Re: Pro Tools vs Reaper

Interesting point. I originally started recording my music with a 4 track tascam. I often forget that I did spend a lot of time with that thing long before learning pro tools.
But, I don’t think...

Re: Pro Tools vs Reaper

If you like tweaking/customizing things, reaper might be worth a look. If you just want to keep making music, I would just hold out at 12.4 until you have the extra cash to update. Your clients...

Re: Share your random fact here

La fin is much different, it’s 9%. and while brewed in Canada it’s really more of a Belgian style beer. That same brewery also makes a beer called “A tout le monde” which comes complete with the...

Re: Sad news for Dave Mustaine

Definitely a big fan of Mustaine's work. Spent a lot of my time in high school listening to Rust in Peace, Countdown to Extinction and Youthanasia... Great albums.

Re: Soundtoys PurePitch/SoundBlender on PT 6.4.1 TDM (win xp)?

On mix systems for Mac, I believe the 6.4.1 version is 2.x. The bundle of these 3 awesome plugins used to be called “wave mechanics ultratools” ... I can’t remember if the 2.x version changed to...

Re: HD cards with two sync connectors

There are 2 formats of HD cards, the newer PCIe and the older PCI. The PCI HD cards have the PCIX form factor, but the extra row of pins is not actually used, so they will fit and function in a PCI...

Re: And in other ”news” Waves are having a fire sale ... $29 for ”all” plugins ..

I agree $29 is a smokin deal for some of them.

I recommend:

API 2500
SSL E Channel
H-delay

Those 3 are my most commonly used waves plugs, if you don’t have them they are well worth...

Re: 2019 iMac i9 + PT 2018 + Mojave

Re: NY Times They Really Don’t Make Music Like They Used To

Re: PT5 with Waves V4 - don't connect iLok to License Manager

I had a similar problem a few years ago with one of the license cards that slid into the old iloks. At some point, the ilok software stopped supporting those, so the new ilok software ate the...

Any other MiDI data other than notes? You should see the controller type listed in the same drop down if it has automation. I.e. modwheel is CC1, etc.

Re: Ancient HD3 PCIx system - any use?!

The PCI/PCIx thing always seems to generate confusion.

Re: Superior drummer 2 error

Switch the view from “notes” to “controllers -> sustain” and see if there is any sustain pedal automation there.

Re: 888 - 16 as stand alone

The 888/24 could work as an ADC with Analogue in, AES out... in this config there was no need for a digilink connection. As the OP said, there were jumpers inside to set it to either 48 or 44.1 kHz....
