Student Resource: MDIA Mac Lab Troubleshooting Guides

For MDIA students working in the Pro Tools Mac labs and vocal booths, it can occasionally be tricky to ensure that your system is properly configured. Thankfully, with the release of Pro Tools 11 we can all expect much smoother sailing in the coming year. Yes, we’re just as excited as you are! However, the labs will be running both Pro Tools 10 and 11 for some time now and we know that the constant flow of students in and out of the Mac labs can make consistent configurations tricky. So, your audio professors are here to help!

Please be sure to consult the guides above and ask your peers for help before sending your professors an email for help. Of course, if you’re stuck we’re always available as a resource.
