Hi.
I've just have an issue with soundtrack 1.5 (final cut express 3.5) and the latest Pro kit update:

After updating, Soundtrack won't start no more! (with error: Terminating app due to uncaught exception 'NSArchiverArchiveInconsistency', reason: '* class error for 'MKModuleLayoutManager': class not loaded')

I've tried to restore /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/ProKit.framework from time machine and Soundtrack works again.

But after another "Software update" SnowLeopard replaced again ProKIT with 6.0.1 killing Soundtrack.

It's very annoying, because I don't know if I need the new ProKIT because, I have FinalCut Express 3.5, Logic Express 8, Aperture 3.1 and the latest iLife '11.

Now I'm confused because the new Update is needed for the lastest apps but it doesn't work with the oldest (not so old).

    I'm having the same issue. Just checked and there is no patch available. I can't believe a software update is able to be released without anyone realizing it would break an app completely.

    It's called the upgrade cycle, it also is called planned obsolescence and sometimes known as, we'll take your money, thank you.

    If all your programs work do you really need the latest OS updates? The answer is No. Is iLife 11 complaining that it doesn't have Prokit 6, I would have to check but does Apple list why the Prokit update id needed.

    Pros have learned that not every update offers the best most stable performance, nor is it always required.

    Thanks for the heads up on Prokit 6, hopefully it will save others some grief.

    Add me to the list of people whose Soundtrack 1.5 will not work now that the latest PRO kit update 6.0.1 was loaded yesterday. Stupid me forgot to backup before updating, now I'm stuck.

    Any suggestions on how to 'uninstall' this last PRO kit update (i.e. which files/folders to remove)?

    I tried reloading Soundtrack to no avail. Same error as noted in original post. Thanks for any assistance.

    Same here. Soundtrack quit unexpectedly. Same with all my Macs, Mac Pro, MacBook Pro, & Mac mini.

    Don't know if this will help... everyone has repaired permissions after the update... correct?

    Don't use Time Machine, any other recommendations?

    I don't use Time Machine either (perhaps it's time to buy it!)

    Anyway, I've got a call with Apple Support scheduled from 8:00-8:15pm EST tonight, I'll reply with hopefully a fix, or at least Apple's feedback that they're working on the issue.

    no luck with Apple Support...they suggested I upgrade to Final Cut Studio for $999. Nice try. There is no way to 'uninstall' the prokit 6.0 update. Tech guy said I'll to do a full re-install of my system and just not update to the prokit 6.0, or do the expensive upgrade which has soundtrack pro in it. I'll start looking into the less expensive cleansing and reinstall of my system. bummer.

    Thank you very much! Restoring the ProKit from last March (ProKit 5.1) did the trick. My ProApps continue to work (Final Cut Express and Aperture and now Soundtrack). If and when Apple releases Final Cut Express 5, then I’ll likely upgrade from FCE HD 3.5.1 but it’s a great product.

    Here’s the Software Update note for ProKit 6.0.1:
    This update is recommended for all users of Final Cut Studio, Final Cut Pro, Motion, Soundtrack Pro, DVD Studio Pro, Aperture, Final Cut Express, Soundtrack, Logic Studio, Logic Pro, MainStage, WaveBurner and Logic Express.

    Obviously Apple needs to quickly update ProKit or alter the recommendation re Soundtrack.


    Ooops! i spoke too soon, now iPhoto ’11 won’t start. I had just installed iLife ’11 before replacing ProKit 6.0.1. I’ll try a reinstall of iLife ’11 using the old ProKit 5.1.
