  I'm almost positive I heard Jobs say 64 tracks, but of course that is 
playback/editing/mixing. I placed my order straight away, as I'm a trad 
Irish musician and only play one thing at a time so even one 
simultaneous input is fine for me. However, it would be nice to have it 
support as many simultaneous inputs as you had hardware channels and 
CPU horsepower for.

  I see in the screenshots that there is one record button in the lower 
area, but I can't see clearly enough to tell if you mark individual 
tracks as "record" tracks, etc, as you would do in, say, ProTools.

  Can't wait for it to arrive and start playing with it.
