Re: Fresh PC Build - What do do in BIOS (for Pro Tools) once windows is installed

Study the Gigabyte docs. Have you done a search for your specific motherboard BIOS settings? Check the ram speed settings in BIOS. Most other BIOS tweaks relate to CPU overclocking. Don't overclock....

Re: Fresh PC Build - What do do in BIOS (for Pro Tools) once windows is installed

Take boot drive images as you move along. Acronis or Macrium Reflect are popular choices. Keep notes of what gets changed between images. Also, Gigabyte has a method to backup all your Bios settings....

Re: i9 10920X

To troubleshoot, I'd try testing with some other interface.

Re: i9 10920X

Are you doing a clean install?

+1. For my rigs, I did a clean Win 10 install, with updated/current PTools & all drivers/plugs/etc ---> stable. Takes time but worth it.

Re: 33 day countdown! Time to stick?

200/yr is WAY too much. Win 10/PTools 2020.5 is working pretty well. I'm also considering simply letting my perpetual license lapse, and just running 2020.5 for the foreseeable future. I've got about...

Re: Taylor ES1 or mic?

Use the best mic you can afford. Experiment with placement, but 12th fret is a good place to start. Hi-pass EQ, sometimes a tiny/broad hi-end boost, and a bit of compression & reverb.

Re: Oldest running version of Pro Tool in the world?

Me too! Last year I was asked to recall some old MAC-only-SDII sessions. Much to my surprise, everything booted & worked! My old G4 can boot in OS9 for PTools 5 or OSX for PTools 6. I've often...

Re: Racking a Thunderbolt interface

I've racked non-rackmount gear like this before. Works well for stationary racks.

Re: Split stereo into mono, including playlists?

Assign the stereo track to Bus 1/2. Create a mono aux with input Bus 1, another mono aux with input Bus 2. Switch playlists as needed, mute or process each aux as needed.

Re: Focusrite liquid channel users?!?!

Channels 1/2 of the Focurite LS56 are liquid channels. I have mine set to the Neve 1073 emulation, and do not push the "added harmonics" control very hard. Sounds good!!!

That does sound like good advice to me. But ... here's my own experience.

A year ago, I did a clean install of Windows 10 Pro and PT 2019.6 on 2 rigs. Since then, I've installed each subsequent...
