a friend of mine successfully used exactly the same setup on mac osx.
she also used 12 mic inputs simultaneously in pd, which worked well over

can you elaborate that a bit? i am not too used to windows anymore, but
iirc, using all mme devices sequentially, that are actually driven from
the same card and from the same clock, is supposed to work well.
you might already have tried that: what about accessing just _ALL_
inputs of the card? i don't know, where your octamic is connected to,
adat1 or adat2. if it is on adat2, -audioindev 4 -inchannels 12 wouldn't
work, since this would access actually the analog inputs and some adat1
-audioindev 1 -inchannels 28
then the [adc~] numbers in pd are not continous, but this wouldn't cause
any harm, would it?
