Re: PT First isn't recognizing all inputs from interface

No problem. There is always some kind of gotcha when we talk about free sample.

Re: PT First isn't recognizing all inputs from interface

Hi, welcome to the community.

Then it works as designed. PT | First should see first 4 i/o of your hardware. If you want more, you need Standard or Ultimate version.

Re: Channel Names on Eucon App/limit to 9 letters/numbers

Just a legacy from DigiDesign control surfaces. If you had enough pixels on most displays, nothing stops implementing multiple rows for the names. It is just another task for programming that takes...

Re: How many people have wiped their computer and done a completely clean is installl

Yes and no, not this time. If you had a clean install of Big Sur already, do not bother. Monterey is right around the corner, that is when you want to wipe it.

Re: Ilok Question

No problem.

The only way for you to get the license on your own account is to make a deal with original owner. So if you two agree, then you break the key, send it to iLok on behalf of the...

Re: Ilok Question

The license key will work with the licenses activated into it, but unless you are the original owner (the owner of the account linked to the key) there is no way you can move the license out of the...

Re: HD i/o 96

Oh, and if you buy another chassis later, bear in mind that old DigiDesign cards cannot be used in new Avid chassis and vice versa.

Re: HD i/o 96

That's where Avid HD chassis fixed things. There are no limitations to card configurations. The chassis are all the same.

But the old blue DigiDesign interfaces were another story. All of them...

Re: HD i/o 96

Hi, welcome to the community.

It cannot be done. 96 is a special version that only accepts cards in slots one and two. But you now have some spare ones in case one of them breaks.

Re: certain plugins crashing PT

Well yes and no.

Some plugin vendors do not really code for AAX and AU and VST separately, but instead code once and wrap later. That kind of shortcut may cause troubles fast.

So while common...

Re: How to install os 11.3

Hi, welcome to the community.

I am sure 11.6 is just as fine, they just mention it is supported on 11.3 (or later) because likely that was the OS available when Carbon was released.

Yes, you are right. Even one badly behaving plugin may crash PT even if it is only loaded into memory and not used in a session. That however should be addressed by...

Re: How many people have wiped their computer and done a completely clean is installl

Yes, I really manually reinstall everything once a year. That is why I have less problems than average Tom, Dick and Harry.

I also check if there are plugin updates EVERY single time I update PT...

Re: Pro Tools HD 12.5 compatibility

If you have license for 12.6 or later, you can get it from Avid Download Center. If you have license for 12.5 or earlier, you can get it from Avid Support.

Re: How many people have wiped their computer and done a completely clean is installl

Another note.

Once you have a fully working system, make a clone of it. Many swear CCC is the best there is, but have a solid backup you can revert to in case of any problems.

But with that...

Re: How many people have wiped their computer and done a completely clean is installl

I do it every year.

Once the major update is out, plan ahead. Do not go for dot-zero release but instead wait until dot-one or dot-two.

Then first do the upgrade Apple-way if you have libraries...

Re: 192 to HD I/O upgrade

Exactly.

If you do cables yourself, driving -10 should be using ground and hot pins only, not connecting hot and cold together. This is the most importan point, and which is why the original...

Re: 192 to HD I/O upgrade

If you want to be 100% sure, create a support case and ask Avid Support to confirm, but if memory serves me right you can use normal cable with Avid HD interface even if you connect to -10

Before clean install it is useful to throw all plugins to unused folder and try again. Even a single bad behaving plugin may cause that. But if it happens with stock plugins only, then yes, clean...
