Re: Avid: new HW?? HDX 8 years old!!!

Surely a hybrid mix engine has to be on the cards (haha) for squeezing some more life out of HDX. I had heard some murmurings to that end.

Re: Help with new HDX card etc.

Re: New Mac Pro (7.1)

Is anybody driving a 4K monitor with the new Mac Pro and the stock RX580, and can comment on the performance?

Re: MTRX Mono SUM function for DADmom question

Yeah, I basically set mine up so pink noise at -20dBFS = 77dB(C)SPL with DADman at 0dB (REF). I can still get blasted listening to Spotify though!

Re: MTRX Mono SUM function for DADmom question

I have trims in the monitor profile so that REF won't blast me. -24dB in my case.

Re: Can't get 64 outputs from HDX1

Reading the above I was like, surely something is wrong. But when I created a 96k session on my system (also HDX1) the mixer got chewed up very quickly. (I only have 48 I/O so it didn't exhaust it,...

Re: HDX: Mixing SSL Deltalink with HD I/O Interfaces

The latencies may not match so, at the very least, you probably don't want to be doing things in parallel (e.g. compression) mixed across interfaces. The interface provides the clock. If you are...

Re: New Mac Pro (7.1)

I haven’t watched the video but it seems odd HDX can only handle 1/34th the Boom count as Native? What am I missing?

Edit: voices.

Re: New Mac Pro (7.1)

Ah, rack rail adapters may save the day if I want to use the supplied rack rails. If anyone on this thread receives a rack Mac Pro, would be great to know the minimum length of the rails.
