Re: Anyone on Big Sur 11.2.1?

I'm not using Big Sur on the ProTools machine, but it's possible to do an internet recovery and choose an older OS. It's been a while since I've done this so I don't remember every step, but I...

Re: The following plug-ins... are not valid 64-bit AAX plug-ins

I'm getting this with Lexicon's PCM FX, albeit on a Mac (Catalina), but it's the same message and for all I know a similar issue.

Downloading the latest installers from their site and attempting...

Re: Unable to assign MIDI tracks to certain VIs

It happened again tonight, and this time with an older session which used Superior Drummer (a single MIDI channel VI). Nothing I did allowed me to send the MIDI channel to Superior Drummer. I opened...

Re: Unable to assign MIDI tracks to certain VIs

Interesting... I'll give that theory a go. Come to think of it, I believe I'd started off with a multi-channel VI on that Instrument track, then later switched to EZD, and that might have been the...

Re: Unable to assign MIDI tracks to certain VIs

It's happening again today, and again with a single-channel VI, and again EZ Drummer. Try to select EZD on a MIDI track and voila... it instantly changes to another VI that's (not* EZD. It's an...

Re: So, no renewal. We stay at 2020.

I think there's some sensitivity and protectiveness associated with investing in the annual fee year after year, and I sense discomfort from some of these people when others suggest that the fee is...

Re: Relab LX480 and Seventh Heaven

I think you'd be making a big mistake if you don't put Cinematic Rooms (from LiquidSonics, the makers of Seventh Heaven) into consideration. I've been a reverb junkie - hardware and software - for...

Re: What OS X for Protools 2020.12

I've had the best luck with Catalina, and by an appreciable margin. It's quicker and smoother than previous OSs.

This is a tough subject because each person's configuration will vary, depending...

Re: Following Plugs Failed 64 Bit Blah Blah

Does that fix the issue with ML Labs, too?

I have a couple of their plugins but (thankfully) haven't seen this issue yet.

The reverbs continue to operate as expected with Catalina -- the FX, however, seem to be a different story. The most current installers won't even run -- they give an error that suggests deleting the...

Re: reinstall PT after upgrading to Catalina?

Have you gone through, plugin by plugin, to make sure that you're using the latest/greatest version of each? One bastard, outdated plugin can cause what you're experiencing. It's a necessary step...

Re: Unable to assign MIDI tracks to certain VIs

Multiple studios in multiple locations using various and different gear/OS/versions of PT have experienced this bug, so it's something else. It may be a ghost plaguing and following our company...

Re: Unable to assign MIDI tracks to certain VIs

EZ Drummer isn't the culprit -- this bug happens with other multi-channel VIs as well. Stylus RMX is the second most common offender. It has happened with Kontakt, too.

I suspect that there's some...

Re: Unable to assign MIDI tracks to certain VIs

Multiple audio outs but single MIDI channel. In any case, I use EZ Drummer all the time and this issue is rare. Something is causing it, I just can't imagine what it is. If memory serves, it also...

Unable to assign MIDI tracks to certain VIs

At random, MIDI tracks are unable to be assigned to specific VIs (which are on Instrument tracks). It happens once every few months but it's been going on for years. In today's session, everything...

Re: Anyone use EQ-III for mastering?

I don't see any "overwrought" sentiments here -- that's an over-amplified term. There are opinions, and some of them have come with qualification after careful consideration.

Re: Exponential Audio R2 $19.95

Incredible price considering the quality you get. I paid that for a drink recently. This is where digital music production is now. $20 (or $15 according to Southside) for a truly great product.

Re: Anyone use EQ-III for mastering?

I sometimes use it as an automatable HPF for tracks that aren't crucial (i.e. reverb returns). Not to dump on EQIII, but there are much better options in 2021 which don't break the bank.
