Re: certain plugins crashing PT

Hi, welcome to the community.

Yes, you are right. Even one badly behaving plugin may crash PT even if it is only loaded into memory and not used in a session. That however should be addressed by...

Yes, and also send a message to such vendors that you would like to have iLok authorization to make reinstalls easier. Machine (serial number or challenge-response) authorizations are really not...

Re: How many people have wiped their computer and done a completely clean is installl

Yes, I really manually reinstall everything once a year. That is why I have less problems than average Tom, Dick and Harry.

I also check if there are plugin updates EVERY single time I update PT...

Re: Pro Tools HD 12.5 compatibility

If you have license for 12.6 or later, you can get it from Avid Download Center. If you have license for 12.5 or earlier, you can get it from Avid Support.

Re: How many people have wiped their computer and done a completely clean is installl

Another note.

Once you have a fully working system, make a clone of it. Many swear CCC is the best there is, but have a solid backup you can revert to in case of any problems.

But with that...

Re: How many people have wiped their computer and done a completely clean is installl

I do it every year.

Once the major update is out, plan ahead. Do not go for dot-zero release but instead wait until dot-one or dot-two.

Then first do the upgrade Apple-way if you have libraries...

Re: 192 to HD I/O upgrade

Exactly.

If you do cables yourself, driving -10 should be using ground and hot pins only, not connecting hot and cold together. This is the most importan point, and which is why the original...

Re: 192 to HD I/O upgrade

If you want to be 100% sure, create a support case and ask Avid Support to confirm, but if memory serves me right you can use normal cable with Avid HD interface even if you connect to -10

Re: 2021.7 won't open & Older versions no longer available

Before clean install it is useful to throw all plugins to unused folder and try again. Even a single bad behaving plugin may cause that. But if it happens with stock plugins only, then yes, clean...

Re: PT 2021.7 GUI Freezing

It seems to be OS glitch around windowserver daemon process, which means your only remedy will be a clean install of OS and every software you have (without using any automated migration tool).

Re: Promo for perpetual license holders

In a nutshell this deal gives you best of both worlds. Writing is on the wall already, at some date in the future all PT licenses are likely to be subscription only. So they will allow you to keep...

If you have subscription license, you have current version. If you have perpetual license, you can use any version released on or before RELEASE_LIMIT date of your license.
