Re: Pro Tools 2019.6 (Win 10) starts itself?

Preferences are a Mac style way of an application storing a multitude of settings, many of them typically hidden/non-obvious from users. Pro Tools uses prefs on Macs and PCs. The files frequently get...

Re: Thunderbolt (3) Hub?

Just about anything will work OK. Things you have to watch out for are chaining multiple high-resolution (e.g. 4K/5K Monitors) or high-end NVMe storage on a single Thunderbolt bus/chain. Apple specs...

Re: How to go from Apple TV digital out to MTRX?

Re: Pro Tools won't unload (this is a weird one)

Re: Pro Tools won't unload (this is a weird one)

It’s not unheard of, been many posts on DUC over the years.

One suspect is a bad plugin. (Possibly even one you are not using).

Does it happen with all sessions or just some?

Try trashing...

Re: How to go from Apple TV digital out to MTRX?

Re: PT 2019.6 not clearing memory

Could be a classic sign of a plugin memory leak (which can happen with no session open).

How much of the disk cache is actually used? How large are your sessions? How many/what VIs -- the classic...

Re: MBox2 no sound in DAW but sound in speakers
