Hey folks and Happy New Year 2020!
We are getting some questions about the macOS Catalina support on our products and I’m happy to tell that 9 products comply with macOS Catalina at the moment. The two which are not yet macOS Catalina compatible are Roland JP-80×0 and Access VirusHC plug-ins.
Important thing to note about the macOS Catalina change is that new location for plug-in license and patch data has been changed. New location is at /Library/Audio/Presets/Mystery Islands Music/(plugin name)/ – You have to manually copy and paste your existing data to the new location in order to validate the license and to have access to your favorite presets.
About the JP-80×0 and VirusHC updates: JP-80×0 is not too bad to update but VirusHC has old frameworks which need to be re-written and I’ve started that process already. In fact, we are going to bring 5 new plug-in models for VirusHC along with “legacy” HC version so you can return to your projects with ease. So what does new plug-ins mean? Well, we are making new plug-in models for each of the Virus-series.
VirusHC A – works with the first generation Virus model
VirusHC B – works with Virus B, KB, Indigo, Rack and Classic
VirusHC C – works with Virus C, KC, Indigo 2, Rack XL
VirusHC TI – works with TI 1 & 2
VirusHC Snow – works with TI Snow
New updates will also include new user interfaces / skins; virus a-b, virus c, virus ti, classic, legacy, white and dark star + indigo! New frameworks design, resizable user interface and so on.. Also, individual plug-ins will make it easier to store your settings in it like default MIDI I/O for example.
Anyway, JP-80×0 and VirusHC updates are on the way and we are looking forward to publish them out within one month! :-)
There are 5 months passed since your last update here, is there a Catalina Access VirusHC Editor update now, so i can use the editor?
Thank you in advance.
Ooops.. i can not even install the application now. :(
Any workarounds for that?
No workarounds. Plug-in worked in Catalina when it was updated from previous macOS, but if one tries to install the plug-in with fresh install, it will fail. Update is not far off from being released.
Hi, here is our Access VirusHC v2 update related post: https://www.mysteryislands-music.com/access-virus-editor-librarian-v2-coming-soon/
Any updates here, does the Access VirusHC v2 run in Catalina?
For some users it does, but we have a version 3 ready which should have M1 support as well. Downloads coming this weekend!
