Hi all

I'm currently working on Pro Tools 11 HD (Mac) with an MBOX Pro, with the most recent audio drivers installed.

However I cannot create any new 5.1 tracks / buses etc in the i/o set up, and if I import any pre existing templates or i/o set ups with 5.1 channel paths, they all come up as inactive.

Attached is a screenshot of my current i/o set up, which doesn't include the possibility of creating new 5.1 paths.

I don't currently have the required speakers for a 5.1 set up, but I want to ensure I have the means to make 5.1 mixes before purchasing all the extra equipment.

Any advice, information, guidance, anecdotes, anything, would be much appreciated!

Kind regards,
