1024x768_AvidDesktop_Burst.jpg

Is it the Last and Latest Version of Pro Tools 10? It's almost been a year since Pro Tools 10 was updated to 10.3.10 which is not compatible with OS X 10.9 or higher. To be clear, Pro Tools 10.3.10 is not compatible with Mavericks (OS X 10.9) or Yosemite (OS X 10.10). This of course means it is not compatible with OS X 10.11 El Capitan.

This doesn't mean you cannot find a work around that somewhat functions on Mavericks, Yosemite or El Capitan. There have been a few users reporting a successful installation, but have also shown multiple workflow issues. The two main issues that have been reported are graphic layout issues with inserts and audio import bugs.
