Default Re: New to HDX....quite disappointed.

"What's more, there's a separate FPGA processor for your mix bus, so all of your HDX card's DSP power is dedicated to running plug-ins."
(as I suspected earlier in this thread) I think somebody at Sweetwater is confused by the FPGA chip on a HD Native card that provides a mixer used for low-latency monitoring, and that has nothing to do with the mix bus inside Pro Tools. IIRC that is not even implemented on HDX... although there is a similar FPGA chip that provides glue functions on the board. If you purchased HDX from Sweetwater because of this mis-information I'd except them to look after you and provide a full refund.
