Re: Clip Gain Level Info?

Right click on the Clip -> Clip Gain -> Show Clip Gain Line

Gives you a Clip Gain automation line that you can add breakpoints on and adjust sections of a clip without adding edits.

Re: In Response to Pro Tools HD 10 Feedback

Max-

Thanks for continuing to respond to our questions and concerns. I would like to see the PT9HD to PT10HD software upgrade cost credited against the TDM-HDX hardware exchange cost.

Re: LKFS thoughts...Dolby Media Meter 2

I find I have to go into Settings and re-select my 5.1 track layout for it to pass audio cleanly. It's better not to monitor or layback (!) through the plug. Put it on an Aux track that is assigned...

Re: Average Audio Peaks

Actually, -17dBFS for peaks with a -24LKFS seems low to me. I haven't seen a spec with peak limits below -10dBFS.

Re: Dolby LM100 and Discovery deliverables

I know, I was expecting the standard -27 as well, which I've mixed to for surround broadcast and up-fronts for DCI. This is the spec sheet for "On-Air Marketing and Promotions" and those are the...

Re: Euphonix 5-MC user feedbacks

Just installed it yesterday on our System5 and I'm loving it so far for the spots I've mixed with it.

Having real faders and knobs for every track is a quantum leap above the MC Control/MC Mix...

Re: Dolby LM100 and Discovery deliverables

I'm doing a spot for Discovery using the DMM2 and looking at their Program Dialog Levels spec; it calls for short term dialog between -22 and -32 and long term between -23 and -28. Since it calls...

Re: Multiple Sound Source Talk Show Style Mix

True, but that's the easiest way to explain Dugans quickly. For the record, the dB reduction numbers I mentioned were also just examples.

Maybe Lectro? I remember Mr Dugan telling me about...

Re: PT8 Sessions w/Double-Bussing not opening properly in PT9

Can anyone else check this?

Create a session in PT8, double-buss (ctrl-click on the output) a few tracks, then import that session into PT9. Do the tracks stay double-bussed?

This is PT...

Re: Multiple Sound Source Talk Show Style Mix

Yeah, I can see why.

I've only used the Dugan units and they've been great. Sure licensed the algorithm from Dan a while ago and had a similar device.

Re: Multiple Sound Source Talk Show Style Mix

This is true, but at least for every mic that crosses the threshold they lower all the mics enough to keep the noise floor relatively constant. For example:

If one mic is above the threshold,...

PT8 Sessions w/Double-Bussing not opening properly in PT9

I've got a PT8 session template that has a number of Auxes that are double- or tripled- bussed to various other physical I/O and internal busses. When I create a new session in PT9 and import tracks...

Re: Perhaps a stupid Euphonix / HUI question

The 'Auto-bank to selected track' option in EuControl used to do this early on but was broken in an update and never fixed. Try shift-ctrl clicking on the track name in PT. This sets that track as...

Re: Master Bus Compressor fro TV series opinion?

Currently using McDSP ML4000 for limiting and multi-band if needed. The metering for gain-reduction isn't all that informative, just use your ears.

H.G., belated thanks for the quick reply.
Your answer was pretty much what I thought it would be; maybe some future version of eMix will be able to handle more sophisticated patching presets.

Re: Automated Scripting For 15,000 Bounces Of One Song

ProTools isn't directly scriptable. You may be able to do this with Quickeys.
I don't think Logic is scriptable. Reaper has ReaScript, but I'm not familiar with it's capabilities.
