New Mac Pro (7.1)
 
Hi, I will receive my new Mac in February

I have an HDX Card, and 2 Avid Interfaces

Does anyone already have received his Mac Pro and made full test of Pro Tools and if the HDX Card works with it

Thanks!!!!

According to Apple:

ďAvid can enable support for up to six HDX cards, resulting in more IO, increased voice count and two times the real-time DSP processing than any other system can achieve in Pro Tools.Ē

I donít think thats implemented yet though. Maybe later next year but the promised doubled voice counts may or may not be there yet either.

I was talking about the compatibility with the new Mac Pro (7.1), is anyone has already tested it with Pro Tools and an Avid Card HDX...?

Yes sorry, it works great with 1 and 2 HDX cards. No issues as our co-production team got theirs already and we get our 2 New Mac Pro 7.1 28core jan 7th.

Right, that was a quote from the Apple press release for the 7,1 on their website. So three HDX cards definitely work now, and Avid will add support for at least 6 to work later.

Just upgraded from a 2008 Mac Pro, PT 10 HD3 Accel to a 2019 Mac Pro (16-core), Pro Tools 2019.12 HDX. Itís been a surprisingly smooth transition so far. Iíve only just finished updating the bulk of my plugins so I havenít run the system for an actual session yet. Pleasantly surprised to be able to continue using my Control 24 via the Neyrinck V-Control Pro software. So far, the only issue Iíve found with it is not being able to change automation modes on each channel even though it says it should work. All things considered, this has been pretty smooth, especially considering how far behind I was and being forced to jump into Catalina.

Hi all, a happy new year from Gotland, Sweden.
What slot did you put the HDX card in and did you need an adapter for the power cable?
Like the Belkin kit 6->8 pins. (One would think Avid will make new cables so that no adapter is needed eventually. 2023 :D)

Waiting for a 16-core, 96GB RAM, 2 TB SSD with basic graphic card.
Have one HDX-card with two HD/IO interfaces.

Also, anyone tried to put the iLok in the internal USB-port?
That would be great if it works.

I assume that there’s no benefit of putting the HDX card in a 16X slot so I put it in slot 6 (8X, two slots below the Apple IO card) and yes, you will need the adapter for the power cable. I bought the Belkin set of adapter cables directly from Apple and it’s the one labeled “Cable set 3, PCIe Aux Power Cable 6-pin to 6-pin”. I have a 16x16 analog HD IO and a 192 IO (16 analog in, 8 digital out) connected to it.

I haven’t tried the ilok in the internal USB port.
