Re: 10.15.6 OK for PT 2020?

I haven't done a lot of testing but Protools 2020.5 starts up fine in macOS Catalina 10.15.6 on my MacBook Pro 14,3. I installed macOS Catalina 10.15.6 over an existing system with Protools already...

Re: Popping and Crackling - the next thread ...

Usually when I hear pops and clicks, it is often related to clocking issues between distal gear. Are you using any outboard gear (interfaces, AD/DA converters, mic preamps, channel strips, etc.)? ...

Re: Ultimate is the only way to have 32+ IN/OUTs?

I can't help but think back to my ADAT and Mackie HDR days and having similar discussions about maximum I/O needed for tracking orchestral sessions or live bands. The technology has changed but the...

Re: Running old AND new on different computers

Re: PT 12.5 and macOS Catalina

Protools 2019.12 just dropped a day or two ago that provides initial Catalina compatibility (Some video import issues exist). Be sure top read the release notes before proceeding.

Re: Protools 2019.12 and Catalina 10.15.2 combo

I see you stated that you are running the latest versions. Has any one tried older versions of Waves plugins (for those that opted out of WUP)

Re: 2019.12 Discussion

I wonder if anyone has upgraded to Protools 2019.12 and Catalina and can report on what happens to plugins that are not compatible with Catalina yet. Does only the offending plugins not load or work...

Re: 16gb RAM enough?

Yes. I've upgraded that MacBook Pro from 8GB to 16GB and it worked great for Protools. So I can testify that it is upgradable to 16GB RAM. The issue with that model of MBP is the failure of the...

Re: 2019 MacBook Pro hardware options - best for Pro Tools?

I think the maximum benefit would be achieved by maxing the RAM to 32GB. This is mostly because the i9 processor is already a beast. Of course, this depends on your workflow, the number of tracks,...

Re: Pro Tools 2019 !

My 2 cents:

I hope they fix the CPU errors, add folders, etc. with the next release or engine update. That is all good and needed. What concerns me is the compatibility with Mojave. By the time...

Re: Completely Frustrated!

Is it the firewire port on the computer or on the 002? I'm assuming you are referring to the port on the computer since you mention firewire800. The port on the 002 is the older firewire400 type. ...

Another possibility is a damaged firewire port on the Digi 002/003. These have been known to get damaged by hot plugging or hot unplugging while the power is on. I have not had this problem as I am...
