Default Re: Avid Core Audio with HDX/HD Native on Yosemite/later Mac OS

Let's see if I got this right. I've installed the new HD driver on a HD Native system running PT 12.5.2 and a HDX system running PT 12.7.1. On the HD Native system, I'm able to use the HDN engine from other apps while PT is running. On the HDX system, PT seems to hijack the HDX engine once PT starts. From what I can read in the release notes, this is the way it is supposed to work. But really? This leaves the HDX system running PT 12.7.1 just as useless regarding Core Audio as it was before. If I understand things right, I can downgrade the HDX system to PT 12.5 in order to use Core Audio the way it is supposed to, but then I can't use the DSP on the HDX card.

Am I missing something here?
