Re: OffLine BTD always hangs at the end

My experience is that this is most likely caused by a plugin. Last time I had this problem it was Lexicon PCM Native Reverb.

I have the MSI Gaming Radeon RX 560 128-bit 4GB GDDR5.

Re: DSP plugs (etc) when moving back and forth between native and HDX-3

From my experience, if you create a mix with AAXDSP plug-ins and then open that session on a native rig the AAXDSP plugins will all open with their corresponding AAX-NATIVE version.

There's no...

Re: HDX Thunderbolt 3 rackmount

Bump. So really no one has gone this route to replace a Cheesgrater with an HDX Thunderbolt rack and a Mac mini?

Re: replacement for Mbox3

I ended up getting the RME Babyface Pro FS and am very happy with it. Immediate improvement in sound, very well built and well featured.

Re: replacement for Mbox3

So far it looks like either an RME Babyface or an Apogee Duet.

Anyone have actual experience with both?

Re: 2020.9!

So just to be clear, you actually think that Avid intentionally and secretly trying to screw their paying customers is a more plausible explanation?

It seems far more likely that something broke at the last minute and they quickly found what went wrong and are pushing the fix.

Re: Best workhorse plug ins - starting again!

For your budget I would definitely consider subscriptions.

Sonnox is a choice. So is Plugin Alliance.
