Re: Is there a way to extract plugin settings from a project file?

MIDI editor zoom

Since I've moved to PT 2019.6 I've had a problem with the MIDI editor and the zoom that comes up by default. When I first did some editing in the MIDI editor window things were zoomed way out both...

Re: Question on drive allocation practices with modern systems. (SSD vs DAE errors)

I have a bunch of spinners that don't sleep. The externals I use for backups don't sleep nor do the WD blacks I have sleep. If the drives sleep then why does Apple have a setting in OSX preferences...

Re: moving pro tools sessions to an external drive

Assuming all your sessions are self-contained and don't reference any external audio just drag the folder for each session to the external drive. Being an external drive OSX will just copy over...

Re: Question on drive allocation practices with modern systems. (SSD vs DAE errors)

I can vouch for the durability of WD Black drives - I have a pair of 4 TB spinners in my 2012 MacPro - one for samples and one for sessions. Be aware of so-called 'enterprise' drives. When I was...

Re: Updating all plugins and avid bits without going through individual updates.

If you still have it installed ;)
Now if the op is asking about third party plugins - not unless a developer has an updater program like Arturia or NI's Native Access. I've found that most of such...

You visited the site I linked to, turned off Gatekeeper and still can't install the current version of the ILM s/w? Try rebooting after turning off Gatekeeper. Are you running as admin? What exact...

Re: official apple wireless keyboard with protools keymaps

You have failed to answer the question: what's so special about having an 'official' Apple keyboard? How do you know that the Editors Keys wireless one is not an 'official' Apple product? You're not...

Re: Software component unavailable - Ilok

The only thing you don't have in your system rundown in your profile is what OSX you are running. You really should have that in there. Sounds like maybe OSX Gatekeeper is keeping you from installing...

Re: Issues connecting PreSonus 16.4.2 to new IMac

You don't say what OSX is on the new machine but it's a safe bet it's some form of Mojave. You do know about the security issues that have changed with Mojave right? See this page as it may help you:...

Re: official apple wireless keyboard with protools keymaps

Just checked on the site and from the looks of things it's the US English wireless model is sold out BUT the UK/Euro English wireless model is in stock. I wonder what the difference is?

Re: SSD vs. 7200RPM Drive Tests

All USB 3.0 ports are NOT USB 3.1 ports. While physically they may be the same connector the theoretical throughput speeds are different. USB 3.0 has 5 Gbps and 3.1 ports are double that at 10 Gbps....

Re: SSD vs. 7200RPM Drive Tests

Re: 2019.6.0 Won't Open Older PTX Files

Haven't had to do that but good advice. What I was wondering about was did the op make a slip in what he wrote when he said Force Quit won't open.

Depending on what exact vintage cheesegrater you have you can go up to High Sierra and if you change the video card to Mojave. Part of the challenge is getting installers for older OSX versions....

Re: 2019.6.0 Won't Open Older PTX Files

Those older session files - PT10 or PT11? I've had some issues with files from those versions but those have been due to certain plugins either way out of date or no longer available. What I do is to...

Re: Komplete Kontrol Broken in 2019.5

There can also be preference folders and folders in the application support folder for the program. Just trashing the application from the computer doesn't always remove all traces of the program.

Re: Eq & Compressor for Garritan Solo Grand Piano

There are no basic principles for eq and compression on piano - sampled or not. No 'cut this freq, boost that freq' type of thing. Same for compression although I like very light compression with no...

Re: Komplete Kontrol Broken in 2019.5

No but they will probably re-appear if/when you install a new PT update. Putting plugins into the 'uninstalled plugins' folder has them stay there until an update is installed. It's part of the...

Re: Pro Tools 12 with Sierra 10.12.6

Re: Komplete Kontrol Broken in 2019.5

Yup. If you're wondering where one of the plugin's is located look in the 'soundfield' insert category. You'll also see it in the 2019.6 splash screen at startup.
