Re: Tab To Transient Broken 2021.3.1

I think he meant:
"Few" = three days
"Couple" = two days

I had to read it "several" times to figure it out. "Several" = more than three. Lol

Re: Subscription/Perpetual Lic Question

You are right. For a coninuous user of Protools, the perpetual+support model is more cost effective in the long term. However for the occasional user that only need Protools for a month or a few...

Re: PT 2021.3.1 giving AAE errors on Big Sur 11.4

The general rule for troubleshooting plugins is to move all plugins to the unused folder. Restart Protools to ensure that there are no errors when all plugins are not loaded. Then one by one (a few...

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

Don't let "being a fan" limit your creativity. There are many very good DAWs out there and each person's workflow is not the same. Again, Protools works. It does require a certain amount of...

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

Protools has some bugs, but nothing like it not working. Otherwise we'd all be complaining. It works. There is clearly something wrong in your system or configuration, so provide more information...

Re: PT on MacBook Air M1 processor 16Gb RAM

Guys, it is not a competition. The M1 and the Intel Macs are capable machines to run Protools. Obviously if you are a power user needing 500+ tracks or a plethora of sample libraries loaded into...

Re: MBP or MacMini?

The general consensus is that the M1 processor performs very well and much cooler than their Intel i7 & i9 counterparts. The main area of concern for Protools users have been RAM. Given your...

Re: digiSPTI.exe broken

I have one somewhere...but then I have to find a USB-C to USB-A dongle adapter, which last time I tried, it didn't seem to work. It's like Apple really doesn't want me to use CDs or DVD's.

Re: Kurzweil PC88mx is not working in Pro Tools 2021.3.1

I checked the PC2 weight. It was pretty heavy at 35 Lbs. Compare that with the Midiboard at 85 Lbs! My back is still out of wack from moving that thing by myself.

Re: Kurzweil PC88mx is not working in Pro Tools 2021.3.1

I used to have a Kurzweil Midi Board. I liked the weighted action on it. It was a pain to move as it weighed a lot. I finally got tired of straining my back and sold it. I miss it.
