Re: Upgrade to SSD drive with PT 10?

You can run Pro Tools on a Core 2 Duo, you can run it on a wet noodle if you want. But it all depends on what you want to do. A Core 2 Duo is well below the recommended current CPUs and you just will...

Re: NVMe upgrade for Mac Pro 4.1/5.1 Mojave

Guys be very careful of going around in circles.

Disabling hyper-threading on a Mac was an important tool to use at times, but mostly before Pro Tools 2019.x with its much improved threading...

Re: How do I download original OS 10.14.0 Installer

Which part are you asking about? The first part you downward and save a copy of the macOS installer from the App Store. Great stuff to keep stored on a file server.

Re: How do I download original OS 10.14.0 Installer

A better thing to do would be to search on DUC (use google search with site:duc.avid.com qualifier) and see if people are running on 10.14.6 OK or not. You don't even need to waste time posting and...

Re: NVMe upgrade for Mac Pro 4.1/5.1 Mojave

Re: NVMe upgrade for Mac Pro 4.1/5.1 Mojave

Nope.

The SSD disk you create on the Crest will/should be APFS. You can copy files from HFS+ to APFS, nothing should care. You are just copying files between different filesystems.

Re: NVMe upgrade for Mac Pro 4.1/5.1 Mojave

“regular SSD”?.... I would argue NVMe is now the regular SSD and SATA is some old slow legacy stuff.

M.2 NVMe on 4 x PCIe 2 ? Yes still much faster than a SATA III drive.
