Migrating MacPorts after a major operating system upgrade or from one computer to another
A MacPorts installation is designed to work with a particular operating system and a particular hardware architecture.
This migration procedure ensures a smooth transition after major system changes, such as:
major operating system upgrades (e.g., from macOS 10.15 Catalina to macOS 11 Big Sur).
architecture migrations (e.g., from Intel to Apple Silicon).
migrations from one computer to another
If you don’t want to migrate, you can always uninstall MacPorts entirely before manually reinstalling ports.
Note: If you move from one Mac to another Mac using Migration Assistant, you have to do it first.
We’ve highlighted a number of top-notch commercial third-party offerings (and one must-have freebie) here, but the EQs built into most DAWs these days are at least pretty good, if not quite excellent, albeit largely limited to parametrics and multimode filters. As long as you don’t expect much in the way of character, Pultec-style trickery or mastering-grade viability, your stock DAW EQ will more than suffice for bread-and-butter frequency-shaping, so don’t feel like its an inferior option – as ever, if it sounds good, is it good. Indeed, onboard EQ plugins can actually bring their own benefits in the shape of low CPU usage and handy response curve thumbnails embedded in mixer channels.
I have the IK and iZotope tools. Add those to the Logic built-ins (they do have ‘vintage’ character EQs with drive now) and I just don’t need anymore. I do so love the FabFilter interface though…
Now, iZotope has taken Exponential Audio’s killer algorithmic reverbs and brought them into the music space with Neoverb, a reverberation plug-in as handy as it is smart, which makes use of the AI-powered tools iZotope is famous for.
Neoverb sports a lot of intelligent and helpful features that make it intuitive and easy to use. It also happens to sound pretty damn great. So, we thought a tutorial was in order: read on for three tips to get yourself up and running with Neoverb in under ten minutes.
