HTDM vs RTAS versions of MachFive

TDM (Mix) and Pro Tools LE users (001, 002, 002R, MBox) with MachFive 1.x should use the RTAS version. HD based systems (HD) can use either RTAS or HTDM.

The advantage to HTDM is that it allows MachFive to be used in surround mode (if you have a surround-equipped monitoring system).

If you receive a DAE Error -1 when instantiating the HTDM version on a TDM system, make sure to use the RTAS version.

With MachFive 2.0 and later, there is not an HTDM version; however, the RTAS version now incorporates the same benefits the HTDM version did previously.
