    1. I’m on 10.6 and installed and runs fine for me. Not sure why their website lists 10.7 as a requirement… I do agree that more devs should continue to support 10.6. 23% of mac users are still on 10.6 – more than any other OSX, and probably even higher for musicians. NI has recently started putting out installers that won’t let you install unless you’re running 10.7+. Luckily, you can hack into the installers using Pacifist and unpack that way. Software still works, so not sure why this TOTAL DICK MOVE by NI! Anyway…. Fracture works fine on 10.6 Thanks Glitchmachines!

  1. does this plugins random function only operate globally or do you have the choice of using the random function on just the parameters you wish?

  2. Probably because the advent of the Internet has ushered in a new age of information sharing spawning millions of new and interesting informational hubs for us to all partake in, the participation of wonderous acts of knoledge exchange such as we have never known in places just like these known as forums or public squares if you will that span out seemingly almost forever across the cosmos, this super information highway the World Wide Web also known as the www, less one w for then it would be called the World Wide Web of wankers of course that title would have only made sense if people actually logged on to Internet forums for the sole purpose of not giving answers in threads where questions are present.

    Btw I’d like to know the answer to that question myself?
