The later is working. And with clock-synced sound-cards, alsa_in and alsa_out 
don't need to resample at all...

The hardware is also only a backend (but with the "I am hardware" flag set).

FFADO supports device-aggregation since the Freebob times. Its harder to make 
it not to aggregate then it is to make it aggregate.

I did successfully run an presonus firepod, a focusrite pro24 and a 
development-board all clock-synced and aggregated into one large device. Of 
course, the  latencies of the various in- and outputs are not the same as each 
device and io-type has a different converter latency. But as that is constant, 
its not a problem.

Have fun,
