Re: Pro Tools has become a nightmare (Windows)

I've seen some weird stuff in this latest version on Windows 10. Drag and dropping a copy of a plugin to another track locks up the interface. Interface becomes non responsive. They did get rid of...

Re: Protools 2019.12.0 Installer Checksum issue can't install

Well, then that would explain it. The rest of us peasants have to limp along with 150MBs on our stateside internet plans.

Re: Protools 2019.12.0 Installer Checksum issue can't install

There is something wrong with the throttling on the Avid servers. I've never had so much trouble downloading and I've tried both my account and the Avid link. I'm on 24 hours and it's still...

Re: Pro Tools 2019.6 (Win 10) starts itself?

Re: Pro Tools 2019.6 (Win 10) starts itself?

It's not Ozone 9, although I too had installed it recently. I can fire up Protools, launch no projects and exit. It still comes back up a 2nd time. Conundrum for sure.

Re: Pro Tools 2019.6 (Win 10) starts itself?

Same issue here. Close the project. Close the App. 10 seconds later it restarts. The second time, it stays closed.

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...

Re: Can one midi or instrument track, trigger, multiple instrument tracks simultaneou

Yes. Read up on midi channels. You just assign the midi track to the channels you want fed. Then make sure the VST or AAX instrument is on that channel. I put strings swells behind piano parts in...

Re: HP Z420, what Windows and PT to use for best stability?

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.
