    Newbie question: Will Media Composer output audio to Eclipse 384 via USB?

    I am new to the Community, so please take it easy on me.

    I have used Pro Tools for over a decade, and I currently have Pro Tools HD Native on a Mac Pro (OS Lion). I also currently use FCP X for video. I am considering switching to Media Composer.

    Pro Tools HD Native recognizes the Antelope Eclipse 384 monitor controller and will interface with it via USB (both input/output). I am trying to determine if Media Composer will also output audio to the Eclipse via USB (FCP X will not interface via USB, period).

    If Media Composer will output audio to the Eclipse, this will finalize my decision to make the move to Media Composer. How can I determine if this is the case?

    Thanks!

    You can always download the 30 day free trial version of Composer and find out.

    Yes, a good idea.

    However, I have tried twice to download the demo. Each time, Avid tells me an email has been sent with a link to the download site. Each time, no email. My email address is correct, there is no email in my junk mail folder. Nothing.

    In contrast, I just got an immediate download of Premier Pro and am starting to demo it.

    I'm not sure what I can do to get the Media Composer demo download.

    Go to the Download Center:

    http://www.avid.com/US/support/downloads

    You'll have to log in, and once you do, navigate to the latest version of Media Composer (6.0.1) and download it.  When it asks how you want to activate, select the 30 day trial.

    Thanks, Carl.

    I am closer, at least. I got through creating a download site account (I thought I had every account you could have at Avid), got to Mac Download page, hit download and got the message: "Safari can't find the server cdn.avid.com".

    I have tried several times, same result. I assume it will work eventiually if I keep trying.

    Thanks for the help.

    Suggest you try a different browser than Safari, like Firefox.

    Check your SPAM folder. My download email from Avid ended up there.

    Not sure what I'm looking for, but I don't have anything in my junk folder.

    FYI, the answer to the original question is "Yes", Media Composer will interface via USB with an Antelope 384. I was successful doing it with the demo.
