    MIxbus 32C didn't show anything for Waves either. It required me to "pretend" I updated the scan paths by opening the dialog box for paths and then clicked "Save". Mixbus 32C then asked if I wanted to rescan. I replied yes. Closed Mixbus and reopened. All was fine.

    I can't even get V12 to show up in any of my DAWS.  I've downloaded and installed them all,
    and they show V12 in my Waves Central, but in the DAW they show V11, and no change at 

    MIxbus 32C didn't show anything for Waves either. It required me to "pretend" I updated the scan paths. Then asked if I wanted to scan. I replied yes. Closed Mixbus and reopened. All was fine.

    So far Studio One Pro, CbB, Reaper, ProTools, Cubase and Digital Performer also now scanned and recognized V12, with nothing more than opening them.

    Yet to go/scan on PC DAWs: Reason 11, Samplitude, Acid Pro and MIxcraft.

    Then the editors: Wavelab and  Soundforge.

    Then I'll complete the Mac installed DAWs.

  3. On my windows machine the resizing of one test (Abbey Road Chambers) was great. 200% was nearly crystal clear. 75% was too small (DUH!). This was in Studio One Pro V5. 

    In CbB 200% was ever so slightly fuzzy, but workable for me.

  4. In a way this seems a little like Sonarworks where they can tune the EQ curve to your specific set of cans to get a "flat" response. Only Slate is calling  it a "studio" for a flat response.

    Am I missing something?


  5. I have a PC I7-2600K based with 32GB of RAM (soon to be replaced with I9-10900K based components and 128GB of RAM with Thunderbolt 3).

    I also have a 2013 MacBook Pro with a I7 Quad core and 16GB of RAM.

    I have installed all my cross platform DAWs on both (Studio One 5, Reaper 6, Mixbus 32C v6, ProTools Pro 2020, Digital Performer 10, Cubase 10.5, Reason 11.

    I have additionally installed Logic X on my Mac. I use core audio on the Mac but I have a spare Presonus AudioBox USB 96, just in case.

    I have additionally installed on my PC CbB, Samplitude X5 Suite, Mixcraft Pro 9 and Acid Pro 9. I use an RME UFX on the PC.

    I  also have all my libraries and all VST/VSTi programs installed on both machines.

    I don't record on my Mac. I only record on the PC. Both machines are on opposite sides of the room.

    So far I'd say that if a project runs on the PC (of the cross platforms DAWs) it also runs perfectly on the Mac.

    I recently tried a test of an exceptionally large project (100 tracks and a boatload of plugs) from a tutorial on both the Mac and the PC. Read about it and the results HERE. Bottom line with a few minor tweaks Reaper on the Mac was the "winner" in that limited test case scenario. Probably the PC could have been tied if I made the same/similar tweaks there.

    My Mac is not as bad as some make them out to be. Catalina caused some temporary grief, but for now that is in the past.

    My conclusion: Neither is better or worse than the other. If money were no object I'm not entirely sure what I would do since both Top End systems would probably handle my fairly modest needs. I'm usually at the 40-50 tracks range with a fair dose of VSTs and maybe some Soft Synths too.
