Re: MTRX Studio, Logic, Live and Pro Tools?

Nice location for a second studio!

Yeah thatís a plus for the Focusrite Red interfaces. I forgot they also have Thunderbolt for native use. Iíll bear that in mind.

Re: MTRX Studio, Logic, Live and Pro Tools?

Thanks James.

The prices of I/O expansion for the MTRX are insane so only considering the Studio version.

I’ve gone back in the box so don’t need I/O for inserts, just inputs for hardware...

Re: MTRX Studio, Logic, Live and Pro Tools?

The limitations of using it in Live when Live is the device not the host put me off a bit but at the moment Iím leaning towards Logic.

Thanks Luke

How are you finding the fan noise of the Focusrite units, especially the Red 16Line? Donít have the luxury of a machine room here.

Re: MTRX Studio, Logic, Live and Pro Tools?

Thanks Guys.

Luke, I’m a little wary of Rewire. Propellerhead seem to have passed it on to another company I’ve never heard of and whose website was down this morning. Plus what if Avid dropped...

Re: 2019 Mac Pro in control room

It’s a definite improvement but not a complete fix. The HDX fan is coming on far less frequently rather than all the time. It happens on a really hot day but we don’t get many of those here in North...

MTRX Studio, Logic, Live and Pro Tools?

Iíve come to the end of the road with NI Maschine. I liked it because it gave some of the functionality of Abelton Live within Pro Tools. But itís become unreliable. Latest issue amongst too many -...

Re: Questions for those with an MTRX + outboard.

Thatís a LOT of stages of AD/DA to be passing through in your example above. Iím counting six excluding monitoring.

Have you seen the Flock Audio Patch?

Re: SSD Apple Raid/ softraid

The only reason to split the SFX drive to a second volume would be organisational in my opinion, there wouldnít be a performance benefit.

I looked into chunk size when I set up my Sonnet m.2 card...

Re: SSD Apple Raid/ softraid

Forgot to mention.

Your plan to split the second OWC card into two volumes... personally Iíd format it as one 8TB drive to maximise speed for sample streaming.

Re: SSD Apple Raid/ softraid

Re: Sidelined by CPU Problem on 32GB Mac

Omnisphere does stream from disk but the instruments really arenít that big. Itís a bit of a throwback from when people had less RAM in their computers.

An external USB-C NVMe enclosure would be...

Re: 2020 Mac Pro HDX cable

One of them works, the other two donít and it seems not everyone got an HDX card with three different cables. Thereís the PC one (1x4 pin) and two Mac ones (2x3 pin). The smaller mini 2x3pin one of...

Re: Sonnet M.2 4x4 PCIe Card fan noise or OWC Accelsior

Annoying that was released just a few weeks after I finally got the old fan version!

Fortunately itís very quite. Pretty much inaudible unless you put your head inches from the Mac.

Re: Sidelined by CPU Problem on 32GB Mac

When you say six tracks do you mean you’re running one multitimbral instance of Omnisphere? If so it might be that you’re overloading one core because I’m pretty sure Pro Tools can’t spread the load...

Re: Why do I hear both, guitar sim plugin and clean above it?

Is the amp sim instantiated in Apollo Console so youíre hearing it there and youíre also hearing the clean signal through Pro Tools at the same time?

Re: 2019 Mac Pro in control room

The new Mac Pro is SO quiet HDX fan noise is getting to me. I really don’t like the idea of disabling the HDX fan.

So... I’ve installed Macs Fan Control

Re: Just got my new Mac Pro 2019, 16 Core Review: worth upgrading?

If youíre loading samples off the external SSD it wonít be any faster on a 2019 Mac Pro.

Re: Just got my new Mac Pro 2019, 16 Core Review: worth upgrading?

I really like HDX providing I don't mix native and DSP plug-ins too much. It works fine if you don't keep switching back and forth between the two. I do have quite a few hardware synths/modular/drum...

Re: Just got my new Mac Pro 2019, 16 Core Review: worth upgrading?

Don’t know what VIs you’re using but Kontakt takes a long time to instantiates in Pro Tools, even from super fast storage. An external SSD via USB3 is literally 6 times slower than one fast Samsung...

Re: 2019 Mac Pro in control room

Re: 2019 Mac Pro in control room

Re: Just got my new Mac Pro 2019, 16 Core Review: worth upgra

Re: You can now upgrade Mac Pro 7.1 system SSD after the fact through Apple

Nice to have the option but man that’s expensive storage. Stupid Apple Tax.

For the price of 4TB you are really close to 8TB of Samsung NVMe storage on a Somnet PCIe card that is potentially four...
