Re: PTLE 6.4 sessions opened in modern PT Express

Thanks for the response. So would it be safe to say that DVerb, compression and EQ should all be substantially similar in PT Express and the sessions with those plugins should open up and sound...

PTLE 6.4 sessions opened in modern PT Express

I posted this last week in the legacy section, but I realize it's really a question for folks who use newer PT software versions, along with the occasional use of older sessions.

From LE 6.4 to Express 10?

Wow, been years since I've been here (check out my signature--needless to say, I'm no longer using OS 10.3.) I was active in this form back at the turn of the century! So now, three kids and some...

Re: I'm back, and looking for advice on 8.0 vs. 6.4

What I'm dying for is an easy way to lay down relatively simple drum tracks without hiring a drummer. Does 8 out of the box include drums either as an MIDI instrument or loops? And what about...

I'm back, and looking for advice on 8.0 vs. 6.4

Hey folks, I'm a long, long, LONG time user of the DUC but have been AWOL for a few years. The short of it is that I had two kids and the dust has been gathering on my PT rig ever since. But this...

Re: 001 dinosaur user here...CPU issues.

MartinC, I did some of my best writing/recording on a BWG3/350 with an 001 running OS 8.6. Reading these forums will certainly tempt you to buy, buy and buy more stuff. But you have the gear to...

Re: I\'M ABOUT TO LOSE MY MIND.

I have long been against using CPU upgrades in Macs. This is pretty much a textbook reason why. You never know if a problem is because of the CPU or something else, and figuring it out is...

Re: Partitioning a 160 G FW HD

I don't see the point if it will be 100% for audio. The days of partitioning for peformance and maintenance are pretty much over. I might be tempted to make a small partition as a backup system...

Re: USB/Firewire card for 9600?? - Please Help!

OK, skyevox1, point well taken. If you know of someone using a 9600 with the Mbox, I'd find out EXACTLY what card they are using and buy it, even if it has to be purchased from eBay. With a setup...

Re: USB/Firewire card for 9600?? - Please Help!

Honestly, the 9600 is not old, it is ancient. I'm not trying to be a jerk, but the best firewire card you could buy costs $469 and it is called the Mac mini. Serioulsy, I'm just not sure you'd be...

Re: can anyone help a semi-newbie configure their Mac?

Let's get more specific here. What, exactly, are the model numbers of your HD's? Find out in OSX "About this Mac". It is in "More Info" then the ATA section under Hardware. 120GB is not too big,...

Re: can anyone help a semi-newbie configure their Mac?

Good idea about initializing the drives. Use the 5400RPM drive as a backup (it is not 4200RPM unless it is a notebook drive or a REALLY old IDE drive). Use the smallest of the 7200RPM drives as the...

Re: Worth tweaking the mini mac????

How about this...take out the RAM and sell the one you have on eBay and then buy a 1.42Ghz Mac mini. You'll save at least a few hours in time that you can spend on recording. You spent a grand plus...

Re: PT 6.7 locking up due to faulty RAM???

This sounds very, very much like bad memory. There are utilities like techtool, but they are of limited value, although your case seems so extreme that software probably would detect an error. You...

Re: Lexicon MPX 550 vs Kurzweil rumour

I agree their piano sounds are excellent. I have the PC2R and love it. I also have the Yamaha S90 synth and P90 piano. Both of those are pretty ass-kicking as well. The S90 has the best keybed...

Re: Lexicon MPX 550 vs Kurzweil rumour

FWIW, Kurzweil has been one of those companies, like Apple, who is always about to die. But they keep on going. I bought a K1000se back in 1989 and a few years later they got bought by Young Chang....

Re: Latency... Even with a Mixer?

I don't have the Mbox so I'm not sure about that. But if you monitor through your mixer, there should be no latency of the source you are recording.
