Re: One instance of PMX Already Running

Hi Frank,
What you say is true, and good advice. But this can happen with a simple 'quit' of PMX (where it appear to have shut correctly), not necessarily the result of a crash. And in that instance it's really quite annoying!

Re: One instance of PMX Already Running

This has been an intermittent issue I've experienced from v5 upwards - sometimes it just doesn't seem to quit cleanly, and is still 'running' in the background, so to boot again it is necessary to use Task manager to kill the application / process first.

Re: Background recorder

I get the idea of running a background recorder in mp3 though. Let's say you're running an 8- or 12- track session at 96k; no plugins. That's a very small processor load for a good modern machine. Running a background recorder or second (internal) machine as stereo mp3 should be more than possible i...

Re: Reordering Track Groups in Timeline

For the work I do, I'd agree - a small thing but a useful one. However, might it pose a problem for others? For those of us who might have two or three 'blocks' of tracks, particularly in an S/D environment, and want to shunt them around easily, fine. But what about folk who may group and re-group t...

Re: Pyramix X Clip Render troubles

I've just re-read your question(s). (1) I don't think the PMX render function to mp3 has ever worked a >48k. So at 96k, use album publishing. Or render as PMF / WAV, whatever; SRC to 44k1 / 48k, and then render as MP3. A bore, I know. (2) I thought the render / split by groups had always worked that...

Re: Headphones

HD650 is pretty common, so are the HD600 Concur. Certainly in the classical sphere, HD600's I would consider a 'standard', with a smattering of HD650. Of course there are the HD800 if you are feeling flush, but a spare cable for those (if you take them on session and artist have a tendency to trip ...

Re: Renovator for noise elimination

Hi Paul, FWIW, I find ReNOVAtor an excellent tool for working on classical music - I've used it to take out thousands of noises over a few years, and wouldn't be without it. (I remember being reluctant to make the investment years ago, but having it in the workflow it can be very useful; if I was st...

Re: Pyramix X Clip Render troubles

Do your Pyramix files have "unique file identifier" turned off? If the media name and the desired rendered media name (i.e. "Take 001" and "Take 001") are identical then PMX has had issues creating the new file. (I vaguely recall a time when it would not only abort the ...

Re: Album Publishing still frustrating

Agreed, if you require metadata. But if you need to quickly turn out masses of takes as WAV files (i.e. for an artist or non-pyramix-based producer to take away and listen to), then you probably don't need to embed any metadata, you just need a large number of files with the right filenames. In this...

Re: Album Publishing still frustrating

Why use album publishing at all? On the assumption that: - as well as multitrack you laid down a stereo session mix - each clip is already named the take name from the session (e.g. "Take 001") Simply: 1. delete all tracks except the stereo session mix 2. select all 3. Render, "split ...

Re: Option to Overwrite Destination File on Mixdown

Hi Frank - not quite! Merging failed to implement the most basic of file safety precautions - an "Undo" on hitting "Delete Take (Esc)" after recording!!! I've seen it done in a live situation where the keyboard is placed somewhere inconvenient... reach up, hit stop, then reach to...

Re: Destination always central

As Frank says, "Keep Cursor" and "Free Zoom" are your friends here. You may prefer to enable "Free Zoom"only on all source groups, leaving the destination to respond only to the overall project zoom commands. This is effectively a zoom control for only the Destination t...

Re: difference general rehearsal - live takes - mixer ?

Hi both, Frank - following your suggestion of rendering the rehearsal material first to give it it's new acoustic, may I suggest another way of achieving that? - Place your concert media in one directory, and rehearsal media in another. - make your edit, into one, single set of 8-tracks - now 'unmou...

Re: Mobile control room work

P.S. - with the remote, it will also handle two colours of "red light", and easy switching between two monitoring sources for your CR loudspeakers or headphones, etc.

Have you considered DirectOut's Producer.Com ? http://www.directout.eu/en/products/producer.com.html Can be used with Ravenna, I believe. Along with the remote control, would give you - talkback mic input and control (to go to loudspeakers in the live area) - two telephone loops (one for the conduct...
