Smile PT 9.0.5 with Lion - unable to open other MIDI apps open as standalone

PT 9.0.5 with Lion and having these SW open as STANDALONE:
(Garage Band, Audio MIDI Setup AMS, Sibelius, Logic)

NONE of these applications will open unless I connect to my DIGI 002R AND a Pro Tools session is open.
Otherwise it gets stuck when trying to open those apps. I do not think thats' the way it's supposed to be.
Somewhere there might some sort of preference which overides ProTools' priority on this matter.

Each Application' individual message:

1 - AMS : "Audio MIDI setup couldn't open the MIDI server so you can't view or edit your MIDI configurations. If you recently installed a new MIDI driver, try uninstalling it and then open Audio MIDI setup again. If Audio MIDI setup works correctly after that, contact the driver's manufacture for further support"

2 - Logic : stuck on "checking MIDI drivers" ; "MAC OS X MIDI Services not available" is displayed when the Logic finally opens it.

3 - Main Stage 2 : stuck on "initializing MIDI" . "Unable to launch the MIDI Service"

4 - Sibelius 6 : "Error initialising OS X MIDI system"

5 - Garage Band : It actually opens !!!


"core audio", "aggregate", "audio devices", "MIDI Server" and "audio engine" are related to this issue. Will look for those on existing documentation that came with the SW

Any help is appreciated, though

MacBook Pro, DIGI 002R

Look in the General Troubleshooting thread and trash the specific Core Audio and MIDI preference files indicated in that thread, then restart and test again.

Hi, thanks for your reply!!

I believe you're refering to the link General Troubleshooting - Pro Tools LE Mac , since that's the closest match to my system.

As suggested there, I should delete these files and restart the system:
* com.digidesign.CoreAudioManager.plis
* com.apple.audio.AudioMIDISetup.plis
* com.apple.midi.a bunch of numbers and letters.plist'
* com.apple.audio.audiomidisetup.plist

However:
a) I cannot locate the 2 pathes suggested ("Mac HD > Users > (Your User Name) > Library > Preferences" and "MacHD>Users>your account>Library>Preferences>By Host")
b) I do find some "com.digidesign" and "com.apple" files at "Mac HD > Library > Preferences" but, still, cannot find ANY of the files suggested to be trashed.

Thanks!!!
Mac OS X Lion 10.7.1

I'm afraid that doesn't apply to PT 9.0.5 with Lion ...

Please remember I have already dowloaded and installed a month ago the following drivers as recommended by Avid
(MIDI has been working fine on Pro Tools sessions by the way)

a) DigiDioMidiDriver.plugin Fix v9.0 for 003 and 002 Family
b) MIDI I/O driver for Mac (v90_69602)
c) 002 and 003 family Drivers v9.0

Yes, it does apply. You have to enable viewing of the Users>Library folder. The Pro Tools 9.0.5 Read Me has information on how to do this in Lion.

Default Re: PT 9.0.5 with Lion - unable to open other MIDI apps open as standalone

I'm having the same problem. If you delete "DigiDioMidiDriver.plugin" from HD>Library>Audio>MIDI Drivers everything works fine, except that you lose your interfaces MIDI I/O. (The library folder is hidden, so you have to go to Finder alt+click the "go" menu, and choose the library folder from there.)

I'm really irritated by this since I use both Sibelius and Pro Tools throughout the day and I need my Digi002's MIDI ports operational because I control my guitar rig with Pro Tools. The "DigiDioMidiDriver.plugin Fix v9.0 (Mac) for 003 and 002 Family [0.23 MB]" doesn't solve anything. It just writes the same "DigiDioMidiDriver.plugin"-file back to where it was and messes up the MIDI-functionality.

Anybody know about a solution?

Have you tried deleting the preference files I referred to in my previous post?

Hi,

Sorry for my poor english

I have also the same problem. When I was on PT 8.0.5 there is no issue.
Impossible to run GarageBand and all SW like arturia standalone and other

Since I am on PT 9.0.5 I have always the same problem but I found a solution

1) I run audio and midi setup
2) I select Digidesign HW (003) and I config HP when I click on left HP or right HP, Digi CoreAudio Manager comes on Dock

After that all runs fine, I can close audio and midi setup

I think there is a problem because "Digi CoreAudio" makes crash Lion's midi server.

Vincent

My config :
Imac 27" I7 3,4Ghz, 16Go, OS 10.7.2
PT 9.0.5, 003R+
