I am just getting started and I have PT 7.4 LE. When loaded up I have made a vocal track. I can add reverb but i cannot add Delay. An error comes up that the plug in can not not be made active because a DAE error was encountered. Looking up the 7400 error on google pro tolos etc. it also states that the plugin might not be installed. Ho can I find out what plugins are installed

I go to the chanell i want, go to the top where you would add te effect. Your choices are Multi chanel plug in, then you can choose, Dynamics, Reverb Delay, Modulation, etc. I picked reverb and I was successful in adding that. When I go to pick delay my options are extra Long Delay ll stereo, Long Delay ll stereo,medium, short and time adjuster. Picking any one of these I get the error ( the plug in could not be made active because a DAE error was encountered ( error 7400). This is what i am trying to do. simply add a delay to my vocals. So my question is. Does this delay come with the Basic 7.4 LE PT download? If it does then there is a problem. What do I do? If it does not where do I get it, how much, and what else does this software NOT COME WITH.

So far this software is Not User Friendly for a begigner. Also from what I am seeing on the community site is that there are allot of problems with pro tools no matter what version.

You also stated stock !!! That's my question. are there stack installed add ons for Delay comression etc. What does the 7.4 LE come with out of the BOX

04-08-2014, 12:20 PM
That is a stock plug-in.
Try reinstalling the app and then repair permissions if your on a mac.
But also post you system information as Craig the moderator asked.

You may also go to your account and see if your OS and the version of LE are compatible.
7.4.? OS 10.5.?

The ones you mention are stock

You can buy 3rd party delays form other companies
Sound Toys had had a free into offer for their Primal Delay, but that's over
Waves has H-Delay and Super Tap
Line 6's Echo Farm has some

But we still don't know what OS type and version you are on

Are you running PT7.4 CS10?

Don Parisi

I am running Pro tools LE 7.4 There is no CS10 What is that

May be this will elp.

When I boot up my Pro Tool 7.4 LE on my computer this is what happens.

I get a message that says

Warning" Loss of Plug-in Authorization Keys May Occur
This system contains 1 or more Drives Formatted with NTFS, which have volume names longer than 11 Characters. This combination is know to corrupt some Inter-Lock Plug-in Authorizations. If you know which drives are Authorized and they are no configured this way, or if you have no interlock protected plugins, then you may continue. In order to remedy this issue before corruption can occur click yes to quit pro tools and rename NTFS Volumes to names that are 11 Characters or less. Next, relaunch Pro tolls and this dialog should not appear again.

Now I do not know what this means so I hit No and go right into Pro tools. I am sure this is the problem. So,

1) What are volumes?
2) Where are they?
3) Is it safe to do this?

Please note.

My pro tools is loaded onto my C drive - NO External drive and as I stated in the begining of this, I am running windows Vista Home addition.

When I call Avid they said to run Updates and I should work on the Home Addition.

I have loaded the software on another computer and it works. I guess the Vista Home Premium will not work with 7.4 LE.

I have listed all information see above. Does anybody have a 7.4 LE with MBox 2 running on Vista Home Premium SP2. And if so. What did yoiu have to do to get it to work
