The 2 slot chassis is available in two models, one with an on-board SCSI controller or one without, your choice. The 2 Slot CardBus Expansion System is portable, compact and weighs 5.3 pounds.
The following is Digidesign test results; your results may vary:
Digi 001 running Pro Tools LE 5.1 software supports up to 24 tracks of record and playback. Track count is based on tests using 24-bit/48kHz audio with 300ms edits across all tracks.
Pro Tools|24 MIX system running Pro Tools 5.1 software supports up to 30 tracks of record and playback. Track count is based on tests using 24-bit/48kHz audio with 300ms edits across all tracks. Track count will increase as bit/sample rates and edit density are decreased.
All the testing done to achieve maximum track count with the MAGMA 2 Slot CardBus chassis were performed with the ATTO ExpressPCI UL2S SCSI HBA installed. It is therefore recommended that this SCSI card and two Digidesign Approved SCSI hard drives be used to achieve maximum disk performance.
