        1. The latest MAC development tools do not support OS’s earlier than 10.7. As companies update their development tools to support the latest MAC OS, you will see less and less 10.6 being supported in the next releases by all software companies.

        2. I still use Snow Leopard but in order to take advantage of all the stuff I wanted to buy that wasn’t compatible, I just installed Mavericks on an external HDD – best of both worlds. Toying with the idea of trying it on an SSD instead to free up that USB port. Anyone around here done that, to testify as to whether it’s a viable option?

  1. Though all the velocity variations might be subtle to some ears, I think it does add a lot of nice variation to the grooves. It’s a very informative demo, but not a lot of pizzazz. This is all stuff that can be done in samplers, but it does put a nice GUI on it.

  2. First and foremost, the UI is so small, that you practically need and loop (magnifier) to use it. Come on guys, the trend these days is to make UI’s scale (take Madrona Labs Kaivo and Alto as great examples) I understand that you think it is a feature that is is small, but not everyone has teenage eyesight. I actually installed it and then uninstalled it because of this problem. The second thing i found is that on the stand alone version, you can go full screen, but the UI remains tiny and then I tried by using esc to go back to normal screen mode (im on a MacBook Pro 15″ retina) and it would not return. I had to kill the app in order to restore my screen. In the meantime I will just stick with NI Battery.
