Wether the CCC processing overhead is negligible or not depends on what the IO performance is.

Try doing exactly what I just said, which I do frequently. It’s about 40 minutes here to do a CCC...

Re: Macbook Pro backup before repair

This is all going ass backwards.

One of the whole points of cloning a drive is to get a bootable clone... that you can then test by booting off, testing is all important here. And this can make...

Re: Macbook Pro backup before repair

“Thunderbolt 3” tells us nothing that useful. Does that drive have a slow 4,800 rpm disk inside it or a NVNe SSD? Raw performance on these drives can differs by more than an order of magnitude.

Lots does not seem good here. You only have one backup drive. You are suggesting trying out a new backup tool to the same drive... the danger of you destroying all your backups by making a finger...

Re: No sound digi 003! Help please!

Start at each end and work forwards/backwards. Do your monitors and cables work? Do headphones work? Etc. can you get any other output on the 003 to work, e.g. just feed it signal gen.

Ugh, well folks who might have real suggestions here may not see this because of the mislabeling this thread “video” vs. “graphics”.

Re: Pro Tools version for older MacBook Pro

I would not want to be running one video file on a 4,800 rpm boot drive. And is that drive even large enough? If I *had* to keep this model I would put put the video on a SATA III boot SSD... so size...

Re: ADAT signal does not show in PT'18

Pro Tools IO cannot tell what is going on. It is a dumb as a rock and just cares about IO numbers. It is likely not the place to be focusing effort. The IO setup is largely cosmetic. Make sure you...

And where do you put the video?... likely why you want a SATA III boot drive and *try* putting it there.

Re: Fast Track USB & Mac OSX 10.9 not working

Ya beat me to that one. I like to think the OP got it sorted and has released multiple top selling EDM albums (sorry but I have decided that Captain Adama is a great name for an EDM artist). :-)

You cannot just install Thunderbolt into a Mac Pro, or any other computer, thanks to Apple this is a complex mess of integration with the graphics subsystem.

What computer? What connectivity?

Got Thunderbolt... then UAD Apollo 16 or Thunderbolt 3... then UAD Apollo x16.

Re: Need help about upgrading from pro tool hd 12.5 to a higher perpetual version
