Re: Catalina update for Pro-Tools?

The market for the new Mac Pro is video, a market they almost completely lost thanks to the trashcan and FCX. Shipping it with only Catalina would be a colossal mistake because it would be...

Re: Mix print level???

Just print to 32-bit float files and it probably can't clip.

There is one very good reason to print to moderate levels. You don't ever want your monitor D to A's headroom limitations influencing...

Re: Low Latency Monitoring question

The problem is that comb filtering can affect a performance long before it becomes noticable to the listener. Only good if you are charging by the hour...

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

I don't think the right answer is more frequent but buggier releases. I've been utterly shocked by the bugfix lists in recent updates of other DAWs. Unfortunately, today's operating systems are a...

Re: Sonnox plugins?

They are still among the very best sounding, i.e. don't screw as much up, plug-ins out there. Another real sleeper is the Waves Q-10 which was the very first third-party plug ever.

Only the very...

Re: Good Studio Sub Woofer

The problem is that low frequencies are still directional in spite of the '50s era marketing nonsense claiming that they are not. If you ever get a chance to compare calibrated full-range speakers to...

Re: Good Studio Sub Woofer

None unless you are mixing low frequency effects for a film. A pair ranks behind that for extending monitors having a limited lf response. Single subs don't translate very well. They are fine for fun...

Re: Patch bay problems

It appears that you want to use that 1176 in a Pro Tools insert. Is that correct?

I would advise recording the bass without the SansAmp or 1176 with the player listening to a studio monitor. That...

Re: Favorite Saturation Plugins - Does Anything Touch Decapiator

Clip-gain gives you lots more control over HEAT.

Re: Different loudness readings with different meters

There is no "precisely correct" meter because of the wide variation in program material and looseness in the R-128 spec. It's a wide world of "sort of." For that reason, it's a bad idea to really...

Re: Bounce skips the first milliseconds

This is typically caused by a plug-in.

Re: ProTools price adjustments from July 1st.

No but Samplitude is the equivalent of Vanilla. Sequoia, the equivalent of Ultimate is even more expensive than Ultimate.

Re: To HEAT or not to HEAT?

HEAT sounds appropriately subtle when you drop the level of each track down to -20dBFS=0VU or lower with clip-gain and then mix with it on. It doesn't sound good when hitting it any higher than that...

Re: ProTools price adjustments from July 1st.

How is this any different from when PT 12.? came out including the very same prices? I remember all of the same posturing and complaints. Later, they separated vanilla updates and support allowing...

Re: No more HD Native PCIe card?

It's hard to say. There are certainly a lot more new Macs with thunderbolt than PCIe so it could also be that demand dropped off to the point that ordering more made no sense.

W8.1 and 10 both worked better for me than 7 ever did.

Re: What smaller(er) control surface for PT19?

I have an early silver one. It took the latest firmware and works perfectly with PT 2019.5!

Re: Avid's Response to the NEW Mac Pro

They were losing the video production market big-time with the trashcan/FCX combo.

Re: HDX vs Native

You can't really compare latency numbers between the two because they don't include the interface.

My personal beef is with fader latency. Every console with moving faders has flunked that test...

Re: Sound quality of mixing in Protools vs others..Discuss

The problem with TDM is that it truncates everything on both ends to 24 bits. The dithered mixer plug-in solves the feed to plug-ins but the plug-in developers needed to dither the output of their...
