Tom Rice Latency toolbox LARGE MIDI setup

Hi, Wow that tutorial of Tom Rice (Logic 9 207:Logic's Latency toolbox) really opened my eyes and helped ALOT! Calibrating my midi synths on their own isn't a problem anymore .... BUT I have a question for Tom Rice or anyone who knows how to proceed. I'm talking about section 8 of the tutorial (vids 41,42,43). Tom uses 4 midi external midi instruments.He first delays them to one another so the instruments are in sync with each other.Later he tells us how to sync this lot to the Logic master click. I fully understand but before I will start to calibrate my MIDI setup I would like to be sure how to proceed as I have a big studio with alot of midi synths,midi efx,midi to dcb converters,midi to cv etcetc...All connected to 2 Motu's Midi expresses 128 My question : I have to calibrate more than 25 midi (modules/synths) and I only have 16 audio ins....As I understand the test Tom Rice did required to record the fast-attack sound on all modules at the same run so you can calculate latency between each other and latency against Logic. Is it ok if I do the test in groups? (Recording 16 midi instruments and calculate latency and after that the remaining midi synths) If I do it this way,how should I proceed in finding the correct ALL MIDI OUTPUT DELAY,as I have 2 midi-groups instead of 1 like in the video... Headache and sorry for the chaotic explanation but it's not an easy subject :-) Thumbs up for Tom Rice!
