Next version of MacOS probably doesn't support Sound Manager

Postby runmas » 06 Jun 2019, 22:00

Next version of MacOS, Catalina, is to be released this fall. One of the differences from earlier versions is that 32-bit applications is no longer supported, which Nord Sound Manager on MacOS happens to be. I really hope Nord will make a 64-bit version of the Sound Manager. Do you think they will?

+1

I also wonder whether the enhancements touted in Apple’s new, dedicated iPadOS would making a tablet version of Sound Manager more feasible.

I am sure they have to support 64 bit. Mac is very popular among musicians because of built in MIDI support and the excellent Logic Pro X. I guess a survey here on the forum will show much higher use of Mac than the appr 15% market-share they have worldwide on the desktop market...

+1 - it would be a serious failure to not support Mac anymore because of non-availability of 64bit-versions of Nords software tools

Confirmed: I'm running the public beta of Mac OS Catalina. The latest versions of Sample Editor and Sound Manager for Mac don't work at all.

Nord has had plenty of time to work on 64-bit versions of its Mac software. Catalina is the first OS update with zero support for 32-bit apps. Prior to this one, several previous OS versions have warned about 32-bit app compatibility going away. Beta versions of the OS are made available to app developers for just this reason—to let the developers update their apps to make sure their customers will still be able to use them.

Let’s wait and see what happens when Catalina is officially released, Nord should have a 64bit version of their software available by then I think.

Why should they bother rushing to release new software before Catalina is released?

Who - apart from the developers - gives a f**** whether the management software runs on a beta OS?
