imaging colapsing on pt 9 le

hey,

just curious if anyone else has noticed this. Seems that the imaging in pt9 le starts to collapse a bit with the more tracks/plugins you use. I am use to working on tdm systems and am just giving the le thing a whirl. My ears could be tired as it has been a long day but i swear it seems that the harder you hit the cpu on a native pt system something starts to fold.

could just be me....any thoughts?

1 - there's no PT9 LE, wish people would stop using this as a term - it just gets confusing!

2 - nope, I've not noticed that at all. You're using different converters,right? In a different environment? That's much more likely to have an effect on what you're hearing. If you gain stage properly, the 2 engines SHOULD (and in simplistic terms at least have been proved to) produce identical results.

If anything I've found the mixes I've done in 9 sound better... delay compensation may have a lot to do with that though...

Tony Sheppard mentioned to me something about pt native not sounding as good as pt hd when you really start to push it hard. this was back when there was a big debate over whether to keep tdm or ditch ti for native...which i am still on the fence.

you are right though...i am in a foreign studio...matter of fact in a foreign country (your neck of the woods psyco) using aura lynx and dyn audios....i'm use to ns 10 with a bryston 4b and digi 192 clocked by big ben.

i did seem that something changed them harder i pushed the system though... but it really just could be me.

haha which studio are you in?

I don't know about that - if anything, Native should sound more "true" when pushed because of the floating point headroom. But who knows if "better" is the same thing as "true".

Are you working ITB totally?
