Re: Multiple Users - Pro Tools Ultimate 2020

Re: Multiple Users - Pro Tools Ultimate 2020

This should work without you needing to do anything. Certainly works for me on Mojave and 2020.5.

Are you holding down N and picking the correct interface as Pro Tools starts?

When does it...

Re: Headphones in and out requires Pro Tools restart

JJ what Simon is talking about is the new dual output audio capability introduced in 2018 and later MacBook Pro and some other Macs. Since you have a 2015 MacBook Pro you won't be affected by this,...

Re: Thunderbolt 3/USB-c vs USB 3 speeds

And more for fellow storage geeks... that find this thread.

Mmm I thought I had tested with that as well, and amusingly may have had bluetooth keyboard battery that dies as I was trying it.

Re: Did the smart tool change after 12?

Gotcha. Ah nice find. I tested on 2020.5 on Mojave on a 2018 15" Macbook Pro and it looks broken to me as well.

Maybe not many folks use smart tool to do this? Or maybe it's system/display...

Re: Fresh PC Build - What do do in BIOS (for Pro Tools) once windows is installed

Asking questions, is great, and this is a good one, but you are now solidly in standard Windows territory and your question will be answered by a Google search.

Re: Thunderbolt 3/USB-c vs USB 3 speeds

Re: Playback issue

Hi Welcome to DUC.
