Allow Multiple Logic devices to be used in the Logic software at the same time

It would be nice if the Logic software could support two (or more) logic devices at the same time. That way customers who have the original all digital version can purchase a newer unit and simply add it to what they already have. It could allow for system expansion (More channels) to be done gradually making it more affordable to some. It may help people decide to make a second purchase if they knew their older device can still be used. Also, my thought would be that two 8 Channel devices would allow faster speeds than one 16 channel since there would be two processors and two USB ports.

    Another vote for this feature, but I also understand that accurate synchronisation could be a problem. Perhaps you need to have a common clock channel across each device so it can be post-capture synchronised?

    Honestly, this should be renamed to "next logic pro should have 32 channels".
    That's gonna be way simpler, cheaper to do than synchronizing two LP 16.

    USB bus is a shared bus if on the same controller, multiple devices on the same bus would just cause contention. If you have multiple physical USB controllers in your computer it would be more useful.

    Clock synchronization may be difficult, but it would be useful.

    I need this capability as well. I need more than 16 bits for a project. Can we use 2 different PCs and have a single trace as the common trigger (say a chip select). Capture data on multiple PCs with multiple logics and then combine the data into one file?
