Hello…is this thing on?

I gather that the effort on supporting Apple Silicon is…not too enthusiastic.

What's the divvy on Big Sur on Intel, though?

It's been four months since the release of macOS 11.

Will I be able to use/reinstall Magnetic II once I upgrade?

Anybody in the know? Official support?

Any experience?

At this time Nomad Factory does not support Catalina, nor Big Sur (or M1 chips on new Mac computers), and advise users to not upgrade should they use plug-ins in sessions but stick with Mojave as the latest compatible and support OS for our plug-ins if possible. Demo versions are available prior to purchase and the website/download page shows support for up-to macOS 10.14.x.

Newer plug-ins that have an "activation code" can be authorized without issue from the plug-in GUI. For installation, simply ok the installer to run from System Preferences > Security & Privacy and proceed to auth in the plug-in having inserted on an audio track in the DAW.

We're working towards porting all older serial-based plug-ins to a new framework, refactoring code and reskinning GUI, optimizing and supporting macOS Catalina and Big Sur through Apple's notarization requirements. Given the extensive catalogue however, this will take some time with a small development team.

A workaround method to authorize older serial products, as the Software Activator which is a 32-bit application, is available. The plug-ins do work "in Catalina and lower", it's just the activation app that does not run as it's 32-bit. So...

Please try authorizing on another system with older OS using the same internet connection to get the license file and then transferring to your machine by placing in /Library/Application Support/Nomad Factory/Licenses. This works and you may try a virtual machine to do so instead if tied to an OS by the computer you have...

Here's a video example on how to create a virtual machine in which you may then run the outdated Activator to generate your license (noting you need a Windows or Mac installer image to create the virtual machine OS) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bQVAT5SntKk

Once done you will need to reboot your computer, launch DAW and rescan plug-ins (where available option).

If you still have issue, please CONTACT SUPPORT, let us know with your MAC Address and we'll generate license for you. You can find that in System Preferences > Network > Advanced > Hardware.

Note: You may view all your license, serial and activation codes at any time via the manufacturer/company help sites below. Simply, login (or re-register to sync account and orders) with your purchase e-mail address, and select the "Licenses" tab.
