Re: SSL UC1 plugin controller

With PT, I think it's essential that UC1 is combined with a DAW controller of some kind, otherwise you have to have a mouse in one hand and your eyes on the screen most of the time; for transport,...

Following up after three weeks of using UC1 with PT:

Erratic behavior in groups bin

When I click on a group to activate it, it shows a contextual menu; like I had right-clicked or option-clicked. But sometimes not! I can't seem to activate/deactivate groups by clicking on them in...

Re: Looking for recommendations for SSD drive

Excellent advice from EGS.

My advice is:
If you just need lots more space, then buy a used big Firewire 800 external drive and plug it in. They should be very cheap now. Just use it for storage...

Re: Is Clean My Mac X ok to use?

My experience with CleanMyMac is from some years back, but it resulted in my dreading any and all applications of this kind. In my opinion they are snake oil. The only thing they do is make you feel...

Re: Looking for recommendations for SSD drive

Thanks, Sardi, for making that clear for us.
The question is, Lisa; are you looking for an upgrade to your old internal HD, as in a faster drive, or just more storage space. I think that's the...

Re: Looking for recommendations for SSD drive

What mac model you have? Year? Processor?
Makes a difference. To know what are the best options.

Re: Avid Link downloads [SOLVED]

The one I have installed is called:
First_AIR_Instruments_Bundle_19.12_Mac
You should be able to find it on Avid.com.

Otherwise, I could make it available to you.

Re: No playback sound using Scarlett 2i2 3rd gen

To correct one of our most trusted contributors here on the forum, Dave, you'll have to do better than that; instrument tracks can't record or contain audio files in any way. Simple as that. They are...

Re: Will Vocaloid work with Protools 11?

I had a quick look, and it clearly says:
"Compatible with: VST, AU."
No AAX, so no.
Unless you want to use a 'plugin host' like Bluecat Audio Patchworks.

Not really my thing, but there must...

Re: 32bit or 24bit

That pretty much sums it up.
I would add:
24bit or 32bit floating point; Very little difference in cpu load and disk usage. Do whatever, makes almost no difference.

Re: Split window header on Mac - Weird ?

Thank you. You're right, I found it.
