Stereo and Mono files

Unexpected problem: I got a project in from a studio, recorded in Pro Tools. On each take, a couple tracks are recorded interleaved stereo, while the others are mono. For example, piano-interleaved stereo, while guitars and bass etc. are all mono. About 20 tracks total. My normal practice is to use ...

Re: Which ASIO interface do you use ?

I'm using a RME Fireface UFX+ via USB to get AES out of native. Since the UFX+ has lots of other uses around the studio, I'd like to free it up. Need to find a cost effective way of getting AES out of my machine, via either PCI card of USB. Any recommendations? The RME is so solid and works flawless...

VST installations

After a recent upgrade to 11.1.5 from a rather old Pyramix version, I'm not able to get a number of my VST plugins to appear. I've gone to the settings CP and selected plugin folders, and tried to rescan to no avail. Altiverb and my Tokyo Dawn plugs are a couple that always worked in Pyramix V8 but ...

Re: Windows 7 compatibility?

Mark,

That's all I need to know. I'll resist the temptation to upgrade.

Back to what I was saying. If you ever need to switch OS (64/32 bit) in Windows, a drive tray is an easy solution. I've installed them on all my machines, not just for OS.

Re: Windows 7 compatibility?

Just a thought- We're all reluctant to make any OS changes that would break Pyramix. Windows does not support multiple OS on the same machine as Mac can do. For the last year or so, I've been switching between 32 & 64b Windows versions very easily by using a drive sled in my machine. I have 2 fu...

Re: WAV files not seen upon return to PMX

I've had similar problems- that is if I'm interpreting your issue correctly. I've passed files out to iZotope RX, amended their file names, then returned them to the project in Pyramix, only to find that Pyramix opened the original files, despite the file name change. My simple solution is to use st...

ID-3 tags in .wav files

A client has requested hi-rez files in addition to a DDP for the record I'm working on this week. The tricky part is that they have requested CD-Text and performer info to be embedded into each track/file of the hi-rez files.. I cannot find a tool or standard for CDT & ISRC info on a wav file. I...

Re: L and R levels in stereo master bus

Anything will do. Envelope gain, clip gain, pans.

But like has been said earlier, the Flux Stereo Tool works great, whether you insert it on tracks or busses. And it's free!

Re: L and R levels in stereo master bus

I've never had to adjust levels on a master buss. But I do use the Flux stereo tool every now and then on individual stereo tracks if needed. Or I'll adjust track levels in the EDL.

Disk Catalog

Does anyone have a favorite software package for cataloging hard disk contents?

If it worked across Windows and Mac, that would be even better.

8 Channel limiter/compressor

I had to split out a complex mix into stems for a video project. Originally I wanted to put an 8 channel compressor across a multi mono buss, but when I tried my VST Flux compressors and limiters, it crashed Pyramix. I ended up putting the compressor into a GPS strip, but the routing was far more co...

Re: Solera

Thanks Bernard, I think we often wait to try tools and plug ins till we are in the middle of a project and need something new. Then we download and try them in the heat of the moment. That's pretty much what happened when I tried Flux Pure Limiter. But I'm glad I took time with it. It was able to gi...
