Maybe I gave a hint?

Higher sampling rates only benefit you if your mix needs higher frequencies, but even current 192kHz boxes usually cap it at 20kHz going in which makes recording at higher rates unnecessary. Sweet spot would be 64kHz which would allow filters to set the non-linear action to frequencies human ear cannot hear but we don't have that so if your converters are not "perfect" you are very safe at 96k, will not need 192k and definetely don't need to request 384k

Mixing at 96k have some benefits compared to 48k because not all plugins are made equal, but that is another story.

Anyway, if your final mix don't have frequencies over 20kHz you have absolutely zero reason for recording over 48k

(and what is the frequency response of a MP3?)

In some ways, you already got your wish. The MTRX is made my Digital Audio Denmark. Not Avid.

Although I completely disagree with the statement that they don’t have good hardware engineers and designers. The S6 and other control surface hardware is brilliant.

The S6 is not an audio device but a device that is loaded with many encoders/servos to record/play physical moves....nice expensive toy.

To keep this in perspective, "corp" is a Pro Tools TDM v8 user.
These threads are just trolling for him. (and not the first by a long shot)

Like cro-magnon man asking where his supersonic jet is.

Reliant Robin?

Is there a prize when we get this right? -- Maybe like a Pyramix system so we can understand the benefits of mixing in wonderful high bit rate DSD?
