Re: Processor affinity

We used to have options for "# of Processors" and "CPU Usage Limit" in Playback Engine. When/why did these CPU options go away? Now to achieve this, we need to manually adjust Processor...

Re: Pro Tools CPU Usage

You might benefit from doing the processor affinity switch. See Windows sub forum posts about it.

Re: Room Correction Plugins

I agree. Plus, use great reference monitors that are not too big for the room.

Re: Behringer UMC1820 - Pro Tools 11

Do what Albee said! I use that I/O on a Win10 laptop, and it works perfectly. (It actually sounds really good, by the way.)

Processor affinity

I've read a few posts about manually setting processor affinity. Are most Windows/Pro Tools users here currently doing this? Is it now considered standard practice? Thanks!

Re: Trouble importing mp4 video

Not sure, but it fixed my Quicktime/MP4 issue. Can't remember what my PT error message was, but it might have pointed me to this.

I ran into a similar issue recently. Make sure you have Apple Application Support installed. That's what fixed it for me.

Re: Pro Tools 2020.9 installer failing on Win10 1909

I suppose this makes sense ... however I've successfully installeded the past several upgrades right over-top of the previous install. No issues. (I have not installed .9.) Do the AVID install...

Re: 33 day countdown! Time to stick?

Same here; I decided not to invest the time to learn S1.

I have stopped paying AVID and will run 2020.5 on Windows for the foreseeable future. Vote with your wallet.

Re: 16 inch Macbook Pro - performance?

Depends on your needs. For example, I use a laptop ONLY for remote sound gathering gigs (few tracks, high buffer, few or no plugs, no VIs, no video). For that purpose, even a slow old laptop works....

Re: Disappearing Files

This happened to me the other day. I imported files from the client's flashdrive. I definitely had prefs set to copy on import. Well, it didn't copy on import. Fortunately, I was able to get the...

Re: 33 day countdown! Time to stick?

200/yr is too much. If it were 100, I'd probably renew. Mine will lapse next week, so I'll vote with my wallet & run 2020.5 for the foreseeable future.

Re: Fresh PC Build - What do do in BIOS (for Pro Tools) once windows is installed

Study the Gigabyte docs. Have you done a search for your specific motherboard BIOS settings? Check the ram speed settings in BIOS. Most other BIOS tweaks relate to CPU overclocking. Don't overclock....

Take boot drive images as you move along. Acronis or Macrium Reflect are popular choices. Keep notes of what gets changed between images. Also, Gigabyte has a method to backup all your Bios settings....

Re: i9 10920X

Are you doing a clean install?

+1. For my rigs, I did a clean Win 10 install, with updated/current PTools & all drivers/plugs/etc ---> stable. Takes time but worth it.

Re: 33 day countdown! Time to stick?

200/yr is WAY too much. Win 10/PTools 2020.5 is working pretty well. I'm also considering simply letting my perpetual license lapse, and just running 2020.5 for the foreseeable future. I've got about...

Re: Taylor ES1 or mic?

Use the best mic you can afford. Experiment with placement, but 12th fret is a good place to start. Hi-pass EQ, sometimes a tiny/broad hi-end boost, and a bit of compression & reverb.
