The answer will be zero. Cant be done from two SL24. It is possible with two SL16 though.

Link Multiple StudioLive's
Sometimes 24 input channels are not enough. No problem! You can use the StudioLive 24.4.2's second FireWire port to link two StudioLive 24.4.2 mixers for 48 channels of recording or to combine up to 4 StudioLive mixers for 96 channels in live performance, with sample-accurate synchronization between units. Now, you will never have to worry that your needs will outgrow your StudioLive's mixing capacity; when you need more channels, just plug in a second StudioLive 24.4.2, turn on its link ID, and your master StudioLive will detect it and merge the buses to the master unit. You don't even need a computer to cascade multiple units--simply connect them with a FireWire cable--done! You also can daisy-chain one or more FireStudio-series interfaces (such as the FireStudio Tube and FireStudio Project) with a StudioLive to provide additional inputs for recording.

From everything I've read.. recording 2 linked Sl24's is impossible. Too much info for firewire to deal with.

That's not really true.... companies say so but.... why can i with an interface over FW400 also record 26 channels of 96kHz 24 bit for instance... much more bandwith than for example 44.1kHz 24 bit...

In theory it is possible to feet 277 (!!) channels of 48kHz 24 bit audio over a Firewire IEEE1394 S400...

I've tried it and it cannot be done.

You can link two of them together but you cannot record from them in that configuration.

Sorry.

I don't think it's likely that ZZounds would just made this stuff up; it's generally a copy/paste affair. Maybe we can take this as foreshadowing of things to come from a firmware update? If I'm reading right, Universal Control supports 52 inputs. Just stirrin' the pot. . .

It would be awesome if that were the case.

Anybody tried pinning the ZZounds folks down on where they got their data?

UC may suport that amount but the SL 24 actually has more recording inputs than 24 when you add up the FX, Aux's Subs etc ...

I would say by the time you combined 2x SL24's you would have well over 60-70

isnt 1xSL16 counted as 32 possible inputs on its own ?

I dunno but I think 2 16's DO 32. I just saw a new Argosy <----spelling? case that was made for 2 24's so I am confused! However, I can't imagine unless you were doing an orchestra ever needing 48 inputs at a time. Even with a huge live band that's a bunch of tracks. But I guess there would be times if you had a live rig you would get the request.

That's true that there would be more than 52 possible inputs on the SL24, but the way the SL16's are setup, you get 32 channels when you daisy chain two together. So, on the SL24, it would makes sense to be able to record your 48 inputs, and maybe the stereo bus.

Maybe zz sound was not refuting to recording with Capture. Sonar would support that, Protools as well. And while I'm not as familiar With studio 1, id bet it will support it. I've mixed multiple interfaces of the same type befor with sonar, no problem. Anybody want to lend me 2 24.4.2's so I can try it?

the 52 I/O is based on the limitations of the DICE II firewire chipset in the device. Iused to have the specs on it but I can't find them anymore. But trust the old heads. It's 52/52 and no more room.

To add to what Mono is saying, in a recent Presonus video on Daisy Chaining SL16s, Justin talks about the 52in/52out.
