Default How many Controllers?

hi,
I looked up DUC and found several answers.
Please, can someone give a "yes /no" answer?
I know compatibility issues and EndofS letters from Avid.

A) Protools 10
* 1 Procontrol with 3 Fader packs - possible?
* 2 Control24 (Focusrite edition) - possible?
* 2 C24 (new) - possible?
* 1 Mackie Control Master and 2 Fader extensions (or just one extension or even more?)
* 1 Surround Panner and 1 Mackie Control Master (possible to add Fader extensions?)
* 1 Nyrinck V Control Pro and 1 Mackie Control Master (possible to add Fader extensions?)

To sum this up:
how many Ethernet controlers and/or how many Midi controles (HUI) in PT 10 at the same time?

B) PT 11:
Procontrol, Control24, is dead. i know.

How many Ethernet controlers and how many midi controles (HUI) in
PT 11 at the same time?

thanks!!!!
mubeau

1 Mackie Control and 1 Mackie Control Extender is absolutely possible. One of the rigs where I work is configured this way. It used to have a second Mackie Control Extender connected. It was removed for reasons unrelated to Pro Tools.

A while back (PT9?), I used to use a Control|24 and an 003 together. They would bank together, and played very nicely. 003 had to be the first (8) faders, though.

Never tried the other combos you're talking about.

Probably four, since this is the number of controllers that can be specified in Setup-->Peripherals-->MIDI Controllers

I'm using 4 McMix, 1 McControl, 1 V-Control, 1 Surround Panner, and 1 timecode display beautifully. Could probably throw in 2 additional HUI controllers but not sure how the timecode readout or metering would be affected.

Thanks,

I guess with Avid MCs and MIXes etc Eucon controllers you might not have problems adding whatever Protools allows.
I have an ICON, Dcommand (40 faders) in my studio which is perfect for me.
But they are no longer produced.

Control24 in Studio B has to be replaced now.
I have a Mackie control at home, so id only need to add a V Control (which is good) and some extra 2 fader packs (24 faders are Ok there)

SO how many MIDI / HUI Controllers / xtenders can be added?

this could be also interesting..

I have a Slate Raven, which uses 3 HUI slots, and an MC Control and an MC Mix on Eucon.
They all play nice together in PT11.
