The upgrade of my iMac for the new year: advice requested

I intend to buy a '5 K' 27"iMac very soon in the new year. My current iMac is great, but the new iMacs can support 64 GB of RAM (from trust OWC), and mine is only 32 GB, end of story. I really need the impetus of extra RAM for my work. Right now, I'm still on 10.8.5, as are the many benefits I know. But I simply must have the biggest capacity of RAM. My concern is the operating system. Can someone please give me some advice on how I should migrate my relatively valuable software without problem?

In the past, I managed to carry around with only a few bumps, but I realize the Mavericks realize / El Capitan are slightly different beasts OS to the Lion. So, in general, I'm in Logic Pro (of course!), with Kontakt as my pillar. In addition, plenty of third-party plugins and related software that could be a minefield. What would be my best strategy for getting up and running relatively smoothly? I ask this, because my time is at a premium, it is never really a period I would call convenient to do this, as I'm sure that many pros will understand.

I want to just be prepared for eventualities, that perhaps the community already have experience. Sorry, I really do not have to trawl all the threads though. He is currently a deadline after another, but I don't know that I can migrate successfully if I have good info on the new OS.

Really appreciate any help on this! Thank you...

Might help to know what equipment will be attached to the new beast. There has been some problems with El Crapitan from the beginning, but I think that most of them have been flattened, even if Apple OS latest have more load. Apple is trying to get os x and iOS under development platform even if there were a few bumps. Just make sure that your plugin is model compatible as well as all third-party drivers.  Bloom time is is more directly supported.

These can help.

  • clock radio stopped working on the new year

    I have a little old ipod touch (2nd generation, I think it's that old) that is running OS 4.2.1 and cannot be upgraded to higher.  It has been great as a clock radio and music machine, but the morning of the new year has not extinguished the alarm.  Today is the third day now that it did not explode, so I started to make some tests and the alarm clock does not work (although, curiously, the timer is). I deleted all my old alarms, clock settings, checked the settings of date and time, restart, and reset the ipod, etc. - each troubleshooting method I found on discussion forums. Is there something I can do? Saw that this happened to people a few years back and Apple brought a correction at this time, but it's such an old BONE, I don't know that they do not work on it.

    If not, can anyone recommend a clock application that can be in the background while I have a sound application running in the foreground? I have a sound that I program love and do not want to give up, but it doesn't have an alarm that is integrated in this version.

    I have the same iPod, also use it as a music player and alarm...

    Had the same problem and just thought that maybe changing the date (say in 2015 or earlier) should fix.
    Did not try again, since at work now...


  • end of the year - cannot see the end of the year to close this window - is there a script to correct if I'm running an end of year after batches were posted for the new year?

    Hello to someone there is shiny armor!

    My name is Lynne and I have a few questions that I am struggling to solve

    I am running Dynamics GP 10.00.1368 that seems to be sp4

    When I try to open the sales year end closing screen (Tools > Routines > sales > year end close) nothing happens, even through I the end window of the year closing checked ADMIN_SALES_015 slot (period of the end of Sales Routines) for POWERUSER which is how I'm connected (his).

    I assumed (wrongly) that I would be able to address this issue at a later date after the end of June (end of the year our) so I allowed everyone back on the system and displays were held as usual. However, in reading several messages from various sources I have unfortunately starting to recognize I have a made a mistake here & missed the two boats at the end of year!

    I would really appreciate it if someone could: -.

    (a) advise on how I can get to see the end of year sales closing screen &

    (b) run a successful year for end of December 2011 end, then a end of year to end June 2012

    or to offer advice on the best way to address this issue. for example is there there a script that fills all the fields of LYR & CDA and LTD with correct figures once I "tell him" what the 'Calendar' and 'Financial' end of year dates were?

    I understand that buying and year-end sales routines are optional, but nevertheless I am pretty cross with myself for letting these routines lapse.

    If there is no cure here, it will take until the end of December and just close the calendar year then as normal and live with the fact that "Last year" will be two years ' worth of data?

    Should I seek to apply a new service pack / hotfix - I can't even my mind upward that, if all I should download and apply?

    Nothing is ever simple, unless maybe it's typing here!

    I know I asked a lot of questions and I thank you for taking the time to read this.

    Your impotent!

  • Passing parameters to the URL - availability in the new process of request


    I am able to pass parameters in the URL of the APEX that defined the points of the application as below

    : http://application-tier server: port/pls/apexdev/f? p = 1001:1:APP_CLIENT_NUMBER, APPLICATION_NUMBER:0001285, 0000051:

    I would like to get and set other items based on elements of application passed as parameters. I would like to only enter once application.

    I found the best place for this action in a process of application with Point on new Instance of Process.

    The problem seems to be that the value of point of application has not been set at this point, and therefore the values are null.

    If I change the application process process Point to something that runs to each page as On Load: after the header, then the values are available. It is not suitable as only wish to run once at startup of the application.

    I can't find discussion of this documentation.

    1. I would be able to access URL parameters in the application process with Point on a new Instance of the process?

    2. are there any other equivalent task for access to URL parameters at the start of the application?

    Thank you


    APEX runs only on the new process Instance when a new session has been set up. As you discovered, URL items are not yet saved in session at this point State. You can use a level app process before header instead, with a condition that makes that make it run when certain elements that you want to initialize are null.

  • iMac for a new user tutorials

    I bought a new iMac 21 with the retina a few months ago, but have had trouble and wasted hours and hours trying to figure out how to do many things that were so simple on the PC I had for years!

    I've now stored in its original box and put it in stock at home because I can not just use it.

    Are there sites with tutorials that will teach me how to use the software as pages, numbers, iTunes and Photos?

    If you click on the desktop (a black space on the Mac screen), you will see next to that the Apple icon in the upper left of your screen, the word "Finder". You are at the basic level of the Mac where it all begins. If then click on 'help' you will see the option to select "Get to know your Mac" as in the screenshot below part.

  • Pavilion 500-329: to upgrade my power supply for my new GPU

    Hi, I recently got and 660 GTX ti as a gift from a Guild mate. Unfortunately, the stock PSU is a potato (very) disappointing 300W. Who also likes to scream when I'm still so things like move my mouse. Wonderful innit!

    in any case, I've been shopping around for a PSU that could fuel at least my graphics card for the recommended specifications, 450w, unlike what is 240 R7 in the system right now, which is recommended to have 400w... And I managed to find one that meets at my expecations in size and power output.

    I just want to see if someone has comments on the sizes to enter in the case of Pavvy 500-329.

    Since your Canadian, I took the liberty of a few analyses available of the PSU.

    Your current system has a R7-240 which is inspired by 30W.  The GTX660ti attracts 150W.  The net difference is 120W.  The original power supply is 300W but it is a maximum.  You'd never see your car top SPEED!

    I would like to see you get a Corsair CX CDN 96,19 600W as your choice. Here are the specifications.   It's 80 + efficient power consumption curve and focus not on your system. It is also an RIGHT in your system.  If cost is a concern, then I suggest you step down for the 500W version.  It's 20 less CDN.  Its also an exact adjustment.

  • Best version of Photoshop for use with the new Mac Book with El Capitan upgrade

    As I spend my computers to El Capitan, I discovered a lot of confusion on Photoshop works on the version.

    Here is what I have



    • iMac from 2009, updated for Snow Leopard to El Capitan.
    • Photoshop CS5, which, after having installed the new Java works very well.
    • It was already installed, not uninstalled and reinstalled.  I just quit all programs there when I did the upgrade.


    • Mac Book Pro of Mavericks 2012, until ordered to El Capitan
    • It seems impossible to download my license remaining CS5 on the Mac Book

    I was on the cat 4 times, forums with no response for the moment and even talk to someone.  I get this CS5 (CS6 apparently too) are no longer updated or supported for Yosemite or El Cap.

    CS5 does not work on El Cap, but it does not work on my old computer.  Hmmm...

    I hear CS6 may not work either, but information is really confusing, some can, some can't.  Is this true?

    So is the best way to go is to use the CC (CC)?  Which I suppose is where you get your monthly subscription of CS6 of?  I am ready to do it if it will work on both computers and will work with Nik and other line Andromeda plugins

    Nik software will work with CC?

    Why CS5 does not work on my 2009 iMAC but not Mac Book of 2012?

    Any thoughts?

  • LR 4.4.1 crashing on iMac osx 10.8.5 when you use the exposure and shadows. Does not restart with about reset surge protector. Worked perfectly for 1.5 years of upgrades to 4.4


    Thanks for any help you may have. 4.4 LR worked perfectly on iMac 27' OSX 10.8.5 for 1.5 years until October this year when close downs began before making the adjustment on mainly the exposure sliders and shadow. Unit will not re-start less wait reboot power surge will become after 10-15 minutes. Apple replaced the card main and erased the disc. Backup LR 4 recharged and upgrade 4.4.1. New protection against overvoltages or directly in decision-making makes no difference and stop occurs immediately after moving the cursor. An old man can make suggestions or auto checks? This is the teacher/student version.

    Thank you dj. I'm going back to Apple and let him until he succeeds (the sixth time, as its under warranty) any other suggestions anyone?
