Re: Pt 2022.5?

I just updated and so far all is good. Tried playing back a few sessions and everything worked. Plugins seem to be working as before too.

Re: If you have a perpetual License

If one is prone to forget to renew the annual support plan, it may not be a bad idea to turn on automatic renewal. You can always turn it off if you make a conscious decision to not renew or want to...

Re: macOS 12.4?

It has been almost three days and I have not had any kernel panics since updating to macOS 12.4. So I'm happy about that.

Re: Video

What is that? Avid Protools Studio started with version 2022.4. The usual naming convention is the year followed by the month, and since there are only 12 months to a year, I don't know what the 19...

Re: macOS 12.4?

I had a little time and am not working on any projects at the moment so I decided to take the plunge. I was having a few kernel panics with 12.3.1 so was eager to try the update to macOS. The...

Re: New PT Studio License - Sub or Perpetual

One more factor to consider: If for some unfortunate reason, Avid goes out of business or discontinues Protools. Once the subscription license expires, you can't renew and you can no longer use...

Re: New PT Studio License - Sub or Perpetual

I would still go with Perpetual. If I decide to stop the annual support/upgrade and let it expire at some point, at least I can still use the frozen version. With a subscription, once I discontinue...

Re: 2022.4.0 won't load on Mac

This obvious but I didn't see it mention in this thread (maybe I missed it). Are your Native Instruments plugins updated to the latest (and confirmed to be M1/M1Max/M1Ultra compatible as well as...

Re: Pro Tools 8 LE with Mbox 2 on Monterey

A quick google shows that the Mbox2 was introduced in 2005 (17 years ago!) and discontinued in 2010 (12 years ago). Additionally, Protools LE's end of life was the end of 2014. OSX (now macOS) has...

Re: CPU Temps and Intel Turbo Boost

I'm pretty sure it is an Intel i9 issue. Most people experience the high fan speed and noise because the chip generates so much heat that it is necessary to dissipate that heat to avoid damaging the...

Re: The end of perpetual licenses

You bring up a very good point. I once had a DJ controller that used Torq software (which I liked). I think the controller was from M-Audio (My memory could be wrong). Anyways, long story short,...

Re: New Pro Tools Studio Sub VS Perpetual Pro Tools Ultimate

Perhaps a certain way to satisfy the question is to get a new subscription license of Pro Tools Studio for one month (without surrendering your existing perpetual Pro Tools Ultimate license) and do...

Re: Do perpetual users get GrooveCell and SynthCell?

Re: Protools Vanilla to Pro Tools Studio!

I'm on and Intel Mac still and am not seeing any instability or slowness. People hate it when this is suggested, but perhaps doing a clean install is called for. That means formatting the SSD/Hard...

Re: Protools Vanilla to Pro Tools Studio!

A quick check and previous sessions load and play. Plugins seem to be there and working. More testing will be needed but initial check seem to be fine.

Re: Protools Vanilla to Pro Tools Studio!

So I just installed Protools 2022.4 and the splash screen says Pro Tools Studio. I was looking for a separate installer for Pro Tools Studio, thinking it was different from Protools 2022.4, but it...

Re: New "Mac Studio" from Apple

Actually for Mac Studio with the M1 Max, 64 GB is the maximum RAM possible with 32GB being the minimum. (Only the M1 Ultra can have up to 128 GB)

Re: Preinstalled VST instruments?

As others have alluded to, Protools uses it's own proprietary format for plugins and virtual instruments. The use of the term "VST" is grossly misused. So many people use this term to refer to...

Re: MacBookPro Max Fan Noise

I believe the comments about little or no fan noise are for the original M1 computers. The M1Pro and M1 Max are higher performance processors and therefore generate more heat (still much less than...

Re: New "Mac Studio" from Apple

FYI: Every Apple Store will only stock two configurations of the Mac Studio. M1Max with 32GB RAM and 512 SSD or M1Ultra with 64GB RAM and 1TB SSD. Anything other than that, you will need to order...

Re: PT 2022 release?

I'm not arguing against your "bitter truth." If you are dissatisfied with Avid, stop using it and stop paying. If you don't find value in any of the updates, certainly don't continue to pay the...
