Can I use two Fast Track Pro to record 4 tracks?

Can I use two Fast Track Pro to record 4 tracks?

Maybe if I connect them with the spdif. One is connectec to pc (with two tracks) and the other one (with two more mics or instruments), using the spdif output of the last into the spdif input of the first interface.

Is it worth it? Or do you recommend me to sell my Fast Track and get a Fast Track Ultra 8x8?

    Yes, the FTP can run in standalone mode (not connected to USB), so you should be able to connect one FTP to your computer, and the second FTP to the first using SPDIF:

    The Fast Track Pro can act as a stand-alone mic preamp with 24-bit/44.1kHz A/D converters. Inputs 1 and 2 are sent to the S/PDIF Out
    and analog Outputs 3 and 4 post inserts.

    Both the FTP and FTU are discontinued products, if you're thinking of buying anything, I'd look for something that is newer and has all the inputs you'll require.
