Default Can I run 10 and 2018 on new Mac Mini?

Question for ya guys as I’m just trying to plan ahead.

Thinking about purchasing a new Mac mini and dumping my MP cheese grater 6 core 2013.

I would like the ability to open my pro tools 10 sessions so I can reference mixes and plugins from older sessions. If I upgrade to Mac Mini/Mojave and Pro Tools 2019, is there a possible way to boot off an old drive or can I install pro tools 10 also. Plugins like McDsp and a couple others have changed so opening my old sessions on 2019 doesn’t pull their settings up.

Thanks guys

Can you? Probably. Is it supported? No.

Well we tried to run HD10.3.10 on a nMP with Mojave as we needed to convert a few older sessions to be used in HD 2018 but that was a total ssshhhhiiiit show and can NOT recommend that. Remember not even the current PT version is supported on Mojave let alone PT10 so my advice / Stay away!

If you really ”need” to use PT10 then either make a seperate boot drive with Mavericks for example or keep a older computer working with a OSX that support PT10. Dont try to mix these versions you have as it wont be pretty.

no, unless you can hack the new drivers into the old operating system

I doubt it. Most Apple products aren't backwards compatible - they will only run versions of OSX from when they were released, and onwards, so I wouldn't expect the Mac Mini 2018 model to run anything less than Mojave.

Mojave PTs 10hd works as a conversion utility for me.
Note: its not a viable DAW. But after adjusting my plugins folders for both aax and rtas i can minimal-launch. Open old sd2 ptf sessions then save copy and convert yo my current needs.
Not graphics ony apear after a mouse rollover. PITA but works.
This likely won’t work in fully 64 bit OSs

Please say again...

Mojave (...) 10HD works as conversion utility (...) likely won't work in fully 64bit OS (such as Mojave)

What I am missing here?

Yes. Just made a very short conversion vid in Mojave (1:45). YouTube Here
Mojave is touted as last non fully 64 bit OS
