    Thanks, but they were both re-profiled just the other day.
    Would the profile of the monitor effect the AdobeRGB proofing from capture one but nothing else?

    I would suspect either the AdobeRGB profile in use or the monitor profile. What I suggest is that you swap profiles between computers and see what happens (does the problem travels with the profile). Mark the profile file names with some extra characters to be able to trace it and distinct from the original.

    You can find the monitor profile through ColorSync app. It is most of the time either in the system or personal Library / ColorSync / Profiles folder. The AdobeRGB profile might be more difficult to trace since many applications store one on your system in different folders. This allows you to try out different AdobeRGB profiles on the same computer without swapping with the other system.

    Change one profile at a time and run a test in CO3.

    makes sense but from various apps installing profiles, each computer has three copies of AdobeRGB to select from. The bad computer shows the banding on all three.
    Has anyone else seen this?

    Focus on the monitor profile then when swapping between computer, as suggested above.

    The profiles have been recently remade. So the issue has persisted though several monitor profiles. Obviously no two monitors have the same profile in a colour managed workflow.

    Swapping profiles as I earlier suggested was intended to get a finger behind a potential cause. It can/could give information about your setup which is not possible to get to creating multiple profiles on the same computer. Well, never mind. 😭
