Re: MTRX/DADMAN output to multiple Spkr Outputs simultaneously with same stereo sourc

Indeed. Pick one set of monitors and turn them up ;)

Although, I suppose, perhaps you have a set in the live room for band listening, RainbowStudio used to have a very nice pair of B&Ws for this.

I'm still (nominally) maintaining it, any issues send to app support (one word) at lukktone dot com.

Re: HD driver MTRX studio

Or if DVS could follow the sample rate of the MTRX, as then you could leave CoreAudio to SRC. Expensive alternative is the Dante card for the MTRX which I believe includes a SRC.

Re: HD driver MTRX studio

Yeah, I guess it could be a bug that affects all platforms but it seems like something that should be caught in QA. If you could change the rate from DVS itself or, if it could follow another Dante...

Re: HD driver MTRX studio

Super annoying isn’t it! Particularly as on my Mac (not sure if it’s related to MacPro7,1 or Catalina) I can only change the sample rate on DVS from Dante Controller from a second machine. If I...

Re: Are carbons head amps adjustable from PT

There's no reason the preamp control protocol between Pro Tools and the Carbon has to be MIDI, though.

Re: NEW Avid SYNC X

I doubt it’s going to make a difference sonically with modern interfaces but certainly improves things workflow wise, particularly with the MTRX not supporting Loop Sync.

Re: NEW Avid SYNC X

Looks good! Surprised there’s no support for PTP for AES67, Dante, SMPTE 2110, AVB etc but perhaps the mainstream market isn’t quite there yet.

Re: Carbon and Windows 10?

AVB is free to implement. macOS comes with a standards compliant implementation that supports some Ethernet NICs. Windows does not.

Re: Pro Tools HDX and low H/W Buffer Sizes

I have a HD Native Thunderbolt, I haven't used it on my MacPro7,1, but I did use it recently on a friend's MacPro6,1 and it worked very well at the smallest buffer size. There's no specific native...

Re: Pro Tools HDX and low H/W Buffer Sizes

Yeah, it's a bit of a tricky time to make a decision. I don't have a crystal ball but I imagine it will be some time before HDX is qualified on Apple Silicon. As an impression I would say that my...

Re: Pro Tools HDX and low H/W Buffer Sizes

OK, I tried a single Kontakt piano patch, at 44.1kHz, 64 samples, HDX2 on a 16 core MacPro7,1. Works fine. :) But, with bigger sessions (at 96k) I usually have to run at 1024 to make things work...

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...

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

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?

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...
