Default Re: HDX card still only shows 256 tracks

Nope. Already stated by Avid you'll only get 1024 voices (HDX4) max with an HDX6 system (interview with Avid VP.) No matter what (the upcoming voice increase/card won't change this.) Extra 2 cards become processing only and I/O
You will be able to use all the cards for I/O though -- 384 I/O max now.
