We can't even believe this is the case, after spending a ton of resources on the new Mac Pro it's sitting in a corner as we have to use a 2012 Cheesegrater to keep working.

Is anyone getting the HDX to work in the new 2019 Mac Pro Tower?

PCIe 1&2, 3&4 are 16x lane with 8 pin connectors for 300w ancillary power supply.

Slots 5&6 are 6 pin ancillary power @75w. Slot 5 is 16x lane, slot 5 is 8x lane. Don't know about putting UAD Octo cards in the rest either.

We can't even get through to UAD and Avid is like trying to talk to the federal government. Customer service is sinking like a stone with these companies when it comes to getting a real tech on the phone. So bad. Please LMK if anyone has any luck, Thanks!

did you purchase from a Dealer ???? or piece meal it yourself ????
