Re: Pro tools 2019 !

I've been using the combination of Pro Tools and Samplitude for the past 16 years since ditching Apple. The two compliment each other incredibly well although I don't think either one can replace the...

Re: 16 core dual Xeon not enough cpu...

I've read that distributing instructions across multiple cores increases latency so audio developers are hesitant to do that.

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

Cubase is a MIDI sequencer. Pro Tools an audio recorder/editor / mixer that also edits MIDI. I'd rather see them sticking to real advancements rather than merely copying what another developer did 25...

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

Why would have anyone created Superior Drummer if people could simply use the Pro Tools MIDI editor? Pro Tools was the first HOST for third-party audio processing. I'm not sure we want to see Avid...

Re: Avid Link app

It's available on Android but a search in playstore doesn't find it. I brought up some other Avid apps and there it was lurking at the bottom of the page.

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

I think it's mostly lacking in marketing which has been the case from the very beginning!

First off, it's an audio editor and host for third-party plug-ins. If something can be done with a...

VCAs let you control an entire mix by riding just eight faders on a control surface.

Re: Space Cabin Audio Release Desert Drums

This is brilliant!

I never stopped using late '60s drum setups because I can make them into absolutely anything with effects.

Re: r&b vocals mixing tips

This matches my experience!

We also used Neumann KM-86s at Motown with great success. One thing I'd add is that a really great studio allows the singer to work much farther back without losing...

Re: i7 Builds - Specs and Results

More cores don't buy us much because spreading a plug-in across multiple cores increases latency. It's great for databases and video rendering but not real time audio. What does make a difference is...

Re: Pro tools 2018 and Windows 7

My backup system SSD is windows 8.1. It's really good, better than 7 ever was and possibly better than 10.

Re: Shut up and take my money!!...

EMI's standard studio line levels were more than ten dB. lower than what U.S. gear was designed for. Dropping input levels by 10 or 20 dB. (I use clip gain) can improve the sound of many digital...

Not at all redundant in an HDX system! It also sounds better at 96k.

Re: Can anyone explain bad sound at theater?

I honestly don't think today's theaters sound nearly as good as I remember back in the early 1960s.

Re: New -27 LKFS Spec

Sounds like they've moved to use some audio compression to even out volume levels. They probably don't want to reveal precisely what they are doing for competitive reasons.

Re: New -27 LKFS Spec
