Latest Pro Tools LE version that runs on MacOS 9?
 
Hi,

Just a couple of questions:

1. What's the latest Pro Tools LE version that runs on MacOS 9 with a Digi001?

2. What's the recommended Pro Tools LE version for running a Digi001 on MacOS 9?

I'm installing the Mac/Pro Tools from scratch, what MacOS 9 revision should I use? Any advice or extra tip?

Thank you!

Protools LE 5.2.1cs1 is the last version available for OS 9 It's a beta version offering 32 tracks and it's only available from the digidesign site as a download if you're a registered customer and provide you're serial number.

Download it and install things in this order:

1. Install OS 9. Apply any updates to bring it up to OS 9.2.2, the last version apple released.

2. Install OMS + any drivers for USB midi gear you might have, software synths etc...

3. Install 'Protools LE 5.1.1' (The version that comes on the installer CDs you get with the Digi001 or AMIII)

4a. Find the protools LE application (Should be in 'Digidesign/Protools/' in whatever folder you installed to, usually 'Applications OS 9').

4b. Rename it to 'Protools LE old' or something to distinguish it from the beta version.

4c. Drop just the 'Protools LE' application for 5.2.1cs1 in the same folder.

Now you have a working install of protools LE that provides 32 tracks and OS 9 compatability, stick with the version of DAE from PT LE 5.1.1, the one with the beta isn't needed for the additional features it offers over 5.1.1, infact it caused quite a lot of crashing problems for a lot of people.

Hope this helps!

5.2.1 on OS9 on the 001 is what I've been using for over 2 years. i cannot recommend it enough. The most stable of all configurations, so I've gathered from reading 2 years worth of posts. If you get dynamite converters, preamps and monitors, you could be set for life, providing you're not lured into making upgrades. Using OS9, you will be cut off from most DUC participation, but the stability will be well worth it.

Thank you for your kind help! That's what I presumed, an "old" Pro Tools under OS9 would be a better choice (a proven system). I want a stable, reliable tool, not lots of features I won't ever use.
