@MetricHalo: why no 16 or 32 IO interface boxes available?

Sorry to say but I dont get why you - MH - still have no interfaces with more than 8 IO that can be used at the same time?

In order to expand the number of IO substantially and stay on the magic 3D platform I would need to buy several LIO/ULN's for lots of $$$; this while there is an Orion 32, Lynx 16 and Presonus 4848 (48 channels!!) for a reasonable outlay.

So, are there boxes coming our way this year with lots more IO? Or can I forget it and need to really buy an interface from another manufacturer?

As you probably know, MH hardly ever discusses future plans. The last time they did, there was a 3 year long piss and moan about where the upgrade is. Good times. Of course, I'd love to see what, if anything (besides finalizing the 3D software and implementing Windows drivers), they have in the pipeline. Personally I'm hoping for edge cards with 4 channels of Analog I/O.

Magic 8 Ball™ Sez: Buy what you think serves your purpose now and make music, because I can pretty much guarantee you MH is going to do what they think is best for them and creating a whole line of products to fit every niche has never been it.

Can you believe that all fit on my Magic 8 Ball™?

Or they can just be professional about it by saying: "yes, we have an interface with more IO in the pipeline but our first priority is finalizing the 3D platform for all our existing interfaces".

i mean, its not a ridiculous question that I'm asking and they should care about their customer base.
And I'm not asking for a planning just for a general timeframe.

That said, they made a mistake announcing 3D years ago and not meeting their estimated/predicted timeframe.
Sure thing they are not eager to make that mistake again.

Here for the gear
 

More I/O?
Read the 3D implementation and study the edge card options.
