Re: Is the screen Redraws feeling sluggish to anybody else

I totally agree with you that this past year has been problematic with the 2021 versions of Protools on the Mac platform (both M1 and Intel). Avid has not got it right. There are clearly issues...

Re: Is the screen Redraws feeling sluggish to anybody else

I get the frustration that Rectifried is experiencing. I've been using Protools for about 17 years and honestly must admit that Avid (and Digidesign prior to that) are among the slower companies to...

Re: Is the screen Redraws feeling sluggish to anybody else

Yeah. New issues every release. I think the cause this time around is Apple introducing the M1 (Apple Silicon) processors. Avid (no longer Digidesign) is trying make Protools compatible, but for...

Re: MIDI selection slowdown

Is this the same as the GUI lagging and freezing that many are reporting with Protools 2021.6 or 2021.7? I think those are usually with audio tracks or with the UI in general. This thread seems to...

Re: Is the screen Redraws feeling sluggish to anybody else

Several people have also reported screen lag and even freezing. We have not been able to pinpoint the source but the latest versions of Protools (2021.6 and 2021.7) definitely seem to bring out...

Re: Waves and M1

I'm not sure where you got that information from but it is simply wrong. Currently Protools 2021.7 does require Rosetta2 to work on an M1 based Mac. Many people are running Protools on an M1 Mac so...

Re: Waves and M1

Rosetta is automatically running if the Mac receives Intel instructions. It is an Intel emulator that runs behind the scenes on a M1 Mac. Just load Protools as if you are on an Intel Mac and it...

Re: Waves and M1

So if I'm am interpreting this correctly, Waves released a new V13 with M1 native support, however to be able to run Waves plugins natively on an M1 Mac, it must be running a DAW also with native M1...

Re: Who else is still using a Mac Pro 5,1 or older computer?

There is no requirement to go "subscription" for Big Sur. You can continue with an active perpetual upgrade and support plan. If your perpetual plan has lapsed however, you can still buy a new...

Re: Pro Tools won't play, Errors AE -6009 and AE -6117

Yes. Protools does not like to share. The audio device that you use for Protools should not be used for other applications (YouTube, Spotify, MP3 playback apps and regular Windows sounds. Leave...

Re: What Metal compatible video card should I get?

Please ignore this post as I posted the same question on the Protools 2021 forum. I tried to delete one of the posts but it did not get removed. People have replied in that forum so this one is...

Re: Anyone running 2021 on old cheesegraters?

Thanks for the links to the resources concerning OpenCore. I'll study those before proceeding. I still need to get a video card first.

For others that have done OpenCore, is the install daunting? Are there many options to choose or is it pretty much accept all the defaults? What is the latest MacOS that it can run?

As for the...

Re: 2021.7 on OS X 11.6

Or just attach an external SSD and do a clean install of the OS and Protools to test. If all goes well, install it to your primary drive. If not, wait until a new version comes out.
