Re: Mbox family driver support for Mac OS Catalina

I tried installing the driver on my Catalina laptop. It threw up an error message and wouldn't go.

I haven't tried upgrading a boot drive with that app already installed, but I doubt it would work...

Need control of hidden tracks with S3

...I know it's an S6-exclusive feature, but there's no technical reason not to allow us S3 users to control hidden tracks. EuCon gets all weird when I go to a layout with hidden tracks. TIA for...

Re: App v19.12.13 and lacks of some functionalities

Good! I often go to tracks view and quickly scroll around looking for green to make sure the next Punch Preview isn't punching tracks I don't want.

I will hang back a while longer...

Re: Music BG

Best choice: license it directly from a band that has the perfect track. This is not necessarily expensive.

Most common choice: get an account with Universal Production Music, Warner Chappell or 5...

Re: App v19.12.13 and lacks of some functionalities

Do you mean there's no green on the Dock screen at all for the tracks that are in Preview? (I've been hanging back with EuCon 19.9, haven't made the jump yet)

Re: Protools for Composing/delivering files for scoring projects

Yes you can. That's one of the under-appreciated benefits of the subscription model.

Re: Protools for Composing/delivering files for scoring projects

Video and timecode are in standard Pro Tools. For you, the biggest difference will be stereo vs. surround. You need Ultimate for surround.

Re: Protools for Composing/delivering files for scoring projects

Wait until you need it. Try a demo. Your usage of Pro Tools wouldn't require more than an hour or two of learning, so save your money until a project demands that you have it.

Re: Protools for Composing/delivering files for scoring projects

Exactly. Some composers have trouble seeing the forest from the trees (and you can't blame them, writing music 14 hours a day is hard). Making a master PT session can keep them sane.

Two examples:...

Re: Protools for Composing/delivering files for scoring projects

As a mixer, I like getting the music as a Pro Tools session. It's not required, but it's convenient. Often I'll request checkerboard stems, so the first cue is spread out over 5-10 stems, and the...

Re: Mbox family driver support for Mac OS Catalina

I'm trying to preserve an Mbox Pro 3 I have at home. It is supported until March of 2020. I filed a support ticket requesting a Catalina driver. It's true, we may never get one, but if we make enough...

Re: S1 impressions?

For the S1 users out there: with (2) S1s, can you perform VCA Multi-Master Mode? I love that feature on S3 and it wasn't clear to me if that would carry over.

Re: Bug in new video engine 2019.10

#2. I haven’t seen this issue since I posted over a month ago. Sierra, 2019.10, AJA T-Tap, ProRes proxy video. All good.

Re: Workflow question with video

Got it. You're doing session per cue, and you have 14 sessions to update every time the picture changes. Yep. You need a video slave. Or an intern. :p

Re: Workflow question with video

If you get new picture, how can you avoid loading it when checking your cues? I'm trying to think through your process, and I don't fully understand it yet.

Re: Phrasefind & Scriptsync

I know that Avid is aware of the request. I'm just making noise. I suspect that part of the holdup is a much larger issue: the bin and the workspace are poorly designed. Avid will someday overhaul...

Re: Phrasefind & Scriptsync

I am bringing this thread back from the past. A few times now I've been in sessions where I have a bin full of all the narration for a TV show, and no way to search it intelligently. Would be a great...

Distorted clips from Media Composer AAF (?)

Re: S3 vs Two S1's

None. Everything is sitting on my mix table. Three screens: Edit – Video – Mix. And then in front of that I have S3 on the left, and Dock on the right, angled slightly for easier reach. And in front...

Re: A year of waiting and we still can't control clip fx with Avid hardware

Re: A year of waiting and we still can't control clip fx with Avid hardware

And to be fair, enabling a fat high-pass filter can thump on the loudspeakers with automation if you're not careful. Clip FX do have the advantage of transparency. While we're here, what happened to...

Re: A year of waiting and we still can't control clip fx with Avid hardware

I'm with BScout on this. Clip FX are there for the mouse-based editor to get something roughed-in. If you are actually using a real surface, you're much better off with the standard Preview/Punch...

Re: Drawing volume automation for VCA grouped tracks

That is by design. The VCA will always operate, regardless of the status of the mix group. I recommend simply unhighlighting the VCA groups, that way your other groups and your 'suspend all groups'...
