just dont know if i can commit FX recording, Is it that bad to do it after? i mean in PT as any other Plug in? the card would work with the latency and you can hear
everything else form your track playing back fine? Sorry i just dont know how does it work exactly in that situation... :/
The clips people have post sound amazing and i really like how it sounds.
Hi and welcome,
honestly I think you are worrying about nothing, don't worry about console you don't need to use it for plugs at all or to record other than using its pres.
Console is just a gui in front of your daw, yes it looks cool but i hardly use it.
If you are recording a virtual instrument you don't even use Console, you just use your daw.
If load plugs in your daw they are always saved exactly as you left them. You can do instant recall of plugs in Console to re-track, but I use my daw for mixing.
To record real instruments or voice , again you do not have to use the Console for plugs either, unless you want to monitor with them
I use Console strictly to control the UA's pres, Di inputs or inputs 5-8. Mostly I am just using 1 or 2 of the pres or putting an OB pre into line 5-8.
I have no latency problems with protools , just mute one or the other of the input tracks in console or the daw channel in protools. I normally mute the daw channel when recording to that channel.
I have had trouble with latency when I was recording vi drums to a heavily processed set of bed tracks and the work around is as I described it in my earlier post.
I can understand if you have a lot of vi's and for some reason need quite flexible routing the apollo may not be best for that.
But what I didn't understand was why go out of your daw once you are in it other than for OB mastering ? Once inside protools you can set your session mixing up pretty well anyway you want.
I think you would be perfectly happy with Apollo. YOu need to use Ua plugs to capitalize on that but they are regularly on sale and they are giving current purchasers almost a complete set of plugs; 2 verb, the 1176 origin comp, the neve channel strip(expander, gate, 4 band eq, hi and low pass filters) and the studer tape emulation, which is a very powerful tool.
Its your decision but I believe the current deal goes only for a few months. They are basically giving you back about $1- 1500 in free plugs and freebies.
@IAJG where is the clip you need to attach and load, underneath your input screen !
