Re: Any chance for a break on Perpetual license renewal

What did you purchase as a "renewal?" Is your support plan active or has it lapsed? Please be very specific.

A "reinstatement" is for those that have lapsed support plans for their perpetual...

Re: Any chance for a break on Perpetual license renewawal

Uh...How do you plan to get an M1 MAX Mac for less than $1200?

The least expensive M1 Max based Mac is the Mac Studio with M1 Max with 10 core CPU, 24 core GPU, 32 GB unified memory, and 512 GB...

Re: Pro Tools Compatibility with macOS 13 Ventura

Just to be clear, you can only downgrade back to the version of the OS that the model of the Mac was released with (now when you bought it, but when it was first made available for sale). You cannot...

Re: New DAW Setup – 2022 iMac 24” Ok?

I also have a Mac Studio with the M1Max and there is no whine from mine. This issue may only affect some earlier units so if you go with a Mac Studio, make sure to try it out extensively in the...

Re: GUI Bug Pro Tools 2022.10

Now I may be dense. The two images appear to be of the same clip (just different zoom levels). I'm seeing similar peaks and wave shapes in both. Perhaps the audio is different but the dynamics...

Re: Mbox Studio Converters???

Forgive me if this is obvious to some but I'm not up to speed with the specifics. Assuming what we have been saying in general that Thunderbolt audio interfaces perform equally as USB3/4 audio...

Re: Mbox Studio Converters???

Just to make sure that I am understanding this thread (in regards to Thunderbolt's future), are we saying that it looks like there will be no new audio interfaces using Thunderbolt anymore?

Re: Slow loadin pro tools and plug-ins

As stated previously, the fact that you say a Sandra report won't work, indicates there is something not right about your computer/OS/etc. That is probably negatively affecting Protools.

Re: Transitioning from Cheesegrater to Mac Studio: a few questions

While SATA SSDs may be fast enough for you. There are faster options if you are interested. Your Mac Studio has 4 Thunderbollt ports on the back and you can get a Thunderbolt chassis to add one or...

Re: Error Launching Video Engine

In the future, I would avoid doing an update in the middle of a project. There can be a lot of things that go wrong. It is not worth the risk. Updates can wait.

In my case, I try to have two...

Re: Kudos to Avid for 2022.9

Windows 10 works fine with Protools. You can search Microsoft to find what features are in Windows 11 and then decide if it is worth it for you to update.

Re: 2022.9 is here!

Loaded PT 2022.9 on macOS 12.6 on both a 2017 Intel MacBook Pro i7 and a Mac Studio with M1 Max. Everything loads up so far. I still have some plugins to install on the Mac Studio but no errors when...

Re: HD Native Power Supply

That what I was thinking also. As for keeping the laptop plugged in, it seems that the batteries in modern laptops need to replaced in about 3-5 years regardless if they are allowed to run down...

Re: Mac Studio - Separate Drive?

I did a little digging and found that it seems the Intel Macs with the T2 chips are the ones that have a security setting that prevents booting from an external drive. In other words:

Hmm. I had a MacPro that was 4,1 but firmware upgraded to 5,1. It's been a while but if I recall, the RAM was oddly installed with six 1 GB sticks at the time or purchase. There are 8 memory...
