Re: Pro Tools 2019 on Windows

All good on the Western Front (LA). The playback issues I was having were related to a card not seated in the Computer. Once I pushed it in, all good. Overall, I've had no problems on the Windows...

Unless someone has your exact MB and interface, which could happen, it's hard to say what your experience or software versions will provide in terms of stability.

Re: .midname files won't load on MIDI tracks

I use midnam files fundamentally for exposing patch names from hardware based midi devices i.e reverbs, delays and synths. The normal behavior is to open on the instrument track for the device I need...

Re: Can someone please explain this plugin window .. ?

Not so unlikely if he came to Protools after he installed the plugins in another DAW. He might find it easier just to use that which is already installed. But I agree it's easy to install the AAX...

Re: Can someone please explain this plugin window .. ?

He does a lot of reviews and has multiple DAWs running. Likely he installed the VST versions of the software and didn't get around to installing the AAX versions. You would need the Blue Cat...

Re: Pro Tools won't shutdown

I'm sorry......Windows 7? Like 11 year old Windows 7?

Update the OS and save us all the need to try and help someone running a modern version of Protools on an almost antiquated OS. Seriously.

Re: Made the switch from Sonar to PT, some questions.

Re: When I open PT it starts buzzing

Make sure your Focusrite and your computer are on the same wall socket. Otherwise you can get buzzing in a poorly wired home. I have this problem.

Re: lexicon mx 300 + ufx spdif connections"

When you say I inferred plugins as "below-par is something I did not say. Here are my actual words again.

"not as defined as they fade" "in certain types of music "

I stand by that.

Re: Avid Artist series - Then and Now

Running Artist Control and on Eucon 3.6. It works really well here and the latency has definitely improved for the better under the current release. I'm on Win 10 as well.

Re: add emotion to vocal tracks

Side chain the vocal through a distortion unit. Add in as needed. It will sound like the singer is pushing the mic.
