Mac OS and Pro Tools

Post by TapeOpLarry » Thu Dec 27, 2018 12:14 pm

Am I on crack or is Pro Tools still not compatible with Mac OS Mojave? WTF is going on over there?

That’s what I’ve heard. But then I’m still on Sierra (and stuck there I believe unless I upgrade my video card in my old Mac Pro) so I’m not yet concerned.

Outside of those with brand new Macs, is Mojave widely adopted yet? I always subscribed to the idea of staying an OS version behind when possible. I assumed there’s a lot more folks in Pro audio hanging on to older systems than buying new ones.

I also try to stay one to two versions behind on the OS. ... lity-Chart

Audio guy by education and now hobby. IT support by profession. Professional opinion: ALWAYS stay back at least a version or so on production machines. Avoids a lot of headaches. Heck, I'm personally running ProTools 11 and OS 10.10, and I only updated because of an interface upgrade that didn't play nice with OS 10.8.

Avid doesn't seem to have updated to support Mojave yet. There aren't any killer features in Mojave and Apple is still updating and patching several major versions back, so if you're running ProTools 12 or 2018, you should be able to run it on one version or another of 10.13 anyhow.

I'm using Pro Tools 2018.12 on Mojave, no problems, was using 2018.10 for about a month before that.

I have macOS Mojave 10.14 And as far as I understood from the support reply, it's not supported with Pro Tools at this time.
