Re: 32 Channel IO Limit.. WHY?

Really? That sounds pretty stupid if it's the case. With a HDX card installed, I can switch between it and whatever core audio interfaces are installed in the system. Pro Tools always wants to close...

HDX Hardware and Ableton Live

Is anyone successfully running HDX hardware with Ableton Live? For whatever reason, Ableton Live keeps periodically kicking out HDX as my chosen playback engine. It might happen once an hour, or...

Re: 32 Channel IO Limit.. WHY?

If these new voice packs sell well, as of addition I/O licenses aren’t also on the horizon. For large I/O tracking, I just use Reaper. Particularly if you are just tapping into an existing Dante...

Re: Pro tools 2019 !

I don't really think windows support has anything to do with greed. The very reason we are talking about Steinberg, and Digidesign, and Avid, and Logic at all in 2019 is that they successfully...

Re: Worth replacing 2008 Mac Pro for upgraded 2010 Mac Pro?

Nah. It is common internet advice, and it will boost your geekbencj scores considerably when you run ram in just the 6 slots due to tripe channel operation...

Re: Pro tools 2019 !

I am trying to wrap my head around how they do this without throwing their DSP systems and DSP users under the bus. To gain 384 voices on a HDX system costs $3000 for another PCIe card. Ain't no...

Re: Pro tools 2019 !

Absolutely! My $400 is standing by in an envelope, and I have requested a physical address just in case Avid's web store still isn't working properly.

I really hope this revised audio...

Re: Pro tools 2019 !

Voices and tracks are different things, particularly when running HDX. A single 7.1.2 track uses up 10 voices. The arrangement of native plugins will also use up extra voices, depending on how you do...

Re: Best AAX DSP reverb available?

It probably can do it, but it sounds more like a backup plan by Avid in the event of installing a HD Driver that is too modern for the version of Pro Tools being used.

Re: HDX PT 2018 CPU Spikes AAE -9171 Halts Playback

Re: Best AAX DSP reverb available?

I would totally love to see Avid introduce a revised playback engine for HDX that has three options - 'Native', 'AAX-DSP only' and 'Full DSP'. It would make sense really, particularly for the...

Re: HDX PT 2018 CPU Spikes AAE -9171 Halts Playback

I am a comping together a performance now and it's all working A-Ok here.

Out of curiosity, are you running your 48 gig of ram across 6 of the 8 available ram slots in your machine?

Re: Pro tools 2019 !

It really is just a conciliatory “Here’s some more voices, can we please keep a skerrick of our reputation” gesture from Avid though. I’m a DSP user, and it doesn’t make me feel good about Avid at...

Re: Mac Pro mid2012 12 or 6 core for PT2018

Yeah, as Meads mentioned - very few people are still running the stock Apple configurations for 2009 - 2012 cMPs. I've seen those old machines go for as little as $350USD in dual CPU configurations....

Re: PING! Delay Compensation - 2019 edition

It is well overdue! Reaper has it... and even DAWs like Ableton Live have a better method of compensating for the delay of hardware inserts than Pro Tools currently offers. Obviously HDX and HDN are...

Re: HDX Doesn't Like To Run At Low Buffer Setting

Yep, that's the card. I've been using it for over a year now without any issues whatsoever. There are one or two little considerations though - it tops out a PCIe x2 speeds. So you will only get...

Re: In what area is Pro Tools REALLY lacking??

Currently 2018.12 and 10.13.6 are running pretty damn nicely on my system with HDX. I did a clean install, and made a very concise list of what plugins I need... rather than my usual habit of just...

Re: Worth replacing 2008 Mac Pro for upgraded 2010 Mac Pro?

Functionally, there is very little difference between an upgraded W3690, and the stock W3680 that Apple shipped in a bunch of cMP's.

Re: Worth replacing 2008 Mac Pro for upgraded 2010 Mac Pro?

From memory you want to use slots 1, 2, 3 (and 5, 6 & 7 for dual processor machines). Avoid using the ram slot closest to the CPU.

Re: Worth replacing 2008 Mac Pro for upgraded 2010 Mac Pro?

It is 48 gig (3x16gig) for the W3690, or 64 gig (4x16gig) for the X5690. The former will only support single CPU applications. The X5690 supports dual CPU setups (which will also increase the maximum...

Re: Worth replacing 2008 Mac Pro for upgraded 2010 Mac Pro?

The benchmark measures each system as a whole, so it includes both processors in your 2008 machine. The results seem about right.

Re: Best AAX DSP reverb available?

All systems have finite resources. The difference between HDX and Native is the prior knowledge of where that limit is verse something that equates to the old Wild, Wild West. A Nuendo system will...
