Topic: rendering files in pro tools larger than 2GB @24/96K

This is a limitation of a lot of 32 bit apps, not just protools specifically. For instance, DP has problems with OMF's bigger than 2 Gig. It is a big gripe amongst PT users though, especially those that do post.

The only workaround is splitting the files at sensible points.

That's exactly what I was doing wrong. Hitting the shift key! Isn't that how it used to be with Pro Tools? when did it change? from my failing memory, PT has always been cmd+space for record, space for playback. if you have the keypad configured as transport controls you can hit "3" to initiate rec...

In order to use the MH as a front end, you would need the 002 or 003. An 002 that's being clocked from the MH via spdif (or vice versa, which I would prefer) might be the ticket.

DOUBLE speed? Is it double pitch as well? make sure you're not hitting shift, apple, space to record. that's half speed recording meaning normal playback will sound like it's double speed. if your interface is being clocked externally, make sure you're not getting sync at like 88.1k or something. Ha...

you can't run protools without a digidesign or m-audio audio interface. Pro Tools software is included with digidesign interfaces and the purchase of Pro Tools M-powered is required to run protools on an approved M-audio interface.

Replies: 4
Views: 2170

the x-form plug can do things that can be cumbersome using the track based elastic audio feature though. for instance, if you want to change pitch over time on a single track (like a record stop effect) it's cumbersome using elastic audio. you have to elasticize the entire track, isolate the region ...

A 003 and your MacPro would be a great combination. +1 as you have a MH2882 as well. You could use the 2882 in standalone as a high end converter and feed lightpipe to the 003. with the wordclock input on the 003, the sync would be sample accurate to boot. For the most flexibility at the lowest pri...

1- Yes

2- PT 8 Mpowered will most probably work with with your solo. Version upgrades traditionally have been $75 regardless of the version you are upgrading from. With all of the new additions to PT8 in terms of plugins and instruments, it may be more but not by much I would imagine.

From my amateur point of view i would hazard a guess that 64 bit would allow room for a lower bottom end at the very least, not quite. frequency is more a variable of the sampling rate than the bit depth. and a lot of the plugs that come standarrd with Sonar are made 64 bit by cakewalk themselves a...

TDM is 24 bit fixed because it's based on the DSP chips on the HD cards. all popular native applications on the mac are 32 bit float with the potential to be 64 bit float. However, I don't believe any practical audio application needs more than 144 db of dynamic range. The I/O on maybe 90% of the in...

Marc is partially right. HD hardware use DAE exclusively for ProTools and are not entirely core audio compliant. I don't have any experience with screen sharing on Leopard yet, but the latest LE interfaces for pro-tools (Mbox2, Mbox2 Pro and Digi003) are core audio compliant (eg. they can be control...

I think you're talking about the mbox2 pro, with the phono inputs. Phono inputs only should get signal from a turntable for various reasons. Short answer is, the mbox2 family are core audio compliant so they'll show up as I/O sources in audio midi setup and in the sound control panel. So, to answer ...
