Re: yes again tearing my hair out with the Avid online store.

Still no response from Avid.
So annoying and frustrating.
I am trying to give them money.

Does anyone know how to get out of this endless death loop?
Every time I go to purchase anything on the Avid online store I get the following message.

I am in the UK, my shipping and billing are...

Re: Pro Tools Ultimate w/o any card or interface or

Focusrite Red 16 would give you the choice between Thunderbolt 3 or Dante or HDX or Native.
They sound terrific and also give you hardware monitoring.

Re: NMacPro 16 Core or 24 Core

I have the 16 core and it is ridiculously powerful.
I would go with that.

Re: That time of the year ago: unable to renew Ultimate Support Contract

Just FYI, I've been able to do it via a reseller which has ended up costing me more than it would otherwise.

It would be *SO VERY NICE* if Avid could get their act together and have a website that...

That time of the year ago: unable to renew Ultimate Support Contract

Every single year.
EVERY SINGLE YEAR.

This year I am unable to renew a support contract because Avid's POS store says that the currency for my account doesn't match with my locale.

Re: New Mac Pro (7.1)

That looks like it will work but there is no official guidance from Avid or Apple on how to get this working.

Either try it and see (and let us know) but at your own risk, or wait until Avid come...

Re: Ultimate is the only way to have 32+ IN/OUTs?

You can also go Dante via several options from Focusrite- Red interfaces give you 64 channels with HDX.

Re: NAMM new HDX or nothing!!!

I hate power switches on the back of devices.
I bought one of these:

Re: Pro Tools HDX2 working on new Mac Pro

The HDX card fan runs almost silent in the new Mac Pro.
It is undetectable compared to how it used to run in the expansion chassis.
They really sorted out the airflow in the nMP, I guess the HDX...

Re: Pro Tools HDX2 working on new Mac Pro

I’m away from the studio for a few days, I’ll be back on Monday.
I’ll take some proper closeups.
You may need to replace the Avid provided cable if it is different to the one they gave me.

Re: HDX in new Mac Pro/Catalina

They aren't supported yet, but I've got mine working in a 16 core, 160GB RAM, 4TB model.

Which slot did you put yours in?
Mine is in slot 5.

How are you powering the card?

Re: New Mac Pro (7.1)

I’ve filled 2x13 port rackmount hubs with devices and dongles.
One iLok inside isn’t really going to help me.

Re: MTRX-> HDX or MTRX->Dante

Three things to know about the Red line of interfaces.

1. Only the Red 16 Line has matched input/output alignment.
If you buy a Red 8 or Red 4 and use a lot of hardware inserts you will have to...

Re: MTRX-> HDX or MTRX->Dante

I have HDX and Dante integrated pretty well using a Focusrite Red 16 Line.

The advantage of the Red 16 Line over other Dante cabe interfaces is you can monitor some inputs off hardware, so they...

Re: Dock Power Supply?

Sorry to bug you again, can you please give me the power requirements.
Doesn't quite come up in the picture.

I know it is 12vDC, but how many amps/milliamps?

Cheers,

JR

Hi folks,

I've bought a new Avid dock and the vendor didn't put in the power supply with the purchase (which leads me to believe I received a demo or B stock unit.)

Re: 2019.12 Discussion

I considered waiting but I've been waiting for Apple to make a Thunderbolt enabled tower since 2012 so jumped early.

On the whole it has been brilliant.
I've got HDX working on it too.
