Join David Franz for an in-depth discussion in this video Enhanced system capabilities, part of Pro Tools 10 New Features.
In Pro Tools 10, Avid has significantly increased the voiceable audio track count, boosting the total number in HD systems by a factor of three, up to a whopping 768 tracks. The maximum number of auxiliary input tracks has also increased to 512. Both of these track counts are available for Pro Tools users with the complete production toolkit as well. Check out the chart here for the totals on all the other systems and configurations.
Avid has also increased the amount of available automatic delay compensation in all Pro Tools 10 systems. We can check that here. If we go to Setup > Playback Engine, there is actually a new setting called Maximum. Check it out right there. When you choose the Maximum Delay Compensation setting here, you'll get over 16,000 samples in sessions that are 44.1 and 48 kilohertz sampling rates. In sessions that are 88.2 and 96 kilohertz, you'll get over 32,000 samples of delay compensation, as shown here, and you get over 65,000 samples of delay compensation in sessions that are 176.4 and 192 kilohertz.
Note that limitations in the TDM hardware don't allow for Pro Tools HD systems to have this maximum setting, which is rather unfortunate. Let's move on to the next feature. Avid has also opened up the Low Latency Monitoring option, which we can choose right here, to core audio and ASIO hardware audio interfaces that have built-in mixers. However, you can't use LLM with the Pro Tools aggregate I/O on a Mac. So there's a quick overview of the enhanced system capabilities with Pro Tools 10.
