NSB 16.8 stage box inputs not getting to Protools via Studio Live 64

Just purchased NBS 16.8 stage box. I have connected it to my Studio Live 64 via "network" and can hear audio input via my Studio Live 64.

However , the stage box inputs (channel 33 thru 48) do not record /route  to my ProTools 12.

The I/O in ProTools shows there are 64 in/out. but im only getting the 32 (Studio Live 64) in/out  . not the stage box inputs.

Best answer

Pro Tools has 32x32 I/O limit when not using their HD Hardware + Software versions.

PT will only accept signals from the first 32 inputs it sees from the driver. All channels beyond this will NOT produce any audio.

This is by Design from Avid and as such there is nothing I can do to help you further.

Note: Studio One does not have a I/O limit with it's Audio Devices.
