Re: El Capitan

Not sure what happened with El Capitan, but I must have gotten fifteen different emails from plugin providers saying Don't Upgrade to El Capitan.
Apparently Pro Tools can run on it now… but not sure about the plugins.
I think Native Instruments recently announced their stuff will run on it. 

I worried about folks who had their machines on auto update. 

If I was smart I would download all the different OS's as they come.  That way, if I needed to upgrade and El Capitan didn't work, I could resort to Yosemite. 

But I always forget!

Agreed with everything everyone is saying. My core problem is that Steinberg has a locking system that doesn't want to play with El Capitan. Given what's at stake here (subase, wavelab, all their virtual synths) I can't help thinking they'll have to fix it soon. My best guess is that they were using that old standby, and undocumented OS feature, to make their system uncrackable, and the feature changed when Apple hardened OSX.

I can't help wondering too if the people who took a less regular approach to musical software acquisition had these problems
