Default number of tracks allowable wtih mbox and usb?

I searched the site, and didn't find a specific answer, so how many tracks can you play back with the Mbox and usb? I record only two tracks at a time, but will need to play back up to 10. The USB can handle two tracks going in obviously, but going out I plan on sending the master L/R to a spdif output. It still has to come back USB, so what's the limit on tracks with 24/44.1? My system is powerful enough to handle the tracks, but is USB?


thanks again..

Mbox will give you 2 outputs. Period.

No matter how many tracks you play back, the Mbox only has to output 2 tracks (stereo output), so you could play back as many tracks as your system is capable of. The Mbox and USB will not limit your playback tracks in any way.

The current "Voice limitation" in Pro-Tools Le is 32.

a stereo track voiced, counts for 2 voices.

you can Playback, (and hear) 32 tracks in PTLE.
