2019.5 is running smoothly on 2018 Mac Mini during my initial tests. Deleting tracks and adding/removing inserts without playback cutouts is definitely a welcome improvement.

Just got done with a 7 hour session with no problems at all(2019.5). It ran like a champ. Stability seems improved. About 500 hours of sessions is the only way to be sure. SO far so good

Interesting. I'll take it for a test spin on the MBP in a while!

I'm still getting the random 9173 error when CPU is at 10%

No noticeable difference in stability compared to 2018.12

Did you uninstall 2018.12 before installing 2019.5?

How about you others reporting stability. Did you uninstall?

I didn't uninstall, no reason to on mac os.

Over on the DUC there are many other users who are also reporting the classic 9173 error that is still there even though CPU is not running out of power.

Apart from this error popping up once today it is stable.
But 2018.12 was very stable for me as well (apart from the 9173 error popping up once or twice a day)

Great, thanks. I’m on Mac. I Plan on installing today.

No uninstall here.
Just spent 8 hours mostly writing @64 samples buffersize, Kontakt, Omnisphere, EZDrummer, no hang, no crash, wasted less time on the usual and unusual Midi Bugs, even slaving Ableton Live via ReWire kind of worked -> knock on wood....

I think uninstalling first also trashes prefs. I think especially if there are any issues like you mention trashing prefs should still be the first thing to do. I had issues with some 2018 upgrades and trashed prefs and it fixed them.

I wonder how many people with 9173 problems just need to trash prefs...probably not all, but should be worth a shot.

2019.5 is running nicely here (18c hackintoshes)

In my case, thrashing prefs is not the answer unfortunately.

It doesn’t bother me that much having the error pop up once or twice a day. But it still remains a known issue that persists in 2019.5

Just discovered that Avid Link replaced Application Manager. Seems to be an improvement.

I've rarely uninstalled before updating. I do, however, always freshly restart the computer, then trash prefs and workspace/catalog files just before installing. On a Mac w/ Mojave, btw, and it went smoothly this time, too.

No, couldn't get them to work together at all. I'm reinstalling High Sierra. Never had any problems with that. Hope it's ok with PT 2019!....

2019.5 is running quite well on my system. I've just tried several of my existing mixes and have not done a lot of editing or any recording yet. It feels quite snappy as well.

Guess it depends on the definition of "many" and "very stable" (to my way of thinking one or two 9371's a day is not stable) But honestly I just spent about an hour perusing the DUC and (unless I missed some particular thread) It actually seems that much like here, the majority are reporting smooth running and did not notice any significant numbers reporting 9173 errors ? There was one thread just started this morning under the 2019 category specifically about 9073 errors but no replies yet will have to see what develops .
I wonder if it is something specific to your system causing the problem ?

Specific plug-ins seem to cause it. The CPU core distribution seems much improved so there is more power when I don't use some very high cpu plugs.

Guys, I still on Mac Sierra and I read that PT 2019.5 works better on Mojave.

which MacOS are you using?

Thanks

Where did you read that?

Running fine here on Sierra, but it’s been out in the wild two days sooo...

If you’re on Sierra now, upgrading to 2019.5 will be a lot easier/simpler than installing Mojave. Why not try it first and see how you go?

Pro Tools Vanilla Mojave i9 MBP somewhat more stable with the update. I'm still getting 9073, but it seems a bit less than with the previous version. In my case, it's usually triggered when I add Newfangle Elevate to the end of my mix bus. That particular plugin is resource heavy. Meters could be at like 50%, but it will still hiccup occasionally.

I just updated my OS, from High Sierra to to Mojave. The optimization people talk about wasn't there for me on High Sierra, but it is indeed on Mojave. It's feel smoother/snappier and the cpu is better too.

PT Ultimate 2019.5 on OS 10.14.4 combo is working flawlessly for me. Excellent update! Performance improvements and stability are key to this update. Continuous playback is also a welcome addition.

Well done Avid!

Just threw a fairly intense mix with almost 70 serious plugins in real time at 5.2019 and it didn't break a sweat- like 49% usage- Late 2012 mac mini

This particular session was crippling Pro Tools before the update.

I did all the things I knew to do to get Pro Tools to pause or crash, and it would not!

In general this version feels snappier and I echo the continuous playback is a welcomed addition.

WELL DONE AVID- I have to say that I am really impressed- I feel like they gave me my computer back

Are you using virtual instruments?

Or just audio and audio plug ins?

No VI.
A film mix session. About 150 tracks, with the usual suspects of plugins: fab filter, dmg audio, cedar dns and stock avid plugins.

Over the course of 9 hours of having that session open it happened once, after about 3 hours.

I was writing volume automation. Nothing fancy

After advice from Avid support, I am now running 2019.5 perfectly on High Sierra. Not a glitch. Mojave - forget it. Crashes PT every time. It can wait, why do I need it?!

still cant use AAX instruments at anything below 128 buffer on my RME RayDAT. It's been like this FOREVER now. Any other DAW, any standalone software works without a hitch at 32 samples. I mean the RME is so good that 128 buffer's latency is still imperceivable to me, but it's depressing to have to still deal with it. Or if i've been tracking audio only at 32, and then select an instrument, Pro Tools locks up for a minute while it loads the AAX instrument, reminding me to put the buffer to 128. Anything below 128 is still giving me CPU errors from spiking. Clean install on High Sierra, no speedstepping, all the usual stuff. Sigh.

2019 is running great here on Win10 for me.

If they'd just open up the I/O for non avid hardware, I'd be 100% satisfied for what I'm using protools for.
