Yes. Someone in IRC yesterday found that upto 4 delta 44's can be linked
in software (under windows XP only, using a kernel hack). It would be
interesting to see how this works. It will be using a hardware feature
specific to the Delta's, but might still be useful for 44 owners.

Also, though studio cards will run in sync if you link thier wordclocks,
the interaction with that and ALSA will not have been tested very
thouroughly, so I wouldn't rush out and buy more cards until I'd spoken to
someone with the same combination to find out if it worked OK.

I would guess that the cards wouldn't generally start thier buffer
transfers on the same sample, which might cause some odd problems.
