Re: New Mac Pro (7.1)

Or, invest in the smallest usable one, on the theory that if it fails it will be less annoying to replace if it contains nothing but the operating system and applications. (Although I guess, given...

Re: New Mac Pro (7.1)

Funnily enough, have just been researching that this afternoon. I'm still waiting on the W5700X GPU to be available before ordering but, I'm tossing up between the following:


4TB internal SSD,...

Re: Can't get 64 outputs from HDX1

Reading the above I was like, surely something is wrong. But when I created a 96k session on my system (also HDX1) the mixer got chewed up very quickly. (I only have 48 I/O so it didn't exhaust it,...

Re: HDX: Mixing SSL Deltalink with HD I/O Interfaces

The latencies may not match so, at the very least, you probably don't want to be doing things in parallel (e.g. compression) mixed across interfaces. The interface provides the clock. If you are...

Re: New Mac Pro (7.1)

I haven’t watched the video but it seems odd HDX can only handle 1/34th the Boom count as Native? What am I missing?

Edit: voices.

Re: AvidAudioServer not working

OK, somehow the service was disabled in launchd. I needed to do the following, more or less:

Re: New Mac Pro (7.1)

@neilparfitt (the chap that made the video I posted above) kindly measured the rack handles – they're at least 2.5". So that would make the Mac Pro rack just under 19" deep from the front panel...

Re: New Mac Pro (7.1)

Thanks! Yeah, the adventure continues. I guess I could always use adapters at both the front and back if required. From the front rail to the very back wall I have 660mm (26") to play with –...

Yes. I guess I was trying to wish them into being shorter than the specified 24” in real life, hah!

Re: New Mac Pro (7.1)

Ah, rack rail adapters may save the day if I want to use the supplied rack rails. If anyone on this thread receives a rack Mac Pro, would be great to know the minimum length of the rails.

Re: New Mac Pro (7.1)

My rack dimensions are 600mm front to back, 480mm strip to strip. The rack Mac Pro is 539.5mm front to back including handles. So, depending on the depth of the handles, I reckon it will fit on a...

Re: New Mac Pro (7.1)

Hmm, I measured my rack and it's only 480mm from the front to back strips – the 600mm dimension is the rack frame itself. It's hard to actually tell how well the new Mac Pro would “just fit” because...

Re: New Mac Pro (7.1)

Yeah, mine is open at both front and back anyway. The rails are attached at both ends to support the weight so it’s more a question of how to space them at the rear. I suppose worst case option is to...

Worth a watch, if you like unboxing videos... which reminds me, Apple need 24" clearance for the rack rails, anyone tried to squeeze them into a 600mm deep rack?

Re: MTRX 8-channel card not showing in Pro Tools

If you don't have any other interfaces, you can set it to Pri/Pri and both ports to MTRX 32x32 –*then you have 64 I/O to play with.

Re: NAMM new HDX or nothing!!!

Here’s an idea given Avid seems to be OEM’ing a lot of hardware these days. License the UAD cards and put a TDM bus connector on them. Instant plugin ecosystem and low latency (because it would avoid...

Re: 2019.12 HD Driver install bricked my MBP

Re: NAMM new HDX or nothing!!!

Re: NAMM new HDX or nothing!!!

In the current HD Driver's Info.plist, it appears there's support for a high voice count variant (same device ID, different subsystem ID as HDX). But this could also just be a HDX card with newer...

Re: NAMM new HDX or nothing!!!

I wonder if the next iteration of HDX might be an incremental one that supports the higher voice count that was originally promised last year.

Re: NAMM new HDX or nothing!!!

Sure. If you want lots of storage, a UAD satellite, more than one HDX card, video out, etc then the Mac Pro probably ends up being cheaper as you're not paying for all those extra chassis.
