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.

Correct for the operating system itself, but you also have to install the software you want to use in Catalina again, which takes additional storage space if you don't integrate the "old" volume into Catalina and point to the programs folder on this "old" volume. Same for user data ifn this is located on the "old" volume.


Not sure what you mean by point the programs folder on the old volume. Mac programs do not have a registry like windows does and in most cases can run from any location. There are a few that have license servers that might have to be re-authorized, but for the most part you wouldn't have to do anything more than boot up with the version of the OS you want to use.

If you really want to keep things separate than yes you would need to duplicate your Applications Folder, but terabyte drives are cheap.

Installing the newer OS on what amounts to a separate logical partition will also install an entirely new Applications folder with the new versions, and require reinstalling all authorisations and third-party software over again.

Mac OS Catalina has now been released and the current Nord Sound Manager v7.46 is not 64 bit compliant. :-(

By all means: this is the time to start complaining about and to Nord.

No.. not correct. Most third party software will run just fine from the old applications folder.

You could also clone the existing drive and just do an inplace OS upgrade which would keep all of the existing authorizations and software in place. Obviously, you'd need to upgrade software that was incompatible with the new OS.

On the other hand there is NOTHING requiring anybody to upgrade.

The general rule is you don't upgrade production machines until you've fully tested the upgrade, but I guess there will be those that simply insist on jumping off the cliff anyway.

With that, I'm going to take the rest of my answers off the air and will not be responding further to this thread.

Another rule is, that when you put a sentence like this on your site, you could at least inform your customers when you are not going to meet the deadline:

"A 64-bit version will be available on this download page before Apple ends their support for 32-bit applications."

These last years, Apple always mentioned the final release date for macOS / OS X a couple of weeks ahead.
This year, this hasn't been the case, so I guess, the guys at nord were as much surprised as I was, since I was waiting for a final release date.
So, I guess, there's no need to panic, it should be a matter of one or two weeks. :thumbup:
These are not real problems.

Having been using the 64-bit Sound Manager software for a while now with no issues, I don’t know what Clavia is waiting for.

I hope they’re not saying “until Apple stops supporting Mojave.”
