I am currently in the design phase of a project and I had a quick question regarding multiple LPC17 cores: Essentially, I'm interested in creating a daisy chain between several MF_NG units so they act as one system. I'm just not sure how to go about creating the network between them. Can I use two MF_NG unit's on ONE LPC17 since there are four available midi ports and only two are needed for each MF_NG? Or, must I connect the LPC17's to each other via those MIDI channels (instead of J11 like the older cores..see below)?
I understand how the connection between MF_NG and LPC17 is made in a single unit but not if I have multiple units. I'd like to be able to have a 24 track console and be able to switch channels (thus extending the console to however many tracks the DAW session has), as well as install an LCD with track names to facilitate the workflow.
If there's some reading here that I'm missing please direct me to it. Originally I figured it would be possible to connect the LPC17's the same way the older core's had been connected (via J11.. http://www.ucapps.de/midibox_link.html) but I wasn't sure whether this applies to the LPC17 cores as well since the page was last updated in 2010.
EDIT: If this is the wrong forum for this topic, please tell me! I am very new to all this.
