Re: Upgrading from Pro Tools 10

(1) You can buy a perpetual license still, although AVID seems to be trying to navigate people away from it and toward subscriptions.

Re: Windows 10 system restore deleted my ptx files!

Another vote for a separate, dedicated recording drive. Yes, recording to the system drive might work, but do you really want to take that chance, when a 1tb drive can be had for under 100 bucks?...

Re: PC Build Help

My Asus x99 worked really well. Until I tried their add-on Thunderbolt card. I mean, they said it was Thunderbolt-ready. Didn’t work. So I have an Asus x99 mobo sitting in a box, because I went with...

Re: Main window over 2 screens issue

I have, more than once, had Windows updates overwrite my Matrox drivers with a lousy generic vga driver. It was enough of an annoyance that I have a MATROX driver shortcut on my desktop. Possible...

Re: Sync PT and Other DAWS?

I got 2 separate computers to sync once using nothing but a MIDI connection between the two. Long time ago...Pro Tools 5.xx and SAW Pro.

Re: Purchasing a NEW 27‑inch iMac with Retina 5K display.

Re: Pro Tools not initializing Focusrite USB AISO

Go into Control Panel/Sounds, and make the onboard audio device the Default Playback Device. If Windows grabs your PT interface, Pro Tools can’t initialize it, because it doesn’t like to share. Also...

Really should put in a secondary recording drive instead of recording to the system drive.

Re: Bounce skips the first milliseconds

Re: Windows 10 1809

Windows updates always re-enable my usb power management as well, and will occasionally wipe out my Matrox drivers, and install some crappy generic vga driver. Annoying, but fixable.

Re: Pro Tools 11 HD to Pro Tools 2019 Standard Question

My guess, having just done this from 12.4 HD, with expired plan, is, $999. HD was the more expensive option, and the upgrade path is to pony up the $999 and get Ultimate. I did about 2 weeks ago....

If your interface has a spare pair of inputs, route the MAC output to those inputs.

Magician is, IMHO, worthless, but the data migration software works quite well. Saved my bacon once or twice.

Re: Pro Tools 2019 on Windows
