    Idea [I] Mac OS X 10.9 (Maverick) | Support for MC, PT and Sibelius

    Mac OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) | support for MC, PT and Sibelius

    Mac OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) was just released by Apple.  With the announcement of this new OS -  Mac OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) operating system - there are known issues with Media Composer 7.x , Pro Tools 11.x and Sibelius 7.x at this time. 

    It is not recommended that any customers use Mac OS X 10.9 as the OS is not "officially" supported with Avid software at this time.  It is recommended that customers use what we do recommend which can be found on the Knowledge base or the Product pages for each product.

    Avid will announce support for Mac OS X 10.9 with future releases of Media Composer, Pro Tools and Sibelius software.

    Full KNowledge Base Article is here:http://avid.force.com/pkb/articles/en_US/troubleshooting/Mac-OS-10-9-support-for-Media-Composer-Pro-Tools-Sibelius 

    Questions, let me know.

    But as a side note, I STRONGLY RECOMMEND that Mac users purchase and download 10.9 BUT NOT INSTALL IT.

    This will be your only opportunity to get the base OS 10.9 version.  Once Apple releases 10.9.1, you won't be able to get 10.9, and depending on how fast Avid qualifies 10.9.1, you may be stuck.

    So, purchase 10.9 now, but hold onto the installer until you want to upgrade.  Then you can always download the "Combo" updaters from Apple to get to the version you want.

    Are there plans to qualify MC 6 or 6.5 with 10.9 or just 7?

    Thanks :)

    7.x to start...... no idea on 6 or 6.5 but 7.x is first.

    Good to know. We'd probably run 7.0 on those new Mac Pros when they get here anyways ;)

    The Mac Pros aren't available until December.  Avid doesn't get pre-release models to play with, so it would be some time after that.

    I hope the existing Nitris DX will still be supported on the New Mac Pro via a Thunderbolt 2 Pci expansion chassis. I plan on upgrading to the new Mac Pro when they are released.

    Not sure I can answer this definatively yet as we have to wait and see what the new Mac's bring tech wise but the plan would be to support that.

    Re: Mac OS X 10.9 (Maverick) | Support for MC, PT and Sibelius

    This may seem like a dumb question but where and how can you download the software "without" it automatically installing? I can't seem to find a "download only" option anywhere.

    Thanks!

    I'm sorry to come off appearing as dim but I just followed your instructions and then quite the installer but I can't seem to locate the downloaded file anywhere. Can I trouble you for just a litte more guidance (I'm sure others might find this helpful as well)?

    Hi.

    Once downloaded the installer will appear in your applications folder.

    Do a search / Find for Install OS X Mavericks.

    FWIW it downloaded here into the Applications folder
