Eucon 20.5 Automation Lag
 
New Eucon 20.5 Dock and S1 have a showstopper for me.

there's a lag before it'll write fader automation.

Roll the transport and immediately grab the fader... it takes a beat to start writing.
If you write before transport rolls it will write static for a second, then start writing.

I measured it... on this particular session it's 12.5 frames (half a second) from where the transport rolls until you can actually write automation.

PT 2019.6

Multiple restarts of computer and Eucon provide no relief.

Hi, What surfaces do you have and how many tracks, VCA's etc do you have in the session ? What OS and computer version ?

S1/Dock (ipads, but haven's with or without)

tried each surface individually as well

OSX 10.12.6
PT 2019.6
Mac Pro (Late 2013)
64gb ram

Noticed it first in sessions with
about 300 tracks
9 vcas, but does it in all real world sessions. (tried about 15 different session built with 2 templates)

seems to be tied to the video engine(DNX pix)... if I turn it off it's a little bit better (still kinda odd...while you're hitting play... jump instead of smooth for the first 6-12 frame.) Video engine on, no automation moves for up to a second.

a fresh session with 200 mono audio tracks performed fine.

And to confirm this wasnt happening in a previous release of EUCON and if so what was that version ?

Correct. Only thing I changed was Eucon (and associated firmware updates) previous version was 20.3(whatever the latest was 3 days ago)

it's similar behavior to the bug on 20.3 where there would be a lag after changing a softkey... but that went away with a restart, and I cannot confirm if it is the EXACT same behavior.

For anyone that feels the need to roll back to 20.1 here's the ipa https://1drv.ms/u/s!AowqasI1coAD49BM...da4Tg?e=6kKham
This is unsupported though by Avid.

does NOT have this problem. Works pretty smoothly. Same sessions that had the issue on the other rig.
