Re: Installing Pro Tools 8 and later on a new Mac

Only just noticed this but here goes.

a) I'm aware that in a G4 they're PATA not SATA but this guy has a G5 so his drive will be SATA.

In my case I had 2 SATA drives in my G4 on a PCI card, a...

Re: New Mac for PT10/11: Budget $1000-1500. Options?

The 2012 Mac Mini Quad systems are actually faster from a raw CPU power point of view than either the Mac Pro you were looking at and the current entry level Mac Pros at 3 x it's price.

All you...

Re: PT 10 w/ MBOX?

I have the Mbox2 Factory myself and the LE to Protools 10 cross-grade in the UK is £348! Online retailers are selling off the LE to PT9 crossgrade for £162 so I'm pretty annoyed about that when I'm...

Re: Mac Mini and PTLE 8

I'd consider getting a used Mac Pro instead!

If you add the cost of the Oxford based Firewire drive you'll need for recording, even building you're own with a case such as the SK-3500 + the cost...

Re: How do I get Pro Tools LE on my new Mac

I had the same problem with my Audiomedia III system when I moved from a Beige G3 to a Quicksilver G4.

Talking Re: Seperate SSD Drive instead of Oxford Chipset

Whatever external drive you get, the controller HAS to be an Oxford one.

They're not too expensive if you don't mind 50Mb/s maximum, you can get a 750Gb Seagate Barraccuda 7200.12 with 8.5ms...

Re: Its time to sue digi/avid????

I find this worrying. I thought my issue with system audio was down to using an Mbox2 on a low spec system and it's simply CPU spikes effecting the Core Audio output.

I know Geekbench isn't any real indication but bearing in mind the...

Re: What will the new hard drive format mean for Pro Tools?

Re: Low PC Memory in Vista

Record to a separate drive from your system

It's a requirement to actually use a second drive for recording and a 7200rpm drive with 10ms or less access time is the minimum specs.

Re: Is this Mac Pro good for top quality PT productions?

That model can be upgraded to the full 32Gb or RAM with a little searching on eBay for about £600.

The newer models of Mac Pro have 3 channel RAM, use VERY expensive RAM to start with and you have...

When will the Mbox 2 Micro include the install DVDs for LE 8.0 in the box?
