Default HD Native and Lion : anyone?

Hi, anyone using Lion with their HD Native system yet? What with iOS5 out and the iCloud not working with anything pre-Lion, the time is getting closer and closer to switch.......or is it?

Default Re: HD Native and Lion : anyone?

I'm wondering the same thing. I do have Lion installed on the 3 other computers in the studio and pro tools 9.0.5 does work on them but I'm iffy about upgrading my main machine. I was originally planning on waiting til it was all officially qualified but I too want to use iCloud!

I am using Native with an Omni and a 192 on a Mac Pro 2.8 8 core and it is really, really stable. None of the 9000 series errors anymore and very snappy.
I was pushed onto Lion by Apple replacing my machine but I have no regrets.
I have not checked out the iCloud thing yet.
PS, I run video off another older Mac Pro so I cannot comment on what it is like pushing picture and audio out at the same time.

The question you need to ask yourself:

Do you really need your HD machine to be up to date with your iPhone?


I understand if you are running a Macbook that is also your Facebook/Email/iTunes machine... but with all of the time and money you've invested on a powerful HD tool, do you really want to potentially compromise it by installing a few gimmicks?

I'm still not sold on Lion, but I also don't have an iPhone so I have no reason to go past 10.6.5.

As always, if you're feeling brave... Make sure you have a backup plan. Clone your system drive, or pull it out completely and install a new one fresh. That way you can just swap the drive if Lion sucks.

Yeah I'm totally with you on the gimmicks, it was only the sync'ing of email that I'd miss really. Will probably hold off for 2 years like I did with Snow Leopard to be honest. ;-)

Bingo! I'm going to copy that procedure. Thanks all.

Default Re: HD Native and Lion : anyone?

I went to Lion after the PT10 announcement last night. Haven't purchased the upgrade yet as I feel Native users got a little burned and want to see how everything shakes out.

Anyway, I'm between paid projects and figured I could use the time to test Lion and PT9.0.5 on personal stuff to see how it operates. I've been hitting it fairly hard all day and so far it's great. The whole machine (PT included) feels faster and more responsive than with Snow Leopard. And that's after doing an upgrade and not a fresh OS install as recommended. I also re-ran the 9.0.5 full installer after the upgrade to make sure everything was in place.

I've mostly been editing but I have recorded a few tracks on moderately dense sessions with the buffer at 64 and I haven't had any problems. No crashes, no beach balls... Looks promising.

Your milage may vary and my evidence is anecdotal, but I thought I'd share my experience.

-- btw, I agree with keeping extra apps and stuff off the main rig as much as possible, but I did want the iCloud/iOS integration and my iTunes library won't fit on the MacBook with out an external drive for the media. I'm not willing to add an extra drive to anything that needs to be portable.

If you don't mind me asking, is that the 2008 Mac Pro (Harpertown) you're running? If so, that's great news because I'm running that machine and am thinking of switching to HD Native.
