I'm not sure if you're talking to me or smfelton, but I'm running a very very stable 10.9.5. I'm not ready to adopt PT11 yet, so Yosemite wasn't an option for me.

Heya,

Read through the posts in this thread and thought I'd I'd ask for updates. I have the Apollo Quad and PCIe UAD2 solo card working great in my system. GA-Z77up5-TH Mobo and 32 GB ram. Solid as can be! I use the Apple FW to Thunderbolt adapter to connect my Quad Firewire system to the Thunderbolt...works mint.
I am thinking of grabbing the Thunderbolt Board for my Apollo which will update me to the new UAD Console 2 application.
I wanted to know if anyone has experience with using Apollo via Thunderbolt and a PCIe UAD2 card (older version not able to support the new 32 devices on the PCIe buss VIA Thunderbolt).

Any input would be appreciated.

Hi
I have an GA Z87x-ud5 TH and it is working with my Apollo Twin Solo. I also have some freezes and deleted there some Audio Kext and Set Memory Settings to Profile1. See what happens so. Have to wait.
But, my question is, can you use Apollo and your DAW also you have installed the Multibeast Audio Driver. It´s the Intel 898 which also install HDA.kext.
I have this one installed and it is working but my DAW (Logic X) don´t see the Apollo since I have installed it.
Any else. Otherwise I have to delete it, which I don´t want.

Hi I own an Apollo Twin Solo that I use with my macbook retina and Mac Mini server.
So thunderbolt and Apollo are basically the only things keeping me from jumping into Hackintosh.

I think I'll need to build a Hack around it but I'm really intimidated.

Thunderbolt and Apollo are running very good on a Hackintosh. I had the same doubt few weeks before but everything works fine. I have also a UAD-2-Satellite Quad Thunderbolt device which is running very well. Check my user build if you are interested.

I'm now running OS X 10.11 El Capitan, with Pro Tools 12.2.1. So far everything is running good, and the Apollo is running fine. I also use a pair of the virtual channels for system sounds as well, so I have control of the volume within Console.
Slate Plugins are running fine (the error they have is with Logic Pro AU validation) as are Waves, Softube P&M and obviously UAD.
Cheers

I am running the latest Update 8.4 which is working great!
About buying I can´t tell you anything. Have bought mine on resale.

All the Best Martin
