Default Error [MIDIServer patch file, bank, or mode information not...]

I've recently changed setup from windows to mac and I took the opportunity to change from protools verion 10 to 11. My main issue right now, which didn't happened with version 10 is that every time I try to set a pacth from any of my external devices thru a midi track I get the following error:

"MIDIServer patch file, bank, or mode information not available for this MIDI instrument"

For what I've been searching this is a known bug in protools 11 I wonder if anyone with same issue and same version has resolved it. I wrote to Avid but since I don't have a "Avid Advantage Support entitlement plan" they will not give any help or answer.

Unfortunately that is a PT11 bug on the Mac that was not remedied until version 12. Something got hosed in the transition to 64bit. I vaguely remember that if you configured your MIDI patch lists in PT10, they would stick when you upgraded to 11, but you could not set them up/change them in 11. I wrestled with that issue for 18 months before they finally fixed it. I think the best advice at this point is to get current with PT2018. Probably not what you want to hear. PT2018 has a lot of very useful new features, plus you'll get compatible with newer releases of the MacOS,

Thank you so much for the answer Chucks, just what I feared. This is such a bummer. I've been working with Protools for almost 20 years either in studio or at home, at the beginning because it was the standard, afterwards because you get used to and lately because I got a nice deal when purchasing PT10/11. I'm afraid time has come to end for me with PT.

I think you can have both PT10 and PT11 installed on the same machine. If so, try to configure your patch list files in 10 and see if they show up in 11. OTT, if you're using a lot of outboard MIDI modules and keyboards, you really don't have many options if you want to use patch lists. DP probably has the best patch list implementation. PT is good and I don't know about Cubase or Ardour (MixBus), but those are pretty much your only options (you can use patch lists in Logic, but ????). VIs are where everyone else is focused. Unless you've seen something elsewhere that you're attracted to, a PT upgrade is your path of least resistance (learning curve and $$).
