Will Pro Tools 7.4 run on a 2015 Mac?
Me and my son were just hanging out in the studio after a mixing session and he noticed I had a license for Pro Tools 7.4 on my iLok. He immediately asked if it would run on my 2015 Mac. I am using an HDX rig and I told him that might be the issue since it would be pretty easy to get a copy of tiger and a much older Mac. Truthfully this seems to be quiet a bit of trouble but now it feels like some sort of quest to look at the old grey beast again. I hate when he does stuff like this but he is the baby and I pretty darn curious now.

So....what do I have to do to get this license on a box? Please no ******* answers. I'm pretty emotional when some dumbass figures out his moms password and decides to head to DUC.

I am sure some people might find this interesting. Or maybe not. Maybe I can give it away on our live FaceBook show ( pitchORditch music reviews pitchorditch.live ) as a semi gag prize. We do that quiet a bit and the visitor seem to really like it. Plus the more we do things like this the more funds come into our non-profit audio school. My wife just said I did a plug for the show.:D Sorry, its a habit.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Tiger (PT 7.4) or Leopard (PT 7.4.2) required and as you guessed, old Mac needed

Thanks for the info.
So digging around in the storage I find a few 2012 MacMinis with 500gb SSDs in them. Thats the oldest machine I have. I suppose I could trade that for the IOS/Newest OLD machine I need. Monitor maybe?

so.....anyone interested?

I have a PowerMac G4 that can run Tiger, it also has MIX3 cards in it. However I think shipping cost and customs are prohibitive

I think the shipping would be rough. I shipped an iMac just a few states up, about a week ago, and it was almost 100$. I did have that exact setup at one point. My wife decided to feed the trashcan. When it gets hungry it will only eat my stuff for some reason :(
