Maybe it's the engineering? Ya think??
And HDX isn't just about DSP.
Discount if you like Drew , but until some plugins show up for HDX, its only (empty) DSP to me,
I know, I know, 64bit mix engine, 32 bit float, etc .. its sooo much more than dsp,
ok I agree, but sonically native now sounds as good or better, ( so yeah, engineering, I think?) you got me on that one, it's always engineering.
Anyway, when I hear some better HDX mixes or some plugs show up, I'll adjust my position. The only reason I've been hanging around these sites lately is to see how HDX is shaping up, I like the OP's rig, looks promising, and for the record, I still prefer my HD3 rig, but that's not my point.
When you have a moment, post a link to some great HDX mixes that are sonically better than what can be done in native, but make sure it's not the Alecia Keys session used at the HDX launch, because that wasn't recorded or mixed in HDX, that was just more smoke and mirrors from Avid,
compare that to the launch of the HD system,
from what I remember the 192k session from that launch was an actual recorded and mixed HD session and was sonically superior to anything I had previously heard from a protools rig.
I'm not trying to be overly critical of Avid or any ones opinion , just stating my mine.
It may be crazy to you, but a pair of barefoots and a protools rig doesn't make your opinion the only valid one (nice rig though...)
Now back to my TDM mix
