16 channels of 2882 into Logic 9 via Aggregate mode

I've read over the details of setting up 16 analog channels in Logic 9 so that I can monitor all 16 without the limitations of ADAT /AES & submixing. I'm hoping to record @ 24bit / 96k & create a stereo 24bit/96k mix at the same time.

So a few questions.

Best to capture the stereo 24bit/96k mix in the MIO RECORD PANEL?

I would also like to record MCU fader automation in Logic so that the live mix can be tweaked later on & recalled.

So with all that said, I would like to back up the raw tracks & unless there is a reason not too, I'd record all 16 analog MIO 2882 inputs @ 24/96k in the REC PANEL & then also in Logic. Too much? If so, can I track the raw audio files in the REC PANEL but capture midi fader automation in Logic & then merge the two in Logic easily? I made an attempt & even with only 8 16bit/44.1k files, importing them took forever. I'm afraid 16 x 24bit/96k files that are more than a hour long each will take the next 2 weeks which I don't have.

So it would appear that the simplest & cleanest approach would be to capture all 16 @ 24bit/96k & midi fader automation in Logic & NOT capture a dry signal in the MIO Record panel but this leaves me no backup options. Does it hurt anything to record to a separate HD via the REC PANEL too?

I'll also be recording a analog mix to a Tascam SSCDR1 via Compact Flash & also another 2 track recorder. Both at 16/44.1.

So any thoughts from those of you who do this sort of thing are greatly appreciated. I have about a week before I have to make up my mind & actually commit.

Thanks in advance,

I would record the RP tracks to a different drive, possibly on a different bus. Other than that, there shouldn't be a problem recording in Logic and the Record Panel at the same time.
