Here, the combo at Apple (recommended), beware, it's HEAVY (729 MB).

Remember that for music making it's safer to wait a little to see if nothing ugly shows…

So far, for normal use (non-musical) it's ok, but expect one or two reboot. In case of things seem blocked, wait a unreasonable amount of time (an hour) and you should have an up to date back up… just in case. cool.gif

Pro Tools 8 seems fine

WARNING :

Mac Pro 2 x 2.8 Quad Core Intel Xeon
Euphonix MC MIX
Apogee Ensemble
Logic Pro 8.0.2

After the new Euphonix firmware (that works fine in 10.5.6), it is invisible in 10.5.7. Only solution for now, going back to 10.5.6 until a new firmware for the MC MIX is out.

Apple G5 dual 1.8GHz / OS X 10.5.7
Apogee Ensemble
Logic Pro 8.0.2

Works fine!

There's a download at Euphonix and it works.

Else:

ProTools HD and LE 8.0.0cs2 in audio seem fine

Other reports on Macbook C2D 2.2 GHz and Mac Pro that's it's ok.

Good to see updates with so few issues biggrin.gif

One Member reported no issue with an Apogee Ensemble (others on the Net reported problems)

Other reported issues are a problem with some Apple 24" monitors, that can be overridden with third party software to force the resolution, and one case of partial Voice Over set to on.

Just in case one has something wrong, first, repair disk/permissions, re-apply Combo, repair permissions again, and check the eventual driver…

Mind that Wacom just updated their tablet drivers, if you use them (as I do)

Hello,

My Apogee Ensemble works just fine after I downloaded the new May '09 update for 10.5.7.
Also, DP6 and all my soft synths and third party plugs are working perfectly.

Hi DANO10,

As far as I can see on the Apogee site the latest sotfware for the Ensemble is May '08.
See http://support.apogeedigital.com/index.php...tware-installer

So where did you find the May '09 update?


Regards
MacIntop

One member has Omnisphere and Stylus who can't find all their whereabouts, it's under investigation.

Stylus asks for the Sage folder, once selected, nothing…

Hello Macintop,

You got me. I misread May '08 for May '09. In any case, when I installed the May '08 update, the few problems I was having went away. I had installed the same update last May. I think installing it again after a year refreshed Ensemble and as of today everything is go.

Hi DANO10,

Ok, no problem I just wanted to be sure I didn't missed something.

A general tip when updating operating systems: sometimes permissions are corrected (so to speak) on certain objects, causing applications that use them to behave weird.

I think it's a good idea to bring that up with support people - mention the os update, what objects does the application access and does it need any particular permissions on those.

End user safeguard tip: always repair disk before, and permissions before and after update. wink.gif
(best to use Apple disk utility or OnyX, and for the geekier: Applejack, always check Applejack or OnyX is up to date, don't be too confident on those right after an update, s…t happens!)

One member has issues with the validation of Amplitube, on both MBP C2D 2.4GHz and iMac 24" C2D 2,8GHz. The ID of the computer is changing for some unknown reason so it screws the authorization for it. After a restart of the computer, the original ID is back and it works…

Somehow it does not happen on the PWM G5 dualCPU 2GHz… So maybe it's linked to intel code only…

On a Mac Pro Dual Xeon : no issues with Omnisphere 1.4 and Stylus 1.7. Same with his East West Play editions.

same issue with T-Racks (on a Xeon Mac Pro) so if you're using any IK Multimedia software keep to 10.5.6 for now, or reboot, it'll work in the net session till you shut down the computer.
lepetitmartien
The IK multimedia suspens! ^^

On a macbook 2.4, no issues either with T-Racks (1 and 3) nor with SampleTank…

Any word about the latest OS update with Ableton Live? I seem to get in one kind of trouble or another as soon as I update with Live....mostly it's just Ableton not recognizing some plugs anymore....sometimes the plugs come back.....sometiimes they don't.

No news for Live, I'll ask.

Another member is fine with Amplitube, so the guy with issues must have something else fishy…

One solution for live if you have the time and the hard drive, is to clone your system, update and see… This way you can go back to safety if needed. But it can eat hours very easily…

Hi,
How do you clone a complete DAW ?
I have a Glyph external HD that I save my Cubase 4.5.2 music projects onto.
I have just done the 10.5.7 update and I think I should do a back up.
Thanks

Actually, there is an issue that has come about in Live 7.0.16 that has not been corrected, and it came at an intermittent time with regards to MY system, so the culprit could be a combination of several things, not just the OSX update == although, apple updates seems to cause much more havoc with my pro tools setup than ANYTHING that ever has taken place with Live over the past 7 years.
It has to do with rendering at 32b. Occasionally, the rendering will freeze, and the "timeline / rendering % completion bar" will ONLY move when you start to mouse anywhere on the screen. No mousing, no progress . . . move your mouse in little circles, and the rendering % completion bar returns to normal.

This only happens at 32b not 24b or 16b.

It's an odd quirk, but one that I discovered to be annoying if you have a client in chair and you are endlessly waiting to hear how the "soup" turned out.

You need :
- some real estate on a hard drive, preferably one hard drive you DON'T use. It must be at least the size of the hard drive to clone (time to think about not using 2 GB disks for the system… wink.gif
- Some cloning software. I use Carbon Copy Cloner (CCC), which is free, can make incremental clones (so it is up to date) and works. Some prefer others (CloneX for example) or use Time Machine for example.

One important things about clones : always test the clone by booting on it and check things purr as they should. If they don't, format and do it again.

If time is an issue (cloning takes an LONG time), Time Machine will do a similar job in some ways and faster. I won't enter here in the advantages/disadvantages of cloning, archive or TM as it far from the focus of the thread.

Anyway you choose, it's important to keep thinking it's a clone for safety and it should not be used for other purposes save updating the clone/recover the system/apps/user accounts and to use the drive (a glyph to add to) you use for day by day work.

Either you have something fishy or it's a bug, but it may be not system related… Maybe a thread of his own would be great in the Live sub-forum ? wink.gif
