Re: Dante Controller and "Pro-Tools-First" Issue

You are thrashing around and wasting time.

You do not press N several times, you just hold the key down while Starting Pro Tools until the Playback Engine dialog appears. Are you on macOS? by...

Re: Dante Controller and "Pro-Tools-First" Issue

Other folks have already said this... but again... you are wasting your time and maybe your credibility at work trying to use Pro Tools First. Including because nobody on DUC who knows what they are...

Re: Best drive options - 2013 MacPro PT Ultimate

Re: Compensate Input/Output Delay with external converters – not H/W Insert delay!

Re: Best drive options - 2013 MacPro PT Ultimate

Re: Best drive options - 2013 MacPro PT Ultimate

How about some size info? How large are your sample? Sessions? Are you having any performance issues running them?

Re: DigiLink I/O license not found

Re: Slowed down playback without an interface
