System Software

Mac OS 10.2.6 or 10.2.8 (Jaguar) Required for Pro Tools LE 6.1.2

Total System RAM

  • 384 MB minimum, 512 or higher recommended
  • More RAM increases overall system and Pro Tools performance
  • 512 MB RAM or higher suggested for sessions with high edit density, extensive use of plug-ins, or simultaneous use with MIDI sequencers
  • DigiTranslator 2.0 will also require additional RAM
  • OS X does not require minimum or preferred RAM settings for Pro Tools as RAM is dynamically allocated

Note: In Pro Tools 6.0.x, the maximum allowable RAM was 1.5 GB. MDD G4 models with 2.0 GB would cause a "NeoAccess Error" and Pro Tools would not boot unless some RAM was removed. This issue is solved in Pro Tools 6.1 and higher. Answerbase Details
