Lots of Nuendo editing features finally making it to PT!

The much-needed-much-improved audiosuite processing is a godsend for people like me who have to do lots of offline processing in a mix (think multiple passes of iZotope RX2 on the 'D' algorithm, for example).

Clip gain is such a timesaver in Nuendo it's not even funny, so great to see this feature in PT as well. I can knock up a very rough mix without even touching a fader...

Will be interesting to see if there are any new hardware solutions... better TDM cards for HD?

The rumour is too that ReVibe may be RTAS now as it's seen running in the demo and I think they're on HD-Native... that would be super cool.

Anyway, bring it on! Avid's doing good stuff these days...

Maybe not just ReVibe, but Impact too...? Free?

Thatís interesting speculative news provided Avid donít rejig the pricing structure to cover the inclusions, it could save folks a few bob. I use the SSL collections G-Master for buss compression but like always each new iteration is another xxx pounds out of my piggy bank that could have been used elsewhere.

Some big clues here:

New AAX format for plug-ins - native and/or DSP based?

All will be revealed later tonight... (very late in the UK!)

Yikes there are a lot of angry people on the internet today about this...!

Feature set: not bad, possibly not worthy of a dot-zero upgrade - maybe a dot-five?

New hardware: good stuff, seem reasonably priced considering how much power you get, but the AAX ecosystem is nascent - I wonder how long it will be before all the plug-in developers are on board?

Upgrade prices: yipes. TDM users are not happy to pay $1k for the last version of the software they will be able to use, and I can't blame them! The 'native' pricing is a little keener but still seems a bit high considering that a year ago we paid about the same amount to go to version 9.

The problem is, what will high-end studio owners turn to instead? They'll almost have no choice but to give in and crossgrade (which, with the $1k upgrade price is probably what Avid is gunning them to do...)

Early indications too is that AAX upgrades/crossgrades/side-grades/whatever you want to call them will NOT be free (Cytomic is the first company to announce pricing - they want $99). So if you have a lot of plug-ins it could get even spendier to stay with the bleeding edge. That's not very cool.

My guess? We won't move at all. It's rare for high enders to be early adopters too. I'm still on 7.4 and I'm not unusual. I'm just on the cusp of moving to PT9 but, tbh, as I'm more of a hardware guy than a plugin guy I dont actually feel the need to have more processing power than HD3 already gives me. the post guys on the other hand...

No steeper than hd ever was.

So what's the deal on crossgrades? Presumably you can still use 3rd party I/o?

Sorry Trev, my question was rhetorical - I also don't think anyone's going to jump ship and that's the point. There's no low latency tracking alternative. You're right about post guys loving it though - but I don't imagine uptake will be very strong until the AAX ecosystem is developed and stable.

Not sure about the converter situation, but 10 is going to be the last release to support the old Avid/Digidesign boxes (192, 96 etc). I'm sure 3rd party box makers will be doing everything they can to make their stuff work - but - big but - at the moment anyway, as I understand it you *must* buy Avid converters with a new HDX system. The cards aren't available separately.

And re the price, HDX is actually cheaper than HD if you compare the power on a like-for-like basis. But the software upgrade prices are far dearer than they've ever been!

I'm more than likely gonna stay with PT8. I was going to go native with 9 so that the lad could use with his set up then this 10 comes along at stupid money. As for the AAX tech its too early in the life cycle to be worth the extra couple hundred quid and even at that PT itself is still not 64bit but at least they have began to address the situation.

I'm hoping some of the PT9 boxed upgrades get sold off cheap... if so, I'll buy one to upgrade my PT8 and actually be able to use PT with my full audio system on the odd occasion I used it to import a session fro PT into Cubase.

I still think that HD need's to be more affordable. I know that 7K isn't 15K but that is still a hunk of cash either way.



If I told my wife I've just spent 7K on some audio equipment I would be a dead man.

Really though, do you need HDX? It may be a nice 'to have' but it's priced to be affordable for high end commercial studios, post houses etc and tbh, if they can't afford it then they are probably no longer viable as businesses anyway. HD Native should provide all the features most music studios would want. Unless you are running a desk and lots of outboard Native should really be fine.
