Default (SOLVED) HD Native Core Card and PE6R4-i Magma Chassis Compatibility

Hi all, i could read that the core card should be installed right after video card. Actually my PE6R4 chassis is installed in slot 4 . I would like to switch back & forth between PTHD10 (TDM) wich remains my primary work station & PTHD 11 and later. Is there any known issues having both in a mac pro ?

AFAIK, you cannot have both TDM and HDN installed at the same time.

Aïe ... even i boot on different osx versions ?
Besides it is not an TDM card directly installed in the MP but a Magma card so i was hoping this would do the trick.
also i was hoping that if the chassis is turned off, the HD native would work.



Anyway i should get my HD native card this week so i'll let you know how it went ... crossing fingers

Even if you have TDM on expansion chassis your host chassis would have HDN installed, so for the information I have it will not work. Easiest would be swapping between HDN card and Magma card on the same slot.

That would work, but when you turn on the chassis and your system sees HDN first and then TDM cards on expansion chassis it gets confused.

Hi,



Works at perfection booting on 10.11 with all cards in the mac set properly.
When booting on Mavericks and getting back to TDM : no problems at all
That's really awsome !

hi all,

just to give an update.


as i said it all worked like a charm till suddenly after quite a lot boots on El Capitan (PT Ultimate) + Moutain Lion HD11 & HD10 (TDM) on Mavericks, i started to have "issues" :

evrytime i went back on the TDM rig, pro tools said the memory had to be ajusted.


Now i am forced to pull out the HD natve to get rid of this message and clean all prefs in PTHD10 to get it work as before.


JFreak, the incompatibilities you were talking about are here now.


That's all folks

Maybe you can find another 2nd hand chassis for low price for the HDN, then you only need to swap chassis cable

indeed : that's an option
that or get me another MP




OFF TOPIC : i have been amazinly suprized to see how low is the latency with waves plugings in native mode.
Native seems now pretty close to dsp rigs.


... now that i have a HD Native, it makes me feel going into HDX ... not funny

I have been amazed how much faster I mix now that I have zero WavesHell installed
