Pre-Sales Questions » Want to buy a 16.4.2AI but I need some answers » Go to message
Hi, I have an Ai24... it works ~ with the 400/800 expansion card but I know I couldn't get smaart to work, or other processor intensive tasks...I have upgraded my processor, SSD and ram and haven't re-tested, but I suspet the limitation is the stream...

Well, some get offended if we don't provide the answers in great detail... some want the answers with no effort on their part... My feeling is, they don't learn if they don't put in the effort, that said...

I use 5400 RPM drives successfully with my Sl 16 and even the Ai 24, BUT, as the track count increases and you start demanding more and more performance, the 5400 will start to give you trouble... Some rigs, for whatever reason, have issues with 5400 RPM drives.. all are not created equal...

1. No one has every computer to try every permutation, therefore if minimum specs are met it should function, but may not offer any real performance, and as the track count and processing demands increase you will be limited in what you can do...Myself, I like to run Capture, S1, UC, SMAART, run a DJ program for break music, surf the net, even run the full blown SMAART and sometimes Soundforge to get a separate board mix.. all at the same time...That won't happen with minimum specs...

2. see #1

3. See the second sentence...again, the more tracks the poorer the performance...

4. The bigger the screen the better, or you'll end up scrolling around a LOT..

5. anti glare is better.. of course...

6. KB article...

7. future capability is always advisable...see hard drives and processor speed...

8. for what?

9. hmmm... not necessary unless you need one...

10. all Presonus gear works to specs with USB 2.0, the new USB 3.0 ports are problematic only with The Audiobox line at this time...

11. You'll ONLY get FW 400 speed with a 400/800 card and not all of the features will work (like SMAART) with the Ai24. What chipset problem are you referring to? There is an issue with USB devices...

12..right...

Personally, I think adding the other mixer to the setup would degrade the sound significantly..you should be fine doing as you said, using the channels of the mixer 13-24. As for outboard processors, I use them if the efx are better than what is on the board. For instance, the Sl/Ai mixers don't have chorus, or super deep verbs.

The Audiobox USB is a port specific device, if you are not 100% sure you plugged into the SAME port you installed on, you need to uninstall and re-install the drivers (assuming PC) ...

Pre-Sales Questions » FaderPort with Cubase » Go to message
That is what the Faderport is designed to do, the Faderport is a CONTROLLER though and if your trying to "control" the fader port externally, that is not a supported function...

There are others that have used Logic to program other functions with the Faderport... but support cannot help here.

This document explains the supported functions...
