Default MTRX 8-channel card not showing in Pro Tools

I just installed a 3rd MTRX 8-channel preamp card (in addition to the two 8-channel preamp cards already there), and it's showing up in the DADman software, but in ProTools it still reads as a MTRX 16x16, when it should be 24x16. Not seeing the extra 8 channels as available in I/O.
Any help appreciated.

Greetings.

I'm not sure what your particular system configuration is, however, I would recommend setting your Port Emulation to MTRX 32x32. If you are, for example, connected to a single HDX card you would configure as follows:

CONF tab in DADman: (Pro Tools HD / DigiLink)
PHD Mode: 2xPrimary
Port 1 Emulation: MTRX 32x32
Port 2 Emulation: MTRX 32x32

This would allow you to route in and out of the DADman patchbay to and from Pro Tools with 64 channels of DigiLink.

Pro Tools doesn't automagically know how many and what type of IO cards you have populated into your MTRX - only that there are X total DigiLink spigots coming in and out of the HDX or HDN engine cards.

Hope this helps.

best,


Jeff

Thanks Jeff. My setup is Pro Tools HD Native, and I'll never use more than 8 Dante channels, so would it be better as this?

Digilink mode: Pri/Exp
Port 1 emil. MTRX 32x32

If you don't have any other interfaces, you can set it to Pri/Pri and both ports to MTRX 32x32 –*then you have 64 I/O to play with.
