Re: Ball park price for new i7 build??? thanks!

I did something pretty similar mostly from micro center and it ended up about $700 with tax. The one thing I think should be absolutely clear is that the i7 architecture works fastest with memory in...

Re: just updated to vista, now pro tools does not work

Pro tools does seem like its quite fragile regarding the environment it runs in, and avid seems unable to update it at the speed the marketplace demands. It is a concern to me as well.

Re: just updated to vista, now pro tools does not work

Yes, unfortunately that's how they got to the market first and gained a dominant role, and that habit never changed.

From what I heard, vista was a long time coming with much turmoil in the...

I think we have exact opposite opinions of the reliability of the two operating sytems--not gonna rehash the reasons. Where I work--where another team supports 300 desktops re-iterated their decision...

Re: PT8 CPU Usage

At the very least, it should be noted as part of the approved hardware list.

Re: Partition Question

I normally try and keep the page dataset and system drive on one physical drive, and nothing else--windows requires a page dataset even if you have more ram than it can address. I created a small...

Re: Digidesign to Hire New Software Engineers

I agree with the other poster as to the mundane nature of this. A software company hires coders--good news I would imagine. It does take a while to get productive, though.

I am old enough to have seen that in theaters when it came out. I do remember what you are referring to.

He's not the only one. Its one thing to mention a competitor, but quite another to sit in a vendor forum and essentially engage in a marketing campaign for other daws.

Re: From everyone's experiences, what's the BEST version of Vista to use with PT v8??

I have the same first thought as others--vista leads to more rather than less compatibility issues. But again, look at what is supported--its supposed to be a safe harbor for those who don't want to...

Re: Protools 8 and 64bit, When?? We really need this!!!!!

They would be nuts not to. I think this year, 64 bit is moving into the mainstream. Depending on how they architect the code, it could be lots of work, or it could be setting a few compiler switches...

Re: When will the IE8 issue be fixed!?

Structure free hangs up pro tools on startup. xp with ie8. Not the end of the world, but seems like a silly thing to not get resolved.

Re: Protools LE and the fight of its life?

Better they speak with actions. Like fixing a few of the bugs in the existing version.

Re: Ram and XP Pro

Re: When will the IE8 issue be fixed!?

I did the uninstall of ie8 and it just reverted to ie7 whereby I was able to run windows update.

I do wish avid would get this taken care of, though. Its just silly to have a fatal interaction...

Re: PT8 CPU Usage

Its good to know that avid is working on it. As a software developer, I wonder if anything can be done to streamline the testing process.

Re: Need news 64 bit OS system!

Re: Pro Tools will only use 1GB of my PC's 3GB RAM. Do you know why?

I'm sorry, but that article you linked to was a complete batch of nonesense.

Windows sets aside address space (not memory, but just the numbers that can refer to memory addresses) with a default...
