Re: Sonnet M.2 4x4 PCIe Card fan noise or OWC Accelsior

Annoying that was released just a few weeks after I finally got the old fan version!

Fortunately it’s very quite. Pretty much inaudible unless you put your head inches from the Mac.

Re: Sidelined by CPU Problem on 32GB Mac

When you say six tracks do you mean you’re running one multitimbral instance of Omnisphere? If so it might be that you’re overloading one core because I’m pretty sure Pro Tools can’t spread the load...

Re: Why do I hear both, guitar sim plugin and clean above it?

Is the amp sim instantiated in Apollo Console so you’re hearing it there and you’re also hearing the clean signal through Pro Tools at the same time?

Re: 2019 Mac Pro in control room

The new Mac Pro is SO quiet HDX fan noise is getting to me. I really don’t like the idea of disabling the HDX fan.

So... I’ve installed Macs Fan Control

Re: Just got my new Mac Pro 2019, 16 Core Review: worth upgrading?

If you’re loading samples off the external SSD it won’t be any faster on a 2019 Mac Pro.

The Aqua computer card will give read speeds of over 3000MB/s with a Samsung Evo 970 m.2. It’s exactly the...

Re: Just got my new Mac Pro 2019, 16 Core Review: worth upgrading?

I really like HDX providing I don't mix native and DSP plug-ins too much. It works fine if you don't keep switching back and forth between the two. I do have quite a few hardware synths/modular/drum...

Re: Just got my new Mac Pro 2019, 16 Core Review: worth upgrading?

Don’t know what VIs you’re using but Kontakt takes a long time to instantiates in Pro Tools, even from super fast storage. An external SSD via USB3 is literally 6 times slower than one fast Samsung...

Re: 2019 Mac Pro in control room

I would say if you’re sensitive to noise floor in your recordings, record/mix very dynamic/acoustic music or ever monitor at low levels then yes, the HDX card might be troubling. It’s no louder in...

Re: 2019 Mac Pro in control room

I can only hear the HDX card in my 2019 MP. I also have a Sonnet m.2 host PCIe card but the fan on it is effectively silent unless you stick your head right by the computer. The OWC Accelsior card...

Re: Just got my new Mac Pro 2019, 16 Core Review: worth upgra

The business manager at my local Apple store is well versed in pro audio. His take on it is that the 16 core is the sweet spot for PT and audio use and he could have tried to flog me something with...

Re: You can now upgrade Mac Pro 7.1 system SSD after the fact through Apple

Nice to have the option but man that’s expensive storage. Stupid Apple Tax.

For the price of 4TB you are really close to 8TB of Samsung NVMe storage on a Somnet PCIe card that is potentially four...

Re: Kontakt 6 on Pro Tools 9

Kontakt 6 is an AAX plug-in so won’t work in Pro Tools 9 I’m afraid.

Re: Will HDX get the advertised voice increase or not?

It’s not working for HDX. I’m pretty sure those voice packs add voices tracks to PT Ultimate.

We were promised 384 voices for HDX1 but the required firmware update toasted 15% of the cards I...

Re: Protools 12 - greyed out tracks - but still play

It looks like you’ve accidentally switched all tracks to volume view instead of clips? Press and hold option and then change them all back to clips view maybe?

Re: New Mac Pro (7.1)

I’m with Lucien, the W5700X is well worth the money providing you can spare the PCIe slot.

You might want to look at the Sonnet m.2 card

Re: New Mac Pro (7.1)

Pretty sure it wouldn’t work with the Pegasus. The Sabrent hub can be rotated but it’s blocked by either the the CPU or the the Apple I/O PCIe card in two directions. The other ways round either the...
