Re: CPU spikes? NO! ***sigh*** yes.

Unbelievable crap is sold by office supply stores as USB and firewire cables.

Re: capture my mix off broadcast for comparison?

I was part of a group that recorded the SPDIF stereo output of cable boxes around the country to try and figure out why mixes often didn't sound right. We found a combination of stations applying...

Re: Shut up and take my money!!...

My understanding is that both AR and SSL have individual non-bundle deals with Waves.

Re: Shut up and take my money!!...

EMI's standard studio line levels were more than ten dB. lower than what U.S. gear was designed for. Dropping input levels by 10 or 20 dB. (I use clip gain) can improve the sound of many digital...

Re: Reel Tape Still Relevant?

Not at all redundant in an HDX system! It also sounds better at 96k.

Re: Question: Frequency of PT Updates for Compatibility on the Newest Operating Syste

In Avid's defense, Apple and M$ are both notorious for last-minute OS changes that turn fixes made to support early beta OS versions into a huge waste of resources. In this case, Apple has...

Re: Can anyone explain bad sound at theater?

I honestly don't think today's theaters sound nearly as good as I remember back in the early 1960s.

Re: New -27 LKFS Spec

Sounds like they've moved to use some audio compression to even out volume levels. They probably don't want to reveal precisely what they are doing for competitive reasons.

Re: New -27 LKFS Spec

Their requirement makes sense when you consider that they are adding both data and audio compression. The compression of data and audio may well be different amounts for different streaming...

Re: 2018.7 So Far...

Top one clock to the left and bottom one click to the right is the basic tape emulation. I often clip gain down 6-12 dB. and run it in pre.

Re: 44.1 vs 48 khz... looking for a simple answer

CD masters were originally made using videotape editing gear and the disk uses Philips' video disk technology that allows replication in a vinyl plant. Only Sony's marketing ever claimed any kind of...

Re: Question: Frequency of PT Updates for Compatibility on the Newest Operating Syste

Avid's definition of "support" is far more demanding than other DAWs because of their corporate clients. Most of us only use a tiny fraction of Pro Tools features but they all need to pass tests...

Re: 44.1 vs 48 khz... looking for a simple answer

Actually, there is a good explanation. Dynamics processing and saturation distort a lot less without adding a great deal of latency. Simple record/playback shouldn't make much difference but when you...

Re: Mastering for bad systems?

The problem with bad systems is that they aren't consistent at all. That's why mastering engineers use really flat, full range monitors.

Re: Anybody running Malwarebytes Premium with 2018.7?

Defender allows you to bypass folders. I do it for my audio apps and plug-ins. I also run a scan with Malwarebytes free every few weeks.

Re: Dual Xeon Scalable LGA 3647 workstation. Anyone?

It's certainly possible that more cores at the same speed might be better but six is supposed to be the point of diminishing returns. I bought a 6 core 3.37G processor three years ago based on that...

Re: Dual Xeon Scalable LGA 3647 workstation. Anyone?

That study is pretty old. My information came from several developers over the past few years based on tests using 6 core and higher processors. They felt higher speed beats more than 6 cores.

Re: Dual Xeon Scalable LGA 3647 workstation. Anyone?

This is at the expense of an increase in latency which audio developers try to avoid.

Re: Dual Xeon Scalable LGA 3647 workstation. Anyone?

The very latest generation 5 GHz. Intel 6 core would be my first choice. More cores will speed up servers and video rendering but slow down real-time audio processing which is what we do. They are...
