24 Channel 12 buss SC 500

will this work, I have a spare frame that I was thinking of loading 24 single 500/600 channels, a master and 12 of the 500 buss channels. took me a while to think of how to write this ...if I make a ribbon cable that links the 1st 8 channels to the 1st set of 4 buss channels , bypassing the next 16 channels , then a ribbon the links the next 8(9-16) the next set of 4 busses. and repeat for the next set of 8 and 4 busses.....should be do able Right?
I understand that I would need to hook all 24 to the master section ...I'm not concerned with losing the ability to "buss multiple channels" IE 1-4 and then 9-14 on the same buss, I'm looking to have a greater control over send volume to a 24 track recorder...

You must ensure that you have only one mix amp per bus. Follow this rule when making your ribbon cables and you plan should work.
