Default Re: Monterey Beta Testers?

I know this has been discussed many times, however has anyone recently been able to find out how to downgrade a mac that is shipped with Monterey to Big Sur?

Ah ok, so if I scrub it & put Big Sur on, at least the full AVID catalog of plugins work? Is that relatively straightforward to do?

Its such a shame as literally everything else I've installed on it today (Davinci Resolve, Premiere Pro, Lightroom Classic, Photoshop, After Effects, Logic Pro, Final Cut, Blender, Affinity Photo, Pixelmator) all run *so* much better than they have ever done before on my Intel Macs....& Pro Tools won't even boot with its own plugins ��

Ah Avid....

Since your 2020 Mac Mini came out initially with Big Sur you can install Big Sur on it. There is nothing specific to Pro Tools here and there are lots of tutorials online explaining how to do a full clean install of macOS (or a downgrade, they are the same). It’s also been covered on DUC many times before. You need to first work out if you want/need to keep the Monterey install (eg for other app compatibility or future testing) and set up dual boot or if you want to only have Big Sur installed. If you are relying on the current install for work things and you have disk space I would start with doing a dual-boot setup… installing Big Sur in a new APFS container (the sexy new thing which is like a clever disk partition) on your internal boot drive. Googling for APFS container or installing macOS into a new container should find you lots of info.
