    Helix LT...Real ??

    So thats what took 2.20 so long. ;)

  3. LOVIN' IT, FELLAS I actually have an arion in my pedal rig - I cant get very close to that now. EDIT Typo - dunno how that turned into cant. I CAN get close to the rig minus the red ecstasy channel from bogner.

    DAW latency

    What's the latency estimate in logic pro x - preferences / audio You should have better latency or equal - all you did was change interfaces but with a "better" cable technology. Now one can argue better- PS/2 has better system latency than USB but it can't send over 500 mbp/s either.
  5. Quantize, quantize everything.
  6. Sure, but if someone wants to part extra money for the privilege and it's trivial to do, then why not? USB won't be around forever. Eventually everyone will have to understand a new interface. I certainly want a dedicated port for my line6 and the TB port sits there on my mac, unused. TB3 does make it easier though since it shares USB protocols. We'll probably end up getting another Helix at some point but it wont be used as an interface there unless it really makes a particular instrument shine that wouldn't in a dedicated piece. You never know, though. Certain things just sound good together.
  7. You consistently write quite a lot for my paltry one sentence quibs. Where do you get the energy? Anyway, yeah mainly it's the "which way does this sucker go" when trying to plug it in and it taking more than the 2 tries.
  8. To be rid of that blasted connector! Also I hear the advancements in the technology allow for lower signal latency for audio interfaces.
  9. I would have liked a thunderbolt option- other than that I think the Helix over delivers, if anything.
  10. I've found the Helix is super ground hum prone. I have to make doubly sure everything is on the same circuit with it. Which is fine, but a thing.
  11. I just got my dad to try logic and likes it a lot, out of everything the hardest thing is figuring out midi contoller for us. LOL We like it a lot, though. Should have jumped in sooner.
  12. No but it fixed a broken ethernet in a different imac so tried the same thing. It's a 2008 so it was probably going to happen in a few years. It worked so much better from the 10lb of dust I blew out of it, though.
  13. Well just wait until you have to change the cmos battery. I did it this week, actually. https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/iMac+Intel+21.5-Inch+EMC+2308+PRAM+Battery+Replacement/1970
  14. And logic pro X just crashed while doing a basic thing. So do you blame 2 diametric opposite software companies or do you blame the host they're running on?
  15. I just wanna say chatting with you guys got me thinking and I decided to try another DAW software program. Maybe me and Avid don't mix. I've had a pretty good 24 hour experience with logic pro x. Will Helix Native work with this?
  16. That's probably as annoying as message boards jumbling letters around after you've hit post already!
  17. I also have an ROG, and it has never blue-screened on me. That is like saying hey, my Cadillac has never spontaneously exploded so it's very good.
  18. Why don't you go into console.app or windows event viewer and stop trying to convince people that you have a good experience with computers. Your computers crash every second.
  19. Sure, I wonder since on die gpu's are getting better, if the latency can be made up for. And yes, getting protools to run is like getting 2 trained cats to balance on each other. I'm saying why not train one cat instead of 2.
  20. Well it would be insanely cool of them to try making helix plugin run over CUDA or something. A few people have tried reverbs and they work very well they just don't sound great. They understood the concept just not the musical nature. It's a perfect reverb. edit: it had been years since I looked- looks like theres already cuda based plugins. https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/790669/dogotal-sound-processing-with-cuda-cores-/
  21. Until they see something better. All you have to do is A/B it and let them make their decision. Like A/B between the pod and helix. I'm just saying - it would make sense for an audio company to try this. Will it happen? Probably not, like most good things - the pure idea will be corrupted into a circus much like what happened over at Oculus and it'll turn into a fight about money.
  22. Weird, the helix has been absolutely flawless and Computer-based systems have been absolute trash to me. And yes those OS's are designed for billions as general purpose units. And how many people trash Internet Explorer and Safari? One person said something, but that guy is a pathological liar so I disregarded his input.
  23. Oh no, because I don't think Avid would be stupid enough to run away from Microsoft and Apple to end up right at Microsoft again. LOL Now there's no escaping the taint of human imperfection, but we don't need to cake on corruption to the experience too.
  24. Kinda like what the helix is.
  25. All I'm saying is if someone like sony partnered with Avid to make a "console" like system that was dedicated to protools the experience would only get better. I'm saying it is time to raise the bar. Every studio I've ever been to has had multiple crashes on OSX while I was there. It's not just me and I don't know why the narrative here is so aggressive with making it that way. I thought I'd merely address the elephant in the room. These dog-turd operating systems.
