Pro Tools 2019: Mojave Support and Improved Performance

By in Audio Post, Music Creation, Pro Mixing

With the introduction of Pro Tools 2019, we are pleased to announce support for macOS Mojave! You can now use Pro Tools on any qualified Mac running Apple’s latest OS. As a team, we want to extend our thanks to our customers for being patient as we worked hard to bring you the best Mojave compatible version of Pro Tools possible.

Now that Mojave compatibility has arrived, we are excited to report that we are seeing significant performance improvements—as much as an 800% boost—with some machines running Pro Tools 2019.5 and Mojave 10.14.4.

With increased power on hand, you can create and mix with more effects plugins and virtual instruments and fewer CPU limitations. Results may vary depending on your system, but as an example, compare the power of Pro Tools | Ultimate 2019 + HDX on macOS Mojave vs. Pro Tools | Ultimate 2018 + HDX on macOS High Sierra:

* Testing conducted using 2018 iMac Pro machines running macOS Mojave 10.14.4, Pro Tools | Ultimate 2019.5, and Pro Tools | HDX. Performance tests are conducted using specific computer systems running plugins natively at low buffer sizes and reflect the approximate performance. Please refer to Pro Tools System Requirements for full details on compatibility. 


Over the last few months, Avid’s Pro Tools team has been working closely with Apple to optimize Pro Tools 2019.5 for improved performance and reliability on macOS Mojave.

Alongside the other new capabilities in this release, the significant performance improvement with macOS Mojave makes Pro Tools | Ultimate 2019 our most powerful release yet.
