Re: macOS 10.15 Catalina compatibility

Well. I'm afraid my patience and - worse - confidence is over. I've forked up for Superior Drummer and spent the weekend downloading it. :|

Re: macOS 10.15 Catalina compatibility

You’ve got a major PR problem when your own forums are used to promote competing product. Yeah, but it's no wonder. It's almost five months since Catalina was released. Every other piece of software I own is compatible, most of them was within weeks from Catalina's release, some (like Ableton Live)...

Thanks Lawrence!
(I did search both your site and the forum before I posted and couldn't find any info about High Sierra, only Sierra.)

I'm afraid I can't answer any of your questions, but I'm sure someone else will chime in.

However, I'd like to point out that I don't use the Mini's built in audio, so I have no idea how that'll perform.

I'm running BFD 3 in Cubase 7.5 64 bit on a late 2012 Mac Mini i7 2.3 GHz, with 16 GB RAM and a third party SSD as my sole drive. It works perfectly fine, in full details mode. In fact, I just realized that I'd forgotten to check "Load all to RAM", so apparently, I was streaming from the s...

Re: Moving Library and license to new computer

Yes as long as you have the BFD32 kits/data/audio backed up and don't delete them. They will of course have to be licensed when you add them to the BFD3 data paths. OK, so I don't have to add the BFD 2 kits using BFD 2's installer, I just have to copy the files to a suitable folder on my new Mac an...

Moving Library and license to new computer

I currently have BFD 3 installed "on top" of a previous BFD 2 installation. (I purchased BFD 3 as a download upgrade to BFD 2.) Now I'm moving to a new computer and have a couple of questions. 1) I guess I should a) de-authorize my old computer and b) authorize the new one - in that order?...

Sorry about my late reply! For some reason, notifications of replies to my forum posts here sometimes get caught by my mail host's spam filter. Anyway, I'm using a 2.6 GHz CPU/16GB RAM/256 GB SSD retina display MacBook Pro with OS X 10.8.2 (aka Mountain Lion). The OS and my DAW (Studio One V2) are b...

Actually - it can perform worse with Load All To RAM on. I have this 18 GB drum kit and though BFD certainly can't load all of it into 16 GB of RAM, it sure looks like it's trying... :o So using that kit with the Load All To RAM setting rendered me a lot of cracks'n'pops and the fans of my Mac start...

Set it to Load All To RAM and all the Details to High, them let me know how that works. If it kicks @$$, I might buy the same computer you have :lol: I tried it with Load All To RAM and it worked fine. Not that I noticed any difference in performance, it works perfectly fine when streaming too. Det...

I think your system is so far above any minimum spec that tweaking any performace options will have little or no effect. I suspect your SSD can more than cope with streaming BFD data + any audio tracks you need, and you have more than enough RAM. If you find you're running into specific problems (C...

[SOLVED] 16 GB RAM - recommended settings?

Hi, It feels like this could've been covered before and maybe it's just me not using the right search terms, but I couldn't find a good thread on this subject, so here goes: I've just got myself a new quad core Mac with 16 GB's of RAM and I'm using a 64 bit host. So what would be the optimal setting...

I'm using a mid 2011 Macbook Air, which has a pretty slow SSD by todays standards. I have a mere 4GB of RAM. It's not kosher, but I have only that single drive for everything, OS X, all apps (inc BFD2), all sound data, I'm recording to in real time - the lot. BFD 2 at full layers, 16 bits (24 bits w...

With M-Audio products, it's more or less a crap shoot with any of their MIDI devices, interface or instrument. I'm willing to bet that the only reason I haven't seen any problems with the M-Audio equipment that I own is because I have them going through a powered hub. I doubt they QA'd their stuff ...
