Pro Tools won't allow me to choose my interface in the playback engine dialog using on Windows (receiving message "AAE error 6001")

Applies to: Saffire (whole range), Scarlett (Whole range)

If you're receiving error message "AAE error 6001" in Pro Tools when trying to select your device as the playback engine, please close Pro Tools and navigate to Control Panel> Sound> Playback> Right-click your interface> Properties> Advanced> change the sample rate to match sample rate of session> click apply> click ok. Now re-open Pro Tools, it should run as expected.
