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

I assume you have a good reason to upgrade?
I think Catalina is the best, most stable version of mac os ever, but it won't run 32-bits apps you know. I hope you have considered that.

I have PT...

Re: Mac Mini upgrade

That's right, Jack. I did buy 32gb ram for the old mini, but returned it and got my $200 back. So I got much more for my money this way.

I have pretty much all the processing power I need now, I...

Re: Can you use Clip Gain in PT First?

Then you've not read carefully enough.
PT First is limited in what plugins can be used, for example. Very substantial difference. It also is not updated and maintained like standard PT.

Re: Left side of clip snapping to grid

Ever since pre-PT days. It's standard.

Re: Frustrated with PT 2020 Hangs/Freezes

This is by far THE best way to get a stable system for PT. And if you do incremental backups as you go along, it's easy to roll back when something goes wrong.

Also, if you do the plugin...

Re: iLok PACE error message

Yes.
I'm back up and running now.
That was what, an hour?
The whole thing, with ILM seems to just crap out and very little info, it's very discouraging.

Re: High Memory Usage - PT 2021.3

Check Activity Monitor, it gives a better view of what's going on in memory than the PT System Usage meters.

Re: Threshold Question

I'm taking the guess that what you're talking about is plugin interface meters, as you mention "needles" and "bulbs". Not the track meters of the PT mixer window.

For what it's worth, this is not the first time I've heard of PT installer stalling, and then turns out it has done it's job and the new PT installation works. Sorry I don't have anything specific.

Re: Should I install 32gb RAM on mac mini?
