  • The Pro Tools application is not automatically added to the Dock on Mac OS X, but can be manually added by dragging the application icon to the Dock.


  • Pro Tools 11.x and Mac OS X 10.8.3 are supported for co-install with Pro Tools 10.3.6  (details)
    • Mac OS X:  We recommend using Mac OS X 10.8.3 for co-install with Pro Tools 10.3.6 since Mac OS X 10.8.4 is not officially qualified. If you have already upgraded to Mac OS X 10.8.4 you may not need to downgrade as there are no known issues at this time.
    • HD Systems:  When co-installing Pro Tools 11.x and Pro Tools 10.3.6, the Pro Tools 11 HD Driver must be installed for proper support.

Late Breaking Technical Issues

  • When updating an existing Pro Tools 11.0 installation to 11.0.1, choose the "Replace" option during the drag/drop install process. Choosing "Keep Both" will result in a co-installation that will break Avid Video Engine functionality.


  • Review the Read Me file before installing or updating Pro Tools 11.0.1 for known issues that could impact your workflow.
  • Registered owners of Pro Tools 11 can find Installers, HD Drivers, etc. in the Your Products section of theirAvid Account.
