I don't have a 1010, but have read several threads about this in the 
past. I was interested in buying one until recently, when I got an RME 
card instead.

My understanding is that you *can* plug the 'wordclock out' from one 
card into the 'wordclock in' of the second card. One card should then 
use the clock from the other.

I understand that you then have to create a custom alsa configuration 
(using something like an asound.rc file?) so that ALSA treats the two 
cards like one, and JACK can then talk to both cards as one.

However, the previous threads which I can remember ended inconclusively 
- I seem to recall that someone said roughly what I had just said but 
then couldn't remember anyone who had done this successfully. Maybe an 
ALSA mailing list might be more helpful?
