It's annoying if hardware gets swapped around. Or at least allow the AX32 to "emulate" the MTRX as an option. I know that before the MTRX option was available in Pro Tools the HD MADI emulation for the port had considerably less delay than the HD I/O emulation. (Also made more sense in the I/O setup window since both the HD MADI and MTRX present as 64 input/output.)
I completely agree.
Also there's a weird sample offset between ch1-8 and 9-16 per 16 channels in the HD I/O emulation of the AX32. Probably because in the original HD I/O had ch9-16 as a sub connection.
