Warning:go back to 8.01
Today while I was tracking I was hit with the White Noise blast that seems to be so rampant here. I experienced it one time and raising the buffer from 64 to 128 seemed to solve it. At least for a few weeks. I thought it was buffer related.
Problem with it happening today is that it blasted the drummers earphones:mad:
How did this slip past AVID? Why is it in 8.03? Pro Tools is a recording platform, and with 8.03 it is completely useless unless you want to deafen people.

I am usually politically correct and most of the time if I have a negative remark I do so with humor. Today, I am embarrassed to be using Pro Tools.

You doing this on WIn 7 64-bit? It IS a "public BETA" version. As in "Take your chances.."
I'm using 8.0.3 on my 002/XP 32-bit system without a hitch.

Hmm, so was I and then swishhhhwooooswishhh. It will happen and when it does, its going to be bigger then ever. I rolled back to 8.0.1, I still get the sporadic white noise but not nearly as bad. I never had the noise in 8.0.1 until I upgraded to 8.0.3 and back. I hate this crap, I'm looking at cubase 5.0 looks awesome with plenty of toys. Lets see.

What interfaces we talking about here?

Re: Warning:go back to 8.01
Windows XP SP3
Pro Tools 8.03
Digi 002R
i7 920
3 Gigs of ram.

A complete joke. FWIW, 8.01 never had this problem.

Re: Warning:go back to 8.01
I will triple check my ram timings again (although they "should" be correct)
I will also post a Sandra report later tonight.

kris75, we'll check out your RAM timings and take it from there. Your rig needs to be up and running by 7pm tomorrow night. ;) :D

Hi Shane>:D

I've been warning people for days not to use this in their studio rigs yet. I have seen this behavior and more. I have a full workig W7/64 bit system and would not consider using it with a client. It's just not ready. Nor is it advertised as ready for any W7 system other than for beta testing.

And yes, I pulled this off the XP rig after the first few hours. But that was for the distortion issue.

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 10:51 PM.
