Default PT 10.3.9 with Mac OS 10.9 (Maverick)

I need to upgrade an older MacBook Pro to OS 10.9 (for other software). I have Pro Tools 10.3.9 and not looking to upgrade (it works fine). Can anyone share what type of problems I could encounter with Pro Tools and 10.9? If it's only the Uninstaller issues listed on the Avid site, I'm not as concerned. Thanks.

For a good running system you do not want to just install the new OSX over the old even though that's the Apple recommended way. The good way is to clean install everything (OSX and all your programs). Do not use Migration Assassin (aka Migration Assistant) to bring over programs. To do the job you're going to need to boot from an external drive or follow one of the many articles found on the web (Google is your friend) on how to create a bootable installer flash drive with OSX 10.9 on it. BTW the latest is OSX 10.9.5; what's available on the web are just the updater which is NOT a full installer.

Before you do any of this get an external drive and a copy of Carbon Copy Cloner and make a clone of your system. That way if you muck things up you have a workable solution for the moment. Besides clones are good insurance for when things do go bad.

Works just fine in OSX 10.9.5. Actually you may want to update to PT10.3.10 which is the latest PT10 version.

I installed 10.9.5 over 10.7.5 and I’ve got a few issues iTunes would lock of and freeze, and waves Pultec EQ would be very laggy when turning the knobs in the GUI not very smooth at all

Doing what you did is probably the cause of your issues. You always want to do a clean install of everything even though Apple recommends doing it the way you did. And you never want to use Migration Assassin (aka Migration Assistant) to move programs over - data yes but programs - never.

For giggles I tried it the Apple way and had nothing but issues. Thankfully I had a working clone BEFORE I embarked on that little experiment.

When I get some down time in the studio I’ll give it a whirl installing from scratch. Hopefully this will sort my Pultec graphic issue. Don’t care about iTunes not working properly
