Re: Has anyone noticed that it takes a lot longer to find and re-link files in PT12+?

I envy your experience as in all my years of using Pro Tools, I never saw that behavior. In my experience, it always dragged in locating files. So I have always pointed it to the proper folder first...

Re: My ProTools 12 EDU license is not in my iLok Account - auto-upgrade from PT10

When logged into your account, can you not access the support center and create a new support case?

Re: 32bit float-point audio recording?

Something most people haven't realized is that every sample in a 32-bit floating point word is actually only 24-bits.

Re: Pro Tools as SMPTE generator

Reaper is free to try. It has a SMPTE file generator.

Re: Issue With Using Second Monitor

1024x768 is a 4:3 ratio. I always use matched displays on my dual display setups and I always set them to use their native resolution.

Re: Issue With Using Second Monitor

I don't know how relevant this still may be, but Skootch was (is?) a popular utility for running Pro Tools on Windows.

Re: Issue With Using Second Monitor

Don't you have to extend the Pro Tools window across both monitors before you can have the edit or mix window on one or the other?

iLok activation errors on plugins (AAE-7504)

Yes, I did open it. Other than not having some of the plugins you have, it opened just fine for me. My gut feels it’s hardware related. I know it’s a hassle, but I would format a new drive and...

Re: Connecting a hardware synth through USB?

The reface doesn't send audio over USB, only MIDI. To record the actual audio, you'll need a real audio interface to patch the analog outs on the keyboard into.

Re: True or False or

Part of the art of recording and mixing is establishing your own personal references. That is, the volume at which you monitor, the position of your interface volume knob and the gain level at which...

Re: True or False or

The simplest aspect of gain staging that everyone learns is to achieve a good signal to noise ratio without clipping. Stick to the job of recording long enough and hopefully you'll learn two other...

Re: True or False or

If you're going to narrow the scope like that, your argument becomes moot because gain staging begins at the pre amp and if you negate the analog side, you're not talking about gain staging. All you...

Re: True or False or

Gain staging is supremely important because it begins at the preamp.

Send your session off to a top tier mixer and you're going hear about it if he has to bring relative gains into the ballpark...

Re: C24 Mic Inputs 1-8 D25 Need Help!

Is the input cable plugged into Mic In 1-8 and not Line/DI in 1-8? Is the preamp set to mic in? Does the clip indicator illuminate if you crank the gain too high with signal present? Can you get...

Re: C24 Mic Inputs 1-8 D25 Need Help!

Tascam format actually only applies to AES digital on a DB25 connector, but it's wired the same as analog so your cable should be all good.

The previous poster mentioned that you need to have...

Re: Newbie: how-to even-out trax timings

You need to build a tempo map if you want to be able to quantize your new drums to the original song.

Re: iLok activation errors on plugins (AAE-7504)

Can you Dropbox a link to just one of your session files? I'd like to try and open it to see what happens. Just the .ptx file, no media files needed.
