Pro Tools Ill Support: Opcode has received a number of calls from Studio Vision customers using Session 8 or the new Pro Tools III, so it’s likely that you will also.
Here is some helpful info on running Pro Tools Ill with Studio Vision.
Studio Vision will recognize Pro Tools Ill as a Session-8. As a result, the types of quirks that occur with Session-8 may occur with the Pro Tools Ill and Studio Vision. These include occasional output assignment problems (Audio switching outputs) and volume problem, (Audio playing back softer than monitored at time of recording).
Be sure the customer is using the 882 io card. Studio Vision does not address the 888 yet.
Side note: One customer appeared to have more success with later versions DAE, such as 1.1.3. According to Digi. the latest version is 1.3.2. Studio Vision currently ships with DAE 1. 1. 2.
You guessed it. There is now (finally) a Vision demo disk. It just like Vision in every way except that it does not save or print. It also is not copy protected so you may feel free to copy and distribute it freely. Give it to people interested in taking Vision home
a test drive. You can get them free with any order or just give me a call.
Latest Vision Versions
Vision, Studio Vision Pro and Studio Vision AV are at version 2.0.8. Any customer buying an earlier version from you will automatically get the latest version from Opcode when they send-in the registration card.
