BaseHead PC General FAQ
Click a box below to see the answer
Why do I get missing files the next time I open Pro Tools?

This seems to be a problem with versions lower than PT12 if it you drag or spot the same exact file twice into it.

The fix for now: turn on “Create Unique Filenames” on the Options Page to make sure BH always makes a new fresh filename before spotting or using DnD.

UPDATE: version 2020.5 or higher has some changes to fix the PT flaw.

When I try and drag any file from BaseHead or my Desktop to my DAW (Especially Pro Tools) it doesn't work?

You need to shut your UAC off to fix this.  It’s a known bug reported by Avid and that is their official fix for it! hahaha

Also, if you run a DAW like Cubase ‘As Administrator’ you will get the same problem until you turn the UAC OFF.

TBH….The UAC is quite worthless so shut that worthless thing off…8)

Does ReWire work with a 32 or 64 bit DAW?

version 4.x was 32 bit and 5.x and higher are 64 bit and ReWire requires the DAW to match the same bit rate.

If on PC we recommend VoiceMeeter as an alternative.
If on Mac then it’s impossible to beat Source Nexus.

Yes ReWire is free…but you get what you pay for as you know  😉

I'm getting a ReWire Error Code #3 (ReWire channel setting error code 3)

Try running BaseHead ‘As Administrator’ OR shut your UAC off completely.

The BaseHead ReWire Device isn't showing up in Pro Tools?

Go to  \Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Avid\Pro Tools and delete the file named InstalledAAXPlugIns

PT will then re-scan for the ReWire.dll and it should show up then.

Nuendo/Cubase "Follow Session Folder" doesn't seem to work unless I un-check and re-check the this option.

Make sure your SKI is 1.6.5.2 or higher. You can change the version number in Nuendo’s Plugin information window.

If it’s old open BH 4.2.7.3 or higher and go to the options page and click the ‘install’ label in the Target Application section to replace it with the latest.

Why isn't Nuendo, Cubase or Pro Tools copying files to the audio files folder when spotting or pressing"X" when the DAW prefs are set to always copy?
It’s because we are using an API supplied by these companies and they ignore these settings with region spotting and always reference files. Seems like a bug on their end to be honest.

So best to always set your transfer path to the audio files folder for the session to get the desired results. Nuendo/Cubase users can use the “Follow Session Folder” option also to make the process automated

What about Integration to other DAWs?

You can always Drag and Drop to any application that supports DnD directly from BaseHead, but as far as tighter integration, like the “Spot to Track” feature, that it isn’t possible unless an API is available from the manufacture of the DAW and currently only Nuendo/Cubase, REAPER, Pro Tools, Wwise and Premiere Pro have an available API to do such things.

Adobe Audition, Media Composer and Resolve are the next three we are eyeing to integrate into,
