Re: Please Help Me Upgrade My Old TDM Rig

I had an HD4 Accel PCI-x in a i5 PC, running 8.1.1 and it was OK, not optimum though. I picked up a 6-slot Magma PE6R4 Chassis on eBay for $325 with PCIe interface card & cables. Then I picked up 2...

Re: Heat + Complete Plugin Bundle for all subscribers

I paid a bunch to upgrade my Pro Tools Vanilla to Ultimate last December and seen one decent update and now I have to pay again. Since they're giving Heat away with subscriptions only, it means they...

Re: Pro Tools Ultimate / HD Reinstatement?

My personal thought is if your just tracking with it I see no advantage going to the latest. If you start building your mix as you track adding plugins as you go, then maybe. I have and old HD6 Accel...

Re: CPU question mono vs stereo

It's about time somebody said this, but you're preaching to the choir as nobody really cares these days. It's all about what have you done for me lately sad to say.

Re: Good Studio Sub Woofer

The B&Ws are not really that stout below 80 Hz so I've stuck to 120 - 150 which makes life a little fuller.

Re: Good Studio Sub Woofer

My mains are B&W DM604 S2 powered by two bridged pairs out of a McIntosh MC-7106 amp. I had a DBX crossover and a Hafler P7000 "Diablo" amp laying around so for hoots & giggles I got a pair of...

Re: -9173 Error Finally Gone?

What we do is take an older PC which we added raided (is that a word?) hard drive capacity to and run a Linux server distribution on (my son handles that stuff). In addition to the original location...

Re: To HEAT or not to HEAT?

I’ve never used Heat and probably won’t now as it’s usage has been extended to Vanilla PT with prices set to rise when the principals of supply & demand kick in. Everything I’ve seen about heat is...

Re: HDX card still only shows 256 tracks

If you get 256 tracks with each HDX card, then a new Mac Pro with HDX6 would give 1536 voices. After the update that goes to 384 per HDX card and makes it 2304 voices. Sounds good to me!

I have several systems including an i9 rig as the latest and an 2008 Mac Pro 3.2GHz 8 core with HD6 Accel in a Magma chassis (I might swap it to an i7 rig on Win 7). I can run Waves V9.3 TDM plugins...

Re: New Mac Pro

I was a firm believer in rack mount until I started building PCs with Noctua DH14/15 CPU coolers, they just won’t fit in a 4 space rack. Might have been an issue to making things fit (and not...

Re: Anyone Not Seen This? (New Mac Pro)

I agree, but I looked and did not see it due to the title of that thread. I put this up for the masses I suppose.

And that you for the title change.

Re: From 9 upgrade ?

I just checked my Avid store account and in 2014 I paid $199 for a perpetual upgrade from 9. So in 2019 $299 seems like a reasonable deal to me and I'm known to squeeze the buffalo dung out of a...

Re: Which mac OS for PT2019.5??

Those real cores with hypertheading disabled are twice as powerful as the pseudo cores you get with hypertheading on. Can’t get something fer’ nothing!
