Listen up, folks! This week, SonicScoop’s Input/Output hosts, Geoff Sanoff and Eli Janney took to the airwaves to offer a comprehensive review of ProTools 10, handing the mic over to Avid’s Tony Cariddi for a Q&A on the new features and a sneak peek of what is to come.
In the first segment of the two-part podcast, the guys present a great layout of who should upgrade to Pro Tools 10 and why - and let me tell you they really get into it. With Pro Tools meaning so many things to so many different people, Eli and Goeff note that it can be tough to figure out when it's important to upgrade. After looking at all the sides, they conclude that's it's defintiely "a worthy upgrade.” We are stoked that they note the benefits of clip gain, real-time fades, longer delay compensation and the new extended disk cache, which Goeff notes yielded a noticable bump in performance on his HD Natvie system. The guys summarize their thoughts quite simply: “[ProTools] sounds better and it works better and that’s the main thing.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
Tony Cariddi jumps in the mix on the second installment of the podcast giving Geoff and Eli some insights to the future of Pro Tools. He hints that “there is another update coming very soon that is going to launch a whole other slew of plug-ins” (which we all know by now was the Pro Tools 10.2 launch with it's slew of additional AAX plug-ins) and points out that the ability to add AAX plug-in integration was frankly “the whole intention of the architecture behind Pro Tools 10.”
We love hearing Avid on the air (and it sounds like Tony Cariddi loves being on it too.) Tune into the full podcast over at SonicScoop and let us know what you think. Thanks for inviting us on the show, Eli and Geoff - we hope to be back soon!
