The ratios on the porty kit you mentioned (The Porty AS/RC) aren't fixed in the way that you think they are. You can divide the maximum energy sent to each head as follows: 1:1 (600/600), 2:1 (600:300), or 3:1 (900:300). Each head can then be independently adjusted over a 6 stop range in 1/10th. stop increments. It's extremely flexible.
The Pro Mini divides its capacitors similarly. There's an A side and a B side, with two head outlets per side.
