Hi there,

Just wondering if there would be such a thing as a grace period for those who have recently purchased the regular channelstrip plugin and are looking to upgrade to the new AAX version?

Considering the upgrade to PT 10 but not sure how much it's going to cost me in total if I then have to upgrade every plug in I have! I realise that rtas is still supported for now but that won't last forever...

Kind regards,

Sean.

Hi Sean,
We'll be announcing pricing info when the AAX plug-ins are ready to ship. There will be a grace period for recent purchases, as well as discounted upgrades.

Thanks Allen,

Bit the bullet and upgraded to PT 10 (at a cost), it appears to be very stable, however, I can't believe I still have to use mutetone!!!

Looking forward to the new plugs...

Cheers, Sean.

You shouldn't have to; check the "Auto Input Monitoring" section on page 456 of the manual.

I haven't had a chance to play with it yet, but one of Avid's big talking points for 10 is that software monitoring can be defeated when using third party hardware (like ours).

bought the upgrade to the new AAX CS last night and installed it this morning. loaded up one of my mixes that I had the older version of C/S on. when I turned the lowest EQ on I could hear a subtle distortion in the sound of the bass guitar. when I turned the knob I got all kinds of noise and distortion. not so good...

I'm running PT 10.1 on a 8 core Mac 3GHz with 10 gig of RAM on OS 10.6.8

the other thing in this is that whenever the graphic window on the right is open I run out of CPU power. this did not happen with the previous iteration. it really seems as if the new version runs a heavier CPU load. that doesn't make me happy!

is anyone following any of this stuff? I bought this upgrade, but it is unusable in Protools 10.1 on a relativily high end Mac Pro! the old version had no issues.

Yes, we are following this.

We may have resolved the issues you are discussing, but we don't have enough info about the problems you have encountered.

The forums are not for support; they are for user discussion. Please open a support ticket so we can get more details about the issues you have encountered and work with you to determine if we have resolved them.

MH Support Portal

If, by "run out of CPU power", you mean that you get a CPU overload, or CPU spiking or a DAE error, this is likely due to a problem with the Graphics SDK and DAE - it is likely due to a bug in the OS, but we believe that we have worked around it for the next release which is being tested now. If that is NOT what you meant by "run out of CPU power", definitely open a ticket with support so that we can determine what is happening.

Best regards,

B.J. Buchalter
