Re: Tech Question re : mix tweaks

Hi Rich,

For years I've been successfully using Nicecast. At end of life, I cross graded to Audio Hijack based on the online documentation that claimed I could broadcast from my local server with...

Re: Commit Sucks!!

Commit works well here, with one exception: I often end up with extremely long handles (for lack of a better term) at the end of the committed audio file. For example, if I commit a 3 minute vocal...

Wish for multi license discount yearly fee for HD

As the purchaser of several HD licenses, I wish Avid would offer a discount for multiple upgrade renewals. Multiple $399/year fees add up quickly. Given that I have not called for support in over 15...

Re: 12.8.1 - Panning Bug on my System

FYI I have the same issue in PT HD 12.8.0. My workaround is to add breakpoints just barely inside the breakpoints created with the Trimmer tool.

Re: STOP trying to make EL Capitan work!

PT 12.4 HD is mostly solid on my MacPro4,1 Nehalem machine. GUI lags (but only slightly) if I adjust plugin parameters while session is playing. I dislike it, but it does not stress me out.

Good News: PTHD 12.4 + OS X 10.11.2

Just a heads up to anyone considering El Capitan 10.11.2... It is stable for me. The only drag is a *mildly* glitchy GUI when the session is playing, mostly apparent when sweeping frequencies or...

Re: el capitan

Johnny, will you please keep us posted on your success with OS 10.11.2? This is an interesting topic to me because all my Macs are 10.8.5, PT HDX 11.3. I am ready to install PT HD 12.3.1, and am...

Re: Is the 11.3.2 update better than the 11.3.1?

First thing I check when hearing clicks and pops is the clock settings. Could clock issues be part of your problem?

Hi Steve, the same thing happens when I print analog hardware inserted tracks back into PT 11.3 (HDX), with or without Melodyne. It never misbehaved before adding a UAD2 Octo card to my system. Do...

Re: Computer Freezes when moving mouse while re-activating tracks

I've had it happen when reactivating an audio track with no automation, but the track did have clip gain edits. No software plugins--only a single hardware insert and a single pre-fader send....

Re: Is there really need for ext. SSD? One SATA SSD enough?

Something else to think about: If you enable disk cache, and you have plenty of memory, performance of the audio drives should be adequate, regardless of SSD or HDD. For the OS drive, however, SSD...

Re: Is there really need for ext. SSD? One SATA SSD enough?

I did nearly the same thing, and I agree that 250 GB SSD would be better than 128 GB for the boot drive.

I personally would stick with a 7200 rpm HDD for the audio drive. More storage, less...

Re: PT 11.2 Hangs when activating send...or audio track

I can confirm similar, or at least related, behavior. For me, reactivating an inactive audio track hangs PT 11 HD (v 11.2) about 90% of the time. SWOD, force quit, relaunch/reboot. Timeline is...

Re: Pt11.2

PT HD 11.2 and Eucon 3.1.3 are working well here so far. Day 1; two mixes... Smooth sailing... Fingers crossed in hope that tomorrow is as good as today was.

Re: PT11HD on 2011 MacBook Pro

A cost effective solution might be to simply clone your boot drive and have it ready to go in the event that you need to buy a second MBP in a hurry.

I've heard that laptops are not as robust and...

Re: UAD-2 and Pro Tools 11

Same here, very stable, with the exception of the Compare button no longer being functional in the UAD plugin GUIs. Anybody else seeing this?

Re: Parallel Compression, & Sends

It may help for you to think of processing in two ways: series and parallel. Series is where you instantiate (insert) the processor on the actual track. Parallel is where you send (bus) the audio...

Re: No Pro Tools HD 8 on AVID Store???

Hi Danny.... I'm curious why you suggest 8.0.5 for the G5? My main expanded rig is generally very stable with 8.0cs3. I stopped there simply because I use a lot of hardware I/O (64 analog & 64...

Re: PT8 rewriting audio files when reopening *recent* PT8 sessions

PT8 rewriting audio files when reopening *recent* PT8 sessions

I found a thread about PT8 rewriting files created in PT7, but nothing specific to my situation.

I did a couple recalls of sessions from six weeks ago--same Mac OS, same PT 8.0cs3--and the Task...
