Pro tools 10 best version and best osx version

Hello i would really appreciate any help. Im dedicating a old imac just for a protools rig. It has 16gb of ram and is very capable. for opening and transferring old projects and working in pt when it calls for it. (Ive moved on to other daws.)

I would like to know whats the best and most stable combo of pt 10 and osx. Not whats the latest or if it will run on unsupported osx. This is more or less gonna be a stand alone multitrack

I ran PT10 on Mountain Lion for several years with zero issues.
Just upgraded to PT12 and High Sierra a few months ago to be able to keep up with other software upgrades that ceased compatibility with Mountain Lion.

Hey thank you so much. Were you using 10.3.8 again I really appreciate it. Yeah I updated my rig as well and the ability to start a project on my phone or ipad and have it end in logic has just been life changing. Im not pay $300.00 a year for protoils i may be a luddite but i paid $200.00 for logic x years ago and the new pro tools didn’t impress me enough to go on with it. But im not a pro ������

PT 10.3.8 on osx 10.8.5 is very stable, been running for the last 4 years.

The last one is 10.3.10 & is very stable with Mavericks (10.9.5), even though not technically supported by Avid. Runs very smoothly & still using it.

I've run PT 10.3.8 on OSX ML 10.8.5 for years without issue. I recently installed PT 10.3.10 which seems really stable too. Just avoid PT 10.3.9 like the plague lol

That said, like mbvoxx, I'm in the middle of upgrading everything for similar reasons. ML and PT10 are really on the edge of support for even the most generous software companies.
