Re: Time for a new PC

If what you're saying is true, then this is disheartening. I was getting pretty good performances on the same machine, running V8 masscore. I'd hate to think we've taken a step backwards. There's no getting around it- VST plugs are critical to our work. I'd still like to hear of any recent builds us...

Time for a new PC

Running Pyramix native V11 on my current PC, I'm getting pretty poor performance. The machine is a few years old, but was rock solid on my last Pyramix version. In V11, I'm getting slow scrolling, slow launch, poor VST performance and a crash or two a day. Looking over the Merging recommended config...

Re: CDR errors on multiple copies

Frank, I don't think this is the issue. The drive and blanks are new. Using either Tayo or Verbatim Data Plus blanks, all purchased within the last 2 months. Drive is 5 months old. The point is, I'm noting a pattern. Disc 1- errors in the 2-3/second range. Disc 5- errors in the 7-10/sec/avg, with 15...

Waveform generator

Is the freestanding waveform generator (from earlier versions) gone?

Re: Duet Display and iPad Pro

Amazon was sending me ads a couple months back for a very compact 15" monitor which looks to be aimed at video producers. No bulky stand. It's in a form factor much like an iPad, but much cheaper. If memory serves, it was from Asus. Worth a search. I'd love to have one for location work, as I c...

CDR errors on multiple copies

I still have clients who need multiple CD's of projects. I've noticed that if I'm running a batch of say a dozen discs, that after burning 5 or so CD's that error levels rise. My most recent burner is a New Plextor. (Yes, somebody is branding cheap burners with the Plextor name.) Perhaps there is a ...

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!
