In my opinion the way to go is to have two separate partitions. One for working and the other for testing new stuff

Just installed 2019.12 on a brand new (cheesegrater) Mac Pro. PT seems fine for strictly audio workflows, but it's nearly useless for me, as I do post-production and need the video abilities to work. Anyone heard any rumors of when PT will be fully compatible with Catalina? I obviously can't downgrade the new machine to Mojave, so I'm stuck doing all of my production work on my old Mac Pro trashcan. It's like getting a new Ferrari, driving it around the block and parking it in the garage to sit.

You can install 2019.12 on a Mojave machine and not have to worry about the 32/64 issues. You don't need Catalina to run it. I did on a 10.14.6 Mini and it's working fine so far. Have both 2019.10 installed as well just in case.

I know this doesn't answer your question, but I saw a note from Pro-Tools Expert regarding using "Video Slave 4" to address this issue.

I followed their link and noticed the vendor offers two versions. It looks like there are demo versions for both Video Slave 4 and Video Slave Pro. You can subscribe or buy a perpetual license.

Might be an option for you or somebody else. Disclaimer: I have no relationship to Pro Tools Expert or the software vendor. I have not uses/tested. Simply trying to be helpful.

tried 3-4 songs with 125-150 tracks with somewhere around 50 VI and as usual alot of automizations and plugins but many bounce’d audio aswell with the awesome outboard gear and 2019.12 runs like a champ on both Trashcans with 10.14.6 and 10.13.6 both PT Ultimate and 12 core 64GB Ram with 1TB internal SSD’s and Tbolt SSD’s.

I should mention half of the plugins are UAD-2 and runs DSP from X8P’s and Satellite Octo and Quad.

No issues here. I'm trying to break it with Omnisphere, and while the CPU usage is still higher than I'd like, after a cursory look, it appears to handle VI's a bit better.

This is all anecdotal, of course. YMMV...

We run 2019.12 ultimate on macOS 10.13.6 and I even tried on Sierra 10.12.6 and worked grrrrrreat!

This version looks very promising as long as you dont have Catalina and do video.

Update - Internal speakers work fine, it's the Eleven Rack. Will see online if Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 v2 is supported and may need to switch to that.

Hopefully the Eleven Rack drivers are updated shortly, but I know that it was time for a new I/O in 2020...
Did you upgrade the OS to Catalina? Is the Eleven Rack compatible with the new Pro Tools Version?

Thanks

Yeah tried on my personal Mac Pro as our new 2019/2020 Mac Pro’s are do for delivery Jan 3rd and we needed to know what works and what doesn’t in this initial release as the new Macs comes with Catalina. We ran it on a new SSD drive.

And Eleven Rack is a no right now.
