Re: Sidelined by CPU Problem on 32GB Mac

Omnisphere does stream from disk but the instruments really arenít that big. Itís a bit of a throwback from when people had less RAM in their computers.

An external USB-C NVMe enclosure would be...

Re: 2020 Mac Pro HDX cable

One of them works, the other two donít and it seems not everyone got an HDX card with three different cables. Thereís the PC one (1x4 pin) and two Mac ones (2x3 pin). The smaller mini 2x3pin one of...

Re: Sonnet M.2 4x4 PCIe Card fan noise or OWC Accelsior

Annoying that was released just a few weeks after I finally got the old fan version!

Fortunately itís very quite. Pretty much inaudible unless you put your head inches from the Mac.

Re: Sidelined by CPU Problem on 32GB Mac

When you say six tracks do you mean you’re running one multitimbral instance of Omnisphere? If so it might be that you’re overloading one core because I’m pretty sure Pro Tools can’t spread the load...

Re: Why do I hear both, guitar sim plugin and clean above it?

Is the amp sim instantiated in Apollo Console so youíre hearing it there and youíre also hearing the clean signal through Pro Tools at the same time?

Re: 2019 Mac Pro in control room

The new Mac Pro is SO quiet HDX fan noise is getting to me. I really don’t like the idea of disabling the HDX fan.

So... I’ve installed Macs Fan Control

Re: Just got my new Mac Pro 2019, 16 Core Review: worth upgrading?

If youíre loading samples off the external SSD it wonít be any faster on a 2019 Mac Pro.

The Aqua computer card will give read speeds of over 3000MB/s with a Samsung Evo 970 m.2. Itís exactly the...

Re: Just got my new Mac Pro 2019, 16 Core Review: worth upgrading?

I really like HDX providing I don't mix native and DSP plug-ins too much. It works fine if you don't keep switching back and forth between the two. I do have quite a few hardware synths/modular/drum...

Re: Just got my new Mac Pro 2019, 16 Core Review: worth upgrading?

Don’t know what VIs you’re using but Kontakt takes a long time to instantiates in Pro Tools, even from super fast storage. An external SSD via USB3 is literally 6 times slower than one fast Samsung...

Re: 2019 Mac Pro in control room

I would say if youíre sensitive to noise floor in your recordings, record/mix very dynamic/acoustic music or ever monitor at low levels then yes, the HDX card might be troubling. Itís no louder in...

Re: 2019 Mac Pro in control room

I can only hear the HDX card in my 2019 MP. I also have a Sonnet m.2 host PCIe card but the fan on it is effectively silent unless you stick your head right by the computer. The OWC Accelsior card...

Re: Just got my new Mac Pro 2019, 16 Core Review: worth upgra

The business manager at my local Apple store is well versed in pro audio. His take on it is that the 16 core is the sweet spot for PT and audio use and he could have tried to flog me something with...

Re: You can now upgrade Mac Pro 7.1 system SSD after the fact through Apple

Nice to have the option but man that’s expensive storage. Stupid Apple Tax.

For the price of 4TB you are really close to 8TB of Samsung NVMe storage on a Somnet PCIe card that is potentially four...

Re: Will HDX get the advertised voice increase or not?

It’s not working for HDX. I’m pretty sure those voice packs add voices tracks to PT Ultimate.

We were promised 384 voices for HDX1 but the required firmware update toasted 15% of the cards I...

Re: Protools 12 - greyed out tracks - but still play

It looks like youíve accidentally switched all tracks to volume view instead of clips? Press and hold option and then change them all back to clips view maybe?

Re: New Mac Pro (7.1)

I’m with Lucien, the W5700X is well worth the money providing you can spare the PCIe slot.

You might want to look at the Sonnet m.2 card
