Different audio interfaces for in and out
Hi! Can I set 2 different audio interfaces in Maschine? One for audio outputs (i.e. my main audio interface that goes to main speaker system) and another for the audio inputs (i.e. Maschine, to take advantage of its 2 inputs). Thanks!
On Windows or Mac?
On Mac you can use Aggregate Device (I'm not a Mac user so I don't know the details)
On Windows you can use Asio4All which lets you choose multiple audio interfaces.0
I would not recommend using ASIO4ALL - despite the name, it's not an ASIO driver. It just piggy backs onto the standard Windows WDM driver (not high performance).
Many years ago, some pro audio apps would only output sound to an ASIO interface, so if you only had a normal consumer audio interface, you wouldn't be able to get audio from that software.
ASIO4ALL was intended to "fool" the software app into thinking you had an ASIO interface when you didn't.
Those times have long passed (software is no longer "ASIO only"), so ASIO4ALL really isn't necessary any more - especially if you actually do have ASIO compatible hardware.2
I only mentioned ASIO4ALL because the OP wants to use multiple audio interfaces. This cannot be done using dedicated ASIO drivers.
Anoter solution to use multiple audio interfaces is something like VoiceMeeter Banana.0

Without knowing which two audio interfaces he's using, it's a bit early to say it can't be done.
Anyway, seems he's using Mac so it's irrelevant. :-)0

As a short answer, Maschine does not have such an option, so it's a "No".
Creating Aggregate Device is easy and should solve your problem, the tools to do it come with MacOS so it's free, it allows you to basically merge multiple audio interfaces.1
