Re: is it possible to import edit list from one sample rate to another?

Could you not just use built-in audio / headphones to do your edits so you don't need to jump through all those hoops?

Re: PT on two screens

It's working as expected for me (PT 20.12 Big Sur) - create and save on two screens opens the next time on two screens.

Two thoughts, but pardon me if they're too obvious:

One is, when you...

Re: Problem Macbook Air 2020 M1/ Apple Thunderbolt Display / Apollo x16 and Protools

Nice to hear the new chip is such a performer. But your Air only has 2 TB ports (and one is for power) so you're trying to use the pass-through ports on each of your pieces? And the X4 only has one...

Re: Stuck in Dark Mode

Also, check again in Prefs > Security & Privacy, under the "General" tab to be sure there is no installer hung up there. And under the "Privacy" tab to be sure ProTools is on the list (and selected)...

Yes thanks, I know this machine will run Catalina and I have installers and even a Time Machine backup of the previous machine. But I'm not having any serious problems so I'm just plowing ahead. If...

Re: Big Sur & Protools 2020.11

Running 2020.12 on Big Sur here because, well, got a new MBPro (Intel 2019) and I'm not doing anything taxing, or critical.

I'll confirm Darryl's "half type in new track naming dialog box" GUI...

Re: Shortcut to turn a clip into a full timeline track

Or ... just go to zero (carefully, use the grid) and put that track in record for one second. Then select that 1-second clip, then "select all" (Command-A on a Mac) and consolidate. This gives you...

Re: Weird tempo/clock issue

Sounds like the session thinks it's running at 48k but something is forcing the system to clock at 44.1. Pitch on imported audio is lower, right? And clicks are slower... Check all the clocks and...

Re: MP3 vs Wav bounce in PT 2020.11

Agreed. Used to be a file size, mail attachment, upload/download problem. But now with Dropbox, WeTransfer, etc, it makes much more sense to stick with wav files - and keep it all in sync!

Re: MP3 vs Wav bounce in PT 2020.11

In my experience (which isn't very deep) encoding to / from mp3 adds a sliver of time at the start of the file. I don't know the technical reason for that but it's why I always ask for some...

Re: session won't play, shows "pause"

Re: Noob question: How do I bring up Mac Built-in Output in my session?

Audacity is a surprisingly useful FREE app which I still use a lot when dealing with mp3s and audio snippets. It is limited though so I understand you wanting to get into a more pro setup.

Re: Noob question: How do I bring up Mac Built-in Output in my session?

How are you getting computer audio into Audacity? You still need something like Loopback or Soundflower to route that built-in audio output to a software input, no?

I have the feeling that not...

I'd never heard of it either but Google seemed to know. (You should try it!)

This is one of those pesky buttons that you might hit by accident and it may even toggle with the "f12" key. My usual...
