Overbridge 2.0.44

Ok thank you for your response.
If we need beta test I can help as nothing will work until the official release on my computer.

Can anyone put up the previous version of Overbridge? I had it working fine with Big Sur by disabling SIP and sudo kextload /Library/Extensions/ElektronOverbridge.kext. It looks like the new version does not have ElektronOverbridge.kext but does not work with Big Sur. Thanks.

My A4 and AR mk1 still no recognized by OB with ableton. Am I the only one? My OS is Windows 10

Hi,

I’m still blocked with this issue. I have a red message in the AR/A4 plugin window " The paired device has an incomptaible OS version. Please shut down your daw etc…"
I have the latest update : A4-> 1.50A AR -> 1.60A OB -> 2.0.44.
Thanks for your help

Did you uninstall OB, restart your computer, install the new OB, restart your computer again?

This installs all of the new plugins too. Seems like the old plugins are not being removed first.

I always delete .dll manually, uninstall OB, reboot, install the new OB, Cut/Paste the new .dll to my Custom Folder and Restart. Never had any issues.

I’m really disappointed about Elektron. Elektron gives the impression like uuuupppps Apple invented a new OSX and we did not know about it and we were totally surprised of it. I have tested the beta version of Big Sur already in August as it was released for developers in June. Did you hear Elektron for Developers!!! (macOS Big Sur - Wikipedia). I can not understand that a Premium music hardware manufacturer need over a half year and can not even offer a running Beta version Overbridge Big Sur until now. What you are offfering is really a desaster of service and you should think about to leave this market and make place for professionell suppliers. Maybe you have you have a running Overbridge Big Sur ready when 11.7 is released before Apple presents their next generation of OSX :grin:. …That all makes me speechless.

In my view, it’s up to the operating system to be backward compatible.
Not to hardware suppliers, they can and usually do, but how do you demand that?
Avoid updating before the drivers and software are ready.
Every time it’s the same Apple changes and their users cry over software and hardware which are generally small teams with much less resources but never question Apple’s policy on this subject. And this is valid in areas other than music.

I have no knowledge of the inner workings of Elektron, the code, etc. but from my own experience as a developer it is not ever as easy as one might hope. I’m sure they would like things to be all ready and perfect just as much as anyone else. Unfortunately that is not always possible.

Maybe it’s time for you to sell your Elektron gear and move on to the professionell suppliers instead.

I get your frustration - it is a pain that it doesnt work with Big Sur, but to be fair to Elektron Apple do change their OS compatibility an awful lot - pretty much every new major OS version breaks a lot of legacy software. There are many music software vendors who dont have compatible software yet so Elektron are not an outlier here… for example ableton live is not yet officially supported and they advise not upgrading to big sur yet…
In this case, I’m completely ok with giving Elektron the benefit of the doubt and saving my ire for Apple…

Isnt the main benefit of Big Sur just new emojis anyway? :slight_smile: (unless you have an M1, in which case lots will be incompatible and have issues)

You too, with a heavy heart, had to give up your Kore? I am sad about it years later.

This is a unique situation as well. As I think has been discussed in other threads, Big Sur brings about one of the biggest security changes to MacOS in a long time with the change from kernel extensions to system extensions. This directly affects third party apps/drivers. These extensions will now run at user level and not the OS level, and that’s a big change. I won’t pretend to know the specifics but can safely say it wouldn’t normally take this long for third parties to update, and Elektron is far from alone in this.
If you bought an M1 machine I understand the frustration at waiting but if you just updated and expected all this to work in a few weeks, then I’m afraid that was never going to happen with Big Sur.

Is the whole industry nothing but amateurs? Geeeeez

re: Kore. Yea, I got burned on that too.
I didn’t have the hardware, I used the free Kore player with some paid FX packs. Fortunately I’ve found some alternatives, but it took a long time to find them, and it’s not as elegant a solution.

Does anybody know a way to download this version of Overbridge? I’m on osx10.11 and can’t use 2.0.47 which is the only version available on the Elektron website.

Nevermind, found it on the wayback machine.
