Overbridge technical question


I just bought my very own Syntakt, and indeed my first piece of Elektron gear. I love it and am excited to learn it. I want to use it in my DAW, which is Ableton 9. I run it on an old computer, a 2012 iMac. Surprisingly, it still runs like a song. No latency when I record guitar or bass, Ableton and plugins load up pretty quickly, and it only crashes when I have like a million things going. My Mac OS is Sierra 10.12.1

Unfortunately! It seems Overbridge only supports 10.13 and higher—just missed the cut off.

I guess I’m wondering what’s best to do here—should I try to update the Mac OS, or should I try to find an older version of Overbridge, if that even exists? I’m a little wary of updating the OS, because I fear it will make the computer much slower. I’m not very tech-y so I could be wrong about this, and I am in general as a person averse to change lol

Any advice would be appreciated.


My crops are dying… please…

Hi, only just seen this.

I have a mid 2012 MacBook Pro and have recently upgraded to Mojave but was running High Sierra For years prior to that with no issues.

As long as you can do a bootable back up, just try it out and see what works for you :+1:

eta…the difference in performance was negligible between these three OSs, with Mojave possibly being the quickest to boot up

Thanks. I might try to find an old version of Overbridge first, but if that doesn’t work, I might just have to do this.
