Default miniDSP now officially available on Mac Os X

Big news: miniDSP is officially Mac OS X compatible!

Following few weeks of Beta testing by few of our community members, we found the time and energy to move all 9 plug-ins to the Mac platform. Systems requirements are as follow:
  • Intel Core™ Duo or faster processor
  • Mac OS X v10.4, v10.5 or v10.6
  • 512MB of RAM (1GB recommended)
Have fun!

Interesting. I honestly wasn't interested in your product until seeing this announcement.

So is the way it works you buy the board and then buy the appropriate software (plug-in) to activate it, or is their an "umbrella" program somewhere that I missed?

Hello,

Indeed it's a combination of hardware (miniDSP kit) + software (plug-ins).
All this is clearly detailed in the product concept page of our site as well as FAQ. Think it will answer 90% of your questions.

Hope this helps,

Dave,

Indeed no powerPC. Although we would have liked it too, it's completely out of our control. You can always email Adobe about it though.. :-)

In today's growing OS versions, it's bound to happen that some platforms won't work... Realize that it was already a lot of work to get cross-platform working and tested acccros so many OS versions (Win + Mac). Can't get everything, everybody happy I'm afraid.

Hope this answers your question,

DevTeam

Given that PowerPC Macs have not been sold for about 6 years or so that would make zero commercial sense.
While it is relatively trivial to compile windows software for intel Macs it is rather complex to compile it for PowerPC.

Last one discontinued in Aug 2006. Given the longevity of Macs there are still lots & lots of them in the field and they make ideal dedicated appliances. I'm a Mac fanatic, have yet to justify an Intel and have some 7 PPCs in daily use.

Not a fanatic, I just use Macs because windows machines are a pain in the neck in my experience. Got my quad-core MacPro in '06 after burglars made of with my blue&white G3.
Gotta love 'new-for-old' insurance, especially when owning a Mac!
