I've heard that they're working on it now. Apparently Avid do alot of testing before they release an update (unlike some others!). Yes, I would hope that it would be an update to 5.5 that was free.

I would be surprised if it gets approved with v5.5, probably not to v6.

Just my opinion, avid never rushes aproval of o.s.'s because when using avid to make money, you
Want it stable.

Why install Lion? Or is this a NEW machine with Lion installed?

Lion has a nice new mail feature so I installed it and now my $3,000 application is no longer able to play music.

Over on the Avid site forum Avid employees have said they are working really hard to get it approved and have hinted it will be a 5.5.3 update for Lion, with no charge. But Lion has been out, what, about 2 weeks? Considering the differences between the beta and the release version its unsurprising that they haven't got it yet. I don't see why are so impatient. I remember getting Windows Vista and not being able to get a driver for a midi keyboard I owned for about 6 months. For a midi keyboard! Avid need to approve half a dozen pieces of software and hardware and support for 3rd party hardware.

Well, I have a laptop for all my personal things, and then my main MacPro for work. So if I want the kewl new things, I do that on my laptop, and leave my main machine I use to earn a living, alone.

But I use Avid on my laptop too...so I don't update that either.

Where and when did you pay $3K for MC? If you like keeping your OS to date, it is often recommended to build a separate partition for your Avid install, with an older, approved version of the OS.

I got it from a guy off Craigslist. He said it was a good deal. I assume thats a very good price? He said Avids can cost over 100k easily. He had all kinds of softwares for sale any kind you want. Let me know if you want his digits yo.

Dude you got RIPPED! MC retails for $2495 here and you can get it for almost half that if you look around on ebay... and you 'upgraded' your OS just for mail??? lol.

Sure, whatever gets you through the day. My Avid is for working, billing clients etc and must be stable for that purpose. Mail? my iphone can do that.

Amazes me some of the people in 'the biz'.

btw... how is it Avid's fault if you bought their software for a non-qualified system? YOU should have researched it first. I hope they DO charge you.

Errr... no you didn't as you paid more than the RRP. Meaning you would have paid less to buy it from a reputable dealer, rather than some guy on Craigslist. Avid's only cost silly money if you buy a computer, software and hardware package.

I have a problem with the nesting of BCC AVX Effects with MC 5.5.3. I have been advised to roll back to MC 5.5.2, but that version won't work with Lion. I believe this is a known issue. Are you able to confirm that Avid are working on a "fix" ?
