    Composer 2020.6 No System/Playback Sound

    I have Pro Tools co-install, as outlined on Avid's guidelines. Installed Pro Tools Ultimate 2020.5, run Pro Tools first fully to build the plugins. I set system input and output to Pro Tools Aggregate, in Apple system preferences. I have setup in midi/audio setup, in the Pro Tools Aggregate my USB Audio interface, SSL 2+, drivers are built in as it's USB Class complient.

    Rebooted installed Avid Media Composer 2020.6, I have no Hardware I/O such as Blackmagic, just software only for Media Composer. I can see my audio meters with-in media Composer, but no sound coming out my speakers. 

    If I open any other application Pro Tools, I-Tunes, Blackmagic Da Vinci Resolve, Quicktime player. I can hear sound playing through my speakers but nothing through Media Composer? However, if I go to the Apple icon, top right, into system preferences, sound and set the output/playback to SSL2+ (my usb audio interface) and not Pro Tools Aggregate, I can hear sound in Media Composer?

    So it seems I need to keep switching back and forth when usiing Media Composer, why would Media Composer not like to use the Pro Tools Aggregate as my audio in/out in Apple system preferences?

    Thanks,

    Leo

    Because protools and avid share the same engine. No reason to use pro tools aggreagate unless you are using pro tools hardware, Leave it on Native Mac audio for everything.

    Thanks so much! I wasn't sure if I should have been using the Pro Tools Aggregate or the SSL2+ Native Mac audio. This is really helfpul, all working fine now thank you.

    Kind regards,
