Pyramix 11, no PMF mixdown?

Postby SebNat » Tue Jan 30, 2018 19:00

Hi there,
we recently upgraded all our systems to Pyramix 11.0.5.
Am I missing something or is it not possible to do a mixdown using the pmf-format anymore?
The option doesn't show up in the mixdown window. Only Wav, AIFF, etc. is available...

It is in the release notes:

PMF File format has been removed from the available Mixdown formats as of Pyramix v11 due to compliance issues. As of Pyramix v11 our recommendations are:  For Recording: PMF remains recommended for PCM use and DSDIFF for DSD Records Note: MTFF is currently not recommended in recording since it does not yet have a Media Recoverer tool in case of a record corruption  For Mixdown: MTFF is recommended (for sharing in a multiple Pyramix environment)  For Album Publishing: Users can choose the formats of their choice, used through the Digital Release processing for better signal flow  For Render: We recommend rendering in the original format or to PMF or MTFF. The DSDIFF is not recommended.  Algorithmix DeNoiser and DeScratcher remain
