Re: MacOS How to Stop Application Manager from Automatically Starting

Don’t know about PT First, but with PT (full version) and PT HD, I go to the Applications folder (Mac) open the Avid folder, find Application Manager and drag it to the trash. If this isn’t possible...

Re: Length of MIDI notes makes no sense

I wonder if maybe your session has the input quantize setting checked. To see, look at Event > Event Operations > Input Quantize. Some of the notes in your pic appear to be quantized, but others...

Re: Sending Session File (MIDI)

I’d simply attach the session file to your email. It contains the midi data. Alternatively, check nothing in the Save Copy In window.

Re: Having trouble determining this tempo

If the goal is simply to increase the tempo, the “actual” tempo doesn’t matter, just increase the tempo to taste. The tempo will matter, of course, if you want to track with a metronome. But even...

Re: Pickup Bar

My personal preference is to start on beat 4 of measure 1 or 2. This way I have some roll in time built into the session, which is convenient for tracking with a metronome and for printing or...

Re: MIDI notes still there after separating and deleting part of clip

I’m also getting a funny note or three at the start of clip after copy-paste. The notes won’t be deleted until you change the position of the clip start.

Re: Jean-Michel Jarre and the Schmidt Synth

Did you notice how casually one may lean on the Schmidt with ones elbow? Can’t do that with any VI. [emoji57]

Re: MIDI notes still there after separating and deleting part of clip

Similar thing happened to me just this evening. I selected the middle of a long midi clip, and deleted. The clip outlines disappeared, but the midi notes remained. After several tries I ended up...

Re: Soundtoys on sale

Their trade-in option is cool indeed, so I jumped in for the collection for $95, including the little plate.

Re: Creating space/depth

To have the finest control of reverb plugins, be sure to use them bussed from the vocal track sends to auxes with D-verb instantiated. This way you can dial in your church reverb and also see if you...

Re: SSD4 OH and Room issue?

Just from memory, I recall that the SSD mixer has auxes on each individual channel for OH and Room. If your hat is too hot, send less of it from the hat channel to the OH or Room.

Re: can i import korg styles to pro tools 12?

Hi Keith, I know almost nothing about Korg styles. Are you able to solo the elements separately? Such as drumbeat, bass, etc? If so, you could record audio from the Korg, then convert the audio to...

Re: Preview AudioSuite plugins on a region while hearing other tracks?

Re: Detach midi editor

I rarely use the docked midi window, and as tonwurm described, the separate midi window opens when I double click a midi clip.

Re: Detach midi editor

You're referring to the docked MIDI window that is attached to the Edit window? Look right above the solo and mute (S - M) buttons in the docked MIDI window. Do you see two white arrows, one pointing...

Re: Pro Tools 11.3 Demo Question

Try pulling down the fader of the record-armed track. This way you will hear less of the latency from PT, and more of the direct signal from your Focusrite.

Re: What happens to session after subscription?

Hello lobabe,
The session that you create in PT is sort of forever. I recently opened a PT 5.1 session file that I created many years ago in PT 12.7. Obviously, you need some version of PT in order...

Re: Always Calculating Waverform Overviews

From Avid's PT 12.8 "What's New" doc, p. 36-37.

(Both settings are HD-only, so it probably won't help the OP. I read these notes for the first time today and haven't experimented with either of...
