Default Re: Eleven Rack Compatibility with MacOS Catalina

I have the editor working in Catalina 10.15.7 on a 2013 15" MacBook Pro and on a 2019 16" MacBook Pro. Doesn't work as a Pro Tools interface, but the editor shows up as standalone and in pro tools, and way easier to edit presets.

Tip that most people know, but if not:
Take whatever higher gain amp preset you kind of like, but doesn't sound great.
  • Add the Green JRC OD Distortion in front of the amp.
  • Turn Drive down to 1.8 or lower, level 10.0, and tone to taste.

I've found this takes a lot of so-so amp sims and makes them punchier and subjectively better - similar to what a lot of people do in real life to clean up the low end and add more mids. You could mess around and add a parametric EQ in front, but this is a lot easier...

Some old Macbook Pro have SPDIF input using (mini?) Toslink connector.
I ordered a coaxial/toslink converter and I will report back. Should be able to use the Eleven Rack in Protools without digital/analog/digital conversion

Good news for us Eleven Rack users... today's driver update fixes the Pro Tools playback issue on Catalina as well as the double monitoring issue (Guitar Input isn't muted when opening a session) on macOS and Win. Took a while but happy to have this released.

Does it fix the “Error initializing MIDI...” issue?

YES. And now after installing the new driver, instead of the MIDI Error, I now get this.

BTW- I don't see any new comments on the other thread where you suggest to continue conversation.
