Default Experiences with 10.1.2?

Is this update causing as many problems as it is solving??
Im kinda getting a mixed feeling when browsing around in the forum...
Im on 10.0.1 and can live with the bugs im having right now.

Is this a step up or down in your opinion?

Don't take my experience as the last word, but I just installed 10 the other day, and immediately updated to 10.0.1 and then 10.1.2 before I even attempted to run a session. So far, after 2 afternoons of mild abuse, all seems to be working nicely. By "mild abuse" I mean a couple of sessions with 20-30 audio tracks, 3 stereo Instrument tracks(Addictive Drums, DB-33 and MiniGrand) and a couple of reverb tracks, with some added AUX sends for headphone mixes and such. With a click track and several EQ III instances, and an amp sim. I ran it thru straight recording for several minutes(64 buffer) while playing drums(Roland kit) and keyboards. No hiccups so far after the initial run of the demo session. After closing that and trashing prefs, its been solid and I am ready to test on my next adventurous client
HP Z4 workstation, Mbox Studio

The better I drink, the more I mix

BTW, my name is Dave, but most people call me.........................Dave

So far, I had a few of the usual GUI freezes from all versions of pt10HD. I think I found a notation display bug where you can't edit any midi notation notes while in play or the sequencer engine shuts down. You can actually save your work and reboot the program and you are good to go. Everything else seems ok.

I'm running HD through a Maudio Audiophile 192 pci card on Win 7

Horrible experience, the only reason I've signed up here to get some help now.
But I've put that in a separate thread as I don't want to hi-jack this one.

(I would put a link in to the thread but it's awaiting moderation)

To answer my own thread i upgraded to 10.1.2 but I went back to 10.0.1.

A horrible bug i had in 10.0 was present again. Edit window looses foreground position when a clip is highlighted. Så when a clip is highlighted i cant use keyboard short cuts. Cant even use spacebar before i click elsewhere in the session. I made a seperate thread: http://duc.avid.com/showthread.php?t=321128
No one has this problem??

Also the tracks i had with kontakt on them, in the session i tested, messed up Pro Tools. It was some pretty memory heavy strings and pianos. After a few start and stops, the sound screwed up completely and Pro Tools stalled and said i was running out of cpu power which couldn't be true (10-15 tracks).

Furthermore, either of the problems i have in 10.0.1 was fixed in 10.1.2 so im back in 10.0.1. :/

So i dont know if I would recommend updating with this one. But you can try. it took an hour or so to test it out. Im gonna wait till the next one.

Right at the beginning, i had a problem where PT 10.1.2 (Lion 10.7.3) would not open, although it had opened okay prior to this. This happened twice and the log showed that PT library could not be found.
Was expecting 10.1.2 but only showed 9. I have a PT 9 and 10 bundle, dont know if thats relevant.
I uninstalled and did a clean install and it seems to be okay but i,m still nervy about it.
I have downloaded another PT installer in case the first one was corrupt.
PT seems to be okay, so i,m till deciding whether to uninstall and do another clean install.
Not a confident start.
