Re: Input Channels Stuck in Pre-Fader Metering

Re: If your into API....

If you want the API sound on a budget, check out Five Fish Audio and their X-12 preamp. It nails the API 312 preamp sound(at least with the discrete op-amp option).

Re: mono -> stereo. How to do it in PT?

Duplicating a mono track does not make it stereo. It makes dual mono and will not sound any different than a single mono track(except louder when the 2 identical signals combine). Its still down to...

Re: Hardware inserts Pro Tools

If you(the OP) are going to dig into cabling, then you might leave 1 thru 4(or 1 thru 6 if you are planning for 5.1) as your main outs and setup higher-numbered IO for hardware inserts:o

Re: Maximum Number of Aux Tracks already exist for the current Protools Configuration

Hmmm, this should not be happening(unless you have a boatload of AUX tracks). Not sure this will help, but open Setup>IO and select the BUS tab. On this window, try adding a few dozen new bus paths...

Re: Scaling and GUI issues on win, tips?

I also stick to 1920x1080 here(43" 4K TV over a 27" monitor). I'd love to try the 1440 vertical, but am too cheap to go by screens with that native resolution:o

Re: Why cant we drop an drag out pots ?

On Windows, selecting the tracks and holding Alt+SHIFT while you mouse-click on one of the track's outputs and change, will do to all selected.

Re: how to create more Inserts on Channels & Master Fader?

This is accurate for hardware inserts. I suspect the OP wants to use more than 10 plugins. Plus, a single hardware insert could easily route thru several hardware units:o

Re: how to create more Inserts on Channels & Master Fader?

Indeed, just run thru an AUX on the way to the master. Having said that, if you need more than 10 inserts on a mix, you're probably not mixing right:o
