Price all these from $2K to whatever. That would have been real competition to UA...

The suite of AAX-DSP is OK but autotune, waves and some others were huge losses. They needed a mitigation plan at release to handle this. It seems so possible that a TDM to AAX-DSP bridge on the HDX card could have been made or maybe even make a special TDM card/box for HDX.
That info about R&D being done for additional HDX products is new to me. Is that true? Do you have a source for that? That is very interesting if true.

I would say the suite of AAX DSP is more than okay, but yes, I agree about the AutoTune and Waves losses. Of course, now you technically CAN do AAX-DSP Waves, albeit unconventionally, with StudioRack, Digigrid and HDX Hardware Inserts.

I don't think it would have been possible to connect TDM and HDX. They are completely different and incompatible architectures.

I have no inside info > By R+D done I only mean there is existing Hardware for all of this that can be mostly used -
HDN TB box is a TB to AVID interface bridge. Modify that to connect to HDX. Sonnet does this by straight TB to 4 lanes of PCIe and it runs 3 HDX cards now. The interfaces all have DiGiLink connectors (like an HDX card). Straightforward to put that in a box. Leave connectors on the box for adding more interfaces or HDX boxes. Compared to designing the original products this is all 1/4 or less of the R+D work to do. (IMO) The HDN TB box and HDX card are 90% of a standalone HDX TB box.

DiGiGrid is a way to do the Waves (I ran this for 1.5 years). Not quite the workflow of HDX but it does work. In the end I just found it simpler to find the necessary tools for tracking all in AAX-DSP and leave the Native plugs for mixing and FX on already recorded stuff.

Doesn't the 11R use the same DSP chip as HDX?

i think a compact hdx/thunderbolt interface (like uad apollo) would be awesome!

I suspect the next one may be an HDX server that is accessed over Ethernet.

My guess is AVB and that has already proven to be successful

Well, successful for some definition thereof. But I agree it'd probably be the right choice for its low latency (but I imagine you'd still need an Ethernet interface that bypasses the operating system's networking stack, as is the case with Dante).
