Re: Pro Tools 2022.4 on Mac Studio M1 Ultra

My understanding is that multi-core performance doesn't buy you much other than bouncing speed and video performance.

Re: The end of perpetual licenses

I would not be surprised to see perpetual licenses continue to be sold bundled with Avid hardware.

Re: Post Production - where to start?

This is all very true in music work too. My experience with interns has been that only a tiny few "get it" and most don't. The job is really all about solving problems. No two projects are ever the...

Re: PT 2022 release?

I mean Digidesign people who moved to Boston taking top management positions over both Media Composer and Pro Tools. It really was a merger and not simply an acquisition.

The corporatization...

Re: PT 2022 release?

The story is wilder than that. So many Digidesign people took on roles at Avid that it looked like Digidesign had really taken over Avid.

You aren't alone but the competition is as bad or worse.

Re: Apple Studio/Mini - What bits we need

I switched to windows rather than moving past Apple system 9. I'm now considering a move back to the new Mac.

Re: Apple Studio/Mini - What bits we need

I think apples are being compared to oranges in discussions about CPU speed, cores, memory, and storage compared to Intel. These are just different, and it is going to require some real-world...

Re: PT 2022 release?

Avid has always been slow to "support" new OS versions although Pro Tools has often been more solid on unsupported new systems than competition claiming "support."

Re: The best time stretching app..

The original "gold" Waves plug-ins seem incredibly underestimated today. Waves contracted with the top DSP developers in the world which is probably a lot of why they were so expensive.

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: 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.

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.

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

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.
