Re: Frustrating Pro Tools Performance on a Nuclear Submarine System

Although the New ARM Mac mini has shown some impressive performance and several folks have been able to run Protools on it. It is still official not certified due to the following:

1. Big Sur has...

Re: Dark Theme in Pro Tools 2020.11

I also don't think Avid is inclined to make dark mode better. For some reason, the team determined that what they delivered was exactly what they intended for dark mode. Having said that,...

Re: Older version blocking install

At this point, I would try backing up your computer first and then do a clean install by formatting the drive, installing the operating system, and installing Protools. It is the best way to ensure...

Re: Recommendation for a 5,1 user

I agree that for Protools, stay away from the M1 based Apples, other than for experimenting purposes and self education. I was suggesting the OP can get one of the M1 models for day to day...

Lessons learned:

1. Always backup your system before upgrading
2. It is a good idea to keep a copy of older versions of Protools installers

Re: inputs inactive

Protools likes exclusive usage of the audio device. In other words, it does not like to share audio devices. Since I assume the Apollo Solo is normally available and not used buy Windows system...

Re: inputs inactive

My first thought is that your interface, Apollo Solo, is losing communications with your PC. Try replacing your USB cable. Also ensure that power saving does not shut down the USB ports. By...

Re: Recommendation for a 5,1 user

It sounds like you are pretty heavily invested into your Mac Pro system for Protools and the cost to replace it will be considerable. I would try to get the most out of it while it is still working....

Re: Can't add audio to track

I realize that the OP is on W10 20H2, so the 16GB RAM minimum may be an issue. The same requirement is also stated for Mac OS X, but I am able to run Protools on a spare machine with only 8GB RAM,...

Re: hidden tracks intermittently visible when launching projects

I've seen the hidden tracks flash for a moment and then disappear (hidden). So I figured it was just during the loading process. If the OP is saying that the hidden tracks stay visible after...

Re: Ultimate upgrade from perpetual

As suggested above, the wisest way is to get the trial for Protools Ultimate. This allows you to verify that it works with your hardware to support your 5.1 mix and possibly allow you to finish the...

Re: Upgrade Digi 003 rack?

Just out of curiosity, are you plugging the electric guitar into one of the 1/4" DI inputs on channel 1-4, or one of the the 1/4" line in for channel 5-8? When you use the Tascam 8P, is it connected...

Re: Core Audio Driver

Yup. I was confused. I thought you were talking about "Core Audio" which is from Apple. Thanks for clarifying that you were referring to "Avid Core Audio Driver" which is from Avid. Keep us...

Re: Anyone tried Protools on an M1 mac yet?

That's what I was thinking too. However I could imagine having 16-32 GB RAM built onto the processor package to do the initial heavy lifting and then allow 2-8 slots of slightly slower level 2...

Re: Core Audio Driver

I'm confused. The Core Audio Driver is part of Apple's Operation System and Logic is an Apple product. Why would previous versions of Logic be in your Avid account? If Core Audio stopped working...

Re: Anyone tried Protools on an M1 mac yet?

Much respect. I think people are just a little bent out of shape when you call their machine that they do use for making music and money a "toy." It is a different tool for different tasks, just as...

Re: PT says: "Install more RAM." ??

I'm pretty sure you meant "Physical RAM" instead of "Psysical RAM" (I'm just teasing you). Take a look at this YouTube video that talks about this issue. It might help.

Re: Anyone tried Protools on an M1 mac yet?

Perhaps if your are comparing it to a 384 GB Mac Pro with a 28 core processor, but I'm comparing it to my 16 GB MacBook Pro with a 4-core I7 and it gives it a run for the money. Look, I agree the M1...

Re: Upgrade Digi 003 rack?

If you've ruled out everything I mentioned above (guitar, pickups, cable length, pedals, buffers, and amps) and you really suspect the 003 as the culprit for your bad tone and hum, you might consider...

Re: Upgrade Digi 003 rack?

First, I would check if your sound from you guitar is fine (yes I read that you have a quality guitar). Is there hum when you play through a guitar amp? If your guitar has single coil pickups, that...

Re: How is Protools running on your 16GB MacBook Pro?
