Re: so no possibility to use more s3s but what about the S1

Apart from the top row of encoders (which I don't use very often) I see 2xS1 as a replacement of the S3. It is also a lot cheaper!

You're not forced to use the ipads so you can hang your large...

Re: Avid S1...I am excited!

The S1 looks really good!

I'm also finally seeing the EQ curve on the dock, which has been long overdue!

Re: Avid S1 & S4

Because they have killed off the M10 which was a superior product.
Making the S4 now the cheapest option, only big no-go is the cheap faders.

As soon as the stock of M10's dries out, the only...

Re: S6 M10 replaced by S4

Thanks for the info Eddie,

Most mixers I know find the faders the most important aspect of the S6.
Those ALPS faders of the s3 don’t belong on a piece of equipment with that pricetag, in my...

Re: Avid HDX card not being recognized

Did you buy the card from an Irish reseller on ebay?

Then you bought yourself a defective card and AVID will not fix it.

Re: Avid S1 & S4

The s6 faders are indeed amazing, and for me the major reason to want to buy one. But now Avid have made that impossible by shifting the premium faders to the m40 only.

Compared to the s6, the...

Re: Avid S1 & S4

Yeah I get that. But it isn’t really fair to call the s4 a budget-conscious more affordable option. When what you are actually doing is making the cost of entry to s6 a lot more expensive, by killing...

S6 M10 replaced by S4

Hi Eddie (or others at AVID)

At first I was very excited to see a scaled down version of the S6 for the, as you market it, budget-conscious studios and customers.

But after seeing the pricing...

Re: Avid S1 & S4

How on earth can a “budget s6” cost more than a s6 m10-8-5?

For the cheaper s3 style faders 10-15k would have been a more sensible starting point.


Edit:

S4 8 fader: 24000
S6 8 fader: 22000

Re: Application Manager. Managing what?

But I was on Mojave with the previous version too and didn't see this.

Re: New Software Release EuControl Version 19.5

With this update the OLED behaviour is very strange and buggy.
(switching back and forth between parameters also does not update the screens correctly)

Eddie, are you aware of these issues and...

Re: HDX card still only shows 256 tracks

I would agree.

AVID are trying to get the last bit of juice out of their almost 10 year old dsp cards. And they are not succeeding at this moment.

Re: -9173 Error Finally Gone?

Yes, my system was and is fully optimised.

The error is completely random and is a known issue that has not been resolved in 2019.5

Re: CPU usage different with 2019.5?

I'm still getting the same random -9173 errors when CPU load is 8% every once in a while.
Not only that, but it creates a small audio glitch which was not there in the previous version.

Re: Can't control Q width on stock Avid EQs

What would be great is to at least give it as an option in a settings page to have clicking the knob either reset the frequency or go to Q mode.

It might be me, but I don’t see many scenario’s...

Re: HDX card still only shows 256 tracks

Hdx is an old platform. It’s not unsurprising that native cpu power is far more capable than a 9 year old dsp card.
