Before you update your OS, always be sure to look before you leap.
High Sierra will break older versions of Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro.
The new macOS update, code named “High Sierra” is coming this autumn, and users of older versions of Logic Pro, or Final Cut will not be allowed into the party.
This was confirmed by Apple themselves on their support website and also affects other Apple made applications such as Motion, Compressor, and MainStage.
At least we are forewarned about these compulsory, and costly updates, because they are made by Apple themselves.
It is not yet clear which third party software will be left behind by this update.
Older versions of popular applications such as Ableton Live, Pro Tools, or Adobe Suite programmes such as Photoshop, Illustrator or Premier Pro will have to wait until the update appears, probably around October, to see if they have survived.
(I am still using Ableton Live 8 Suite, would you believe?).
The message is clear, whether you are a Hackintosh user, or a regular Mac user: always wait as long as you can before updating your OS.
