1 Introduction
Thank you for your V1 purchase. The V1 is a random access video recorder that uses magnetic
drives (hard drives) as a recording medium.
To record video on a hard drive it should be digitized which means that the analog video information
must be converted to a digital data stream.
The V1 line of products includes uncompressed video recorders (8 and 10 bit encoding) and
compressed video recorders, the trade off is between storage requirement and video quality.
Hopefully this introduction explains to the reader the basic technical principles of digital video disk
recording.
1.1 V1 Uncompressed HD
The V1-UHD and V1-UHD/LE (for HDTV video) series records the video directly on the hard drive
without the use of compression. The value priced V1-UHD/LE supports 8bit HD video recording
only.
1.2 V1 Compressed HD: JPEG2000
Doremi’s V1-HD product line uses JPEG2000 video compression.
1.3 The CBS Algorithm
The V1 uses a constant block size (CBS) algorithm. With traditional compression algorithms,
depending on video complexity, the size of each compression field can vary thus requiring
maintaining a list to indicate the start of each field on the drive. With CBS all fields have the same
maximum size. Consequently, CBS does not require maintaining a list indicating the start of each
field because they are all the same size. This results in a more reliable video recorder with faster
video access and frame accurate recording.
1.4 Audio and Time Code
In addition to the video, and regardless of the compression ratio used, the V1 records 2, 4, 6 or 8
tracks of uncompressed audio (sampled at 48Khz). It also records the LTC and digital-VITC
timecodes.

5.1 Overview: V1-HD vs V1-UHD
Figure 15: V1-UHD and V1-UHD/LE Overview
The V1-UHD offers the superior resolution of high definition video in a compact full featured disk
recorder. Instant access to video, uncompressed recording and networkable operation make the V1UHD the ideal multi-format recorder. The V1-UHD is only three rack units high and is available with
fixed or hot swappable internal drives. An external RAID5 chassis is also available.
The V1-UHD records high definition serial digital video (HD-SDI) and standard definition SDI video.
Frame accurate control via RS-422 makes the V1-UHD a drop-in replacement for any HD video tape
recorder. The available Gigabit Ethernet interface is ideal for fast network transfer of still image and
movie files to/form graphics and editing workstations.
The V1-UHD/LE is a value version of the V1-UHD with two removable hot-swap drives. The V1UHD/LE only supports 8bit HD-SDI recording. SD video can be recorded at 10bit or 8bit.
Figure 16: V1-HD Overview

6 Recording and Playback
6.1 Using the V1 Multi-File System
6.1.1 The Default File
The V1 will always contain one default file. The primary purpose of the default file is to allow
operation without using files, thereby maintaining compatibility with existing video tape recorders.
The default file will not be included in the list of available files maintained by the V1, and will not be
returned when a list of available files (clips) is requested. The default file may be specified and used
for all other purposes. If no other valid file has been specified and loaded, such as on initialization
and errors, the V1 will load the default file.
6.1.2 Creating a New File
Hold OPTION and press SAVE, the LCD will show you the automatically assigned name, press
ENTER to create the file or ESCAPE to abort.
6.1.3 Loading an Existing File
Hold OPTION and press RECALL. Turn the JOG WHEEL to browse through existing files, press
ENTER to load the selected file or ESCAPE to abort.
6.1.4 Erasing a File
Hold OPTION and press CLEAR. Turn the JOG WHEEL to browse through existing files, press
ENTER to erase the selected file or ESCAPE to abort.
6.1.5 Files and Time Code
Each file is considered to have available a “pre-striped” time code range with continuous ascending
time code beginning at 00:00:00:00 through the largest valid time code position specified in OPTION
MENU (3) “New Rec Set”, the default value is 24 hours. When in A-time mode, video material may
be recorded at any time code position within the file, when in Time-Code mode video is recorder at
the incoming time code position. Time code positions that have never been recorded over are
considered to be black video.
6.1.6 Setting Recording Parameters for each File
Each file can have different recording parameters. The recording parameters that will be saved
when a new file is created are in the OPTION MENU (3) New Rec Set which includes compression
ratio, bit rate, number of audio tracks, duration, NTSC or PAL, 1080i or 720p HD formats etc. The
available settings depend on the V1 model in use and the options installed.
6.1.7 Mixing Recording Parameters
Every file can have its own recording parameters (such as compression ratio), but to create playlists that use more than one file, the recording parameters should be the same for all files. If they are
not, the transition between files during playback will no longer be seamless.
V_1.OM.000160.DRM
Page 31 of 85
Doremi Labs
Version 5.2
6.2 Recording Modes
To avoid having repetitive time code within the same file, the V1 records in different ways depending
on the Time Code Mode selected in MENU 2.

If Time Mode is set to Time Code or to ATC, the V1 will read the incoming time code
selected and synchronizes itself to record at the proper position.

In all other modes, the V1 will record at the current position or at the end of file depending on
the “Rec at:” setting in OPTION MENU (1) “Transport”.
6.3 The V1 and Supporting control Protocols
6.3.1 Serial Machine Control (SONY 9 pin and Pioneer Laser Disk) Protocols
When the V1 is set to emulate Sony 9pin mode (BVW-75, DVW-500 or RS232C decks) in OPTION
MENU (1) Transport > Emulate or Pioneer Laser Disk in OPTION MENU (15) SERIAL PRT the
remote control commands will only access the video in the current opened file.
6.3.2 Odetics and VDCP (Louth) Protocols
The V1 supports the Odetics and VDCP (Louth) protocol. To select a protocol, go to OPTION MENU
(01) Transport and select the desired protocol in Emulate.
6.3.3 Odetics Limited Mode
The V1 has an emulation mode called Limited Mode. When a file is loaded and you are in Limited
Mode operation will be “limited” to the recorded video part of that file. OPTION MENU (1) Transport
> Emulate set to Odetics LMTD.
In this mode, the playback boundaries of the file, will be set by the IN and OUT PRESET values
specified when the file is loaded. Limited Mode can only be accessed when using the V1 in Odetics
mode.

If the IN PRESET is before the start of recorded video, the start boundary will default to the
start of the recorded video.

If the OUT PRESET is after the end of recorded video, the end boundary will default to the
end of the recorded video.
6.4 Creating Segments and Play Lists
6.4.1 What is a Segment
A segment is a recording on the active drive defined by a time IN and a time OUT points. Up to 2000
segments can be defined on the V1.
6.4.2 Segments and the V1’s Multi-File System
Segments are created on the loaded file (or the default file if no file has been loaded. When you
recall a segment it will load the file associated with it when it was created. This means that
segments can be used to create play-lists that use multiple files.
V_1.OM.000160.DRM
Page 32 of 85
Doremi Labs
Version 5.2
6.4.3 Creating a Segment
To work with segments, first ensure that OPTION MENU (1) Transport Emulate is set to V1.
To create a segment, press IN button where you want the in point to be and press OUT where you
want the out point to be. You may mark IN and OUT on-the-fly while you are playing or you can
locate to each point individually (Enter Time Code and push GOTO or locate command on RS422)
and enter the in and out points separately.
Press SAVE and enter a number from 0001 to 2000 to identify the segment and then press ENTER.
To recall any defined segment for playback, press RECALL, enter the number of the segment from
0001 to 2000, and then press ENTER. The segment will play automatically and the LCD will display
the segment information as indicated in the following section.
NOTES :
The V1 will not save any segment number above 2000 and will not save segment number 0000.
When you enter a segment number, the V1 will locate to the start of the segment after a certain
delay. If you do not want the V1 to locate to those intermediate segment numbers, you should
enter the whole number quickly.
If you want to define the segment that will play directly after the one you have just entered, before
you hit ENTER press the up arrow key and enter the next segment (you can also define the
previous segment) then press ENTER.
6.4.4 Creating a Play List and Loops
Once the segments are fully defined as described above, a play list can be defined to automatically
chain or loop segments during playback. In order to implement this list, each segment requires the
definition of a "next segment" parameter and, optionally, a "previous segment" parameter.
To define the next segment:
 Press RECALL, enter the number of the segment to modify, press ++, the LCD will display "Next
Seg:", enter the segment number of the segment you want to play next and press ENTER. Note
that you are only allowed to enter valid segment numbers.
 Do the above for each segment you want to chain.
 To create a “play list” that loops simply have the last segment of the chain point to the first
segment of the chain
 If you want to create a loop of a single segment, recall a segment and set the “next segment” to
the same number as the segment you just recalled.
Define a previous segment only when you want to insert a segment into an existing play list:
 Press RECALL and enter the number of the segment to be inserted, press --, the LCD will
display "Prev Seg:", enter the segment number that will precede it in the play list and press
ENTER.
 Press RECALL and enter the number of the segment to be inserted, press ++, the LCD will
display "Next Seg:", enter the segment number that will follow in the play list and press ENTER.
NOTE: You are only allowed to enter valid segments.

The "Previous Segment" is only used to insert a segment in a previously defined play list. The
V1 will automatically display the previous segments for each play list item when you recall the
segment and move to "Prev Seg".
Defining more than one play list
The segment definition and playback feature allows the user to define more than one play list, as
long as the segment numbers do not conflict. i.e. the user can define: Play list A: (5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 5)
and Play list B: (10, 9, 8, 7, 10). To play list A, the user can recall any segment from that list (1, 2, 3,
4 or 5) or play list B by recalling any segment from that list (7, 8, 9 or 10).
Modifying a list during playback
A list can be modified during playback. This is useful to allow jumps from one list to the other. If we
use the two play list defined above, if during playback of list one, the user Recalls segment 2 and
enter 10 as the next segment (instead of 1), the V1 will jump from list 1 to list 2 as soon as it finishes
playing back segment number 2.
Using a segment as a Marker
A segment can also be used as a marker. Locate to the point you want to put a marker on, hit the IN
key followed by the OUT key and save the segment number as "no." Any time you recall segment
"no." the V1 will locate to that point and stops.
Segments and “A Time”
The Segment definition uses the “A Time” (absolute time) as a reference, this means that even if
you set a Time Code Offset, your segments will not change, they will only display the new time code
when played.
Remaining Time of a Segment During Playback
When you RECALL a segment or a play list, the LCD will display the segment number playing back
along with the remaining time up to the OUT point of that segment in the following format:
Segment No. :
MM.SS
Where No. is the segment number played from 0001 to 2000 and MM.SS is the remaining time up
to the OUT point in mn:sec.

6.5 Chase Command and Chase Modes
The V1 can chase in two different ways. The Chase Command will force the V1 to synchronize to
the incoming LTC and start playback, it will not stop when the LTC stops. In Chase Mode, the V1
will synchronize to the incoming LTC, Serial Time Code and stay synchronized as long as they are
present. The V1 will stop when the time code stops.
While in chase mode, if the time code stops, the V1 can be set to “free-wheel” for up to 10 frames.
Select the number of frames in OPTION MENU (01) Transport Chase FWL. If your LTC is reliable
set this to “1”.
6.5.1 The Chase Command
To execute a Chase command press OPTION and hit PLAY. Both the source machine and the V1
should be synchronized to the same source of House Sync and the time code should be fed from
the source machine into the LTC IN of the V1.
Begin playing the source machine. The V1 will begin playing as soon as it sees time code that is
within the range defined for the active file and will continue playing in stand alone mode, so a stop
on the incoming LTC will not stop the V1.
During this chase (OPTION PLAY) the V1 LCD displays “PLAY” with a black dot to indicate that the
play is in sync with the source.
6.5.2 Chase Mode, CHASE to LTC Time Code
To put the V1 into "Chase to LTC" mode, set MENU (4) Chase Mode to Chase to LTC. Both the
source machine and the V1 should be synchronized to the same source of House Sync and the
time code should be fed from the source machine into the LTC IN of the V1. Begin playing the
source machine. The V1 will begin playing as soon as it sees time code that is within the range
defined for the active file and will continue to play LOCKED to the incoming LTC, so a stop on the
incoming LTC will also stop the V1.
During this chase play, the V1 LCD displays "VAR" to indicate that it can chase at different speeds.
6.5.3 Chase Mode, CHASE to RS422 or Serial Time Code
To put the V1 into the Chase to RS422 or Serial Time Code mode, set MENU (4) Chase Mode to
Serial TC. Both the source machine and the V1 should be synchronized to the same source of
House Sync and the time code should be fed from the source machine into the RS422 port of the
V1. Begin playing the source machine. The V1 will begin playing as soon as it sees a time code
within the range defined for the active file and will continue to play LOCKED to the incoming RS422
time code.
During this chase play, the V1 LCD displays "VAR" to indicate that it can chase at different speeds.
6.6 Using Discontinuous Time Code on the Open File
IMPORTANT NOTE: Discontinuous time code can cause many playback problems.
If the incoming LTC or VITC are not needed, set the unit in “A Time” mode.
If the incoming LTC or VITC are needed, set the unit in Time Code or VITC before you start
recording. For projects that might have the same time code, Doremi Labs, strongly recommends
creating a file for each continuous time code section.

Control
(2) Time Mode
This setting emulates the Local/Remote switch found on many Video Tape
Recorders and required by some remote control devices.
Local
For front panel control of the V1
Remote
For control of the V1 by an external edit controller or workstation
via the rear panel RS-422 connectors
Selects the Time Code source of the V1 during recording.
A Time
Absolute Time, the time code displayed on the V1 front panel and
present on the TIME CODE OUT connector during playback or
record is generated internally by the V1. A Time represents the
time elapsed since the start of the recording unless a time code
offset has been set.
For NTSC frame-rates the time code out can be outputted as DF or
NDF depending on the selection in OPTION MENU (17).
During record, the V1 will not check for time code input on the LTC
or the ATC and will record at the current location or at the End of
file depending on the selection in OPTION MENU (1).
Time Code
The time code out is outputted as DF or NDF depending on the file
type creation, if the file is created with DF then the output will be
DF, if the file is created with NDF then the output will be NDF. In
Time Code mode, the DF/NDF selection in OPTION MENU (17)
does not affect the input or the output.
During record the V1 will latch to the time code input on the time
code in connector or to the SDI embedded ATC depending on the
selection in OPTION MENU (17).
The time code input LTC/ATC should match the file’s format framerate. If the time code input is not present or has the wrong frame
rate, a “wrong time code” message will be displayed.
(03)Sync Source

(04) Chase Mode
Specifies how the V1 will chase to time code.
Off
Normal mode of operation when the unit is controlled by a
workstation via the 9 pin RS-422 connection.
LTC
In this mode the V1 will chase the time code fed through the
TIME CODE INPUT jack. This mode is recommended when no
RS422 9 pin control is present.
Serial TC
In this mode the V1 will chase the time code received on the RS422 connection. This mode requires a special cable and it is
recommended only if no RS422 9 pin control is present.
Play lock
The play-lock is a chase to time code function. When the playlock is set the V1 will chase the incoming Time Code to start the
play, but then will keep in playing until the incoming time code
stops completely (i.e. the same value and the time code is not
incrementing), or disappears.
After the playback starts the incoming Time Code is not checked for
validity, it will only be checked for presence or if not moving.
Note: The Chase to LTC Mode above is different than the OPTION PLAY
Command also referred to as Chase Command (see paragraph 6.5).
(05) Vid Source
Displays the input source, “SDI” for HD-SDI and SD-SDI.
(06) Aud Source
Specifies the audio input format. Select between Analog, AES or SDI (for

10.1 Transport
The Transport settings feature functions that affect the general playback and record operation of the
V1.
Disk Access
This option will allow you to write protect your file. Select between Play and PLRE (Play & Record (Default)). When Play is selected, you will not be able to
record on the file or initialize the disk.
Frame Mode
Select between Frame Mode ON, OFF and Play.
When ON the V1 will stop on a frame and in slow motion it will play frame by
frame.
When OFF the V1 will stop on a field and in slow motion it will play field by field.
In PLAY, the V1 will stop on a field and in slow motion it will play frame by
frame.
This setting also affects the Step Recording option. For Slow Motion
application, the frame mode must be OFF. When the V1 is in stop (freeze)
mode and Frame Mode is set to ON a full video frame will be displayed.
StopMod
Select the video output to be displayed after the V1 receives a stop command.
Set stop mode to either show a field/frame from the drive (Still) or show the
image present on its input (EE).
Jog On Ch
Select between “1&2”, “3&4”, “5&6” and “7&8”. When the V1 is playing at any
speed below 100%, the audio will output from only two channels. Use this
option to select which tracks the audio will be on when the V1 is playing at any
speed below 100%.
FastMod
Select between Norm (normal) and Enhan (enhanced). Enhanced mode will
provide the best video preview in Fast Forward and Fast Rewind
Set to Normal for V1-HD installed with the independent record and play option.
JogSpeed
Sets the maximum speed in Jog mode to 100% or FULL (no limit).
PL1Field<%
The speed shown in percentage will define the speed under which the V1 will
only play odd fields. If you want to play odd and even fields at all speeds, select
0%. For Slow Motion applications you must set this parameter to “0” and save
it.
ChaseFWL
The number of frames defined in this option will set the free-wheel of the chase
mode between 1 and 10 frames or “0”. If your time code is reliable set to “0”.
When set to a value between 1 and 10, the V1 will play the same field for the
specified amount of frame(s) before it stops and wait for the new time code to
chase.
This function is useful to reduce the audio noise during the chase command. If
you know that your source does not have drop-outs in the time code, set this
value to 1.
LimToSeg
V_1.OM.000160.DRM
Limit to Segment; specifies the operation of “Loop Mode” below. When
“LoopMode” is set to ON, the V1 will record (play) in a loop specified by the
Page 50 of 85
Doremi Labs
Version 5.2
segment number. If the segment selected in this option is 0, the loop will be the
entire length of the file (24 hours).
LoopMode
Select between OFF and ON. When ON the V1 will loop back to beginning of
the file when it reaches the end of the file or segment as specified in
“LimToSeg” above. When set to OFF the V1 will stop at the end of the file.
Emulate
Select between V1 (default), BVW-75, DVW-500, Odetics, Odetics LMTD,
VDCP (Louth) and RS-232C.
StepRec
This option is for Step Recording. When enabled, every time the V1 goes into
record, it will only record one frame. This option is useful for animation. When
Step Recording is disabled, the V1 is in normal mode of operation.
Select ALL to record the video and audio. If you want to record video only
without altering the previously recorded audio, select Video.
Rec at
The function tells the V1 to record at the current position (Cur P.) or at the end
of the last recorded video in the file (End F.). If you are working in any of the ATime modes and want to avoid recording over existing material, set this option
to End F.
Note : Rec at: End F. is not valid if the Time Mode is set to Time Code. In those
this mode, the unit will synchronize to the incoming time code to determine the
recording position.
10.2 Auto Play
The Auto Play settings allow the V1 to automatically start playing a segment when the V1 is
powered on and the drive is mounted.
Auto Play
Enter a predefined segment number. The V1 will now play that segment every
time it mounts that drive. This function can also be used to automatically locate
to a start point every time the disk is mounted. All you need to do is set the IN
and OUT time at the same location for the auto-play segment.
NoVidDly 000s
V1 Screen Saver. This parameter sets the delay until the video output goes
black (screen saver) in 10 second increments. "000" will disable this feature.
Example: "010" will cause the unit to output black video when the unit is idle for
10 seconds.
10.3 New Rec Set
The New Record Settings contain all the main options used to define a V1 File.
If you are using multiple files on the V1 you must create a new file after changing a setting in this
section. For instructions on how to create a file, see Section 6.1.2.
If you are using a single file (the default file created by the V1) you will need to reinitialize after
changing a setting in this section - See Section 10.7.

12 Video and Key
Note: For Video & Key the DLNK-2K option is required. This is now a standard option on the
V1-HD-2K model.
There are two methods to record Video & Key:

Single-pass Recording using two synchronized inputs.

Dual-pass Recording using a single input and the V1-HD Merge function.
In both cases, the end result is a single file with locked Video & Key outputs.
In addition to the video, and regardless of the bit-rate used: the V1-HD records 2, 4, 6 or 8 tracks of
uncompressed audio (sampled at 48 KHz).
Analog and AES audio are at 16-bit depth; The SDI embedded audio is at 16-bit or 32-bit depth; The
V1-HD also records LTC and ATC time-code.
The V1-HD records in different ways depending on the Time Code Mode selected in MENU (2). The
V1-HD does not allow for repeating or non-continuous time-code.
The file time-line starts at 0 and ends at 24hrs.

When Time Mode is set to Time Code, the V1 will read the incoming time code LTC or ATC
depending on the time-code selection in OPTION MENU (17) and synchronizes itself to
record on the time-line and at the proper position.

When Time Mode is set to A-Time, the V1 will record on the time-line at the current position
or at the end of file depending on the “Rec at:” setting in OPTION MENU (01) “Transport”.

13 3D
Note: For Video & Key the DLNK-2K option is required. This is now a standard option on the
V1-HD-2K model.
There are two methods to record 3D:

Single-pass Recording using two synchronized inputs.

Dual-pass Recording using a single input and the V1-HD Merge function.
In both cases, the end result is a single file with locked 3D outputs.
In addition to the video, and regardless of the bit-rate used; the V1-HD records 2, 4, 6 or 8 tracks of
uncompressed audio (sampled at 48 KHz).
Analog and AES audio are at 16-bit depth; the SDI embedded audio is at 16-bit or 32-bit depth; the
V1-HD also records LTC and ATC time-code.
The V1-HD records in different ways depending on the Time Code Mode selected in MENU (2). The
V1-HD does not allow for repeating or non-continuous time-code.
The file time-line starts at 0 and ends at 24hrs.

When Time Mode is set to Time Code, the V1 will read the incoming time code LTC or ATC
depending on the time-code selection in OPTION MENU (17) and synchronizes itself to
record on the time-line and at the proper position.

When Time Mode is set to A-Time, the V1 will record on the time-line at the current position
or at the end of file depending on the “Rec at:” setting in OPTION MENU (01) “Transport”.

14 Troubleshooting
14.1 Unable to Control V1 Remotely
If you have a normal RS422 9 pin control connection and you cannot control the V1, check MENU
(4) Chase Mode. It should be set to OFF. In addition, ensure that the controller protocol and the
emulation mode match (OPTION MENU (1) Transport Emulate and OPTION MENU (15) Serial
Port).
14.2 V1 Identification for Editors and DAW on the RS422 Port
The V1 can reply with two different Machine Ids when connected to a controlling device like a Sony
9-Pin editor.
If OPTION MENU (1) Transport is set to BVW75, it will reply with a "BVW75" identification.
If OPTION MENU (1) Transport is set to V1 (default), the V1 will reply with a "V1" identification.
If OPTION MENU (1) Transport is set to DVW-500, the V1 will reply with a "DVW500" identification.
Caution note: Some DAWs or Editors will not initialize the RS422 port correctly if the Id returned on
the RS422 port is unknown by them. In this case, set the EMULATION to BVW75.
14.3 The Video has no Colors
If the video is not stable and is not displaying colors properly, you have set the MENU (3) Sync
Source to Auto or Sync In but you do not have a black burst signal fed to the SYNC IN connector.
If the video stabilizes when you switch to Internal, the problem is definitely your Sync Source
setting.
14.4 No Audio from Input Monitor
If you cannot hear the audio when you go in input monitor, check the OPTION MENU (11 & 12) for
your Audio Levels and check the audio input source menu.
14.5 Unable to Write to Active Drive
If you are not able to write to your active drive, i.e. cannot record, initialize or format, check OPTION
MENU (6) SCSI Setup and set V1 to Rec/Play. It can also be due to the selection of Disk Acc in
OPTION MENU (1).
14.6 Forcing Power ON in any Condition
The V1 can be set to remain on even if AC power is cycled OFF then ON again. To force a “always
ON” operation please consult our technical support department.
14.7 No MD Found
This message is valid for new drives that have not been used on a V1. You will need to initialize the
drive(s).

(the RCV2).
15.3.1
Check your RCV2 Firmware Version
Enter the CONTROLLER MENU by holding the ESCAPE button and pressing MENU. Scroll to
Firmware.
15.3.2
The VUploader Utility
The RCV2 can be upgraded using the VUploader utility version 1.18 or higher. Download the
VUploader utility from www.doremilabs.com in the support page.
Connect the 9pin cable between the RCV2-9P port labeled RS422 (1-2) (do not use the port labeled
RS422 (3-4)) to any of the ports on the back panel of your V1 deck.
Power up the unit while holding the Channel 1 button under the 4 line LCD display, you should see a
message saying "Flash mode"
Run VUploader. For detailed instructions see the VUploader README file that comes with

clock) is selected.
20. Select Protools -> OMS Midi. Please be sure to deselect the serial port used by Protools for V1
control to avoid a conflict with OMS operation.
Protools will now be able to control the V1. The way it works is as followed:
 You hit play in Protools
 Then Protools will cue the V1 to the current play location MINUS the amount of frames set in
step 12
 Next, the V1 will send LTC to your LTC-to-MTC converter
 Finally, Protools will receive the MTC and start chasing this timecode
If problems persist, please consult the “Protools and V1 control” FAQ’s
