Re: 2012 Mac Pro Cheese Grater - PT 2019.6 and Mojave Recommeded GPU

Been using the GPU in my sig for a couple of years and now with Mojave and PT 2019.6. It made a HUGE difference even before I went to Mojave. I was beginning to have issues working to video starting...

Re: Are we not due an update??!!

No but I would be more than happy to go back to a “pay for an upgrade” when I feel it offers something of value for me” plan without the insane penalty.

Re: Are we not due an update??!!

That would apply to subscriptions. But those of us with Perpetual Ultimate licenses pay an additional $400.00/year for "support and updates". When Avid goes the better part of a year without updates,...

Re: CPU question mono vs stereo

Well that's clear as mud. :)

Never having been a Vanilla user, I was just going by what they say on the website, which apparently is incorrect.

I was just going by what AVID had to say about it here:

What is a voice?

"A voice is a single audio stream that roughly equates to one mono audio...

Re: CPU question mono vs stereo

No, Vanilla can play 128 VOICES at 48k. That would be 128 mono tracks or 64 stereo tracks.

Re: CPU question mono vs stereo

I always split real mono tracks if delivered as stereo. It just makes panning, bussing etc easier. It also takes 1/2 the voices. I gotta believe that most plugins use less CPU in mono but have no...

Re: ProTools price adjustments from July 1st.

Pro Tools 2019.6 on Mojave 10.14.5 has been the most stable combo for me since Pro Tools 10.

Re: Alignment/Tweaker tool for HD I/O

I’ve been around long enough to remember ALWAYS having one of those Spectrol tweakers in my pocket. 😀

Re: Mac Pro 5.1 Mojave - what GPU cards work?

Funny I read that firmware roadmap and said to myself “ Wow, I did all that?” :D

Whatever firmware updates required for the 5,1 are part of the OS install. It will tell you exactly what to do as...

Re: Change to Pro Tools Ultimate Renewal Pricing?

I seriously doubt you'll get an answer on what prices will be a year from now. If you think people are making noise about $199/year for non-Ultimate, wait and see what happens if Avid raises that...

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

Definitely better to work at 48 vs 44.1. All your recording, mixing, EQ, etc is done on the higher sample rate audio. Then do ONE last conversion down to 44.1 at the end. Or better yet, let your...

I was kidding about the $799 price (I hope).

Re: ProTools price adjustments from July 1st.

I'm suspecting someone at Avid "forgot" to raise the current $399/year PT Ultimate Perpetual Renewal price to $799.00.

Re: ProTools price adjustments from July 1st.

So I can give up my Perpetual Ultimate license and pay $599/year or $719.88/year instead of the current $399.00/year.

Why would I do that? Am I missing something here?

Re: Recording/Monitoring Question

Totally normal. How else would you punch into an existing track if you can't hear the recorded material.

That's what the Green I button is for, puts the track in input where you only hear the...

Re: 2019.5 wtf???

Same here. 2019.5/macOS 10.14.5, the best combo since PT 9 IMO.

Re: 6-core vs. 12-core MacPro w/ ProTools

I think that is really dependent on the plug-ins you are running in a given session. Pro Tools itself uses all the cores. With the combination of mix plug-ins I typically use, I noticed a huge...

Re: Upgrading a Mac Pro 5.1 12core 2.4Ghz

I can't speak for PT 9 on 10.8. I haven't been there in a long time.

Pro Tools 11+ uses all the cores, you can no longer set the cores used in preferences.

The buffer size has more to do with...
