Default IS there another meaning behind this sentence?

"Sneaking at Waves"...

Hey guys! Maybe I am just crazy, sleeping too little, but pay attention to this sentence.. It may have several hidden meanings -lol

"Morphoder - Pro Tools HD (or later) only. "

IS there something (new) coming on?

Thanks

I doubt it, but I'm still crossing my fingers...

I wouldn’t be surprised if there were new HD cards coming from Digidesign. The new high end dual 2 GHz Apple G5 only accepts PCI-X cards. PCI-X has a much greater bandwidth than PCI – it removes a major data bottleneck. If I were Digidesign I would jump at this technology. It would also make sense to put more powerful chips on the HD cards as there are only 3 slots on the G5 (one of which will probably be taken up by SCSI). I expect the interfaces – the 96 I/O, 192 I/O, MIDI I/O etc will remain the same.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">yeah, i agree. i wouldn't be suprised if they came out with improved PCI cards soon.

yeah, i'd agree about the interfaces too; it is way too soon after HD originally got released for a full blown replacement of HD to come out anytime in the near future, so i'd be very suprised if the existing hardware i/o's won't still work with new PCI cards, if they do indeed happen.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">It could be running plain ol' HD. G5's PCI-X slots are backward compatible with regular PCI cards (3.3 volts). And you will be able to configure a G5 with 3 old PCI slots if you want.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">The new G5's PCI-X slots are backward compatible even at the dual 2GHz level. I have a new dual running PT6.1 right now. Apple's site clearly states:

"Systems can be configured with PCI or PCI-X expansion technology: Three 64-bit PCI-X
slots allow you to add one card running at 133MHz and two cards running at 100MHz;
or three 32-bit PCI slots allow you to add three 33MHz cards. PCI-X is designed to
support 3.3V signaling and Universal 33MHz and 66MHz PCI cards.)"


Lets make sure we have ALL the facts before we just make wild statements. Also, the PCI-X Standard is 100% backward compatible and Apple's implementation is to that spec.
