That said, I'm using Pyramix on location. I'd be happy to say a few things about that, if anyone's interested.


Please do Mark - I use Pyramix in studio but we run it on a server platform with a RAID array.  It's very solid but not very portable...  though it's been done.

What is your hardware/platform setup, how have you portable-ized it, what drive configuration...  A/D...  etc. ?

Howdy - I did try and point out that there are and have been issues with the MIO stuff & I have had my frustrations in the past, that having said - it is sure far more stable now with the new drivers.  

I was almost to the point myself of abandoning the platform & changing to digi 002. But now its gotten better,

The notion of releasing stuff on the market thats unfinished - agreed there.

I think the scoop is that its one guy doing all the programming & he is apparently a computer genius / PHD - only that it turned out to be far too big of a job for one person to get the code happening & keep up with new os like OS X etc, various software revisions etc. Whereas a company like Digidesign probably has dozens of programmers sorting it out day in day out.

As for the brainwashed - perhaps that is too strong of a word Smile.
What  I think is most MIO owners take it all in stride / with a grain of salt,  and choose to deal with the strange quirks, company denials of reality and workarounds which everyone is aware of -  for the good sound of the units.

Thats the basic scoop - is that the sound is great & a good deal for the money for what you get IMO eg: the basic 2882 - 8 in/out model.

Once again - if you are doing live recordings  or project studio action - its worth checking out.

If you are a pro studio / 24 hours a day kind of operation it may not be the thing due to bugs & reliability, but then those folks would be going for PT HD anyway.

Oops sorry for the double post - I get that using Mac Safari for some reason..

Anyway - you can check out the MIO archives / mailing list at:

http://mail.music.vt.edu/mailman/listinfo/mobileio



BTW - MIO woudn't be the 1st to rush a semi-complete product onto the market for business reasons, especially in this computer age Smile

Not that its an excuse - but seems an endemic practice in the audio / software / PC biz.

Cheers,

Erik's manner of post aside, I do really appreciate both sides of the coin. It's always better to know of the quirks going into it rather finding out later on. I've postponed an interface purchase for a while to do a little more research and pay off some other gear. Pyramix live? Please do let us in on that.

Thanks again
