It should work just fine. Are you sure it's not just a problem of volume? Two
synths make more noise than one, eventually they will saturate the output.

Seven grayed out ams synths seem a bit exessive. However the last stable MusE
does gray out all but one if they have identical names. The latest prerelease
tries to work around this.
Best is if ams supports changing it's alsa name. Then you can name the
different instances with unique names.
