TouchBar & FCPX.... Fail by Bob Woodhead 6 months ago Finally dropped into a store to get hands on the new MBP. Only took a few seconds to realize the TouchBar is almost entirely useless for an editor, all due to one fact - you can't customize it! So it'

Re: low audio from P2 cards by Bob Woodhead 5 years ago Someone at the P2 factory probably wired the memory wrong.... got the hot leads swapped on the audio. Happens all the time. I think if you put the card in backwards it'll fix it.
