You lucked out.
I wonder why? I was using Reason in stand alone just yesterday ?? And only sort of lucked out, because I cannot get Final Cut to work at all For that I have to re boot from my drive that has Mav's on it .
Bottom line is, it should be fixed period..Lets hope Drew M is right.

Hi K-Roche ,
It's not just HD users , I am on Pro Tools Native Version and the broken AVIDCore Audio problem has royally screwed with all my other applications and hardware (that I liked to use to using everyday), but now cannot use them at all with my MBox3pro (that use also Avid Core Audio)

.., things like ...,
- all my Native instruments Hardware,
- apps like Guitar Rig ,
- Other Native Instruments Software like their Convolution Reverb (that uses the guitar rig engine) ,
- and also other companies like Audiofile Triumph CD mastering software.

Avid offered a crappy workaround .., which recommended removing AvidCore Audio from the Hal Folder ..., if I wanted anything like the above to work

.., but if that suggested workaround was actually used :

- Then that suggested workaround made EVERYTHING ELSE (ie; out side of using a pro tools session only) >>> to NOT work with my MBox3 pro interface (eg; iTunes , You-tube etc )

As a realistic workaround ..,
I have since had to purchase other expensive items to replace (and re-learn) those thing I relied on day to day ,
.., money and time unnecessarily spent if AVID had of bothered fixing what they broke, plus add to that the endless bugs we all suffered past year , and to realize we are now paying extra for all this non-functionality ahhhhh

Yosemite's release was on 16th October 2014 - we are still waiting on AVID to fix this.
Pro Tools 2018.1 Native * Slate Raven MTi-1 Version 3.3.0 * AVID MBox3 Pro * OSX Sierra 10.12.6 * MAC PRO (late 2013) * 3.5 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon E5 * 64 GB Ram 1866 MHz DDR * AMD FirePro D300 2048Mb * Lacie LBD 1TB Thunderbolt 2 PCiE * Blackmagic Multidock Thunderbolt2 (Broken !!! - shyte support from Blackmagic Singapore > A-Holes) * Samsung SSD's 850 Pro * WD Black HDD's

Yep, got the answer from Avid now. Back to a cable...

Hello Kenneth,

Mac OS X 10.10 (Yosemite) included significant changes in Apple's Core Audio architecture which rendered Avid's existing HD Core Audio Driver non-functional. Bringing our HD hardware in line with Apple’s architectural changes has required more than simply modifying our existing driver - an entirely different driver was needed, which required all new code. Work on this new driver has been underway for quite some time now, and we are making progress. We can not project a release date at this time, but rest assured this is a priority, and we are working on it.

As a workaround, you can use your built in sound device or other audio interface for your other DAW and connect its audio output to your HDX's audio input so that you can hear it on your studio speakers.

Although all the work is finalized in PT HDX we are using Live, Reason, Studio One and DP (each has its own strengths depending on a given project)... Core Audio was working just fine (well except for Apple audio) until we updated to 12.6 ...now its totally broken
We are fed up and just ordered the Thunderbolt Resident Audio T2 unit just so we can work on those other DAWs...
It is redundant and sad that we have to add more third party hardware, after having had invested thousands of dollars in PT HDX and Avid IOs.

Default I'm REALLY SCREWED......

Ok....I'm apparently one of the few that had Core Audio working fine on my YOSEMITE based Mac Pro. I upgraded Pro Tools to 12.6 last night and of course the 12.6 HD driver like a bone head and now I have NO Core Audio!!!! I Master in addition to recording and mixing and my Wavelab 9 Pro system is now DEAD!!! Yes, I know it's my fault but is it unreasonable to expect what's arguably one of the most expensive audio products on the market to simply work?? I'm not asking for anything free, I just want to use what I paid for!!!!

There is a new Core Audio driver on the way, but in the meantime, I would downgrade to the last version that worked

The better I drink...the more I mix.....

Default Avid Core Audio Manager 12.6, 3rd-party DAWs, Yosemite

I run Pro Tools HD 12.6 on a Mac Pro 5.1 with HD Native (pcie), under Mac OSX 10.10.5 and the HD Native doen't work with 3rd-party DAWs (Avid Core Audio Manager 12.6).
What can I do to have it works while I want to stay with PT 12.6?
Is it possible to downgrade Avid Core Audio Manager and keep PT 12.6 working?
MacPro 5.1 (2 x 3.46 GHz, Twelve Core Intel Xeon) - OS X 10.12.6 - Ram 64G - PTHD 2018.7 - HD Native Card - Avid HD Omni - BM Intensity Pro - Monitoring PSI Audio (surround)
