Default Which OS?

I am renewing my Pro Tools perpetual license. Currently I'm running Sonoma 14.2, I see that requirements are for 14.3 to be installed. In my computers updates, it will let me update to 14.4. Will 14.4 Sonoma work with Pro Tools 2023, or will 14.2 be ok?

Thanks

My take on this is you just cannot and should not worry about compatibility with minor releases. Focus on at being on at least the minimum macOS version. You just cannot hope to keep things compatible all the time. And you likely should be taking minor security updates... done carefully when not working on critical stuff.

Its pretty rare that a minor update will break something and if it does lots of folks are likely to complain about it.

True, but that did happen recently. 14.3.9 (I believe that was it, though possible 14.4) broke iLok (among other things) for many people, and it introduced some other weirdness in my system that is now fixed in 14.4.1. This particular version has been strong for the past few days, without any glitches or oddness of any kind. It, in tandem with PT 2024.3, is running great.

You're suggesting I update to 14.4 and go for it then?

I would upgrade to the latest. Eric provides a useful warning so you can Google around and see if you think issues people have seen change your plans. Most of the recent iLok/macOS problems seem to have affected Logic Pro users. While asking if there are known issues is OK, you should also working on your google skills, if there are problems folks will be complaining about them.

And the main google skill is to use the

site: duc.avid.com

qualifier to search only DUC.

No upgrade should be high-risk drama. You should have the ability to easy/quickly roll back to your previous config. Have multiple clone backups, kept offline, be able to boot off the clone(s) if there are problems and be running again in minutes.

Mostly Logic but also UA users. My account wasn't affected but many were. Thankfully 14.4.1 fixed that too.
