So, some progress, but damned if this does not suck:
On my Mac Pro tower, Intel chipset.
Mac OSX 10.6.8
Pro Tools HD 10.3.10
It likes these versions of my four plug ins:
I do not have an older version of ETCH, I am waiting to hear back from the company. Since they do not offer the previous version on the download page, BUT only for the other three effects. Simply crazy.
BTW I still have had no luck with the laptop authorization situation. I hope they resolve it. I use the laptop in conjunction with my tower, in the same productions, because I run the laptop as an effects device at the same time as the main Pro Tools Hd rig.
The only thing that changed was the hard drive on the laptop died. And with it, apparently, the authorizations for that computer. Which proves that this sort of licensing scheme is outdated and sucks. Why can't they use iLok2 or ANY OTHER KIND of authorization scheme, like the Waves one?
