Re: MP3 vs Wav bounce in PT 2020.11

Agreed. Used to be a file size, mail attachment, upload/download problem. But now with Dropbox, WeTransfer, etc, it makes much more sense to stick with wav files - and keep it all in sync!

Re: MP3 vs Wav bounce in PT 2020.11

In my experience (which isn't very deep) encoding to / from mp3 adds a sliver of time at the start of the file. I don't know the technical reason for that but it's why I always ask for some...

Re: session won't play, shows "pause"

You might accidentally be in "wait for (midi) note" mode? There is a button for it the transport bar but it can also be triggered by the f11 key if that option is ticked in the ProTools preferences...

Re: Overlapping Clip Edges

I'm not sure I understand the question, but if you are talking about pulling clip A's edge back causing a gap to appear when you'd prefer clip B to follow ... then use the trim tool instead from the...

Re: Noob question: How do I bring up Mac Built-in Output in my session?

Audacity is a surprisingly useful FREE app which I still use a lot when dealing with mp3s and audio snippets. It is limited though so I understand you wanting to get into a more pro setup.

Re: Noob question: How do I bring up Mac Built-in Output in my session?

How are you getting computer audio into Audacity? You still need something like Loopback or Soundflower to route that built-in audio output to a software input, no?

I have the feeling that not...

His public profile (one small click away) says he's on a Mac running Catalina.

Re: Cursor visibility

Re: Playback and record issues

I'd never heard of it either but Google seemed to know. (You should try it!)

This is one of those pesky buttons that you might hit by accident and it may even toggle with the "f12" key. My usual...

Re: Headphones in and out requires Pro Tools restart

Maybe check your headphones, cable, plug / adaptor? If you're listening on speakers check that your power amp was not accidentally switched to bridge mode?

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

So you are using Neural as an inserted plugin on the guitar channel in PT, yeah? And you're still hearing the direct clean sound when you play, but not when you playback what you've recorded?

Re: How can I speed up play back on a Mac?

"QuickTime Player" can play audio at double (or even 5x) speed if that would work. I'd also recommend Roni Music's "Amazing Slow Downer" which is handy for changing speed and/or pitch.
