Re: Undesirable space gap in the beginning and end of a track when bouncing or export

A friend of mine has just been battling this and he passed this on (he doesn't have an account here):

Good detective work on figuring out it was the mp3 conversion that was doing it, I had a...

Re: Pro Tools locks up moving windows

For context: I have two monitors, one HiDPI, one not. GPU is a W5700X, macOS 10.15.4, Pro Tools 2020.5. It would seem the source and destination scale are inverted (that which is triggering the...

Pro Tools locks up moving windows

Moving the Edit window between monitors with different scale factors (from non-retina to retina) seems to lockup 2020.5, at least in the case where the session's saved window state is on the...

Re: Can HDX & HD Native coexist?

I actually tried this the other day, but I could never select the HD Native playback engine without Pro Tools crashing.

Re: HDX and Dolby Atmos

What's FF PCIe-R? Focusrite Dante card in a chassis? Or is there a Thunderbolt solution I'm unaware of?

Re: Pro Tools HDX2 working on new Mac Pro

Yes, I did the same re: SSD placement. Anyway, you can get the power from wherever suits. It should make sense when it arrives!

Re: Pro Tools HDX2 working on new Mac Pro

It must also depend on the cable length (or perhaps how far one is willing to stretch it), because the 6 pin cable I had used in my MacPro5,1 worked fine for me with the cards in slots 2 and 3.

Re: Using HDX interface to record to Ableton

Ableton are aware of a specific issue with the interaction of the Avid HD CoreAudio drivers and Ableton Live. There is no timeline for fixing it at this stage unfortunately.

Re: AVIDPlay Distribution?

The short answer is, unfortunately, the low hanging fruit is gone in terms of pitching to playlists and it's difficult (in my experience) without a label. I have a project with a major, and one...

Re: HDX Card not Showing Up in Core Audio or Pro Tools Ultimate 2019.12

Might be time to ring the retailer you bought it from, or use your Avid Support Code.

Re: HDX Card not Showing Up in Core Audio or Pro Tools Ultimate 2019.12

Hmm. OK, another approach which may or may not yield useful results. Try starting Pro Tools, and have a look at the most recent log file in ~/Library/Logs/Avid (you can use Command-Shift-G to go...

Re: AVIDPlay Distribution?

TuneCore was fine, but yes, not really worth it if you don't get a lot of streams. If you do, it pays for itself quickly.



Well, they're entering a crowded market so I suppose they have to...

Re: HDX Card not Showing Up in Core Audio or Pro Tools Ultimate 2019.12

Launch it with the chassis connected, but not the interface. See if that works first.

Ah sorry, you didn't need to type the "$" – that was supposed to represent the prompt. Just type "kextstat|grep DigiDal".

Re: HDX Card not Showing Up in Core Audio or Pro Tools Ultimate 2019.12

You might need to start Pro Tools once before running DigiTest to avoid the -1173 error (yes, contrary to what DigiTest says).

I would start with: Apple Menu -> About This Mac -> System Report. Do...

Re: Hardware/sample rate errors on MacPro7,1

This appears to be MTRX-specific, too. If I just connect a HD I/O to the first card there are no issues changing sample rate.

Re: AVIDPlay Distribution?

DistroKid is $20/year for 1 band/artist, but unlimited records, as I understand it. More for multiple artists. And some of the extras are billed per record. So yes, it did actually add up quite...

Re: Hardware/sample rate errors on MacPro7,1

Still seeing this after killing the CoreAudio driver :( Seems to be AAE error -6080.

NB: error is the number of peripherals connected to the HDX cards changed, not the number of cards....

Re: AVIDPlay Distribution?

I’m a bit skeptical that they’ll be in it for the long haul. I recently switched to DistroKid for independent releases and have no complaints.
