No, I mean use the two mic pres on the front of the 410 and then two
of the mic pres on the 002 to feed the two 1/4" inputs on the back of
the 410.  Or use the 4 pres on the 002 and then route each to a
separate out and then into the 4 inputs of the 410.  Or get a Mackie
or similar mixer with 4 busses or direct outs etc.

But the chances of that hardware working in Max are very near 100%
while the chances of the same gear working with Pd is not nearly as
great (more like 0% for the 002).  In the past I have use the .pat
file format to move patches between Max and Pd.  You have to change
all of the spigot, moses, osc~, etc objects and most everything has a
direct equivalent.

The other options are to procure other audio interfaces and/or a PC
running Windows or Linux.

Good luck.
