Avid Carbon(PRE) be used together with HDX ?

Might be a strange question but this way you can have a much higher I/O count than HDX can support by it's own (1 card = 64 IO's)

Might be done with the new AUX I/O ?

I'm not talking about the Carbon PRE although that might be the same way to connect them

Imagen this : :
  • HDX fully connected with 64 IO's and 18x DSP
  • Carbon connected with max 25 Inputs AND 8 additional DSP (dsp's might not work but would be great if they did to add more power)
  • + some Carbon PRE's connected to the AVB bus (might be possible through AUX /IO) lets say 4 PRE's = 32 MIC inputs

This would make it a whopping I/0 count of 121 I/0's (for whoever needs this amount)
But it would certainly be interesting to add he 8 DSP's power of carbon

Could this be done ???

with kind regards
