Re: Alignment/Tweaker tool for HD I/O

I’ve been around long enough to remember ALWAYS having one of those Spectrol tweakers in my pocket. 😀

Re: Mac Pro 5.1 Mojave - what GPU cards work?

Funny I read that firmware roadmap and said to myself “ Wow, I did all that?” :D

Whatever firmware updates required for the 5,1 are part of the OS install. It will tell you exactly what to do as...

Re: Change to Pro Tools Ultimate Renewal Pricing?

I seriously doubt you'll get an answer on what prices will be a year from now. If you think people are making noise about $199/year for non-Ultimate, wait and see what happens if Avid raises that...

Re: Avid: new HW?? HDX 8 years old!!!

Definitely better to work at 48 vs 44.1. All your recording, mixing, EQ, etc is done on the higher sample rate audio. Then do ONE last conversion down to 44.1 at the end. Or better yet, let your...

Re: ProTools price adjustments from July 1st.

Switching doesn't work when you have to collaborate with clients, studios, producers, etc all firmly entrenched in a Pro Tools workflow.

If it ever gets to the point where the fees don't make...

Re: ProTools price adjustments from July 1st.

I was kidding about the $799 price (I hope).

Re: ProTools price adjustments from July 1st.

I'm suspecting someone at Avid "forgot" to raise the current $399/year PT Ultimate Perpetual Renewal price to $799.00.

Re: ProTools price adjustments from July 1st.

So I can give up my Perpetual Ultimate license and pay $599/year or $719.88/year instead of the current $399.00/year.

Why would I do that? Am I missing something here?

Re: Recording/Monitoring Question

Totally normal. How else would you punch into an existing track if you can't hear the recorded material.

That's what the Green I button is for, puts the track in input where you only hear the...

Re: 2019.5 wtf???

Same here. 2019.5/macOS 10.14.5, the best combo since PT 9 IMO.

Re: 6-core vs. 12-core MacPro w/ ProTools

I think that is really dependent on the plug-ins you are running in a given session. Pro Tools itself uses all the cores. With the combination of mix plug-ins I typically use, I noticed a huge...

Re: Upgrading a Mac Pro 5.1 12core 2.4Ghz

I can't speak for PT 9 on 10.8. I haven't been there in a long time.

Pro Tools 11+ uses all the cores, you can no longer set the cores used in preferences.

The buffer size has more to do with...

Re: Mac Pro 2012 -should upgrade to Mojave?

If you've got an Apple approved graphics card, go for Mojave, otherwise do High Sierra.

My upgraded 5,1 is running better than it has since PT 9 on PT 2019.5 and 10.14.5.

Re: New Mac Pro

Still using my 5,1 cheese grater after almost 10 years. Probably will get one of these new ones in a year or so and keep that one into retirement.

Re: Which mac OS for PT 2019.5?

I find PT 2019.5/MacOS 10.14.4 to be the best combo since Pro Tools 9.

I can play complex HDX mix sessions at 64 or 128 buffer that had issues at 1024. Scrolling is super fast.

Perhaps the OP...

On a Mac, I have always just installed over the previous version and never had an issue.

Re: 2019.5 Ultimate on a Mac Pro 5,1

I've had the same card in my 5,1 for over a year (waiting for Mojave support). Before the card with Sierra and High Sierra, Pro Tools 12.x had issues with running reference videos in a session....
