Re: Any old-timers recognize this card?

The first generation of Digidesign cards in the early '90s needed to run the media drive using the card's DSP chip because Macs at that time weren't fast enough. I ran an SE-30 back then so I never...

Re: Using Clippers instead of Limiters! Thoughts

Beware that a clipper can sound dreadful with lossy encoding/streaming.

Re: How many of you are using AOIP enabled converters?

Re: HEAT in 2021

A trim affects it in "post" mode but not "pre." I use clip gain to reduce everything to -20 to -22 = 0VU anyway so that I can use "analog-modeled" plug-ins.

Re: MTRX Studio x LFE/Bass Management

Dolby recommends one for "bass management?" I've never experienced worse translation than "bass management!"

Re: Pro Tools compatibility with Windows 11

Avid's requirements for "official" support/compatibility have always been far more stringent than most DAW developers so I wouldn't expect it for a few more months. I've always found Pro Tools to be...

Re: Windows 11 comes out Oct 5th

I understand people running the very latest generation of Intel CPUs will see a performance update which makes it well worth upgrading. The rest of us, not so much.

Re: Who else is still using a Mac Pro 5,1 or older computer?

A massive number of people including large "name" studios running old PPC Macs!

Re: Batch normalization (LUFS) in PT?

While it's not automagic, the separate Avid Pro Limiter Loudness Analyzer Audiosuite plug-in is really fast. I can quickly measure a selection and then tweak the clip gain to where I want it.

Re: Windows 11 comes out Oct 5th

One of my clients sent me his spare Mac Mini because he wants me doing his Atmos mastering even if it's on headphones referenced to my mastering monitors.

Lots to think about...

Re: Windows 11 comes out Oct 5th

It might well mean a lot of people going back to Macs because we need to buy a new computer in order to run it.

Re: Dolby Atmos production suite alternative

My understanding is that it's because Apple's built-in drivers support it while Microsoft's don't, at least yet. Yamaha wrote their own Windoze drivers for Nuewindo.

Re: 99.00 perpetual license update SALE .. how long is this promotion going on ??

The direct corollary is in video editing where Adobe is Avid's biggest competitor.

Re: 99.00 perpetual license update SALE .. how long is this promotion going on ??

The elephant in the room is the fact that Adobe seems to be doing just fine after moving to all subscription eight years ago. In fact, after a three-year post-changeover slump, Adobe showed their...

Re: Is no one else embarrassed by Elastic Audio?

I found that SoundShifter sounds incredible when run at 96k rather than at 48 or 44.1.

Re: Anyone running Carbon successfully on a Hackintosh?

I must run my SoundGrid interface with a USB3 to Ethernet adaptor because of incompatibility with Intel's Ethernet chips.

Re: Pro Tools Cost Analysis...

Avid's corporate customers love subscriptions. Subscriptions are 100% tax deductible as is gear rental. Most broadcasters along with big recording and film studios are renting absolutely everything.

Re: Just grabbed an old 192 and avid sync what should I do next (2008 Mac Pro)

I know a lot of people running 192s. It is no longer "supported" because some of the chips in it are no longer available for repairs, but it is compatible.

Re: Mix heavily Resonates sounds only in my car - JBL

This is why it's not a good idea to get carried away with signal processing.

Re: Mix heavily Resonates sounds only in my car - JBL

The biggest problem is that we hear the room separately from the speakers. Early reflections are the only part of the room you can actually "correct."

Re: pro tools 2021 : add mp3

Adding 16-bit dither to an MP3 is actually a good idea since most players truncate to sixteen bits.

Re: 32bit or 24bit

The only time thirty-two float helps with headroom is when the audio has been calculated. Converters will still clip because they have analog stages and usually fixed-point math.
