Re: Purchasing a NEW 27‑inch iMac with Retina 5K display.

I am auditioning the same i9 1TB SSD 580X iMac (note the Stock 8G of RAM is a real limit for testing any video rendering). The CPU power is fabulous. The 580X is fine for audio and light video work....

Re: ProTools price adjustments from July 1st.

Started PT at V4 in 1998. For me the features and improvements vs the cost of renewals over the last few years is just not worth it anymore. I will settle on a 2019 or 2020.x before next March (when...

Re: When will AVID release a series of AllInOne HDX Audio Interfaces?

I believe the higher end of the "bedroom market" has always been much larger than threads like this imply. Apollo came out many years ago. If it would have been answered with simply including enough...

Re: Best Thunderbolt Interface?

For a straight no DSP - use the DAW and Native plugins only - the Quantum shows very good latency figures - 1.9ms RTL - 44.1kHz 32 Buffer. Although this is a very good basically best in class type...

I am not soloing the Main Track I am comping. In this particular case I only have a stereo solo guitar piece (fingerstyle). There is no indication of what is or isn't...

Re: Playlist view: Key command for turning all Solos off ?

Nope - playlist view. Solo a playlist. No "S" lights up in the main window. If Solo followed the cursor in playlist view that would help but it doesn't work that way either. Fools me all the time...

Playlist view: Key command for turning all Solos off ?

When comping I often don't have the cursor on a soloed take. Is there a quick key command to globally turn off all solos?

Re: Building a silent HD or HDX system?

When I had HDN - I was using a 2013 6 core MP and AVID i/o (that system was sold ~1.5 years ago). I always recorded at 96kHz, 64 buffer and in general there was never any issue with CPU unless some...

Re: iMac Pro Customization Options - Thoughts?

Intel looks more right in this case.

Re: AAX DSP plugin latency

Thank you :-)

McDsp was also around 34 samples per plugin but interestingly - with their new rack thing I believe I remember trying 3 things in the rack and it still being 34 samples.

Re: HDX and HD 44.1 and 48k in and out latency?

HDX is always a good solution for controlled latency and large i/o count. It will lock you into AAX DSP plugins for tracking mostly and that is a box that will not get much bigger (IMO) going...

Re: HDX card fan

When I had HDX I made a DIY ISO-Box for the Sonnet Echo III-D and the HDX card. Even with small loads HDX fan on ~5 minutes in and never turns off. Even the Sonnet chassis alone was too much for me.
