Default PT 12.6 HDX with OS Sierra.

I'm using mac pro 6 cores, mid 2012, protools 12.6 hdx 2. Clean installed Sierra and PT 12.6. Tried to play some session and I mentioned unbelievable high CPU usage. Up to 70%. Same session played in Yosemite up to 14% only. If anyone plan to upgrade, please be considered!

12.6 HDX2 here on Sierra and Mac Pro Trashcan with 9-15 % usage on average.

There has to be something else with your system there.

Not all manufacturers plugins are working with Sierra. Could be that.

I also believe this to be the case. What is frustrating is that we do not have a list of Sierra Approved plugins.

Even if the plugins are not instantiated in a session, they can affect Pro Tools performance. As to why, that's above my pay grade.
