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 u...

Re: MTssrv - error nonstop

Sounds like either an anti-virus or windows update issue.

Re: How can I find a 64 bit V8 PMX installers ?

Mykerinos only works under 32bit OS..... There were 32 bit versions up to PMX v9.1

Re: MT Security Control panel problem

Stupid questions. What version are you using? Are the keys for that version? (You need new keys for the major versions) Have you done any windows updates? Have you checked the installed updates against the merging blacklist? ( https://confluence.merging.com/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=25755762 ) Di...

Re: VST installations

Have you tried re-installing the plugins? have you checked to see if they are blacklisted at the bottom of the list (They will be in red). Have you done a Full ReScan of the VST & VST3? Also, I would strongly suggest you update the installs and be sure to include the VST3 versions as well as the...

Re: Windows 7 compatibility?

We've been using hotswap drives for production drives for well over 20 years (All the way back in the Sonic days...). Storcase, supermicro, scsi, ide,sata...we have been using raw drive (trayless) for the past 10 years or so. I could never go back. My comment is that you do not need to swap drives t...

Re: Windows 7 compatibility?

Preston, FWIW, I run both Win7 and Win10 LTSB as a dual boot on the same machine (Massocre Extended v11.1.5). I can not deal with the requirement to do updates every quarter as Win10pro requires. LTSB gives a very stripped down experience with no bloat and security only updates. However, I still do ...

Re: PC AudioLabs verses Apple MacBook Pro

We have a bunch of laptops here, but we only use them for editing on the road and occasionally as recorders for small recordings (Less than 16 channels) We've had good luck with the Lenovo W540. They are old, but seem to keep on working Running Win7pro with an M.2 drive as boot and the internal SATA...

Re: Win10 users - don't click on "Check for Updates"

One of the most useful things about WSUSoffline update is that you can create a custom blacklist for updates. All you need to do is copy and paste the merging blacklisted KB numbers from the confluence page into this text file: \wsusoffline\client\ExcludeList.txt Also, please remember to do security...

Re: Win10 users - don't click on "Check for Updates"

All I can say is that we are running 13 systems here and I will not upgrade any of them to windows 10. Windows 7 is rock solid and does not have all the extra bloat and automatic updates. On the systems I did test W10 on, I saw a noticeable increase in system instability and the administrator and pe...

Yes, Skip 11.1.4.

Re: WAV files not seen upon return to PMX

I have found I need to un-tick "preserve non-audio data" when exporting Pyramix rendered waves via RX6, to avoid problems. I also tick "BWF", as I prefer Broadcast wave files. Just wondering out loud....Once you've deleted all the non audio data from a BWF, don't you have a WAV ...

Re: WAV files not seen upon return to PMX

Hello, Yes. Save to different folder. Save to different drive. Make another copy. The file just doesn't get recognized by PMX and the original file remains upon reopen. What was the RX problem - same with PMX to RX and back in or just working in RX? Save a stereo file as a BWAV (without unique ID n...

Re: VST3 in 11.1.4

Just wondering if anyone else is having trouble with VST3 in 11.1.4? I have tried loading some WAVES VST3 plugs and I see load times of nearly 2 minutes. That's with the blue circle spinning on screen. They also slow down the reaction time when switching the mixer between Mix and Config. When I loa...
