So what does this bug tell us... AVID do this limitations on purpose....for Vanilla and Ultimate... It proves, that other Daws (Studio One,Logic,Nuendo) can have 999+Tracks and unlimited I/O... It proves, that Avid makes the limitations for a good reason...Everybody can think about it, why...

As everyone has alluded to, this is common knowledge. I'm getting flashbacks to when PT was unleashed for use with any audio devices, not just LE/M-Powered/HD hardware. Same thing then "WOW THIS PROVES THEY WERE SANDBAGGING THIS WHOLE TIMEEMEMEME." Oh rly.

Artificial limits are Avid's modus operandi. Ultimate allows for more tracks than Vanilla on the same system. The only difference is the license on the iLok.

Playback yes, but even Ultimate needs HDN/HDX hardware for +32 i/o

No, It doesn´t need. It can have as many i/o as you want it to programme it to have. it´s a marketing limitation only.

Yes it does fall into same CoreAudio 32 i/o limitation with Standard software. Only way to get more i/o is using HDN/HDX hardware.

Yes indeed the DUC is almost as entertaining as the internet at large

What never ceases to amaze me is those who (may) otherwise be at least somewhat logical people, can jump all over such convoluted "conspiracy" notions apparently with out ever bothering to think them through to a logical conclusion

Like what would be actual point of intentionally reducing the "TRACK" count of vanilla by 1/2, and hiding it ????
In terms of writing the code, it would not reflect a reduction in cost to AVID, in fact intentionally RE -writing that portion of the code to reflect a reduce track count, and then re-re writing to put it back up, would increase costs for labor for the time an spent to re-write and then re -re write and make absolutely no business sense

And if the intention is to dump vanilla altogether (as per the, convoluted "AVID wants to dump vanilla users " theory" suggests BTW unsupported by any facts at all ), it makes no sense to "surreptitiously" 1/2 the track count, then backpedal and put it back. When simply announcing a reduction in track count for Vanilla from the start , would be much much more efficient in business terms, for intentionally causing Vanilla users to jump ship.

And given the fact that almost always, the simplest explanation is usually the correct one,,, like oh say for example ( human error resulting in an unintentional FU) ,, embarrassing ? YES,,,, sinister? pretty unlikely .
