Topic: Pro Tools input routing tricks for channels above 32?
What solutions have people found for getting specific channels above 32 to show up within the non-HD Pro Tools limit? I have a MADI FX and am trying to get together some presets for guest engineers. The output side is easy because you have the Playback mix to Hardware Outputs in TotalMix. On the input side, the best I can come up with is using Rogue Amoeba Loopback to create a virtual device that routes the required Hardware Input channels to the first 32 channels of the PT Aggregate I/O, then I just make the MADI FX the Aggregate’s output. Trying to avoid unnecessary hops, as Loopback virtual drivers have some latency.
For reference, my typical rig is two Orion 32s at 96kHz on the two MADI FX optical lines, plus the AES input, on a 2012 Mac Mini running Sierra. Mojave soon but not yet.
