Default Zoom H6 Multitrack Interface w/ Pro Tools 12

Greetings. I'm using a Zoom H6 as an audio interface for Pro Tools 12, until I can afford an upgrade. It connects fine using the onboard "stereo mix," setting. However, it seems to not work if I set it as a "multitrack interface." I'm hoping to have the ability to record discrete channels into Protools, but it seems the only way to input from the Zoom is by the zoom outputting a stereo mix of the mics I have plugged into the Zoom. Despite setting channel 1 and 2 to different tracks, each track is inputing a mix of both channels. Is there a way to keep the channels separate? Am I missing something?

Thanks!

You have to install the Multi-track driver if you are on Windows.

There are two drivers. One is for 2in/2out the Multi-Track driver is for 6in/2out.

Download the driver here for Windows.

On the Zoom H6, you need to choose Multi-track when you are setting it as an audio interface if you want discrete audio channels.

Thanks. I'm running Pro Tools 12.7 on Mac (Sierra). When selecting Multitrack Interface on the H6, the inputs aren't working.

Hmm... I'm on Windows and my Zoom H6 works as it should with Pro Tools.

Did you try defaulting the IO in Pro Tools?
