Blackmagic Intensity USB

Good day folks, does anyone know whether PMX 11 supports the Blackmagic Intensity Shuttle USB as a playout graphics card for the video track in Pyramix? I have a small computer without a free slot for a decent Blackmagic Decklinc card, so going over an external graphics adapter seems the only way to...

Re: Click at the end of master files!

Thanks, Frank! I wouldn't call it an "old" error, but indeed, I made the DDP master on my laptop native version where I have not yet installed 11.1.5. Having re-done the master on my larger system that I have migrated to 11.1.5 now, the new version is click-free! I was not aware of this pr...

Click at the end of master files!

This is ultimately annnoying: I get an audible click at the very end of a DDP master once downconverting from higher sampling rates. The source project came in 48kHz, so I made the mastering in 48kHz and chose to SRC while creating the PMI master file. "Workaround" is to manually SRC the m...

VST/VST3 Plugins blacklisted - can’t use them

Hi folks, I am not able to run any of my VST(3) Plugins bought from Plugin Alliance. They are all blacklisted (shown in red in the Settings dialog), and also multiple clear & rescan does not make them available, as advised in the Merging online help. I am running Pyramix 11.1.4. Plugin Alliance ...

Re: which laptop for pyramix/hapi

Hi Mark and colleagues, I wonder if there has been any update in the past two years regarding Masscore on a laptop. There are new PCI Express adapters released, and I wonder if you've further investigated in this matter. Now with Merging advertising on their website the support of the late MBP model...

Re: New Apple MBP

Many thanks, Frank! That's valuable information, I didn't think of the problematic compatibility issue with the latest Bootcamp version, Win 10 and PMX. Actually, I do have a 2012 MBP, but I feel the horse is getting lame (minor and major hardware problems), the time might be come to shoot it. As sa...

New Apple MBP

Good day, can anyone confirm the compatibility of Pyramix Native with the new, 2016 Mac Book Pro (13")? I am not at all convinced by the paper-esque keyboard of the new MBP, neither do I like the limited interface connectivity. But it is hard to find 2015 Retina, of which I understand that they...

Re: Updated volume in a S/D project?

Thank you very much, Frank. Yes, that's the hard way, I assume... I can imagine one could also use Reconform->Relink to new media and just give a similar name to the newly adjusted files? But however, there's no "Relink to new media" from a source group to a destination group... I will try...

Updated volume in a S/D project?

Sorry, this seems to be a rather basic question, but is there any way to "update" the media in a destination with a new volume? I have been sent a 1st edit for a piano recital, it's a multichannel project. But the editor ignored that two of the mics have been lowered by 3dB in one particul...

Re: Horus and DSD/DXD

Thank you very much for finding the time to report, Mark! Has someone using the latest v8 software ever tried if PMX accepts 128fs DSD from another converter than the Horus? Or is this format limited to the access through Ravenna? Theoretically, it should be possible to record 12 tracks of DSD128 ou...

Re: DXD or DSD that is the question

Morton's/2L's test bench is an excellent idea and very interesting! But be aware that DSD derived from DXD will sound different than a native DSD recording. DXD with 24 Bit might cover well the data rate of DSD, even 128fs DSD. But it is a filtered signal. Further, from my experience, (down)converti...

Re: Horus and DSD/DXD

Mark, did your 32tr DSD128 recording happen? If so, did it work without hassle? If I got you right, it was a single Horus unit via Ravenna to PMX v8? I would love to hear some comments, if possible, as future projects needs to be planned. Still, after all, I agree with you regarding your comments on...

Re: Horus and DSD/DXD

Hi Mark, many thanks for getting back! Your observations are really helpful! We have 3 working Genex 48 channel converters (otherwise known as 9048's) "converters", haha. I like your humor ;-) But like Morten Lindberg from 2L has commented, with Horus, there is a school of thought that DXD...
