G2 editor and Mac OS X 64 bit os

Postby Mcsonord » 01 Aug 2019, 14:03

Hi do you Nord boffins,
Have a solution to running the g2 modular editor software on a 64 bit only Mac OS X.
The next OS 10.15 (Catalina) will not run at all with 32 bit apps.
I am ok at the moment as it runs ok as far as I am aware in Sierra. Also both my machines can run Snow leopard which it definitely works in, but in the interests of future proofing...
Also does anybody have the installer app for the windows version and if so which versions of Windows is it ok with?
Cheers dudes
Mcsonord

A Win10 (or earlier) Virtual machine running on mac OS should be a workable solution for Mac users to use the G2 Editor on Catalina. The app is still downloadable from Nordkeyboards https://www.nordkeyboards.com/downloads ... modular-g2

to be honest, I hope that Nord will build a 64bit versione of the sw. It's a really little piece of sw and the G2 is useless without it.

The G2 is discontinued since many years (10), tell me of other brand/models discontinued so long which are having its editor updated today, I see none; hoping its editor will be updated now is ... (choose yourself the adjective), better to accept this and use the last editor with the "tricks" suggested on a Mac or keep/buy an old PC with a compatible version of Windows, just for that purpose (maybe a cheap Win10 tablet would work as well).

PS: hi and welcome to NUF...

I'm talking about to recompile some lines of code on a Mac, not to rewrite the entire firmware. With a very little bit effort, Nord could show to be a real client oriented company, and not only to Modular owners.
IMHO

ps thanks

There is a lot more to bringing 10-year old software up to date than just 're-compiling some lines of code'. Compilers change, operating systems change internally, some needed functionality can become deprecated. There is a job of work to be done to assess feasibility of updating internal firmware plus the user interface before work to 'compile some lines of code' can even begin. Even if done, a company like Nord would probably not publish it without considering support implications for the user base. To suggest that Nord don't do it just because they are not a caring company is unfair and demonstrates a lack of knowledge of the software development process. The G2 modular is a fine piece of equipment and with a little creativity can continue to be so for many years to come.

No other music vendor does this, why should Nord. They are a business like all the others.

I worked in the IT since 1985, I think that I'm able to say that modify a little app (as the G2 editor) to run on a 64bit environment is a little (little) effort.
In my opinion, Nord makes great hw and poor sw, they should pay more attention to sw. The note: "To launch on macOS Catalina: Control + Click on App..." because the developer of Nord Sound Manager v7.52 cannot be verified, is ridicoulus for a company like Nord.
Anyway, I will try to compile (Delphi, not C :| ) and use the following open source editor, found on electro-music.com forum, and, in the meantime, I will install Mojavi on new volume to use the G2 editor by Clavia.
