Re: Not you again, Mr. -9173

I don't do Time Machine. I do use Carbon Copy Cloner, which is set to back up everything everywhere every night after I've gone to bed. I use CCC's 'safety net' feature to protect me against...

Re: Not you again, Mr. -9173

It's the native system on the 6,1 machine. Sessions do get moved between the two but only in one direction - they're recorded on the studio system and then transferred to the other one at some point...

Re: Not you again, Mr. -9173

Not for ages, Janne. That's kind of the point here. If I had updated anything I'd feel there was a reason for it to behave differently.

Not you again, Mr. -9173

This is maddening. Without changing a single thing about my system - no new plugins, no software updates, nothing new installed and nothing else running on the machine - I'm suddenly having -9173...

Re: Pro Tools, HUI, and Command 8

Maybe. But I prefer the system we have. Yesterday I had a seven-piece jazz outfit doing whole band drop-ins and this isn't unusual for me. We're not working to click so I roll back 6 or 8 bars,...

Re: Pro Tools, HUI, and Command 8

We have large red lights over the door to the live room, both outside in the corridor - so people don't blunder in or start making loud noises during a take - and on the inside, visible throughout...

Re: Pro Tools, HUI, and Command 8

I see, Janne. What a nuisance. I'll have to see if there's another brand of gadget to run the red light which doesn't need HUI protocol.

I must say I have wondered for years why there isn't...

Pro Tools, HUI, and Command 8

The other day I took my Command 8 into the studio and connected it to the HDX system hoping my colleague could use it to work the cue feeds using flip mode.

But we have a gadget attached to the...

Re: Command|8 - I like it!

Well it's all about looks, really... it looks much more snazzy with 'proper' fader caps.

No seriously - I found that the lozenge shaped caps were less precise in that my finger could sort of move...

Re: Fader Resolution Problem w/ Presonus Faderport - PT 2019

I can't reliably get +/- 0.1 either way but in my case it appears to be more to do with the advanced age of the hardware. Individual faders work better or worse than each other or better in some...

Re: Fader Resolution Problem w/ Presonus Faderport - PT 2019

I just did some tests with my Command 8 to see what was the smallest 'wave' I could repeatably make, and got to +/- 0.2dB, with a really steady hand... I realise this is a very different piece of...

I bought a Command 8 cheap with a bad power supply but found it still didn't work even with a new psu - so I solved the problem by buying (yet) another one...

Which is working beautifully. Given...

Re: Pro Tools 2019 slow dialog boxes

You may have a point there. I have D300, and I'm using three displays. I wonder if that's a factor. I'll try removing one when I get a moment.

Pro Tools 2019 slow dialog boxes

This is a problem that's plagued me since I upgraded to 2019 but I've been so busy I've just ignored it. Dialog boxes (and plugin windows) take ages to open.

An extreme example would be when I do...

Re: Missing HEAT!

Yup. I fell for that one. Or something similar I read in Avid documentation at the time. It really did seem as if HEAT was part of Ultimate.

Re: Missing HEAT!

but then that would p*ss off people like me who paid for HEAT (people like me who are already p*ssed off because we upgraded to Ultimate in order to get HEAT and it turns out we didn't need to).

That's as may be but I'm mixing a jazz album where some of the tracks are 15 minutes long. Having done the actual mix, I'm watching the DR meter to check I've got matching average levels in similar...

Re: 2019.8

When I'm sending a mix out to a client, I always bounce to disk in real time and listen to it while it's happening - it's my final check. So for 2019.8 I'd really like Pro Tools to make its mind up...

I've figured it out by myself - or at least found out what was going on.

The trouble-maker is Ozone 8. If I de-active it, everything works as it should. Put any other plug-in in its place and...

Re: HDX vs Native

Just curious - when we discuss HDX versus native are we specifically talking about the HD Native card/box, or also about Pro Tools software in general i.e. with a third-party interface?

I have no...
