Re: Is CD Import still possible on Windows w/ QuickTime?

Who else gets this error message? (The CD ROM service (digiSPTI.exe) is not installed, not registered, or damaged.) As I’d mentioned, I’m using Roxio to rip CDs when I need to import audio from CD,...

Re: Is CD Import still possible on Windows w/ QuickTime?

Now the burning question….if we were to grab that .exe from a previous version of Pro Tools BEFORE they broke it, and just install that into 2021.3.1, what happens?

Re: No sound, windows

Make sure that Windows isn’t using your interface as the default sound device.

Re: Is CD Import still possible on Windows w/ QuickTime?

Yep, me too. I have to use Roxio to rip the CD. Something’s broken, but apparently only...

Re: Please help with 'Cannot initialize device...' when hitting play

Make sure Windows isn’t using your Tascam as the “default sound device.” Avid is a diva (which oddly enough is avid spelled backwards) and doesn’t like to share the hardware. Assign all Windows...

Re: Drive speed.

5400 rpm drives indeed don’t have the throughput to keep up. I will echo the previous recommendation to put an ssd in a usb 3 case and go to work. After you disable usb power management, of course.

Re: Windows 11

I’ll try it about two “point” updates AFTER AVID says it’s compatible.

Re: Dolby Atmos Spatial Audio Mixing on PC?

Probably not….that’s how they coerce you into spending the bug bucks for Ultimate.

Re: Channel 1-2 Already assigned (path n/a)

System info please. If you’re on Windows (you didn’t say) and Windoze grabs your interface as the “default sound device,” you’ll run into all kinds of problems with i/o routing and sample rate...

Re: Installed PT 2021.3.1 onto Win10, nothing works as expected

If buying a separate interface is the key to getting it to work for you, I’d venture a guess that, yes, you do need it.

Re: Installed PT 2021.3.1 onto Win10, nothing works as expected

You need to give us detailed system info to pinpoint what’s going on. Pro Tools is a real diva when it comes to hardware configuration.
See “help us help you” at the top of the page.

Re: UI anomalies with latest PT subscription

Disable your network card temporarily and see if it behaves any better. Mine was freezing every ten seconds…the display would freeze, but it would keep playing/recording. I’ve lessened it to some...

Re: Import from CD broken

I can try dragging from explorer, but I have a sneaking suspicion that it’s going to once again look for that damaged .exe file. So for now I’ll use Roxio.

Fair enough, but I edit music for Olympic figure skaters quite frequently, and they bring their music in on…CD. I don’t see the harm in leaving this function intact, and agree with you 100% about...

Re: Import from CD broken

Update. Uninstalled/reinstalled 2021.3.1. Same thing. That file appears to be broken. I can use Roxio to do this, thankfully, but this needs attention.

“Digi SPTI is not installed, not registered, or damaged.” Eh?
Uninstalled/reinstalling 2021.3.1. We’ll see.

Re: Import from CD broken

Nope, it used to work fine. I’ve been importing audio this way off of CDs for YEARS. It stopped working as of 2021.3.1. Indicative of a feature being left out of the installer. They broke it with one...
