Default Sonoma Safe on Intel Mac Pro?

I'm wondering if there are users here that is on a Mac Intel on Sonoma?
Is it functioning properly with PT 2024.3?
Thanks!

It totally is. Your milage may vary but I trust it totally on Intel, at least that my experience. Make sure you turn off all of the perviously mentioned peripheral bloat and you'll be fine. Also clear your plugin cache and let it rediscover.

Hey! I totally don't bother mapping any of the vintage keyboards. Performances are tracked live. For mapping and deep midi work I use soft synths. Best of both worlds and the contrast stands out.

I'd suggest it's either a plugin issue or not enough ram during heavy load.
IK products still do that to me from time to time even with 64 GB. Otherwise it's very smooth sailing on my intel rig.

Try the usual, clear caches and prefs. If that does not help, the old standby- dump out your plugin folder and add a few back at a time to find the culprit.

Also sounds like you tricked your rig to install 14 on an unsupported machine. That could be an issue as well. Been there done that.

Avoiding the time burn above, I'd start with cleaning plugin cache and let PT rediscover, it may complain and then you'll have your answer.

I think I'll stick to Ventura for now. Not having any major issues at the moment.

Good idea, that's what I'm doing. Give this a read:
https://avidtech.my.salesforce-sites...rue&popup=true

PT has a list of issues they've outlined. I particularly don't like the high core count issue on Intels. I'll wait, Ventura runs great and it's still supported by Apple with incremental security patching.
