Probably because of the maximum track count in Pro Tools.

@Bender412 hmm i have 64 audio tracks, 2 aux tracks and 1 master all in one session. So does it seem right that i can't commit everything i already having running in a session?

when i commit the tracks i delete the source track so nothing should be adding up there.

currently using the pro tools subscription from the avid website.

Because there will be a moment before deleting that both (all) tracks will exist.

Do it in two groups.

@pentagon even if i do it one by one that message still pops up at some point. are you saying split it into two different pro tools sessions?

You should be able to do 40, delete the old 40, and then do the rest. So at no point are you over 128 (you haven't mentioned sample rate so this may be a lower allowable count than I'm assuming)

@pentagon I tried splitting it up and i get the same results. Every time i commit it automatically deletes tracks (pictured below).

I'm at 1024 sample rate.

sample rate, not buffer.
Sample rate would be 44.1kHz, 48kHz, 88.2kHz, etc.

Can you do 10 selected?
(I know this is a silly question, but are you actually only selecting a limited about of tracks -- track names in white?)

@pentagon lol sample rate is 44.1

I can only do 10 right at the beginning. It seems to limit me at around 50 tracks.

Ill highlight the tracks, got to tracks on the top panel and then click commit.

So you can commit 50 and then it doesn't allow any more. But since you are deleting tracks as they commit, you are still at a total of 64 audio tracks? Do I have that right?

Can you post a screen shot of the tracklist (the left hand window above groups on either the mix or edit page)?
If after doing 50, you save, close, reopen the session, can you do more?

You can undo commit. I think that is what is screwing things up. Even though you are deleting the tracks after commit, ProTools is retaining them in case you want to undo. Closing/reopening wipes that from the buffer. Avid will have to change how undo deals with track count.

I think the thing to do is ask why you are committing.

If you commit because you are done working on the tracks and want to prevent changes being made, or you want to make stems, simply bounce the tracks to disk. Then you can import them as needed to a new mixing session or send them as stems.

If you are looking to just free up CPU, use freeze instead of commit.

Side note: 64 tracks is a whole lot of tracks not to mix down to more submaster auxs. If that's your tried and true style more power to you, but my 64 track session templates have 12 auxiliary busses that feed to my premaster and master fader. Just a thought.
