So I made the jump to Yosemite. Why not?  Mavericks did not introduce any issues to pro tools for me.

Well, I will be downgrading back to Mavericks soon.

Pro Tools 10 does not act well.   It loaded just fine, usually you notice an issue right away.  I thought I was in the clear.

Nope.  

There is a major graphics bug that blacks out almost every sub menu when looking through the plug ins and sends.  Only about half is legible.  

The other issue I had was that my midi controller would stay on only track 1.  When I change tracks, the midi controller stays right at the original track.  Can't get it to change.

Lastly, while playing with different sounds in a VI, I created a click track.  No longer did the VI produce the sound correctly.  Imagine an amp clipping and going into protect mode, I only hear a slight instance of the sound, then nothing.  UGH.  I had to shut off the plug-in and insert it again.  

So, Ill be hopping back to Mavericks so that I can actually use my system.

Good luck out there.  Please post your horror or success stories here.

Successfully restored my system back to Mavericks. Thank you Time Machine (they do exist and are awesome). 

Ran back through pro tools and attempted to recreate the errors encountered before.  I could not.  Yippie!

Updating PT to the newest version 10.3.9 and backing away from Yosemite.

I don't know if it's something you use, but check that your apps in Applications/Utilities are there. When I last restored Yosemite -> Mavericks using a Time Machine backup, it hosed various parts of the system including my Applications/Utilities (which was the most noticeable issue!). I use Terminal a LOT so that being missing was a real issue!

Doesn't look like anything is missing.

Thanks.

OK, still upgrading (which I now am positive will take me 252343456 months to finish), so grain of salt...

PT 11 HD doesn't seem to have any major issues. There's some routing to the 2 buss weirdness, but most of my sessions use aux returns for the 2 buss, so it hasn't been a major pain.

Native Instruments has been a nightmare. Standalone, Kontakt works fine, but Massive, etc. doesn't want to find external sounds. You also have to dump the plug-in that powers NI controller products. Personally, I'm all good there since I don't own any, but if you do, you're screwed for now.

Arturia has abandoned a few products, and while you can still download them, those come in 32 bit RTAS and AU. Basically worthless for a PT11 and Yosemite upgrade.

"Pro Tools 10.x and earlier (including Pro Tools Express) will not be tested/qualified with Yosemite (or Mavericks)."

Avid yet again forcing the consumer to upgrade.  

Me stuck in PT10.

Well, ever since the move to AAX we all knew, at some point, we'd be forced to upgrade. With 10 being 32 bit and still allowing for RTAS and 32 bit AAX, it was pretty clear that 11 was going to be the version that Avid would push us to.

If Avid's subscription service rolls out smoothly (ignoring history, I'm tentatively optimistic about this) you should be able to upgrade at a better price point.
