Re: Need to buy a new mac asap - should I risk an M1?

The amount of RAM is also an issue. The M1's currently only come with 8 or 16 GB of RAM and cannot be upgraded. If you are heavy into VI's then the current crop of M1 machines are probably not a...

Re: Updating a corrupted system from 2019.06 - what's stable for Catalina?

You should backup your drive first (before upgrading to Catalina) because something can go worn in the upgrade process. If it were me, I would skip the overwrite upgrade to Catalina step. I would...

Re: Avid Link doesn't work

You should have stopped after uninstalling. Avid Link is awful.

Re: Updating a corrupted system from 2019.06 - what's stable for Catalina?

Speaking for myself only, Protools 2020.12 seems to be the most stable version recently. 2021.3 is working for the most part but there are a few bugs identified that didn't exist before.

Re: Big Sur/2021.3 "Undo Clip Slide" Bug

I'm not sure about the "Undo Clip Slide" or removal of fades. No one else seems to be reporting this issue here. One change with Protools 2021.3 (actually introduced in 2020.12) is that it defaults...

Re: Cannot navigate folders in Import Audio window by double-clicking them

If it is this annoying for you, you should probably roll back. We don't know when the next release will come out (usually 3-4 months)

Re: Can't activate my Pro Tools Trial through iLok Cloud

As always, Darryl knows more, so I'd listen to what he says, especially about not using ilok cloud.

Re: Can't activate my Pro Tools Trial through iLok Cloud

If I'm not mistaken, even with Ilok cloud, you must still use a physical ilok initially to activate the license that is deposited to your ilok account. Once you have it Protools working from the...

Re: Setup midi output. Yamaha modx

Another way to think about this is that MIDI is like remote control. Think about your TV remote. The remote does not send the video and sound to the TV. It only send the instructions to play a the...

Re: Setup midi output. Yamaha modx

Again, you don't record any sounds from your MODX with MIDI. It only records the instructions from the MODX to play notes. You must assign a virtual instrument to the instrument track in Protools...

Re: Setup midi output. Yamaha modx

MIDI is the information about the note value (pitch, velocity, duration, MIDI channel, etc.). I does not have a sound in the MIDI information. In other words, no sound is actually being sent in the...

Re: 2021.3 graphics glitch?

I would make an image backup of your drive using something like Carbon Copy Cloner first.

Then format the drive and install the OS (use a compatible previous version if you want) and then install...

Re: Updating to 2021.3

I think we all agree that Avid should do a better job of creating installers that handle uninstalling the previous version as necessary. Having said that, many of us have been using Protools long...

Re: Crazy DSP Bug on PT 2021.3 with Catalina/Mac Pro 2019 12 Core

The standard way to troubleshoot plugin problems is to move them to the unused folder and test to see if the issues goes away. If you suspect the Acustica Audio plugin, simply move that one out to...

Re: Crazy DSP Bug on PT 2021.3 with Catalina/Mac Pro 2019 12 Core

Perhaps you can get an earlier version of Protools through Avid's Download Cente (https://avid.secure.force.com/pkb/articles/en_US/How_To/Using-the-Avid-Download-Center)r. I have not used this, but...

Re: Mackbook Air - 2020 - Big Sur Running PT 2018?.

No version of Protools is certified to work with the M1 (new or old versions). That is not to say it worn't work, but not certified. If I were you, I would go with Protools 2021.3 since it is at...

Re: Installer hang...

Perhaps do a force quit to close the installation in progress and then try installing again. You don't want something missing in the installation.
