Re: Anybody here ever tried mixing on Artist Series Units like they were analog?

While it technical lt will work that way, it kind of defeats the purpose of running a DAW:o I'm an old analog console lover as much as anyone, but I'm not giving up the digital goodness;). As an...

Re: Scaling and GUI issues on win, tips?

I also stick to 1920x1080 here(43" 4K TV over a 27" monitor). I'd love to try the 1440 vertical, but am too cheap to go by screens with that native resolution:o

Re: Ilok or computer?

I'm a bit unclear on the question, so here is my general iLok advice:

Re: Why cant we drop an drag out pots ?

On Windows, selecting the tracks and holding Alt+SHIFT while you mouse-click on one of the track's outputs and change, will do to all selected.

A faster way is to select the tracks and move to a...

Re: how to create more Inserts on Channels & Master Fader?

This is accurate for hardware inserts. I suspect the OP wants to use more than 10 plugins. Plus, a single hardware insert could easily route thru several hardware units:o

Re: Midi 'ghost notes'

I've seen this when I had a keyboard that was connected in both directions(MIDI from the keyboard, into PT and MIDI from PT back to the keyboard). Unplugging the return solved that one. Next, look at...

Re: avid I/O balanced output behavior

Reading the manual is the simple way to learn what works and what doesn't work. The manual is also quite clear on the fact that using the balanced IO in unbalanced mode will damage the unit if you...

Re: Peak meter after fader?

To the OP,
1-Since you are just getting started, the default metering is fine(at least until you learn why you want to switch).
2-Use pre-fade metering except in special circumstances(for most of...

Re: how to create more Inserts on Channels & Master Fader?

Indeed, just run thru an AUX on the way to the master. Having said that, if you need more than 10 inserts on a mix, you're probably not mixing right:o

Re: Alternative to Waves MV2?

Re: Pro Tools master track vs Logic's stereo Out fader?

Re: WTB: Digital ADAT card for Focusrite Octopre Platinum

If your search fails, just grab a Behringer ADA8200(the red box). It sounds as good or better and will give you 8 more outputs as well as the 8 inputs.

Re: Gain Stage transport window meter ?

TRIM goes in the last slot only and I have set it up to -8 on every track that it goes on(using in the last slot prevents the TRIM from affecting other plugins). Obviously, if you add a plugin that...

Re: Gain Stage transport window meter ?

Consider: if you have 30, 40, 50 or more tracks, and all are hitting -3, when they all sum together(at the master bus) the combination can easily hit the red. Since that describes me(I tend to record...

Re: is it possible to connect a quantum 4848 to Control24?

The Quantum should work fine with Pro Tools. Be aware that with any 3rd party interface, you are limited to 32 IO(so the last 16 IO will not appear).

Of course, this assumes you have a compatible...
