Re: New MacBook pros! Quad core! Thunderbolt!

Thanks, guys.

I think I'll go with the 5400, and switch to an SSD at a later date then.

Cheers.

Re: New MacBook pros! Quad core! Thunderbolt!

Any thoughts as to whether the 750 GB HD at 5400 rpms would be OK as a "system" drive (audio files and VI's external drives), given the faster processor and other parts, via Firewire?

I'd kind...

Re: New Macbook Pros...

I have an Mbox2 Pro. Is the firewire 800 on the new Macbook Pro 13" OK with the Pro's FW? Anyone using this?

Re: Strike - Content not found

There was a problem with *my* install disks, too, which put files 4, 5 and 6 in the "root" directory (i.e. Macintosh HD), rather than the Strike folder. I also had to move them manually.

Re: Strike - Content not found

Hi,
I had this problem about a month ago. Make sure your Mac (I assume you are on Mac?) system disk is NOT formatted as "case sensitive".

You can check this on the "Get Info" for your Hard Disk....

Re: Strike - some presets are "silent?

OK, for the record, SOLVED.

Discovered, with the help of tech support (I'm embarassed to say), that it was simply that my "Strike Data 5.big" file was missing!

It's so weird, and not sure how...

Re: Strike not playing well with playback engine

I'm still working out Strike, too. But what you've described is merely the resources maxxing out.

In other words, you have to play with the settings, both in Strike (the "wrench" menu), as well...

Re: Strike - some presets are "silent?

Yes, I assumed so. But is there a reason I'd be hearing "silence" on that, and a few of the other "rock" presets?

Is there some setting that might be muting them, due to memory or CPU constraints...

Re: Strike - some presets are "silent?

Got the content expansion and installed it. Now I have the "seventh" .big file with all the rest.

Still, some presets are coming up silent, or in one case silent save for a single tom or...

Re: Strike - some presets are "silent?

I have all six ".big" files, all located in the appropriate folder, and I have run the "Set Content Locator" applet. The file sizes of the six files check out, so I don't believe they are corrupt or...

Re: Strike Content Not Found after Running SetContent Location

Turns out I just had to reformat the system disk to "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)". Previously it was "case-sensitive" version of journaled, but that was causing my problem.

Re: Strike Content Not Found after Running SetContent Location

Sorry for the confusion, guys.

I do not yet have the expansion, so I don't have the 7th file (or perhaps the expanded first file?).

Secondly, because I've done *numerous* reinstalls (I swear,...

Re: Problems With Boom and Grand Piano Virtual Instruments

In my case, when I open Strike or Velvet inside of PTLE 8.0, it...
