Native stuff is computer processor based. However, the HDX mixer needs to transfer the mixer signal from the HDX card to the computer processor to do that processing (and then back.) That uses your hardware buffer size in Pro Tools. This is the same as TDM and RTAS plugins.

For UAD stuff, you need to follow their rules: macOS version, right update of the UAD software.

Also, what sample rate are you running and what buffer size for Pro Tools?

No matter what, though, UAD is not good for tracking without an Apollo.
Im on 12.8.1 and Yosemite because we are a bit scared to jump up to another OS because of stability. Everything else is up to date. Maybe I'll just start plopping the Valhalla verbs on for tracking they seem pretty easy on the system.

Thanks for the info. Im going to do some research on upgrading my PT rig to Ultimate, but will have to goto beyond Yosemite. Ill have to look and see what's stable.
