As per their previous guide to High Sierra compatibility, here is the link to their page with details on Mojave which was released today. The short version, at time of starting this thread, is of course not to upgrade yet, even for Logic users.

Thanks for that. I don't expect to be moving for at least a year to Mojave, but it's good to track these things and it's a reminder I must move my wife's machine forward off El Cap.

Universal audio have adviced against updating as
well.

Prudence seems to be the call here. As usual..

Good point UAD make about buying new machines. My new machine is less than 2 months old. Bit of luck my old machine failing when it did and not, for example, tomorrow.

This is partly why I thought we should have this thread. Always new users and/or victims of circumstance coming along, etc.

For myself as a hobbyist and with High Sierra being my entry point to Mac, I'm just very interested to see how all this pans out over coming weeks. For others who could have livelyhoods affected I suppose the more information available the better.

Hoping that my old trusty MacBook Air will hold up until they actually present something that I want...
A Mac mini "pro"
Patience is a virtue... :angel:

As a general rule of thumb, unless you want to be an unpaid beat-tester don't "upgrade" to a new version of OSX until it is at least on the .4 version.

As I've said before I can't see them doing one of those for the same reason they dumped the quad core mini. But I'd be very happy to be wrong on that call :)

I think you might be right CC... I've stopped hoping for anything that would totally satisfy me. Fruit wise that is. :)

I expect a lot of people are hoping they come out with something "pro" level at significantly less than the cost of the iMac Pro. If I were to guess I would think it will be something only a fraction less. Anything else would surely threaten iMac Pro sales a lot?

What we could really do with is a Mac "semi-pro"! ;)

I think I mean semi pro you're right redlester.

Mini with;

4 core is ok, 6 core is better
16gb is a bit short in 2018, 32gb is fine...
room for two ssd's would be nice.
And not loosing too many of the current connections. Card reader and hdmi.

I think I would have bought a current mini if only it was 4 core TBH...

Whatever comes I would expect it will need all sorts of adaptors. They seem really infatuated with USB-C.

I notice on VI-Control (the virtual instrument/sample libraries forum) some on there have actually gone ahead with Mojave already. Very brave!

I have already anticipated that there might only be USB-C connectors and there are a few very nice hubs but they add €200-300 to the cost... strange that it's not apple that make and sell those.

:roll:

Make the move to Sierra, it's alright. Not entirely convinced by HS, mostly because APFS takes some getting used to.

Now I've got a bunch of USB-C/TB 3 sockets I find I like them a lot. Now that internal cards for computers are going the same way as the RS232 port (and good riddance to that) TB 3 is a powerful way of expanding the machine. It also represents future proofing for all my TB 2 stuff, which is a relief.
