It is with a non heavy heart and CPU Usage that I proudly leave the world that is 32 bit architecture and move into the land of bigger highways for information, a faster engine to fly down said highways, and of course easier handling. Pro Tools 10 was a step in the right direction and definitely a good swan song to the 192 I/0 and now legacy components of the non HDX Variety. Of course Avid will support them for a while and they will still function just as they did. So to all I’m leaving behind, I bid you good luck in all of your travels, Enjoy all of those beloved RTAS Plugins I so painfully leave behind, and continue making great music.
