Default PT 11 HD Native vs PT 11 HDX

I have tried to find this answer on the webinar transcripts and in this forum but i cant seem to find a definitive answer...

If i understand correctly, 1 HDX card will provide me with 256 voices while an HD native system will give me unlimited tracks/voices? If this is the case, then what is the point of using DSP cards with PT 11?

I just purchased a dual 6 core mac pro with hyperthreading which gives me 24 total processors (says PT 10)

Maybe I misread and im not fully understanding the point of an HDX card with PT 11, but if it seems that your actually being limited with an HDX card then im really confused lol

Any info on this would be great!

Thanks! =)

Default Re: PT 11 HD Native vs PT 11 HDX

In native vanilla PT... 96 simultaneous tracks max.

HDN = 256 max

HDX = 768 max

Greater expandability
Heat, less latency (HDX vs HDN), DSP when needed.
Hard so say until 11's out as to additional performance.

Just to clarify, 768 refers to voicable tracks. Actual voices depends on the number of HDX cards: 1 card (256 voices), 2 cards (512 voices), etc.

These figures are for 44.1kHz/48kHz.

That is correct. And the reason that I posted the link to the chart.

Default Re: PT 11 HD Native vs PT 11 HDX

So correct me if I am wrong, but with 11 out and Macpro with 12 cores at 3.03GHz and 64gb using HDN... and ADC set to 16,383 (max). PT11 using the cores and ram, one should be able to do a full 5.1 mix far better and more effiecently than what a TDM HD with like 10 cards or more?

I mean with this set up, how much more powerfull would HDX be?
Since waves is native anyways, so being able to use all that ram with that GHz speed and cores (okay no heat and the latency is not like the HDX, but were're talking point zero zero something here, very insiginificant).
If you don't need 700+ tracks and are not mixing Avatar II. Wouldn't this scenario suffice for a LONG LONG time?

No matter how powerful your desktop/laptop will be, HDX will add it's power on top of that.

Yes. It would be a very powerful set up. Probably more then an hd 10
