Number of Physical Inputs

Hi all,

on the Cubase comparison page https://new.steinberg.net/cubase/compare-editions/ it says that there are, e.g., 16 physical inputs in Cubase AI 10.5. Does this mean that I can use 16 inputs AND 16 outputs or is this number the sum of in- and outputs?

In other words, can I record 16 tracks/instruments simultaneously while listening to two different mixes created in Cubase at the same time? Or is this only possible in Cubase Elements 10.5 (24 physical inputs & outputs).

Thanks for any help.

16 (Mono) Inputs and 16 (Mono) outputs, or 8 stereo, or mix of both up to 16 physical in- / outputs

Okay, thank you. So the and is important. This answers everything.
