Thanks, Jerome for the info. Do you think it will also work with Tango 1?
Unfortunately I can’t help you with protools. Sorry.

I replaced my Tango 2 HD for an SSD. Faster, quieter, better ;-)
You can simply clone your HD onto your SSD, or use the ghost image found here

Using Cubase 10.5 and Mac Os Mojave here, mostly bug free (I can also access
8 inserts without problems).
By the way, still looking for any info on users using Protools with their
Tango. I could use my Tango 2 with previous Protools versions but it has
stopped working for me since the 2020 protools version (tango sees
protools/netsmart but it’s not syncing correctly and no controls are

I’m also a Nuendo user and very much do what Chris wrote, I also use the
Avid App in conjunction with the Tango to control the channel strip and
inserts. An other work around is using Quick controls in Nuendo which still
works as designed on the Tango. Quick control will let you assign any
control knob within Nuendo to 8 user programable controls which then can be
accessed on the Tango.

I'm very happy running Tango-1 with Nuendo. They are very well integrated.
The Tango can mirror exactly which channels are visible in Nuendo and most
other things work well.
The only issue is that a couple of years ago Steinberg decided to increase
the number of available Insert slots available from 8 to 16 in Nuendo v.8.
Unfortunately they elected to use the exact same memory area for all 16
inserts that had previously been used for just the original 8 inserts.
Consequently the Tangos could no longer access the original 8 inserts
correctly - only the first insert on each track would function on the
Tango. I tried hard to get them to correct this, without success. However,
my simple solution to this is to use the latest version of Nuendo
(currently v.11) for most work, and if I want to do a lot of editing using
the Tango's physical controllers I switch back to Nuendo v.7 temporarily,
which was the last full version before the change was made. It works for
me and I never need more that 8 inserts anyway.
You are right - The Tangos are great and I can't imagine not using them.

Depends if I work on classics or pop. For pop music I appreciate Logic's
comp feature which allows you to record several takes onto one track and
cut (edit) them in seconds. I know no faster editing.
For classical recording where I don't record with a click (to a beat) I
want to edit maybe in a passage of 16th notes. Both Pyramix and Sequoia
have a wonderful crossfade editor for this task. Both are better for such
things than Protools. Pyramix is much harder to get used to in the
beginning than Seqouia, but it works fine with the Tango (1) and there are
some quite good tutorials. Another advantage (and disadvantage, because
you have get hold of it first) is the possibility to configure everything
to your needs, for example the mixer.

Thanks guys for the answers!
I am gonna try it out, need to get into Pyramix first and see if i can
get a demo or something..
To Ludger: do you prefer working on Pyramix with the Tango or is Logic X
ok (with the small bugs)? Are you using Tango 1 or 2?

Pyramix ( I have Version 10) works fine, but it only runs on Windows.
Logic Pro x fine with the mentioned issues. But on High Sierra and
Catalina only till version 10.4.3!!! So make sure to keep that version!!
Nuendo I have not yet tried out.

I am trying to figure out which DAW works the best with the SmartAV
Tango controller. Right now i am using my Tango 1 with Logic X on my
Mac (Sierra) and it works fine. There are some minor bugs:
-EQ visuals are not the same as in Logic
-SENDS encoders are not working, i have to touch them and then i can
adjust them with the active control knobs
But i believe that there must be a DAW out there that has full Tango
integration without any bugs and all the workflow intact. I read that
Nuendo or Pyramix are great, but it is hard to find any info on this
subject with SmartAV support gone.
I am mostly interested in the mixing features, editing not so much.
So is there a DAW that can run on a modern OS (Windows 10 or Mac Big
and that works with modern plugin suites (Kush/Voxengo/Waves/..) and
that has full Tango integration and NO bugs?
If anyone has some experience with this i would be most interested.
I simply cannot let go of this controller, it has everything i want and
mixing is so cool with it. But i want it to be perfect and future
upgrade proof in the longterm.
