Hi I'm trying to work out how to use a AR12 studio live with protools 10. In my I/O menu it only shows 2 available channels in both input and output sections where i thought you could use all channels for simultaneous recording. Or are there only the first 2 available for recording at once. For example if I wanted to record a drum kit with 5 mics at once in protools 10 how do I get the other channels to work please?

Yes.  You can record from all inputs at the same time to individual tracks to any DAW.

Ensure that you are setting up Pro Tools correctly.  You may need to contact Avid for further assistance.

This Sound on Sound article is fairly comprehensive as well.

You should also ensure that you have the AR12 properly installed and updated with Universal Control.

You can also test your AR12 using Studio One 2 Artist to ensure that your AR12 is installed and working properly.
