Re: Boom

I've run into this issue in the past. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to it. What I've done to fix it is, not starting a new session, but deleting the instrument track, opening a new...

Re: What to keep on Session drive

Yeah, I'm thinking of going to 180days too. If I haven't done anything with a project for 6 months, I'm likely not going to for a long while.

Re: What to keep on Session drive

That's actually a decent idea, Gary. I like the simplicity of it. Thanks. In my case I'm only backing up my own stuff as I'm not mixing for others (usually). Thanks for this tip!

Re: What to keep on Session drive

My current session drive is 750gig, more than enough for anything current. Eventually I'll get a 1tb SSD, then I'll do as you suggested. For now, though, I want to clean off some stuff and organize...

What to keep on Session drive

My PT session drive is starting to get full. Of course I have everything backed up, but I've always hesitated to delete anything off the session drive...not sure why.



So, I was wondering,...

Re: Pro Tools vs Reaper

I have to agree with Andrei here. I have PT, Reaper and Reason. But I mainly use Reason for its rack instruments, not as a DAW, and Reaper I used mainly to host VSTs that didn't have AAX versions. ...

Re: Some great plugin deals at JRR shop to celebrate 21 years

All these deals look great, but the thing is, do I really need any more plugins right now? I have many excellent ones already between my Waves stuff, the Avid package of all the pro stuff, and...

Re: Vanishing audio files

Well that’s no fun. I’ve never seen that either. Just a thought, but try loading the session from your most recent backup file instead of the main session file. Perhaps the list audio will...

Re: Way to turn off the message of a dupicate track number?

Just to elaborate on this a bit. The scheme "Trackname.01" will automatically go to "Trackname.02" when you do a second take on a playlist. "Trackname.03" for third take, etc. The ".01" triggers...

Re: Did the latest Melodyne update hose my rig

I've never seen that one before Dave. Have you tried going back to your previous PT version? Doesn't look like something Melodyne would cause. What happens if you just uninstall melodyne?
