Re: DSD Render

Well something is definitely amiss. I finally got around to upgrading my Native rig and when I do a DSD Render of a 3 minute file, it takes about 3 seconds. This is how I thought it should be. The system that won't work is a Masscore 128 rig. For the same 3 minute file, it sits there and says 22 min...

Re: save me?

Which short-cut key protocol are you using?

I usually use the Pro Tools TDM protocol

Re: DSD Render

That is correct Tom. We're just doing 2 channel master tape transfers. All I want to do is break up into individual tracks. Nothing more, nothing less.

I thought this would be a simple thing.

Re: DSD Render

Yes, the new DSD-Render is intended to avoid DXD conversion. It has been adapted from the code used to create DSD-Render mode SACD edit masters. Why it takes so long is beyond me but your results are consistent with everyone else's at this point. Perhaps there are some code optimizations that can b...

DSD Render

What is this for? I am doing tape transfers in DSD64/128fs... really doesn't make any difference what sample rate it is. All I want to do is cut the 30 minute file into separate tracks. No fades, gain changes or anything was done to the file. All I want to do is split/render to another SSD. The old ...

Re: Mytek Stereo192-DSD

Hi Dominique... email sent.

Pyramix 8.1.8 won't even open. It crashes trying to load the ASIO drivers. Same with both units. They both worked with 8.0 for PCM and DSD/DXD

Using Win 7 Pro 64-bit
Intel board and cpu


Thanks,

Re: Mytek Stereo192-DSD

My Playback Designs MPS-5 doesn't work either. Emailed Andreas. Said the Pyramix software is at fault. It would work with 8.0 Not now. I'm dead in the water here....

Re: Mytek Stereo192-DSD

Well found out the Mytek 192/DSD does not work with the latest 8.1.8 version.

Guess new drivers have to be written.

Re: DXD or DSD that is the question

Gentlemen/women. This is probably my suicide as a high-end(?) recording engineer/producer; I can't hear the difference between a 2FS and a 1FS recording. As you guys clearly do this, I would appreciate some advice on what to listen for. Per DSD256fs is mainly for Post Production to avoid the HF bui...

Re: HELP!! - Some vertical menus LARGER than screen

I had this problem on location with a Toshiba laptop (running XP Pro). Needed to change ASIO drives via VS3 and couldn't.

Had to end up connecting a larger monitor to the laptop, as a second monitor, and drag it to there to choose.

Re: Mytek Stereo192-DSD

Hi dears,So, we can say that Pyramix Native supports DSD only to some extend. Since version 7.1, Pyramix Native is able to playback and edit DFF, DSF and WSD files at 64fs and 128fs. But only with the Playback Design MPS-5 DAC those DSD bits are sent as such to the DAC. On other DACs they are conve...

Re: Mytek Stereo192-DSD

For an update, I've finally got 2 DACs working with Native DSD. The Mytek and the Playback Designs MPS-5 using the USB-X module.

Thanks for all the suggestions. Yes, Pyramix Native does work in DSD/DXD

Re: DSD issues, Sonoma files, and connections

I've never used a Mytek DSD converter except the new Stereo192-DSD via USB. I usually use either MADI or SDIF-3 We have a Sonoma system and routinely import the .dff files into Pyramix. You'll have to redo all markers and such though, unless you create an EDL master. Sonoma creates non-interleaved f...

Re: Mytek Stereo192-DSD

Yeah, I just bought the Native rig just for editing/rendering purposes. It makes a great partner to our Masscore machine. If anyone at Merging can confirm this it would be a great help. Selling a DSD license when it doesn't work is not good...
