We worked out if we send out 10 stems from Pro Tools into the Akai we can then bounce down to track 11 & 12 for the final stereo mix. I's actually a 14 track. 12 tracks plus 1 for midi and one for time code.

I only had it for a bit before I traded it in to help get an S-1000.
I've got a 1214 sitting in closet waiting for restoration. It has the common problem where the back-up battery leaked and took out some track on the board.
I hope I can get round to it it next year.

Correction: it's a 1212 , not a 1214 .
