Default Re: Sonoma 14.5

I'm still on Ventura 13.4. Is it safe for my Intel Mac 7,1 to update to Sonoma?

Default Re: Sonoma 14.5

I wouldn't.... I had BAD luck with sonoma and I just spent the weekend starting fresh with Ventura on my M2 Max.

Certain shortcuts I use often weren't working. For example, I like to right click on a track, quickly type "d", hit return, and that deletes the track. Sonoma doesn't respond to typing in the popup menu, and if you scroll down in that menu too far, the entire thing disappears and you have to start over. Some soundflow scripts were completely out of commission as well, probably related to these menu issues.

The Aux IO/Audio Bridge feature is broken/very unstable in sonoma. It would work occasinoally, but usually I was just getting a garbled mess when I tried to use the external Dolby renderer through Dolby Audio Bridge, or tried to send mac audio to Audio Bridge 2A.

All of that is fixed now that I'm back in Ventura. Otherwise I guess Sonoma was fine, and no more/less stable than ventura. I still had my typical 3-4 crashes a day, which i'm already getting with my brand new clean install of Ventura. I have to have too many plugins installed for session compatibility!


When I get a moment, I think I'm going to fire up the "old" PC to see if it is still as rock solid as it was when I went back to mac full time when the M2 came out. That thing would go weeks without a single crash, could use old versions of plugins without restarting PT in rosetta, and never threw CPU overload errors.

It's been solid here for about a week. No issues that I've noticed.

Thanks, guys. Hmm... I better stay put then.
I gotta admit, PT's been pretty stable with my current setup.
Just not looking forward to Intel Macs' demise...

If your system is stable at Ventura, park it there. The new OS are made for ARM not Intel.

I for sure would stay where you are. Sonoma has been horrendous for me and my 7,1 and it is a pain in the butt to go back.


DON'T DO IT BRO!!!


Seriously!!!!!

We dont recommend it as you will experience issues. Everyone on this thread has at one point of another by going ahead with an OS never tested with that version.

Use at own risk but DONT DO IT!

I hate to quote myself, but... really, the days of Intel hardware are numbered.
