Re: 2020.9!

First is a training tool and marketing release. It's not particularly usable for anything outside occasional hobby use or educational. I think it's a great idea but not a release that can be used...

Re: Pro Tools 2020.5 won't launch on Mac mini

Thanks.

I suggested the last version because I know it works and it's not less than a day old.:D

Re: 2020.9!

People that code don't need experience in the field. Do you think SAP is written by accountants and CFOs? Is Solidworks written by mechanical engineers? Simply, no. Software engineering is a...

Re: 2020.9!

I agree that it's not the people slinging code that's the reason for the issues. However those folks don't make product and design calls. They implement what the product managers and product...

Re: 33 day countdown! Time to stick?

It appears that the updates break things but in reality on the major releases Avid seems to be using non standard methods due to the code base or have not implemented changes that Apple has announced...

Re: 33 day countdown! Time to stick?

A lot of that is from the visual media tools as well. In both spaces Avid has a format/workflow lock that makes it more difficult for larger operators to transition. Plus the one person shops need...

Re: Pro Tools 2020.5 won't launch on Mac mini

I have a nearly identical Mini and had some issues at first but here's what I did and do in other situations like this.

As others have said do a clean install using a bootable drive and the combo...

Re: 2020.9!

How does that not include things that broke because Avid couldn't be bothered to replace 32 bit code? Even though they had a nearly three year heads up. Avid has a multi hundred million dollar...

Re: Will PT202x have Midi 2.0?

By the time MIDI 3 rolls out Pro Tools should be just starting to support MIDI 2. :D If one needs MIDI that deep this isn't the tool. The adoption of the new spec will be driven by the samplers and...

Re: Is it safe (enough) to jump from Mojave to Catalina?

Any plugs that don't make the cut to Catalina let alone Big Sur won't be long for the Mac anyway.

I wouldn't change a production machine to Catalina right now.

Re: I tried Pro Tools 2020.5 on MacOS 11 Big Sur

Pro Tools has historically been behind the curve. Been that way for 25 years or so. Avid will support OS 11 at some point. The user base is too deep to discard it. The guys doing more or less big...

Re: 33 day countdown! Time to stick?

Depends on if you're willing to face the learning curve and change your workflow. We've got several composers in house and they use either Live or Logic. Of the 44 show the producers had out before...

Re: QT import and export in Catalina

Re: Time machine, Backblaze affect Pro Tools performance?

Using the Mini for a general computer and a production Pro Tools rig can be a bit of a compromise depending on what you're doing. I've had a current Mini for a while now and even configured in a...

Re: 2020.3 is out

Yeah but it's been that way since the Soundtools/Digi days before Avid swallowed them. In the 90s until today most gigs I'm on are still a few OS and PT versions behind. No matter how many years go...

Re: How noisy is your Mbox 2 Mini?

Thanks for the response but it's not a ground loop. It's higher than 60 cycles, in the upper mids, not quite a pure single tone, but somewhere in the 2-3Khz range. My background is more than 25...

How noisy is your Mbox 2 Mini?

I picked up an Mbox 2 Mini earlier and noticed a background, but fairly loud oscillation from the interface. It didn't happen until I started PT. It's loud enough to be unacceptable to me. It's...
