I would like to point something before you upgrade to Catalina public beta or later this fall. 32bits warning are more and more here. It was the case for full 32bits apps and vst. Now as everyone on Sierra we have message box to alert on future compatibility even with dependencies. Catalina will drop even more 32bits. That’s not really a problem, most of big companies will make (and probably started) to update their dependencies and components to 64bits.
But I would like to point out another thing is MacOS, iOS, iPadOS and tvOS will have connections even more to permit more actions hand to hand. To make it work with iMac and iOS, Catalina drop iPhone 6 and iPad Air. iPhone 6s and iPad Air 2 will be compatible for the last system os iteration.
So we are close to a MacOS with full incompatibilities with everything 32bits even parts of a software… and if you want at this point continu with iPhone, iPad and Mac you will probably have to renew your devices to newer version (or at least compatible one…)
It’s the perfect time with Sierra 10.14.6 to reinstall your computer, install everything you need to work and make an image disc (backup) before to do anything with Catalina. If you want to be safe and continu to make music in 2020 without any issue (Drivers, VST, Apps, Devices etc…)
If you’re serious with your computer, trust me. Be safe from this point… I feel like we will have some serious issue with Catalina for quite some time until every company make 64bits happen for good (including dependencies).
NB: i have by the past recommended for batch sample processing to use Myriad from Aurchitect Audio Software, also Triumph (for Audio editing) This apps are Gone ! If you reinstall your Mac and purchased this software… Try to copy paste preferences, every file you can backup to maybe have the chance to get it working a bit more. there’s a big problem with Aurchitect, you will not be able to activate anymore as website is gone, social media is gone… and you will not be able to contact the developper. Impossible to activate as it’s pass (originally) by the website to make it happen. This apps are lost. Your purchased is lost (as mine too). from that point. (You may have only one way is the last version from piracy, I generally not talking about this way but if you really need it that’s the only way to bypass activation today… even if you own the serial)
