Default PT 11HD is Awesome

Just upgraded to PT 11HD and my upgrade went very smoothly, no ilok issues, and even my upgrade to OS 10.8.4 seems to be a good move

I did my first tracking session with it today, and used my Apollo as the front end, was able to track with real time FX , threw the Apollo, and I didn't need mute tone! I was really happy with the lack of latency, and the new metering is a god send, finally can see as well as hear what's really going down

Then the bounce to disk for ruff mixes was great, I really have to give credit to Avid for making such a great update

If anyone is in the fence about the new PT, all I can say is I really think its a game changer for PT,

Tommy

Default Re: PT 11HD is Awesome

Just wanted to add it also worked well with my Native card in a OWC thunderbolt chassis and my old blue. 192, very happy ...though I haven't run that system threw its paces as I did my Apollo setup

Default Re: PT 11HD is Awesome

Thanks. How would you rate the comparative performance of both systems (not feature-wise)?

Asking since I'm currently considering an Omni + tb or ?? Apollo jumps as a prime contender...

Default Re: PT 11HD is Awesome

Well I previously owned a HD3 accel on a G5 computer that rocked for years , and before that a 9600 with mix system, so I've come up with Pro tools, my system now is a MBP 2011 17" i7 quad core with. 16 gig ram, that computer just natively, beats hands down my previous systems, and combine that with the Apollo with real time FX processing when you track, it's like having a real analog desk, because you can record and print with EQ, FXs etc.and the converters are great! Now the native card with omni is a great.combination
, but if you do a lot of recording in a multi track situation, Apollo wins by a mile, and yes the TB option is nice.
So to recap Fast Mac + Apollo is my first choice
Fast Mac + Native card digi interface 2nd
HDX card is not a option for me anymore
Also if you want a DSP card Apollo has it, but you can only use UA plug which are very nice IMO
Now combine all that with the new PT 11HD and you have a system that blows away previous systems and version,and yes I'm waiting for certain plugs to be ported, but I've got enough now to totally record and mix a complete project no matter what. Also I did get VEP pro because I know some VI will never go AAX , so I can still use them
