Default High Sierra to Mojave

Hi all-

I'm running 10.13.6 on a Mid 2012 Mac Pro right now. I'm considering updating to Mojave as I've got a couple projects coming up pretty quick that I'll be involved in for the next 8-12 months. Was thinking about updating before then because I definitely won't be able to do so during that time.

How is Reaper running on Mojave for you folks? Any noticeable differences between High Sierra and Mojave? Should I just stay on High Sierra?

Thanks a bunch for your help!

I haven't had any problems at all. I have two Macs; I upgraded the Mini to Mojave when Mojave was released, as my Mini isn't a critical machine and I use it to test things as well as do personal projects. My "production machine" is a Mac Pro (2013 trashcan model) and I waited a couple of months to upgrade that but it's fine too. I have Reaper and much else running on both machines and haven't encountered any issues. You do need to be aware that Mojave restricts apps' access to microphones etc. but it'll ask you to give apps permission and if you just allow access you'll be fine.

Thanks for the info, bjohn!

It turns out I can't update after all. My GPUs are definitely not compatible with Mojave (was completely unaware of this requirement). Ah well! It seems like High Sierra will be the last ever mac OS I use. For my next "master" computer I'll very likely be moving to PC land.

Thanks again!

Ah, too bad!

I use Mac, Windows, and Linux, and now that Reaper's available for Linux I may end up settling there eventually although it's less practical for some of the things I do. I have been burned too many times by Microsoft, although I'd consider going with Windows on a machine that's totally cut off from the internet and never updated.

I'm still having trouble. New iMac Pro 2017 and Mojave + Reaper doesn't seem compatible. The transport controls are sluggish, even in a new session with 0 tracks.

I've had to switch to Ableton because it's so terribly slow and frustrating.
