Re: Need some HDX upgrade advice

I tried an Intel i210 PCIe card in a MacPro5,1, was not recognised as an AVB interface under macOS. Maybe a card with a BCM57762 chipset (the one used Apple's Thunderbolt to Ethernet adapter) would...

Re: Any Carbon users who were using UAD Apollo before?

Hah! I'm sure there's someone still using DECnet somewhere!



I'm going to punt that they are using the default presentation time offset of 2ms, because they can't change CoreAudio and, indeed,...

Re: Any Carbon users who were using UAD Apollo before?

Great comments – just to respond to a few:



AVB operates at Layer 2 so does not go through the IP stack. The default latency (presentation time offset) specified by the AVB spec is 2ms for...

Re: Avid HDX driver

Also, can you see the HDX card listed (as Other multimedia) from System Information -> PCI?

Re: Stopping Pro Tools from installing Avid AAX plugins

You're going to have to do this each time you update Pro Tools of course :(

Re: Carbon 1 week in use

Soft synths in record mode have their latency constrained by the buffer size, even on HDX. I am what Carbon’s additional latency with AVB is (vs, say, HD Native), and whether the presentation time...

Re: Offline Bounce issues with HDX

It's been pretty reliable for me, also on a 2019 Mac Pro with HDX.

Re: Mac Pro 4,1 (FW 5,1) with more than one HDX card?

Correct. They can look visually a bit different (from memory some have the Avid logo, others don't). But they're the same inside.

Re: What is the Hybrid Engine?

Have you tested that mixes with greater than 20 tracks null over multiple passes with the same mix engine? i.e. there's not a plugin that is non-deterministic in the path? You've got me curious to...

Re: What is the Hybrid Engine?

The mix bus is 64-bit floating point on both. There really should be no difference.



I imagine the card will still need to run the mix engine for tracks that are routed through DSP (otherwise...

Re: Clocking errors on Pro Tools Carbon

How are you distributing clock from the Carbon to the Midas? ADAT or word-clock? Have you tried making the...

Re: Suggestions on which order interfaces should be connected

The Grimm clocking paper (https://www.grimmaudio.com/site/assets/files/1088/pll_and_clocking.pdf) is good for the details but, I would just use the internal clock of your primary HD I/O interface to...

Re: Using buildings network for talkback and foldback?

Yeah, it's a good solution if the building has existing IP/PoE infrastructure (particularly as Dante is plug-and-play QoS-wise with most recent switches, because it uses the same DSCPs as VoIP). If...

The Dante AVIO adapters might be useful.

Re: Using Carbon with Avid Sync HD?

Not possible unfortunately. The SYNC cannot be connected to Carbon (no DigiSerial port) and, whilst it can be used as a standalone device, the Variable Speed Offset is not accessible from the front...

Re: Anyone tried Protools on an M1 mac yet?

There's no native ARM support in Pro Tools yet. So, no mixed mode (or kernel driver support for HDX). Perhaps Avid's transition story will allow running Intel AAX plugins out-of-process on a native...

Re: Anyone tried Protools on an M1 mac yet?

That's normal, that happens on my Mac Pro. HDX requires a kernel extension and this will need to be native Apple Silicon (even if the application continues to be translated by Rosetta).

Re: Time for a new machine?

This is a pain, yes you need the original GPU in there to upgrade the firmware, before you can upgrade to Mojave (which ironically has better support for the newer AMD GPUs). Perhaps you can borrow...

Re: carbon hardware setting in PT

The Test button in Audio MIDI Setup does send pink noise to the selected speaker so, this is expected behaviour, definitely want to ensure the volume is down in order to protect your ears!

Re: What is frame edge sync?

You wouldn't have had it unless you were using a SYNC HD as (audio) clock master, locked to the same (video) reference as your video output device.
