BUT! If I get enough + votes I'll do it cuz the upgrades look good
I'm not a fan of multiple simultaneous versions of PT either (sharing PT Prefs files of different iterations can cause issues that might not be immediately recognized), but I can say that 2022.6 is stable and solid... so far. I wouldn't consider my 4 hours of testing comprehensive, but it's been smooth today.

Thanks Eric. Means a lot to me! And yes, multiple versions of PT seems to be taunting the hungry lion. If 2021.12 wasn't working so well for me I might feel different about experimenting. When I get my current project done (remixing old music from tape for a UK label's reissue of an old vinyl record of mine) I'll update!

Thanks

I am currently running the latest PT Ultimate on my M1 Mac Mini with 16GB Ram. I just ordered a Mac Studio Max with 32gb ram. What should I realistically expect to gain in performance over all?

I had a 16GB M1 Mac mini before I got my Mac Studio, so I'm pretty familiar with both. You can expect roughly twice the performance from the Mac Studio. It's not exactly twice as fast (single core processor speeds are nearly identical), but you do get twice as many performance cores and double the RAM with the Mac Studio, which equates to roughly twice as much processing power in Pro Tools. You'll be able to work with larger, more processor-intensive (plugins, virtual instruments, etc.) sessions on the Mac Studio than even the impressively capable M1 Mac mini can handle.

You'll also get a much faster on-chip bus, which will let you get audio in and out of the chip faster.

That was a relatively stable version for us as well. If nothing else, you could always fall back to it if the update isn't smooth. Keep that 2021.12 installer handy.

Just picked up a Mac Studio M1 Max. So far so good. Just a stock model with 32gb of ram.

Pro Tools seems to be ok on it. Plugins are ok. Any word on when we will be fully native?

None, and I don't think they'll let us know in advance. I think creation of the Native version will force Avid to look into dark closets in the PT code that they're hoping to avoid. Those may take some time to address.
