Default Why are so many of you beta testing 6.X & OSX??

I am seeing a very high # of:
"incompatibility issues", "crashes", "no omf", "scsi issues", "dae error this, error that", "bug this, bug that", "boot errors", "midi errors", "plugin issues", etc............

Why put up w/ it?? Are you struggling while on a clients dime or while they are present? To me it seems as if, this is the most buggy transition digi has come across yet and that is taking into consideration, the OSX(garbage) & PT6 combination!! [img]images/icons/confused.gif[/img]

Honestly, I've been using PT 6 since it was a beta. Other then a few window size issues, it's been rock solid for me.

Ron Wasserman.

I have the same setup as u. I have the new dual though, Mix cube, AND an old dsp farm.

I've had some blackouts. PT simply hangs or disapears. My suspicion goes towards my ram. What and how much do you hve installed?

HD3/G4867 dual/ PT6.01 working great, no major problems, nothing never seen before!

The ability to jump back and forth between Final Cut Pro and PT is fantastic.

Also, the new Digibase file browser significantly cuts the time necessary to audition & create audio tracks from CD - you just drag them from the CD onto a PT track, and poof! there it is.

6.0 has been rock solid everyday since installed. I've been working on 3-4 different projects, that all came from different rigs.

001/44.1-24
3 Core 44.1/16 changed to 88.2-24 for Overdubs and Mix
Mix Rig 44.1-24
HD3/5.3.1. 88.2-24

I’m on a HD3/733QS my cpu is slightly less responsive, to be understood with OSX. It did crash/freeze once in the past few weeks. I was importing 50 tracks of bgs into a huge session and it froze, rebooted and it never happen again.

There were some really dire scsi performance issues with the sessions that started on the 16 voice 16-bit machine. The “SSCI” fixed that. My firewire drive performance seems better than ever, 100+ tracks at 44.1.
The only drag is rebooting into 9 to use Jam.

All in all, I think it’s been pretty painless and the new features are nice to have. Some of the problems with these “problematic” rigs might have more to do with the maintence of OSX.

Other things to check out:

Repair Privileges
Boot w/ apple+s and run “fsck –y”….then “reboot”
And the best is Disk Warrior, boot and fix in 9 until the new version hits.
