Re: Pro Tools 2021.3.1 Update Won’t Install

Exactly. Thank you. It acts as a reminder when anything needs updating, but doesn't seem to work when you ask it to upgrade for you. Other than that, it just keeps advertising a bunch of stuff...

Re: New 24" iMac M1

Points well taken. The argument that others have made is that some VI's load the entire sample into RAM. In this use case, it is not about RAM speed or efficiency moving data to and from the...

Re: Pro Tools 2021.3.1 Update Won’t Install

Most of us NEVER use AvidLink. Log in to your Avid Master account and under the products section, download the full installer for your operating system. This is also a good way to keep a copy of...

Re: Tech Support doesn't find my System ID

Yeah. I've never used the support so I was a little surprise a few months ago when I read it was just web-based (not live call). There are higher cost plans for phone support available. I...

Re: New 24" iMac M1

The new iMacs looks nice on a desk with the new design and colors (if you like the color choices). There is a VESA mount version available but the mount is on the lower part of the back (not...

New 24" iMac M1

The new 24" iMac M1 was announced today. I know...I know...the M1 is not Protools certified still. But here are my first thoughts about the product. It seems to have the same M1 chips as those...

Re: Big Sur

While M1 support may be months away, Big Sur support is here now with Protools 2021.3 and 2021.3.1.

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

Did you get a physical iLok dongle? It is only about $49 and a far better way to authorize Protools than the unreliable cloud based authorization.

You can get it at most music stores that carry...

Re: Big Sur & Protools 2020.11

Out of curiosity, does Protools 2021.3.1 work better on Big Sur for your processor usage issue?

Re: Magic ID

From what I've read, Magic ID is something like a checksum used to ensure data integrity or non corruption. (Feel free to correct me if I'm mistaken)

This thread has a little more information:...

Re: Pro Tools Installer asking me to manually delete PT

Yes. The correct procedure is to uninstall, not delete. I updated my previous posts to reflect that correction.

Re: Pro Tools Installer asking me to manually delete PT

No. Uninstalling Protools does not delete your plugins.

Re: Pro Tools Installer asking me to manually delete PT

Correct. You must manually uninstall it. It is one of the complaints we've been hearing around here for this release. It is often a recommend method to upgrade Protools on Windows.

Re: Question about PT and Komplete Kontrol

That is a shame. I was hoping to see the NI integration work within Protools. I might still get the KK S88 to work with Komplete outside of Protools.

Re: Question about PT and Komplete Kontrol

Yeah...that came across a little harsh. It started out as if you knew some special (however kludgy) technique that might make it all work. Therefore the OP (still exploring Protools), and I...

Re: Question about PT and Komplete Kontrol

I get that both Protools and NI are not M1 certified yet. Do they work on Intel Macs (with Big Sur), or does that also require kludgy work arounds? I was contemplating getting Komplete 13 and...

Is anyone else having this problem? I haven't heard others posting about this yet. If it is just you (or maybe a few), then it may not be a problem with the installer as so many people seem to be...

Re: 2021.3.1

I was thinking the same thing. I suppose some other bug fixes may not be deemed "Critical" and were not listed.

Has anyone tested the new HD driver yet? It sounded like several people rolled...

Re: 2021.3.1

If I'm reading the document correctly, those 121 fixes were in 2021.3. 2021.3.1 only fixed 2 critical bugs.

Re: 2021.3.1

Just installed. In reading the "What's New" document, it doesn't sound like much of a bug fix. It has a few added features, most significant is the HD driver update.

Good luck. Keep us posted on your experience. I'm considering a new UA Apollo interface, so am interested how everything goes.

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

If you have a decent monitor, keyboard, and mouse, the 16 GB M1 Mac Mini might be a the least expensive way to go. The 16 GB M1 MacBook Air and 16GB M1 MacBook Pro are more expensive but have a...

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...
