Re: HD features on 2018 LE?

OP, you only have one option. Pro Tools HD Native. The software you saw at your college would have been Native versions of the software. I managed to pick up a copy for £1000. I'd suggest eBay. There...

Re: Working with audio between Pro Tools + Premiere

Yes, this is what I've been told. By two other audio editors.
The problem is if you are working on a large production with lots of discreet channels of dialogue, they'll deliver an AAF with just the...

Re: Field Recorder Workflow

Re: Field Recorder Workflow

Re: Working with audio between Pro Tools + Premiere

Premier has a problem with exporting time code with audio, so this process might not work. Try matching by criteria if timecode doesn't work.

Re: Sample Rate for professionals

I used to get hung up on all this stuff now I just don't care. To me though, I'd record music at 24 bit 44.1. I work in sound design these days, we record on the highest we possibly can but for...

Re: Pro Tools 12.8.2 on Windows 7

I have the occasional video engine error, but I think that's because of my mbox 3. Otherwise all good.

Re: AAE-9173 - Ran Out Of CPU Power

It did indeed do the trick. I'm on 64bit. I would say though that this issue appears to be a problem for people across all platforms for people with macs and windows 10 to 7. So it seems there are a...

Re: Pro Tools 12 vs 8?

The now defunct M powered did require the old ilok dongle 1, I used it with a Delta 1010. I'd just jump straight to 12 Avid like Digidesign are not very good with legacy support. I'm amazed you held...

Re: Pro Tools 12 vs 8?

Yes they were. It's been a while since I was on 8 but to me this was the biggest leap. Completely new gui from 7. I think they gave us smpte at this point. The biggest change came from 9, a host of...

Re: Master faders question

If you have mixed too hot and are clipping on some channels simply pull down the master fader. Master faders are 64bit. Massive internal head room. So even though your channels are clipping, they are...

Re: What computer to buy to run Pro Tools 12?

I came from a Cubase background. The thing could open a session like a word document. I could count on one hand in 5 years how many times it crashed, failed to open. I started on PT 7.4 and it was...

Re: What computer to buy to run Pro Tools 12?

I don't think there is one. If you've read any of the threads on this site you'll know Pro Tools is one of the most unstable DAWs on the market. I've been using it for 8 years across several...

Re: Gunshot sfx in the movie HEAT
