Re: Mild Upgrade

USB has more CPU overhead then firewire as I recall.. There is a bit of trade off, I've had good luck with my firewire interface too (ProFire 2626), but USB realistically has more of a future than...

Re: How to Record Drum tracks through ProTools/Scarleyy 2i2 interface - with AKAI- MP

I have to say the manual for that is garbage.. Normally there would be setup instructions for most popular DAW's.

The basics - You need to set it as a MIDI controller, create an instrument track...

Re: Windows vs Mac

A touchy subject to be sure.

I think when you're using a supported configuration, both can work great and really would be user UI choice.

It seems every time a Mac update comes out, there's a...

Re: Where should I/can I install Pro Tools First?

I'm not sure if this is what you mean, but the recorded audio files you make will be what takes up the most space. That and/or samples, if you use them.

The cache folder I referenced is where all...

Re: Where should I/can I install Pro Tools First?

Personally, I think you're over thinking it :)

Just install it on your C: in your normal user account. If you don't have an NVME or at least a SSD as your C: drive, then you might want to save...

Re: Playback Output Stopps randomly... Need restart and reconnect focusritescarlett

A couple of things, since it is happening in more than just Pro Tools, it likely is a Focusrite setting or issue.

Re: PT 2022 release?

Avid generally never gives ETA for releases. Beta testers may know, but they wont tell. Mods usually only find out a day or two in advance even.

It has been solid for me. For the amount of I/O you get for the money, and a brand with a decent reputation I don't think you can go wrong.

I'd move on from Firewire personally.

What is your price point?
How many pre's?
What OS version?

Re: Does 003 driver Work on Windows 11?

I have an old 002 kicking around that I had briefly working on Win 11 (same drivers as the 003). Should work, but not officially supported.

Re: Pro Tools cant find my mic in Playback Engine :(

If you're on Windows you probably have to install the "ASIO Service installer (Win)" from the downloads on the page you linked.

Re: Trigger finger

My mother had that as well. She was able to get it sorted out with a small day surgury though and hasn't had issues since (about 2 years ago).

Re: upgrading protools first to perpetual

Darryl has it well covered, but I'm not sure you get access to old installers with a new sub. Just something to verify, if an old ver is required..

Re: Saving Pro Tools Installers saved to an External Hard Drive

Lots of great answers, but I'll just add that if you only use Pro Tools here or there, there's also the monthly subscription option. $34.99 CAD (I'm not sure what that it is for USD).

Re: Which Audio Interface to Purchase? - I Specify My Goals

Generally you don't want Windows or other applications using your audio interface at all -it will cause more problems than it is worth.

Re: Pro Tools | First: Discontinued

That is correct, if you already have PT | First registered, you can download it from your My Avid account. New registrations however are no longer possible.

Re: PT does not play coming out of Windows sleep

I think disabling sleep is more for the audio interface than Pro Tools (asuming Pro Tools is not running when the PC goes to sleep).

Re: Dual Boot?

I usually use the "portable" version, standalone .exe that doesn't install.

Download the latest version when I want to use it and delete it when I'm done.
