    Hi guys I'm having a pro tools problem driving me crazy :mad:

    I'm using win xp(pack 2) with pro tools 6.4 and digi 001.
    There's no problem with digi 001 cause this problem only happens on an especific situation.
    Here's the problem =

    When I open a session of my old pro tools 5.1 in pro tools 6.4, when I record a new track)s) it'srecorded out of sync.
    It's recorded some miliseconds after what I played,I can see its waveform draw out of place.

    Here's what I tried =

    1- Started a new session and imported all 5.1 tracks = the same problem.
    2- Bounced my 5.1 tracks and imported to a new session in 6.4 = the same problem.
    3- Uninstalled pro tools and installed again = the same problem.
    4- Formated my hd and installed everything from the scratch = the same problem.

    What I realized =

    It only happens when I try to use my old tracks with new tracks in 6.4.
    No digi problem cause when I don't use older sessions/tracks it works perfectly, with sound forge and acidpro it's working well too, problem only occurs when I try to use my old tracks with new tracks.

    So do you guys have any idea or saw that already with any other daw?
    Any advice,tip whatever?
    Maybe I need to convert my old session/tracks to something before using with 6.4?
    I googled about it but no answer.
    Thanks :wink:

    Look for the delay compensation plugin on the web. This is a known problem with PT LE until version 9 added it in like every other DAW known to man already had.

    Thanks man ;)
    But I don't think this is the solution.
    I only have that problem when I try to open a 5.1 session with 6.4 and add new tracks.
    If I start a new 6.4 session and record there's no problem so I don't need that plugin,right?
    Like I said seems it's a problem about mixing and old session to a new session :(

    Ok NOW a 6.4 session started doing that too.
    So let me try that plugin.
    Should I put it on a bus and send all tracks to it?

    The weird thing is when I start a new session it works fine but suddently after a few recordings problem starts!

    BTW when I control click on VOLUME and change it to DELAY, it shows 0 so there's no delay.
    Weird,weird and weird lol

    Ok I found the problem.
    When I add a BBE and L3 plugin to master channel, only master channel has a delay.
    So should I put that plugin in my master channel?

    sure sounds like something was originally set at a different tempo or is there a SMPTE doing something. Some kind of a sync or timing ghost. I have PT 5.1 and I do recall this happening. Man, it was so long ago. Its a setting somewhere.

    You should try the DUC and look through the archives when people started upgrading from TDM ( PT 5) to PT 6, its in there.

    Thanks man :)
    Nope it's not a sync problem, it's a rtas delayed problem on master channel.
    I'll try to download that delay plugin but if I can't find it, I'll add those plugins only when mixing.
    The delay occurs only while recording so if I add them only after everything was recorded there'll be no problem..............I guess LOL

    Yes, I believe I recall using a mastering plugin like a Waves Multiband Comp or something in a track that didn't like it there, that was meant to be in the 2-bus. The more I think about it, seems to me the plugin might have been dated too. I always hated that about digi. Every update was a crap shoot. Never the less, Well done!

    Thanks to you guys for trying to help me.
    I love my digis 001.I bought 2 in 1998 and still today not even a single problem.Yep more than 11 years without a problem.
    Cool forum.I'm recording my guitar instrumental album and will try to get an ibanez endorsement.
    BTW do you guys have a link where I could download that delay compensation plugin?
    I'm googleing but no good links.

    You'll have a hard time finding the ADC plugin for PT 6.4. It would have been included in older versions of Complete Production Tool kit. You'll need to search Avid's site to find out which one exactly is compatible. There may also be a third party plugin but the name escapes me at this point. Not sure if any of these are available.

    The Digi User Confrence really is your best resource for these questions. Someone there may even have an old copy that they could sell you.

    So I'll use those plugins only when mixing/mastering.
    Thanks to all of you :)
