  1. Hi!
    I am the creator of this synthesizer.
    I just want to say that I love macintosh, indeed, I am typing in one right now! The synth just isn´t available for mac – simple as that – no need to get wrong conclusions!

    As I get that question so often, I decided to let be very clear! Just that!

    Cheers from Oporto, Portugal!
