I'm trying out the control app on my wife's old iPad 2 and PT 11.3.1 on MBP retina.
I know that's not supported and it's a bummer that I don't get meters.


I'm noticing that Pro Tools, and my...

Personally I LOVE the retina...

Re: Real basic Q about 10.3.9 automation

Hmm. They shouldn't need anything else as long as you are ok with drawing the automation in with the edit tools and the mouse.
