Re: Upcoming releases

I remember some posts saying that a stable release is bad business for Avid. At the time, I thought it was a ridiculous thing to say. I haven't had much in the way of issues anyway, but now we are...

Just another thread about renewal. My paid sub. is up soon. I know that there was a recent post of the same nature and the responses, although vague, were very much in favor for going...

Re: Dark mode

If I am running Reaper, it's in the Near Dark theme all the time now. Much more pleasant to use like that.:-)

Re: List of default Pro Tools preferences?

Not sure if it will benefit you in this instance, but an OSX thing that I use sometimes is the key combo command-shift-3. It will throw a screen capture on your desktop. you can then drag it to a...

Pro Tools sale question

Hello all.

I currently have PT 2018.4 with upgrades until November. I was thinking about selling it along with my Apogee Quartet, but don't know how to value it.
What do you guys think about...

Re: No audio from random tracks during playback

Many times, the hard drive tells you before it fails completely. Particularly with spinners. Your experience was just that. It seems to be human nature to ignore the warning. Make a backup of...

Re: Bad usb cable may be the problem

Shortest one that works is the best.
Just like the old saying, if you buy the cheapest one available, you get the cheapest one available.

Re: Keeping Plugins Up To Date - Life After PluginUpdate

I was wondering how many you have, and of those how many do you actually use? Just curious where everyone is at with this.

Re: What You Would Like To See In the Next Release?

I use the Near Dark theme for Reaper almost all the time. Much better for focus.

Re: Should I switch to Windows?

What is your experience with Windows OS? Is the computer dedicated? If you are going to go online or use it for other tasks and such with it I wouldn't use Windows. How much can it affect you if it...

Re: ProTools 12 Ultimate - CPU Overload without playing

If it wasn't for the same stupid issues, year after year, what would we talk about at the DUC?

Anyway, doing the normal things like turning WIFI off, as well as the other optimizations go a long...

Re: Pro Tools Duet stops working randomly

Old thread pickup, but I have had the same or similar issue with my Quartet. I found that the usb cable from your Quartet to the computer is important, and varies in quality. Try a different cable,...

Re: 2018.3 Running Very Well Here.

Disconnecting and disabling WIFI are part of the recommended setup. I can tell you that WIFI in particular will slow down your computer for sure.

With all the spyware/malware and whatever else...

Re: Please vote to split the yearly fee for HD

Selling maintenance along with software and hardware has been around for ever, especially in commercial settings. It's not going to go away. The issue is that $1,000 for a regular person is a lot of...

Re: AVID: One change that would help us like you a lot more.

Agreed that the reinstatement fee seems like bullying.

OTOH, paying for maintenance (usually not needed or used) is nothing new or exclusive to Avid. Many companies have been doing that with both...

Re: Anyone notice 12.81 takes twice as long to load big sessions?

Hello All.

One thing I suggest from time to time is consider resetting the PRAM and possibly the SMC on macs with the weird issues. For me, it makes a difference on speed. Bootup, internet page...

Re: iLok cap/cover

Hmmm, don't recall receiving a black cover. If I did, it's long lost. If it was, to me it's just another example of why the darn thing is better attached.

iLok cap/cover

One thing I do with my Ilok is use the plastic end from a HDMI cable as a cover. It's really a poor design for something that is required to be so mobile. Who knows what pocket lint and computer bag...
