This is the right place if your topic concerns different Nord Keyboards, you are not sure which one is the right one for you, etc.

Re: Next version of MacOS probably doesn't support Sound Man

It's like Christmas in September! Clavia Support wrote me again today and let me download 64-bit versions of Sound Manager and the Nord Electro OS updater. If I weren't traveling at the moment, I'd have my Nord with me, but I can confirm that what Clavia is currently beta-testing works with what Apple is currently beta-testing, as in the apps actually open up.

Now that there's a new answer to the question that's central to this post topic, i thought it deserved an update. I'll test the apps out more thoroughly when I can, but it looks like Clavia is at least 90% there in terms of being ready for Catalina. Cheers, all.

Good. Now all we need are iOS versions of their software and we'll really have moved into the 21st century.
This will sound like an annoying rant, and I do recognize the quality of Nord products, but with the prices they're charging, they owe it to their (demanding) customers to support as many platforms as possible.
The fact that they're a small company compared to the likes of Roland or Yamaha is no excuse. Premium prices equal premium support. Full stop.
Imagine buying a BMW 5-series that doesn't support Apple Carplay...

AFAIK, BMW has actually started charging a subscription fee for using CarPlay.

They announced their intentions to do this in January 2018, and started enforcing it this past July. Ostensibly for ongoing testing and development. :wtf:

To be honest, that doesn't surprise me. As a premium brand, they assume their customers have bags of money anyway. That's what premium brands do, really.
Not saying it will happen, but I wouldn't be surprised if Nord starts charging for new sounds in the future. After all, if people are willing to spend the money in order to have the best, why give it away for free ?

I would be extremely surprised because Nord's entire history and business model is predicated on them not doing that.

It would certainly drive away many people.

However, I'm pretty sure that I am not the only Nord user who has never downloaded anything, because I'm quite happy with the factory settings. If (!) they made their boards less expensive, I for one wouldn't have a problem with Nord selling their sounds.

Then again, they probably won't live off customers like me. ;)
