Hi Christian

No, it's not normal. Use Automation -> Automation Tracks -> Clean up all Tracks.

Benoit Graham Patten specs max 300m for the AES3id standard, which defines the conversion from balanced 110 ohm AES3 signals to unbalanced 75 ohm coax and backwards. See http://www.gpsys.com/ -> accessories for their passive converters. Check out also Canare (http://www.canare.com), another manufact...

Cables are not as mysterious as hi-end audio dealers usually want us cause to believe. Let's take the engineering (Dilbert's) approach. If you want to transmit a squarewave signal, you'd require a bandwidth of 5...10 times higher than the symbolrate. In our case that's about 250...500 kHz. Cables fo...

It stands for In Place, meaning stereo send is according to the pan position of the strip. Very useful to feed true stereo reverbs for natural depth and position of the source in the reverb image.

Enjoy! Gabriel

Hi Mark 100% DSP load has to be avoided in any case (interruptions, clicks in audio). Even 98% is pretty close and doesn't provide a lot of safety margin. I know, I'm still repeating, but I'd suggest to use an external reverb. You can cover several channels with free DSP power of one reverb not runn...

Works also fine here. But maybe the clip based normalization is not of highest precision, since it deals with samples, not with filtered waveform. However I'd suggest to use quick convert and add some extra margin for safety and following dithering/noiseshaping.

Cheers

Recently added a TC Reverb 4000 to extend Pyramix: sounds great, fits perfectly into DAW environment (ADAT I/O), can be operated thru USB by TC Icon remote control SW and best of all, it doesn't load Mykerinos DSP additionally!

Automation release mode

I'm still missing the previous automation release mode of PMX2.0, which wrote "to next automation point". Since last AES meeting in Lausanne, which was visited obviously by a lot of Pyramix users, I know there are others who would welcome that function next to "write to end" and "auto release". :win...

You can switch off 100% CPU usage if you like. But I have never noticed an advantage, if idle thread was switched off. ...Merging has identified the cause of possible crashes and DSP losses on certain specific PC systems. These seem to be related to the use of PCI “special cycles” by certain motherb...

Sorry, don't know P-mix. He was running Nuendo on his Dell machine. 512MB RAM should be adequate for the next two years if you don't use dtp programs :wink:

Hi Joe, Building your own workstation is in almost any case not the most cost effective way. But one important advantage is, you're free to choose the motherboard. When I built my WS, a friend of mine bought one from Dell with similar performance and keyfeatures. My impression was: good quality and ...

Another Kingdom for correct VU meter ballistics

After years goggling on PPM meters only, I re-descovered the good old VU meters, which are quite useful for loudness, if implemented with correct ballistics. I've found following IEEE/EBU specs: VU Response time: 300 ms (to 99%) Integration time: 150 ms Return time: 300 ms Try to adjust the internal...

Noise and temperature was an issue for a long time, but now it's solved successfully for my Pyramix VS. Follow this 3-point strategy: - use a good compromise between performance and power dissipation when building your workstation - use external cases for your fast SCSI drives or IDE RAID and locate...

Thanks Frederik and Steve! Very old wishes. I never understood, how adding markers while recording or pre-editing could make sense, if you loose their (time-) information after editing.

For short term backup, IDE is very fast and cheap. For archiving purposes of IDE drives, I'm still using that silly old tape stuff: DDS-4 (40 GB DAT) is small, cost effective and has a reasonable transfer rate. If you never use it to copy just single files, it's quite satisfying. :wink:
