Default If You Are Upgrading to HDX - Do it This Way

For those of you wanting to upgrade, if you are currently PCIe, then do not do the upgrade with your cards. Sell your cards, buy used PCI(x) cards and use those to upgrade....You'll come out several grand ahead. Trust me, I mastered the last upgrade several years ago when it was Mix to PCIe systems. I bought tons of Mix Cards, transferred ownership, and then sold the new system, made several grand off each system.

Whatever you do, make sure the PCI(x) cards come with a transfer of ownership. As the card will need to be registered in your name for the upgrade.

Nothing illegal about it and it does not violate AVID rules if the hardware is registered in your name.
HD Native Pcie, PTHD 11, PT12 Vanilla, Omni, Lynx Aurora 16, 192 I/O (16 in/8 out), 24 Fader D-Command, lots of preamps and compressors.

MacPro 5.1 (12) Core (2009 MacPro 8 Core Upgraded to a 12 Core MacPro), 56 Gig Ram, SSD System & 3 - 2TB Drives, OSX 10.9.5, Windows 10 Via Bootcamp
