Re: Black square dot on aux track

If an engine is knocking and pinging and sputtering and your diagnostic equipment says "diesel engine" your mechanic isn't any closer to finding the cause. What I was asking was "what exactly is the...

Re: macOS 12.4?

I might give it a go. There have been a few annoying PT-related quirks lately and maybe an OS update will help.

Re: Pro Tools 2022.4 beach freeze occurs constantly

I notice this when I have platter drives mounted. If I unmount them, the issue improves. It's still worse than PT 2021.12. Let's hope for an update soon.

Re: Avid Icon Control Surface Compatibility (D|Command/Control) with PT Studio 2022.4

Never said it was the only reason, and never said it was anyone else's reason, I said it was the largest factor in obtaining a large format controller in my situation, and it was the rationale...

Re: Avid Icon Control Surface Compatibility (D|Command/Control) with PT Studio 2022.4

It depends on the task. Yes, the big consoles will offer some deeper functionality of certain routines, but the same can be said about the smaller controllers for different routines, and they can be...

Re: Avid Icon Control Surface Compatibility (D|Command/Control) with PT Studio 2022.4

I think it depend on what you've trained your brain to work with. I also like having more dedicated knobs/faders/buttons on my console (i.e. Icon or D|Command), and came from large format desks, but...

I didn't see where the problem was identified. What exactly is causing it?

Re: PT Movie File Location

When you open the session, PT will try to locate and relink the video file, which can be a manual or automatic process. I would go manual and locate the file. We do this often. If that's not feasible...

Re: New "Mac Studio" from Apple

Good to know. It does seem like a silly thing to deal with after all these decades.

Re: New "Mac Studio" from Apple

That might be key to the issue. Hardware communication. Did you mention it to Avid?

Re: New "Mac Studio" from Apple

I see those pesky spikes from time to time and often find the fix in a plugin update, or trashing PT Prefs and creating a new file, or (I know this is an old fix that some will argue with but it's...

Re: Apple Studio/Mini - What bits we need

Is anyone really using that much bandwidth in-session? I'm fully onboard with having as much as feasibly possible, and some to spare for peace-of-mind, but within reason of practicality. Some of...

Re: Pro Tools 2022.4 on Mac Studio M1 Ultra

We can look at benchmarks to show what the computer is capable of, and we've seen plenty of these, but they doesn't tell us much about our particular ProTools rigs, and that's where the confusion...

Re: 2022 update: routing Mac Built-In audio to PT?

Mark-

I also have a Mac Studio on the way and the lack of optical out was a concern at first. To accommodate for that, I ordered a USB-C "sound card" which is essentially just a small box with an...

Re: Apple Studio/Mini - What bits we need

We have the exact model mentioned, purchased multiple times across several years, and none are what I'd call noisy. We can hear it if we get close, but we're only that close temporarily, to access...

Re: Apple Studio/Mini - What bits we need

That's odd. We've had about 5 of these in various studios and none had a fan that we could hear. We're using SSD drives though and there's not much heat -- maybe platter drives, which could get...

Re: Obtaining "Goliath" library for Structure?

That does make it sound as though EW's and Avid's are the same. The original was definitely 10 discs. I wonder if my Avid-based iLok asset would allow me to use the EW library.

Re: New "Mac Studio" from Apple

Thanks! I think so, too. I run a well-oiled ProTools rig and don't typically run into the issues I'm seeing on the forum, so I'm optimistic. If it runs slow, I'll find ways to hone it. If not, I'll...

Re: New "Mac Studio" from Apple

Great info!



I've suspected that this is the culprit, partially if not wholly, for more than one of the less-than-glorious results we're seeing reported in some threads. As we keep suggesting,...

Re: Obtaining "Goliath" library for Structure?

Mac only.

I think EW's Goliath is a different product. Even if instruments are the same, my iLok asset is for the Avid version.

Obtaining "Goliath" library for Structure?

We bought four copies of "Goliath - Structure Edition" back when Avid first released it. Since then we've installed new machines and Goliath didn't make the transition. Back then, the installation...
