TDM for LE? yahoo!

I heard that if I buy the TDM version of AC-2 analog channel (McDsp) that I can use it in LE. What other TDM plugs work this way? I might buy an HD rig one day when my mixing and expertise justifies the expense. I would like to buy as little plug-ins that are only compatible with LE if I plan to one day upgrade.

i think most TDM plugins will run as RTAS in PT LE.

Not all TDM plugs will run in RTAS. I don't have a specific list but I think plugins like Drawmer Dynamics, Echofarm, Ampfarm and ReVibe will only run in TDM. I'm sure there are others. Check the Digidesign.com website and search for plugins that you would want to use in RTAS that you are using in TDM. They have a chart for each plugin that show whats compatible

thanks addynicky. I went to the compatibilty page... all I could see, there was a TDM like at AMPFARM like you said and other plugs like the analog channel never had a TDM so it must be PT LE compatible. My question, If I buy the TDM analog channel plugs now to run on PT LE, when I get a HD system, will I notice a huge difference with the same TDM version of analog channel on the HD system?

In other words, besides HD's special dsp card, higher 192kbs....how will the TDM analog channel plug sound different than when it is used on my PT LE system?

Is there a difference?

Guys.... should I start buying TDM plugs now ( ex: waves renn bundle, or the ssl)
use them in PT LE until I eventually buy HD. Or should I buy the PT LE versions and then upgrade?????

Start shopping and you'll see some plug ins are TDM/LE and some are TDM only. This should simplify yer choice(s).

If you don't wanna wait you should just buy a HD setup now and be done with it.
