Re: 10.13.6 with 2018.7 ... best version ever!? Holy Sssh

Does that mean that we are technically using a 'qualified' system if we upgrade to 10.13.6? Would Avid still offer technical support?

I badly want to try the update. I really wish Avid would...

Re: APFS and Mountain Lion Error

I've had no luck finding a script, but I will take another look and report back if I find anything useful. Strangely, I haven't really seen much talk about the issue at all.

Thanks again for...

Re: APFS and Mountain Lion Error

Thanks, Sardi!

That makes me feel better.

The dialogue box gives 3 options:
1. Initialize...
2. Ignore
3. Eject

I always choose 'Ignore'

APFS and Mountain Lion Error

I mainly use Pro Tools 2018 and High Sierra (10.13.3) with my main SSD drive running on a 2010 Mac Pro.

Occasionally I need to open an older Pro Tools 10 session. In those cases, I switch to a...

Re: macOS 10.14 Mojave and “cheese grater” Mac Pros

Just installed a flashed AMD Radeon HD 7970 3 GB in my 2010 Mac Pro. No issues. Running beautifully so far. System Report says "Metal: Supported"

Crossing my fingers that this means the cheese...

Re: macOS 10.14 Mojave and “cheese grater” Mac Pros

I have one more question if you don't mind. Does the manufacturer make any difference in performance or quality?

I see 7950 and 7970 cards made by AMD, XFX and Sapphire.

As long as it is the...

Re: macOS 10.14 Mojave and “cheese grater” Mac Pros

When you say AMD 7950 or 7970, you mean the HD versions, correct?

I see there is an AMD 7970 GHz Edition in addition to the AMD HD 7970.

Is the GHz Edition unnecessary? Would it add any...

Re: macOS 10.14 Mojave and “cheese grater” Mac Pros

I keep reading about "Metal 2"

If I'm understanding it correctly, Metal 2 is not a separate API and should still be able to run on any Metal supported GPU.

So, in theory, future adoption of...

Re: macOS 10.14 Mojave and “cheese grater” Mac Pros

What will happen if you have a 2010/2012 Mac Pro without a compatible GPU? Will the OS not install at all or will some features of the new OS just not be available?

Re: macOS 10.14 Mojave and “cheese grater” Mac Pros

Exactly. Since we won't have a real option until at least 2019, I think it would make no sense for them to drop the cheese grater yet. I don't think anyone is going to run out and buy a trashcan at...

Re: macOS 10.14 Mojave and “cheese grater” Mac Pros

Awesome. That's not too bad. If it can keep this machine "current" for a while longer then it will be well worth it.

Re: macOS 10.14 Mojave and “cheese grater” Mac Pros

Thank you!
I'm reading up on the cards you mentioned. What would you consider to be a "decent" price for a flashed card or something that will work right out of the box?

It will be interesting to...

macOS 10.14 Mojave and “cheese grater” Mac Pros

I've read conflicting reports on the compatibility of the “cheese grater” Mac Pro (2010/2012) and Apple's upcoming macOS 10.14 Mojave.

Apparently, if these older Mac Pro models have a metal...

Re: Pro Tools 12 wont open, goes to OSX finder window (Error loading sound file)

Did any of those sessions by any chance have a plugin like Sample Magic's Magic AB instantiated? Or any other plugin that is trying to load an external file?

Is it possible to set metering to both pre-fader and post-insert when tracking?

When tracking with plugins, it appears that when set to pre-fader, a record-armed track always shows its metering pre-insert.

As soon as record is no longer armed, the metering becomes...
