Caveat: no life guards - swim at you're own risk!

 

That said, this weekend I ran the Helix Editor on Sierra with no issues, and the Helix audio driver didn't present any issues with iTunes or with Logic. I was scare-full carefull to a) make sure my time machine backups were up to date and b) install everything on yet another external TB drive.

 

Anyhoo, I didn't encounter any problems with Helix, nor with My Avid Artist controllers or the RME UFX. MUCH better than back in the El Capitan days

 

Hope this helps! Be careful!

Not on a Mac, but FYI, I've received several emails from VST devs saying that their stuff isn't yet compatible and they're working on it.

I was using Helix Editor on Sierra last night for a few hours and didnt run into any issues. Also as an interface into Logic X without any issues.

I've been using the Sierra Beta for a few weeks now (on a separate, bootable external hard disc) and I have not run into any problems at all with the Helix edit app. Logic Pro X is still fine with Helix for me too.

I've always got a minimum month buffer before I update OSX or IOS, rarely does the new feature set warrant the risk of the actual applications I use no longer working.

 

Having said that, I'm really eager to see if anyone suffers that Helix Freeze when connected to Mac Editor. If that ended up being resolved inadvertently, well that would be amazing.

Soon as they fix the AU plugins with Sierra I'll upgrade. Thanks DI for that tidbit.

Uhm,  seems like my UX1 studio sound card is struggling to be recognized by Mac.. Also all my usb accessories are acting "weird" since the update.. Still Logic runs with no issues.

Helix editor working fine here, as is using Helix with Logic Pro X, Studio One 3. Also, I've had no problems with any of my AU or VST plugs.

 

Backup with Time Machine before installing Sierra if you are scared of the dark.  :o

I did a reinstall of the Helix app and then it works just fine! 

Had problems with Helix freeze before I did the reinstall!

Never... ever...

 

ever...

 

Upgrade to a new OS right away.

 

Never.

 

El Capitan was a disaster for audio hardware/software. I'm still on Yosemite because of it.

 

Unless you're dying for Siri on your desktop or iCloud integration, there's no reason to be a guinea pig here.

Heck, I'm still on MAVERICKS on this computer right now, and I will perhaps be buying my next mac very soon and will actually opt for the 2012 13" MBP you can still get new so I can continue to run Mavericks.

El Capitan had a ruff start yes, but things were fixed and I have no issues with it now using Logic X, Cubase 8.5,  or PT 12.x when I was running it. So I figure Sierra will be the same way within a few weeks/months.
