Default OSX 10.9 Update

Does anyone know the latest news, compatibility wise, between OSX 10.9 and PT 10.

I still haven't upgraded to 10.8 and am starting to need some of the features that the new osx has.

Cheers

If you already upgraded to 10.9 there is no other way than re-installing from empty hard drive.

You need to download 10.8 from App Store and burn the installer to 8GB USB stick (there are plenty of tutorials how to do that, just google). Then start from that memory card, use disk utility to empty the drive, and install.

EDIT:
Here's the link to mountain lion in case you haven't purchased it before 10.9 came out

I upgraded to Mavericks on another Hard Drive, and it works fine for me. I'm on a Mac 8 core from a few years ago. All my plugins are still ok also. I don't use midi so I can't speak to that. I just mix to video.

Sorry, I forgot to mention that I am on the latest version of PT 10.

Pro-tools-expert.com is reporting that "Pro Tools 11.1 is in final tests and we should expect OS X Mavericks compatibility for Mac users."

Thanks for the link! I am in the process of putting a machine together for 11 and 10.9 bit me when it came out. One day later I wouldn't have noticed. This helps.

At the minute I am running a Co-install of PT 10 & 11.

Anyone know the state of PT 10 and Mavericks then.

After reading someone is testing on a backup hard-drive, I am looking at completely cloning my mac and giving it a test on that. More than likely do two clones. One so I can completely revert back before I started messing around and one to test mavericks on externally.



My mac will probably end up in a bin...

YYR 123; your reply reflects Avid's attitude, demonstrated in the release of yet another version of Pro Tools without putting patches in place which will ensure successful operation of their products regardless of OS. The attitude you echo in your reply to my post is : "We don't understand what is important to you. We don't know and we don't care. One day we may fix the problem. Meanwhile, screw you and your preferences."
Thanks so much for your opinion. You certainly are entitled to it.

Wow I wish they would get the message about my thoughts on the price point of the omni package - clearly they are not onboard with my ideas on that
