Default Mac Pro 5,1 Hex core HDX - Best Macosx upgrade from El Capitan?

Hey,

I want to upgrade to an Avid support Macosx. I currently use El Capitan, on a 3.46ghz hex core with 32gb ram, and SSDs for all drives. Runs well, but need to be more up to date with protools, and noticed that 2019.10 is not supported on 10.11 macosx. Cant find any download links that work for Sierra, or High Sierra, so any help finding those would help also.

Thanks in advance for any advice/experience.

If your support plan is active, you should have the links on your account.avid.com and if it has lapsed you need to renew your support plan.

I'm guessing OP is not looking for PT installers, but MacOS installers, Janne.
Belolab; I'm on old HW/SW myself, so I'm not very able to help.

Sorry, missed that. Obviously you need to go to Apple App Store and search for it, then download, and google how to make USB installer.

It looks like they are hiding the old OS installers to gently recommend the new one.

Try this anyway

Apple is not hiding the installers... On Apple Support you will find Sierra and High Sierra...and the links to the app store for old macs, which cannot run Mojave or higer....

How come? If you cannot find them by App Store search but can download coming from link outside? Call it what you want, but I call it hiding.
