Re: Can I do something to enhance my Mac Pro (mid 2012) Performance?

Do you use much in the way of samples? If so I'd put that on an ssd in a pcie slot along with the system ssd on a pcie adapter card. Leave sessions where they are now. If the answer is no on samples...

Re: Pro Tools 2020.5

Thanks for this - nice to know it's not only me but sucks that someone else is bitten by this bug. I do too much with MIDI and especially the Event List to give up that functionality just for folder...

Re: New Mac Pro setup with OWC Ram and Accelsior SSD with New Mac Pro

A file is a file is a file. Different file systems shouldn't be an issue.

Re: Sample Tank 4 in PT 11 - not loading

That's probably because of the incompatibility between PT11 and Windows 10. You can't discount that possibility. Just because it works for some people doesn't mean it will work for everyone.

Re: Sample Tank 4 in PT 11 - not loading

It's a compatibility issue between PT 11 and Win 10. Win 10 support in PT didn't happen until PT 12.5. See this chart:...

Purchase Falcon and you get a $100 US voucher to use on any future purchase from UVI. You also get 2 free UVI expansions. That's what I did as I also use Digital Performer so I need falcon to work...

Re: Can I do something to enhance my Mac Pro (mid 2012) Performance?

The Accelsior S from OWC I use holds one ssd for $50 and also provides approx. 500mb/s read/write. All depends whether one wants to host one or two ssd's in one pcie slot. I'm happy with what I've...

Re: NI stops RTAS authorizations, Native instruments discontinues service center

Got an old 17 inch Powerbook G4 upstairs in a bedroom drawer. Screen's shot but works okay through an external monitor. I keep it for sentimental reasons. Sure hope the op doesn't have all those G5's...

Oh yeah - definite difference for the good.

Re: Can I do something to enhance my Mac Pro (mid 2012) Performance?

There's only one type of pcie adapter that I know of for your drive. The one I use is from OWC - the Accelsior card. If you're keeping that 850 Pro that's the card to get.

Re: NI stops RTAS authorizations, Native instruments discontinues service center

OP says his clones/backups don't have the authorizations which I find weird. Every backup I've ever done has carried over all authorizations. Makes me wonder what he's doing.

Re: Can I do something to enhance my Mac Pro (mid 2012) Performance?

That's about the speeds I'm getting with my Samsungs 850 & 860 on OWC Accelsior pcie cards. One is my system drive and the other for samples. Like you said - speed on a budget.

Re: Can I do something to enhance my Mac Pro (mid 2012) Performance?

The point is expense. OP didn't say how much he was willing to spend or if he wanted to use stuff he already had. It's one thing to spec high end parts with their concomitant price or running on a...

Re: NI stops RTAS authorizations, Native instruments discontinues service center

You are way late. NI long ago stopped supporting RTAS and I remember getting an email to that effect all those years ago. As to CPU replacement I'd not worry about that because you won't find a...

Re: Importing Audio from Sonar to Protools 2020

I know that when I tried it with PT 11.3.1 and files from Sonar 8.3 PT did not recognize the time stamp and I had to manually reline the files. Fortunately that was only a couple of pieces as other...

Re: Can I do something to enhance my Mac Pro (mid 2012) Performance?

Doesn't that depend on what specific ssd you're using? Samsung 850/860 types don't need the card you're talking about. NVME types need that card for full speed.

Re: Can I do something to enhance my Mac Pro (mid 2012) Performance?

If your ssd is something like a Samsung 850/860 type drive then go to OWC and get their Accelsior adapter card.

Re: Play 4 AAX for PT 10 & 11

I thought I posted a reply here but looks like it disappeared. What I wrote was: you must have mis-typed as there is no such Play version that I know of.

Re: Can I do something to enhance my Mac Pro (mid 2012) Performance?

SSD on a pcie adapter will have roughly twice the throughput in the same amoutn of time. And if you go with an nvme type drive it'll be so fast you won't have time to blink. But the cheapest would be...

Re: Play 4 AAX for PT 10 & 11

Jeez - yet another post in another forum here on the same problem? There's one in the PT10 subforum and another in the PT12 subforum. That makes at least three so far. Not cool. Against the TOS. Of...
